Clinical Science scope

Linking basic science to disease mechanisms

Translating molecular bioscience and experimental research into medical insights, Clinical Science offers comprehensive studies using a multi-disciplinary approach including models of human disease and clinical perspectives to advance human health.

Clinical Science, published by Portland Press on behalf of the Biochemical Society, is a single-anonymous peer-reviewed hybrid journal offering the option to publish open access (OA). The Biochemical Society was founded in 1911 and, given its breadth of coverage within the life sciences, continues to attract a strong membership community; Portland Press is the publishing arm of the Biochemical Society, with all profits being returned to the Society for them to carry out their charitable endeavours. 

The journal’s international Editorial Board, led by Editor-in-Chief Michael J. Ryan (University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Columbia, USA), is charged with selecting peer-reviewed original papers of the highest scientific merit covering the broad spectrum of biomedical specialities including, although not exclusively:
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Cerebrovascular system
  • Gastrointestinal tract and liver
  • Genomic medicine
  • Infection and immunity
  • Inflammation
  • Cancer biology
  • Nutrition, endocrinology and metabolism
  • Nephrology
  • Circulation
  • Respiratory system
  • Vascular biology
  • Molecular pathology
  • Development biology
  • Reproductive biology and pregnancy

In addition to research papers, the journal features state-of-the-art review articles written by experts in the field, invited commentaries and scientific correspondence on recently published papers appearing in the journal.

 Please note that Clinical Science will not consider the following paper types:

  • Case reports/studies
  • Epidemiological and population health studies
  • Clinical trials/observational studies
  • Systematic reviews/meta-analysis
  • Biomarker studies without a mechanistic focus

Publishing with us is completely free under a standard license, and Clinical Science does not charge page fees, publication charges or colour fees. If you choose to make your article available under an open access license, there is an article publishing charge, and more information can be found on the journal’s website. Authors at participating institutions can publish open access with no author-facing open access fees, through our transformative Read & Publish offerings. Find out more and see the full list of participating institutions.
