Since 1964, BioScience has presented readers with timely and authoritative overviews of current research in biology, accompanied by essays and discussion sections on education, public policy, history, and the conceptual underpinnings of the biological sciences.
A peer-reviewed, heavily cited, monthly journal with content written and edited for accessibility to researchers, educators, and students alike, BioScience is provided to all AIBS members in print and online as a part of regular AIBS dues. BioScience includes articles about research findings and techniques, advances in biology education, professionally written feature articles about the latest frontiers in biology, discussions of professional issues, book reviews, news about AIBS, a policy column (Washington Watch), and an education column (Eye on Education). Roundtables, forums, and viewpoint articles offer the perspectives of opinion leaders and invite further commentary.
Occasional special sections in BioScience provide an in-depth look at important topics. Recent special sections have addressed ecological boundaries, protected areas, acid rain, science and public policy, the US Long Term Ecological Research network, and agricultural bioterrorism.
Authors who wish to share their expertise with BioScience readers are encouraged to submit articles through ScholarOne manuscripts. The editor-in-chief welcomes presubmission inquiries at bios...@aibs.org.
Individual members of AIBS can access the current issue or browse the comprehensive archives, and nonmembers can browse free content and purchase individual articles, here.
