Journal of Biological Rhythms

Official Publication of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms

eISSN: 15524531 | ISSN: 07487304 | Current volume: 39 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly
Journal of Biological Rhythms primarily offers papers describing original research into all aspects of biological rhythms. Emphasis is placed on circadian and seasonal rhythms, but papers on other rhythms are also published. In addition to original research papers, the Journal publishes reviews, commentaries, editorials, letters, and other items of interest related to biological rhythms. Research in circadian, seasonal, and other biological rhythms is interdisciplinary. Studies using a variety of genetic, biochemical, physiological, pharmacological, behavioral, epidemiological, clinico-pathological, and modeling approaches to understand the nature, mechanisms, and functions of biological rhythms in all species are welcome. Rhythms are placed within the context of the functional significance of these rhythms for the health and well-being of relevant organisms, including humans.

Every other month, the Journal presents work at the leading edge of understanding the basic nature, mechanisms, and functions underlying the generation, entrainment, and expression of biological rhythms in plants, animals, and humans.

Some of the important topics discussed include:

  • Sleep-Wake Cycles

  • Impact and Role of Rhythms in Health and Disease

  • Rhythms and Depression

  • Jet Lag and Shift Work

  • Hormonal and Metabolic Rhythms

  • Behavioral and Performance Rhythms

  • Reproductive Cycles

  • Photoperiodism, Seasonal Cycles, and Annual Cycles

  • Plant Rhythms and Their Mechanisms

  • Hibernation and Migration

  • Cellular Clock Mechanisms

  • Neuroanatomy and Neurobiology of Circadian Systems

  • Melatonin and Pineal Gland

  • Molecular Basis of Circadian Timing

  • Identification of Genes Underlying Rhythmicity

  • Control of Gene Expression by Clock Proteins

  • Comparison of Rhythm Mechanisms among Life Forms

  • Mechanisms of Photoreception and Photoentrainment

  • Information Transfer from and among Clock Cells

  • Mathematical Models of Circadian Oscillators

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) 

Journal of Biological Rhythms (JBR) publishes original reports in English describing original research into all aspects of biological rhythms. Emphasis is placed on circadian and seasonal rhythms, but papers on other rhythms are also published. In addition to original research papers, the Journal publishes reviews, commentaries, editorials, letters, and other items of interest related to biological rhythms. Authors use genetic, biochemical, physiological behavioral, and modeling approaches to understand the nature, mechanisms, and functions of biological rhythms in plants and animals. They also study human rhythms in experimental,  clinical, and real world settings. Preliminary or incomplete studies will not be considered. Research reported in the journal must meet the highest standards of experimental design and data analysis. Opinion papers and reviews of significant timely issues will also be considered.
