Originally named Archivos de Biología y Medicina Experimentales, Biological Research was founded in 1964. For 49 years the journal has been dedicated to publishing articles across the scope of experimental biology. With an Impact Factor of 1.12, it is ranked second out of all Chilean journals.
The research focus of Biological Research’s Editor-in-Chief, Dr Manuel J. Santos (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile), is the biogenesis of cellular organelles, particularly peroxisomes. A pioneer in this field, he discovered a new type of human genetic disease, the peroxisomal biogenesis disorders, which include Zellweger Syndrome. More recently his research has centred on studying the role of peroxisomes in Alzheimer’s disease, and he also works in the field of Bioethics.
Biological Research welcomes submissions in any area of experimental biology. Please visit the journal’s website to find out more about the journal, to view its expert Editorial Board, and to submit an article.
