Biochemical Society Transactions is an academic journal which publishes the transactions of the annual conference and focused meetings of the Biochemical Society, together with independent meetings supported by the Society. The Society's annual symposium, previously published only in Biochemical Society Symposia, was first published in Transactions in 2008. Established in 1973, the journal is currently published six times a year by Portland Press, the Society's publishing arm, from London, UK.

The journal was largely issued quarterly until 1999. Since 2004, issues have been made up entirely of full papers, having previously alternated between an issue of abstracts and an issue of full papers. Transactions take the form of short papers, usually of 3–4 pages; the journal also publishes longer papers from the Society's award lectures. Papers are not formally peer reviewed.

Its 2013 impact factor is 3.238.[1] Since 2005, the journal's Honorary Editor has been David J. Richardson (University of East Anglia).

Content from 2000 is available online in PDF and HTML formats, with all papers from August 2006 also being available as enhanced text. Papers are currently available free at the start of the calendar year following print publication.
