The Annual Review of Biophysics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Annual Reviews covering research in the field of biophysics. It appears annually in June. Topics covered have included macromolecular structure and dynamics, membranes and membrane proteins, macromolecular machines and motors, single-molecule studies, ribosome structure and dynamics, chromatin dynamics, cytoskeletal proteins, protein trafficking, networks and synthetic biology, protein and RNA folding, ion channels, bacterial microcompartments, protein quantitation by mass spectrometry, microfluidics-based crystallization, nanopore analysis of nucleic acids, biophysics of knotting, and roles for diverse physical phenomena during the origin of life.

As of 2013, the editor-in-chief is Douglas C. Rees (California Institute of Technology).[1]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2012 impact factor of 12.630, ranking it first out of 74 journals in the category "Biophysics".[2]


The journal was established in 1972 as Annual Review of Biophysics and Bioengineering (1972–1984), and subsequently changed its title to Annual Review of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry (1985–1991) and Annual Review of Biophysics and Biomolecular Structure (1992–2007), acquiring its current title in 2008. The founding editor was Manuel Morales.[3]
