Portland Press Limited are delighted to announce the 2011 Impact Factor for the Journal at 3.711 (released by Thomson Reuters in the 2011 JCR), reflecting the quality of the science presented at the Biochemical Society's meetings and those that it supports.
The Journal, which has recently had a redesign and a reorgnization of its website, is owned by the Biochemical Society and is supported by an international calendar of meetings which are published as authoritative reviews that can be accessed via new online subject collections.
For more than forty years, the exciting science presented at the Biochemical Society Annual Symposium, Focused Meetings and Society-supported Independent Meetings has been captured in Biochemical Society Transactions as a series of mini-reviews – the quality of the science is reflected in the Journal's current Impact Factor of 3.989. The Journal provides researchers with a timely snapshot of the latest developments across a range of topics in the cellular and molecular biosciences and is an essential teaching resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The extensive Biochemical Society Transactions archive has been digitized and is available online to all members of the Biochemical Society and subscribers to the journal. The archive, which extends back to 1973, includes Medal Lectures from the many eminent molecular bioscientists who have been recognized by the Biochemical Society for notable achievements in their respective fields, as well as papers from the hundreds of esteemed researchers who have presented their work at the Society's meetings over the decades.
To facilitate discovery within this unrivalled collection in the molecular biosciences, Portland Press Limited has redeveloped the Biochemical Society Transactions website by introducing Gateways – new themed collections within the online journal:
