Biophysics & biophysical chemistry are an important part of PCCP. We have showcased some of our great content in this area in our series of themed issues and online collections:
- Web collection: Biophysics and biophysical chemistry in PCCP
- Just published: Theoretical chemical physics of biological systems
- Nano-bio: the interface between bio-systems and nano-devices
- Biomolecular structures: from isolated molecules to living cells
- Molecular mechanisms of the photostability of life
- Water in biological systems
- Advances in mass spectrometry for biological science
- Homochirality and origin of life
PCCP welcomes submissions in the areas of biophysics & biophysical chemistry. Submissions to PCCP should focus on the physical chemistry / chemical physics / modelling of the biomaterial in question; with future developments and forward-looking research especially welcome. Papers should be written in a style so that a non-biophysicist can have a good understanding of the work.
PCCP encourages submissions in these key areas:
- High-level theory/simulations; especially those dealing with methodological innovations or fundamental aspects of molecular dynamics
- Single molecule microscopies and spectroscopies
- Advanced spectroscopic techniques (fluorescence, plasmonic , magnetic resonance, IR) and their new applications to study biological systems
- Advanced molecular kinetics/thermodynamics
- Optical tweezer force measurements
- Novel optics
- Advanced mass spectrometry approaches
- Conformational dynamics
- Solvent or water dynamics
Please note that classical biochemistry studies, standard or routine simulations, and specialist topics such as genetics, proteomics and bioinformatics are not suitable for publication in PCCP.
We invite you to submit your latest high-quality biophysics & biophysical chemistry research to PCCP.
There is also still time to submit to the PCCP themed issue on Biophysical Studies on Protein Misfolding and Amyloid Diseases before 15 December – find out more information
