The Biophysicist Article Types
The Biophysicist accepts articles in a variety of formats. Learn more about the different article types below.
Novel Learning and Teaching Approaches: These articles include new methods of teaching experimental and theoretical biophysics at the molecular, cellular, and systems levels. Articles and tutorials describing novel approaches to the teaching of specific subject matter, active learning methods, assessment techniques, or curricular design will provide insights into the intellectual infrastructure in the field. This helps ensure that biophysics-related biology, chemistry, engineering, or physics topics can be taught effectively. Scholarly articles on the intellectual history of biophysics or on the scientific impact of key biophysics papers are also welcomed, but they should include discussion of their use in teaching and learning biophysics. Novel research findings per se, should be submitted to research journals, such as Biophysical Journal.
Biophysics and Related Disciplines: Reports highlight newsworthy information on the role of biophysics in related areas (e.g., chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, technology, and health) with a focus on recent advances that impact biophysics summarized from the scientific literature of those fields. These should be written at the level of an upper-level undergraduate student in biophysics.
