The former journal published on behalf of IUBMB, Biochemical Education, has been reorganized and its title changed to reflect a broadened scope. The aim of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education (BAMBEd) is to assist in the teaching of biochemistry and molecular biology at the college, graduate school and medical school level throughout the world. The main intended audience of BAMBEd is instructors at universities and colleges who teach biochemistry, molecular biology, and related fields such as microbiology and cell biology. Articles are welcomed on teaching techniques and practice in all areas related to these fields, and on methods of assessment of the effectiveness of new educational approaches. Articles are also encouraged on research in biochemistry and molecular biology education. Short reviews will be accepted or solicited from time to time on key areas of biochemical knowledge from workers active in the field. Such reviews are intended to provide background material for the preparation of lectures. Articles providing details of simple, tried and tested, laboratory experiments are especially encouraged. Those interested in secondary school outreach may submit papers aimed at increasing awareness of college and university faculty toward possibilities for contributing to the ongoing education of secondary school teachers.
Each issue will contain reviews of books and other teaching aids such as websites, videotapes, transparency/slide sets and computer software. Many of the pages will contain full-color figures. There is also a companion website that will contain two levels of access: Full-text access is available to all materials for subscribers and access to the Table of Contents and Abstracts is available for all visitors. In addition, a fully accessible section of the website is being developed that will be updated frequently and will contain reviewed multimedia materials such as computer graphics-based tutorials on macromolecular structure and Java- and Shockwave-based tutorials on most aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology. We hope that this new site for instructional tools will become a general repository for multimedia materials valuable to biochemical educators.
SUBMISSION OF ARTICLES
IUBMB Life is devoted to the rapid publication of the most novel and significant Original Research Articles, Critical Reviews and Hypothesis Papers in the broadly defined fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and molecular medicine.
IUBMB Life especially encourages articles that integrate several biological disciplines, or which successfully relate basic biology to human pathology or medicine. All articles are reviewed rapidly by acknowledged experts and, if accepted, are published in as few as four months. Consistent with the ideals of IUBMB, papers are published on the basis of exceptional scientific merit, originality, and wide biological significance.

BioFactors is an international journal aimed at identifying and increasing our
understanding of the precise biochemical effects and roles of the large number of trace
substances that are required by living organisms. These include vitamins and trace
elements, as well as growth factors and regulatory substances made by cells themselves.
The elucidation, in a particular organism or cell line, of the roles of substances active
in trace quantities, is frequently applicable directly to many other forms of life.
Biotechnology and Applied Biochemistry publishes scholarly articles relating to
commercial biotechnology and applied biochemistry, for example, the development of cell
culture systems to provide biotherapeutics of established commercial value, the downstream
processing of naturally occurring macromolecules and synthetic macromolecules, including
purification, formulation and validation studies. Characterization studies will be
expected to address directly regulatory and clinical issues.
It is the primary objective of this publication to encourage the bridging of the gap between clinicians of all relevant specialities and biomedical scientists working in areas from biochemistry and molecular and cell biology to physiology, pharmacology and pathology. A spectrum of topics in medicine will be selected to illustrate not only the molecular insights that derive from the application of basic science, but also the variety of challenging problems that medicine is able to offer the basic scientist.
The Editors and publisher anticipate that most of the authors contributing to the series will be practising clinical scientists who will develop their own personal perspective as an extended review on the molecular aspects of a field of medicine in which they are working, addressing themselves both to the doctor who is ill-at-ease with basic science, and to the basic scientist with little awareness of the problems of clinical practice.
Trends in Biochemical Sciences (TIBS) is an official publication of the IUBMB from Elsevier Science. Every month, TIBS publishes short reviews, comment and analysis on the cutting edge of biochemistry and molecular biology research in an easy-to-read, full-colour format. Authors are encouraged to write articles for a broad audience, making TIBS an easy way to keep up with important discoveries in biochemistry, and an excellent teaching tool for lecturers and their students. TIBS presents regular feature articles on signal transduction, protein structure, molecular biology on the Internet, transcription and translation.
