Journal of the Royal Society Interface
Journal of the Royal Society Interface is an international journal publishing reviews, research articles and short reports from the interface between the physical sciences, including mathematics, and the life sciences. It provides a high-quality forum to publish rapidly and interact across this boundary in two main ways: J. R. Soc. Interface publishes research applying chemistry, engineering, materials science, mathematics and physics to the biological and medical sciences; it also highlights discoveries in the life sciences that allow advances in the physical sciences. Both sides of the interface are considered equally. Accepted articles are published immediately online and the hard copy version of the journal appears every month.
Free access is allowed to all review articles from the moment of online publication and to every article 12 months after publication in the journal.
The 2008 Impact Factor of JRS Interface is 3.61
J. R. Soc. Interface welcomes articles on a diverse range of topics including, but not limited to:
- chemical biology
- infectious disease dynamics
- medical physics
- nanoscience and computer science (as applied to the life sciences)
- synthetic biology
- systems biology
- theoretical biology
- tissue engineering
The review process gives equal weighting to sciences on both sides of the intreface. The criteria for selection are scientific excellence, originality and potential interest to a wide spectrum of scientists. All papers are peer-reviewed to a high standard and published rapidly under the control of the Editor and his distinguished Editorial Board.
Papers must not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. The Editor has final authority in all matters relating to publication.
The Royal Society's electronic-submission and peer-review service provides J. R. Soc. Interface authors with the facility to submit their papers online. The service allows you to upload files in a reliable and user-friendly way, using a web-based system. When your paper is received, an immediate acknowledgement is sent that details how you can track your contribution online.
