The 1st most cited journal in Plant Sciences
Plant biophysics focuses on the basic physical principles guiding plant development, growth, and physiology, and how these processes lead to well adapted and optimized systems. Plant Biophysics and Modeling aims to publish the best research at the interface of physics, mathematics, and plant biology, and welcomes a wide range of research, both empirical and theoretical in nature, and at all scales of organization — from the molecular to the organismal level. We especially welcome contributions in the area of molecular and cell biophysics, physiology, biomimetics, synthetic biology, quantitative developmental studies, and biomechanics.
Comparative transcriptomic analyses that do not comply with journal replication requirements outlined in the author guidelines or that simply report a collection of differentially expressed genes will not be considered for publication.
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, AGRICOLA
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Plant Biophysics and Modeling welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Plant Biophysics and Modeling, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Plant Biophysics and Modeling will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Plant Science.
