The first international journal dedicated to publishing reviews and original articles from this exciting field, the Journal of Biophotonics covers the broad range of research on interactions between light and biological material. The journal offers a platform where the physicist communicates with the biologist and where the clinical practitioner learns about the latest tools for the diagnosis of diseases. As such, the journal is highly interdisciplinary, publishing cutting edge research in the fields of life sciences, medicine, physics, chemistry, and engineering. The coverage extends from fundamental research to specific developments, while also including the latest applications.
The main fields of application are:
- Advanced spectroscopy
- Drug discovery and development
- Food an drug analysis
- Imaging and microscopy
- Life sciences
- Manipulation and preparation
- Medicine (detection and therapy)
- Optical biosensors
Featured technologies are:
- Advanced optical microscopy & nanoscopy
- High volume analysisNon-invasive physiological monitoring
- Optical biosensing
- Optical tomography
- Photonic nano-manipulation
- Spectroscopic methods on a cellular and molecular leve
New Impact Factor 2012: 3.099 which is evidence of the acceptance and reputation of the journal in this multidisciplinary field of biophotonics.
Readership: Biophotonics is truly interdisciplinary, thus the journal appeals to scientists such as physicists, chemists, and biologists, as well as physicians and engineers interested in the application of light in life sciences
