ISCB's Official Journals

PLOS Computational Biology (EISSN 1553-7358, ISSN 1553-734X) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal published monthly by the Public Library of Science (PLoS) as an official journal of the International Society for Computational Biology. The journal is has an international Editorial Board, headed by the Editor-in-Chief, Ruth Nussinov, a Professor at Tel Aviv University and Princial Investigator of the National Cancer Institute

 

In January 2009 Bioinformatics (EISSN: 14602059, ISSN: 13674803) once again became an official journal of the ISCB. This was a "homecoming" of sorts, as Bioinformatics was the original Society journal from 1998-2004, and the ISMB Proceedings have been published in the journal continuously since 2001.

The ISCB Community Journal by F1000Research publishes a range of research formats in one centralized channel. Articles based upon the research presented at select official and affiliated conferences will be published using F1000Research’s immediate publication and transparent peer review model. This model allows publication without limitations on article size and type, or initial judgments on potential impact. ISCB members enjoy up to a $200 discount on publishing.

Society Pages

The Society Pages provide a valuable means for members of the computational biology and bioinformatics community to learn how to get involved in numerous ongoing activities that cover the full spectrum of research, education and professional service.

ISCB Society Pages are part of PLOS Computational Biology and in OUP Bioinformatics. Articles in the column describe the specific programs of ISCB, highlight significant accomplishments of the communities and individuals, and provide opportunities for those who oversee the society’s activities to communicate their vision and plans.
