From the Journal: Biophysics Reviews
Furthering AIP Publishing’s mission to make research accessible, discoverable, and permanently available
MELVILLE, N.Y., November 16, 2020 – AIP Publishing is pleased to announce the first published articles from its latest journal, Biophysics Reviews (BPR).
BPR’s mission is to publish articles that have the potential to influence thinking in the biophysics field or report a significant discovery. In both the reviews and research articles, the editors look to provide readers with the ideas and tools necessary to advance the field of biophysics.
“Biophysicists, and the scientists and engineers who build and use the tools of biophysics, need a journal and community ‘space’ that appreciates the expeditionary nature of the field,” said Kevin Kit Parker, editor-in-chief of BPR.
Three articles have been accepted by BPR for publication in November 2020. They were selected by an in-house team of scientific editors that manage the manuscript workflow and review process.
“Mechanisms of ligand binding,” from Enrico Di Cera, reviews basic mechanisms of ligand binding, with special emphasis on induced fit, conformational selection, and their mathematical foundations to provide rigorous context for the analysis and interpretation of experimental data. Di Cera said many processes in chemistry and biology involve interactions of a ligand with its molecular target with interest in the mechanism governing such interactions dominating theoretical and experimental analysis for over a century.
“Physicochemical parameters that underlie inkjet printing for medical applications,” from Sina Azizi Machekposhtia, Saeid Movahed, and Roger J. Narayan, looks at 3D printing technologies, specifically reviewing the recent advancements in inkjet dispensing technology. The researchers examine various steps in inkjet printing and the parameters that affect the printing process.
“Dynamic azopolymeric interfaces for photoactive cell instruction,” from Paolo Antonio Netti and Selene De Martino, reviews azopolymers as a candidate for various applications in cellular control, including cell alignment, migration, gene expression, and others. The authors believe azopolymers can be used not only to manipulate cells but also as probe for mechanistic studies of cellular crosstalk in response to chemical and mechanical stimuli.
The journal will focus on experimental and theoretical research in biophysics and its applications in other branches of science, medicine, and engineering. It welcomes submissions of comprehensive and authoritative research and reviews covering all areas of biophysics.
“Biophysics Reviews is designed to follow the precedent set by Applied Physics Reviews, which publishes high-impact science that is a must-read for both emerging and experienced scientists in the field,” said Alix Vance, CEO of AIP Publishing. “BPR will help the physical sciences community stay informed about exciting new advances in biophysics and further AIP Publishing’s mission to make research accessible, discoverable, and permanently available to the communities who can and will use the findings to advance science.”
