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:

  • December 2018: Ecology and Evolution (submission deadline: June 1st, 2018)
  • March 2019: Attention Science (submission deadline: September 1st, 2018)
  • June 2019: Cycles and Clocks (submission deadline: December 1st, 2018)

Medical Technology is not only concerned with finding the cure to disease but also being able to detect it, especially in its early stages. Authors Antoine Leuzy, Kerstin Heurling, Nicholas Ashton, Michael Schöll, and Eduardo Zimmer contributed this original artwork illustrating "all biomarkers available for detecting Alzheimer's Disease pathology (imaging and fluid)". The positron emission tomography is represented as a brush that uses biomarkers, represented as inks, to paint or image the brain. Deputy Editors: Gabriela Bosque Ortiz, Walter Hsiang.
