Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal. It is an official publication of the Society of Biological Inorganic Chemistry and published by Springer Science+Business Media.
Areas of research covered in the journal include: advances in the understanding of systems involving one or more metal ions set in a biological matrix - particularly metalloproteins and metal-nucleic acid complexes - in order to understand biological function at the molecular level. Synthetic analogues mimicking function, structure and spectroscopy of naturally occurring biological molecules are also covered. Original articles, mini-reviews and commentaries on debated issues are being published.
Indexed by ISI Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry received an impact factor of 2.538 as reported in the 2014 Journal Citation Reports by Thomson Reuters, ranking it 157 out of 289 journals in the category Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and ranking it 9th out of 44 journals in the category Chemistry, Inorganic & Nuclear.
