About the Journal

The International Journal of Biomedical Science (IJBS, ISSN 1550-9702) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by the Master Publishing Group. IJBS is dedicated to increasing the understanding of human health and disease. IJBS provides a venue for scientists in all disciplines with the ultimate aim of improving human health. The journal also aims to promote translation of basic research into clinical investigation and convert clinical evidence into practice. The journal features works of exceptional significance in all areas related to medicine, and biology, including basic research and clinical investigations. We uphold papers that cross disciplines and encourage papers addressing universal problems of human health.  

During the last century, medicine has increasingly become dependent on progress in science. However, as a profession, it is based on a variety of traditions using special skills previously regarded as a kind of art. These traditions can be grouped into two major ones: Oriental and Western. Traditional medicine, despite the fact that it is not based on science, offers many benefits for patients. We therefore need to understand scientifically traditional medicine, irrespective of its origins, because that is the only way to assure reproducibility of various medical treatments. We encourage authors to report scientific research dealing with traditional Western or Oriental medicine.

Basic research/studies: IJBS will cover but is not restricted to: advances in molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, and parasitology, cell biology, cytology and histology, pathology, pharmacology, toxicology, cellular biochemistry, cell and tissue research, pathogenic and animal models and all basic studies in the medical field.

This scope extends to additional areas including: genomic approaches to identify and characterize parameters of biological control in the context of control of the cell cycle & cell growth control and structure-function relationships; compartmentalization of nucleic acids and regulatory proteins within the nucleus and cytoplasm; the dynamics of intranuclear trafficking, placement and assembly of regulatory machinery for gene expression to the development, organization or remodeling of tissues; the mechanisms involved in assembly processes used by cells and viruses including signaling mechanisms mediating transcription;  regulation of cell reproduction or differentiation; and animal-based studies including pharmaceutical development.

Clinical investigations will cover but are not limited to: cardiology, clinical epidemiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, gerontology, hematology, hepatology, immunology, nephrology, neuropathology, oncology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, obstetrics and gynecology, physiology and radiology, rheumatology, vascular biology.

This scope extends widely from scientific principles of conventional to alternative medicine; from preventive to emergency medicine; from public health to enviromental health; from sports medicine to arthritis and rheumatism; from pediatrics or internal medicine to surgery; from rehabilitation to anaesthesia, respiratory and critical care medicine; from osteoporosis, metabolism, genetics to neuropsychiatry, arteriosclerosis thrombosis and clinical laboratory science.
