Yale Journal of Biology & Medicine

The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine is a PubMed-indexed, open access, quarterly journal edited by Yale medical, graduate, and professional students and peer reviewed by an extensive network of experts in the fields of biology and medicine. The journal aims to showcase outstanding research articles from all areas of biology and medicine, to publish significant case reviews, and to provide both perspectives on personal experiences in medicine and reviews of the current state of biology and medicine.

To all interested authors: Starting in June 2015, YJBM began devoting entire issues to its focus topics. This means that all manuscripts in an issue will be related to the focus topic. As a result, we will not be considering off-topic manuscripts. Please keep an eye out for our future focus topics, and thank you for your understanding.

Upcoming focus topics:

  • June 2019: Cycles and Clocks (submission deadline: December 1st, 2018)
  • September 2019: Organelles (submission deadline: March 1st, 2019)
  • December 2019: Death (submission deadline: June 1st, 2019)

About the Cover Image for Volume 92, Issue 1

As our world becomes more complex and demanding, we become inundated with more and more information. What we choose to focus on, and how we adapt to and process this active new environment becomes increasingly important as we step further into the future. Attention science is a topic studied in a broad range of disciplines that examines everything from neuronal architecture to social behavior. The cover was designed with the intent of highlighting the intersection of social, neural, and attentional networks that build our current world and the methods required to decipher such a complex web of information.
