Journal mission

JIBS is aimed at publishing scientific research work relevant for the advancement of mathematical modeling and computer simulations of biological systems including intra-cellular dynamics, cellular dynamics, population dynamics or evolutionary dynamics. The overall objectives of JIBS is to advance our understanding of mechanisms facilitating control and organization in living systems. 

Why in silico biology?

The term "in silico" implies the use of computer-based model construction, model analyses and prediction generation for studying a system. In silico biology represents the simulation of biological systems to gain insight into the system components and processes.

Use of mathematical modeling and computer simulation allows exploration of multiscale biological systems which are difficult to perform in pure experimental framework. Additionally, computer-based simulation facilitates finer control over system parameters. Carefully developed and calibrated in silico models can be used to make prediction about the system under investigation thereby motivating further experimental work in the concerned area of research. 

What we do?

We publish peer-reviewed research articles focusing on biological research in which computer-based modeling is used to gain insight into the system. 

We also publish articles where novel experimental or simulation/mathematical tools or constructs are developed which can potentially be used for exploring mechanisms and components of biological systems. 

A review articles focusing on aspects of in silico biology may also be accepted for publication if the article provides a detailed treatment of current state of the art and future direction in the area of in silico biology. 

Salient features
KPG strongly believes that reviewers' contribution is very important in helping authors in identifying potential areas of manuscript improvement. Therefore, after blind review, all accepted papers list the name of reviewers and provide access to review reports. This makes the complete review process more transparent and helps us in giving the due credits to the reviewers.

All published papers will be available to readers without subscription.
