Trends in Biochemical Sciences (TiBS) keeps its readers up-to-date and well informed about recent advances in biochemistry and molecular biology through succinct articles. Our goal is to provide articles that do more than simply summarize the literature; they synthesize the data, put forward new ideas, provide insight into the direction of a field, and ultimately have a unique point of view. In addition to topical Reviews, which provide the main focus of each issue, Opinion articles provide a platform for debate and hypothesis where new ideas can be discussed. In addition, we publish a wide variety of very short articles that are designed to inform and provoke thought in a lively and widely-accessible manner. These including interviews (Trendstalks), discussion of issues at the interface of biochemistry and the general public (Science and Society), discussion of issues pertaining to the scientific community or the advancement of science (Scientific Life), highlights of exciting recent developments in the literature (Spotlights) and single-point hypotheses (Forums). Responses to previously-published TiBS content are welcome and encouraged in the form of Letters.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Trends in Biochemical Sciences

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
