Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling (TBioMed)

London - United Kingdom

Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling (TBioMed) is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal adopting a broad definition of "biology" and focusing on theoretical ideas and models associated with developments in biology and medicine. Mathematicians, biologists and clinicians of various specialisms, philosophers and historians of science are all contributing to the emergence of novel concepts in an age of systems biology, bioinformatics and computer modelling. This is the field in which TBioMed operates. Theoretical issues have become as topical as any other research activity and TBioMed offers the efficient, high-quality peer-review service that is needed to allow the timely dissemination of research. Being an open access publication, the journal reaches the widest possible audience. Comments from reviewers and other interested readers can be posted online to encourage debate, creating an ideal forum for communication of theoretical work.
