A NEW JOURNAL AT THE INTERFACE OF THE PHYSICAL AND LIFE SCIENCES
(www.pubs.royalsoc.ac.uk/interface_homepage.shtml)

The Royal Society announces the launch of a new international journal,
Interface, which publishes contributions from the interface between the
physical sciences, including mathematics, and the life sciences. It
provides a dedicated forum for rapid publication and interaction across this
boundary: both sides of the interface are considered equally.

Interface publishes research applying chemistry, engineering, materials
science, mathematics and physics to the biological and medical sciences; it
also highlights discoveries in the life sciences that allow advances in the
physical sciences. Preliminary and more speculative work of high-quality is
encouraged. The journal also publishes authoritative reviews.

Interface welcomes articles on a diverse range of topics including, but not
limited to:
* biocomplexity
* bioengineering
* bioinformatics
* biomaterials
* biomechanics
* biophysics
* chemical biology
* medical physics
* nanoscience and computer science (as applied to the life sciences)
* systems biology
* theoretical biology
* tissue engineering

Features of Interface include:
* rapid publication times
* original scientific research (up to 8000 words)
* short reports (up to 2500 words)
* high-quality reviews
* fully peer-reviewed to Royal Society standards
* broad dissemination and accessibility
* available online and in print
* commitment to providing perpetual access

NOTES FOR INTERFACE AUTHORS

Aim and scope

Interface is a new international journal publishing papers from the
interface between the physical sciences, including mathematics, and the life
sciences. It provides a high-quality forum to publish rapidly and interact
across this boundary in two main ways: Interface publishes research applying
chemistry, engineering, materials science, mathematics and physics to the
biological and medical sciences; it also highlights discoveries in the life
sciences that allow advances in the physical sciences. Both sides of the
interface are considered equally.
Articles
Articles are contributions (up to 8000 words) containing original scientific
research.

Reports
Reports are short, letter-style contributions (up to 2500 words), which are
published rapidly. Preliminary and more speculative work of high-quality is
strongly encouraged.
Both articles and reports should be written for audiences in a wide range of
disciplines.


Reviews

Reviews are articles of the highest quality, and aim to be of interest to
communities working at the physical sciences–life sciences interface.
Articles cover the latest developments in an area of cross-disciplinary
research. They put such research into a wider context and are written in a
style that makes them accessible to readers in a wide range of disciplines.
Reviews are normally published by invitation; however, we are also keen to
receive proposals for prospective articles. Complete literature surveys are
not encouraged.
Selection criteria
The review process will give equal weighting to sciences on both sides of
the interface. The criteria for selection are scientific excellence,
originality and potential interest to a wide spectrum of scientists. All
papers are peer-reviewed to a high standard and published rapidly under the
control of the Editor and his distinguished Editorial Board.
Conditions of publication
Papers must not have been published previously, nor be under consideration
for publication elsewhere. The Editor has final authority in all matters
relating to publication.
Electronic submission details
The Royal Society's electronic submission and peer-review service provides
Interface authors with the facility to submit their papers electronically.
The service allows you to upload files in a reliable and user-friendly way,
using a Web-based system. When your paper is received, you receive an
immediate acknowledgement that details how you can track your contribution
online.
