A new open access journal from Cambridge University Press - QRB Discovery - will provide an outlet for new discoveries in the burgeoning field of biophysics. Its launch this week coincides with the annual conference of the Biophysical Society and promises those working in the field a fast, transparent way to publish cutting edge results.
Biopyhsics applies approaches and methods traditionally used in physics and maths to study the living world, from molecules and cells right up to populations of animals and plants. This interdisciplinary approach has a huge number of applications, including new ways to overcome disease, eradicate global hunger and produce renewable energy sources.
The focus for QRB Discovery will be on biological phenomena that can be described and analysed from a molecular angle.
A sister title to the existing Press journal, Quarterly Reviews of Biophysics, its Editor-in-Chief will be Professor Bengt Nordén from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.
