Current, Future, & Past Issues

How We Plan Topics

Our focus on special topics for each issue attracts high quality reviews and research articles and provides a broader readership than smaller specialty journals. Since implementing this format in 2015, our readership, impact and quality have increased substantially and continue to grow. In particular, each focus topic is suggested by and voted upon by the YJBM Editorial Board. As such, the topics chosen are those that we, as graduate, medical, and professional students, find to be the most exciting and impactful.

We decide on focus topics thirteen months before the publication of the issue and accept manuscripts on the focus topic up to three months before the publication of the issue (depending on the type of submission).


Upcoming Focus Topics:

  • December 2018--Ecology and Evolution
  • March 2019--Attention Science
  • June 2019--Cycles and Clocks
