Biochimica et Biophysica Acta: General Subjects

Biochimica et Biophysica Acta: General Subjects - ISSN 0304-4165
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.052 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.204 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 3.77 (2020) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 4.137 (2020) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

BBA General Subjects accepts for submission either original, hypothesis-driven studies or reviews covering subjects in biochemistry and biophysics that have general scientific interest for a wide audience. Interdisciplinary studies are encouraged. Descriptive studies without biochemical or biophysical mechanistic evidence and insights are discouraged. Preferred topics are:

  • biomedicine: fundamental and emerging topics in biochemistry/biophysics with potential medical implications
  • nanobiology/nanotechnology: nanoparticles, nanotoxicology, nanomedicine
  • omics: genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, glycomics, bioinformatics experimentally addressing a defined biological question
  • chemical biology: chemical compounds, drug mechanisms, synthesis of novel compounds, click chemistry
  • structural biology: crystallography, NMR, multimeric proteins, protein dynamics, nucleic acids
  • novel complexes: nucleic acids, pure natural compounds, synthetic compounds, protein complexes, nucleic acid derivatives
  • cellular signaling: receptor signaling, protein phosphorylation cascades, phosphatases, secondary messengers, transcription regulation, gene expression
  • glycobiology: sugar metabolites and metabolism, glycosylated proteins, membrane protein, glycosylation, glycomics
  • redox biology: redox switches, glutathione and thioredoxin systems, oxygen and nitrogen radical species, superoxide, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical, nitric oxide, peroxides, hypoxia, redox regulation of transcription factors
  • neurobiology: neuronal growth factors and nerve signaling, glial cells, autonomic and central nervous systems
  • stem cells: differentiation, stem cell isolation and cultivation, growth factors
  • imaging methodologies
  • mechanistic characterization of compounds having biochemical importance and general interest (drug leads, toxicants, nutrients, metabolites). BBA General Subjects does not consider studies on the biological effects of crude extracts of natural sources unless the exact active molecules are identified, singularly characterized and evaluated.
