Members of the ACS Division of Biological Chemistry publish in both ACS journals, notably Biochemistry with which DBC remains closely associated since its founding in 1961, as well as other impactful journals the feature a broad readership.

ACS Journals

ACS is dedicated to supporting research in the fields of biological chemistry and features an extensive roster of journals offering innovative and landmark research findings at the interface of chemistry, biology and medicine. ACS journals offer extensive author benefits including rapid publication, broad dissemination, no publication charges and more.

ACS Chemical Biology

ACS Chemical Biology (ACS CB) fosters communication between biologists, chemists, and physicists, reaching out to an international scientific community exploring complex cellular processes using chemical, biological, and biophysical techniques. In addition to publishing Reviews and high impact original research in Letters and Articles, the journal features a number of sections (Spotlight, In Focus, and Point of View) designed to enhance readers’ understanding of chemical biology and broader scientific issues.

ACS Infectious Diseases

ACS Infectious Diseases is the first journal to highlight chemistry and its role in the multidisciplinary and collaborative field of infectious disease research. The scope of the journal encompasses all aspects of chemistry relating to infectious diseases research including research on pathogens, host-pathogen interactions, therapeutics, diagnostics, vaccines, drug-delivery systems, and other biomedical technology development pertaining to infectious diseases.

ACS Synthetic Biology

ACS Synthetic Biology (ACS SB) is dedicated to research in synthetic biology including the study of systems. The journal will publish high-quality research that demonstrate integrative, molecular approaches enabling us to better understand the organization and function of cells, tissues, and organisms in systems.

Biochemistry brings you the latest developments from the rapidly changing arena in which chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular and cell biology meet. Discover original research results that collectively shape our understanding of the mechanisms of biological phenomena. Biochemistry covers structure, function, and regulation of biologically active molecules; gene structure and expression; biochemical mechanisms; protein biosynthesis; protein folding; membrane structure-function relationships; bioenergetics; and immunochemistry.

Journal of Biological Chemistry

The Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) is the most-cited biomedical research journal in the world. Building on over 100 years of research, the JBC continues to provide essential research for an international audience and a standard of excellence in the field of biochemistry. In 2010, the journal revamped and extended its table of contents categories to reflect all areas of biology that can be studied on a molecular level from the entire range of modern biological research.
