BioEssays is a fully peer-reviewed, review-and-discussion journal publishing novel insights, forward-looking reviews and commentaries in contemporary biology with a molecular, genetic, cellular, or physiological dimension. A further aim is to emphasise transdisciplinarity and integrative biology in the context of organismal studies, systems approaches, through to ecosystems where appropriate. The journal has three main sections: Thoughts & Opinion (for commentaries, meeting reports, book reviews and letters to the Editor), Insights & Perspectives (for ideas and hypotheses) and Prospects & Overviews (for review-style articles). The Prospects & Overviews section contains mini-reviews highlighting very recent research articles, and longer papers that present a field, its developments and prospects for a broad readership; we also welcome methods papers (including presentation of new model systems) under the rubric Methods, Models & Techniques. The journal's insightful analysis makes it essential reading for professional researchers (from basic research through to medically-related fields), as well as an invaluable resource for lecturers and students.
