About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The Journal "Biomath" publishes original mathematical results relevant to applications of mathematical methods or mathematical models in biosciences or embedded in such applications. These results should include deeper and substantial involvement of mathematical theory and non-routine mathematical methodologies. Furthermore "Biomath" publishes papers on novel applications of more familiar mathematical techniques and analyses of biological problems which indicate the need for new mathematical approaches. Special attention is given to approaches that are outside the scope of mainstream journals on mathematical and theoretical biology. "Biomath" welcomes original papers using mathematical and computational tools to the study of phenomena in the broad fields of biology, ecology, epidemiology, medicine, pharmaco-kinetics, biotechnology, bioengineering, environmental science, etc. Subject areas such as conservation ecology, diseases at the interface with wildlife, bioreactors, chemostats, biofilms, signal pathways, metabolic networks, enzyme kinetics, catalyses, neural networks, medical imaging, synaptic transmission etc. are especially welcome.

The BIOMATH journal is published both electronically and in printed form.

Peer Review Process

A blind peer review policy is followed. Research articles are reviewed independently by at least two reviewers. Third reviewer is appointed when (i) the expertise of the two reviewers does not fully cover the areas substantially involved in the paper, or (ii) when the two reviewers make significantly different recommendations.

Publication Frequency

The journal publishes two issues annually (July and December). For every issue a continuous publishing mode is followed. Articles are published as soon as they are ready and added to the current issue's Table of Contents.

Hard copies are printed when an issue is complete.

Open Access Policy

No fees are charged to authors for article submission or processing. Online publications are funded through volunteer work, donations and grants.
