01 Jun., 2022 On the J-STAGE web page for Advance online publication of each article, the Abstract and the Graphical Abstract are displayed.
26 Mar., 2022 A new preprint server, Jxiv, which has been developed and is operated by JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency), started on 24 March 2022, and the manuscript posted on Jxiv before submission to the BPPB is not considered as publication.
This announcement is included in the updated Instruction for Authors on 26 March 2022.
05 Jan., 2022 From Volume 19, each article published in Biophysics and Physicobiology (BPPB) is identified by the Article ID not by the sequential page numbers. Thus, Formatting Templates and Instruction for Authors have been updated, and they are available from the BPPB web pages.
10 Dec., 2021 Special Issue: "The Oosawa Lectures on DIY Statistical Mechanics" has been published by Editorial team for the Special Issue on Oosawa's Lectures
20 Nov., 2021 Instruction for Authors and the formatting Template for each category have been updated. In addition, the Notes for manuscript preparation are available from the web page of Instruction for Authors.
17 Nov., 2021 An article with the title "Announcing changes to the publishing procedures of “Biophysics and Physicobiology” (BPPB) - the Biophysical Society of Japan’s English language biophysics journal" by Haruki Nakamura is published as a Commentary in Biophysical Reviews that is the IUPAB's official journal.
12 Nov., 2021 The BPPB web pages have been fully updated.
01 Oct., 2021 Style of articles in Biophysics and Physicobiology is changed with largely reducing the publication time and cost. See the updated Instruction for Authors.
22 Jun., 2021 The CSL (Citation Style language) for References list in articles of the BPPB has been registered at the GitHub site, and the details are described in the revised "Instructions for Authors” updated on 19th June 2021.
27 Nov., 2020 A preprint server, bioRxiv, starts a direct transfer service (B2J) of the manuscript, which has been submitted to bioRxiv, to the BPPB, after concluding a contract between Biophysical Society of Japan (BSJ) and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSH) on 11 November 2020. The details are shown on the bioRxiv webpage.
