Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry

Online ISSN: 2398-970X

Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed articles in all areas of molecular biophysics and biochemistry. MBB will focus on complex relationships and mechanisms that control biological processes, interactions among proteins, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and between proteins or nucleic acids with small metabolites and also includes structural studies, energetics, molecular design/engineering, signalling, novel biophysical methods, computational chemistry and genomics as well as prominent areas in the molecular biology and genetics of prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and viruses. This journal will be of particular interest to biophysicists, biologists, biochemists, cell physiologists, systems biologists, and molecular biologists.

Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry will feature original research, review papers, clinical studies, editorials, expert opinion and perspective papers, commentaries, and book reviews.

Alexandru Babes

I graduated as a physicist at the University of Bucharest in 1995, with a diploma in Biophysics. Following a MSc in Neurobiology at the Faculty of Biology of the same institution, I obtained my PhD in Biology in 2002, with a thesis focused on the biophysics of ion pumps and transporters. Most of the experimental part of my PhD work was carried out at the Max Planck Institut for Biophysics in Frankfurt, Germany. Following my PhD I shifted my focus on cellular neuroscience, working on sensory transduction in mammalian primary afferent neurons. I was the beneficiary of an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral research fellowship at the Institute for Physiology and Experimental Pathophysiology in Erlangen, Germany, where I continued my work on Transient Receptor Potential ion channels and voltage-gated sodium channels and their modulation in pathophysiological states, such as inflammation and diabetic neuropathy. Since 2008 I am a professor of Neurobiology at the Faculty of Biology, University of Bucharest, where I also lead a research group working on cellular and molecular mechanisms of thermoreception and nociception in the peripheral nervous system. I have co-authored 26 research articles and reviews in international peer-reviewed journals, including Nature, Nature Medicine, Nature Communications and the Journal of Neuroscience.

Publication Charges

Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry is an Open Access journal and we do not charge the end user when accessing a manuscript or any article. This allows the scientific community to view, download, distribution of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited, under the term of "Creative Commons Attribution License". In line with other open access journals we provide a flat fee submission structure on the acceptance of a peer-reviewed article which covers in part the entirety of the publication pathway (the article processing charge). The process includes our maintenance, submission and peer review systems and international editing, publication and submission to global indexing and tracking organisations and archiving to allow instant access to the whole article and associated supplementary documents. We also have to ensure enough investment to secure a sustainable model which ethically, legally and financially stable.

The publication charges for Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry are GBP 690.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why are your charges set at these levels?

All articles published in OA Text are open access. Open Access publishing implies that all readers, anywhere in the world, are allowed unrestricted to full text of articles, immediately on publication in OA Text Journals. The Article Publication Charges pay for the editorial and production costs of the journal, for hosting the website, publishing articles online, preparing HTML , PDF and XML versions of the articles and submitting the articles in electronic citation database like CrossRef.

Our financial goals are to:

  • Recover capitalization costs;
  • Produce sufficient revenue to allow for a sustainable and scalable publishing program, under continuous development;
  • Bend the publication-charge cost downward over time.

Who will pay the APC?

Corresponding author or Co-authors has to make the payment on acceptance of the article.

When should I pay?

Corresponding author or the paying institutions should arrange for the payment once they are notified regarding acceptance of the article. APC is exempted for cases in which a wavier agreement has been made in-prior to submission.

*We request an immediate attention towards the payment as the articles will not be published unless the charges have been paid.

How do I pay?

Authors or institutions can make payments by two modes as per their convenience.

  1. Wire/Bank transfer
  2. Card payment

Can I be eligible for wavier on APC?

The waiver request will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will be provided accordingly.

*The Waiver requests must be made during the submission process and will not be accepted after  processing of the manuscript.

Do I have to pay if my manuscript is rejected?

No, Article processing charges will not be applicable for articles rejected by the Editorial office.

Withdrawal Charges

Are reprints of my article included in the article processing charges (APCs)?

No, Article processing charges (APCs) do not include the charges for the reprints. Reprints facility is optional and should be order separately.
