molecular – cellular – biomedical – physiology – translational research – systems - hypotheses encouraged
BioEssays is a fully peer-reviewed, review-and-discussion journal publishing novel insights, forward-looking reviews and commentaries in contemporary biology with a molecular, genetic, cellular, or physiological dimension. A further aim is to emphasise transdisciplinarity and integrative biology in the context of organismal studies, systems approaches, through to ecosystems where appropriate. The journal has three main sections: Thoughts & Opinion (for commentaries, meeting reports, book reviews and letters to the Editor), Insights & Perspectives (for ideas and hypotheses) and Prospects & Overviews (for review-style articles). The Prospects & Overviews section contains mini-reviews highlighting very recent research articles, and longer papers that present a field, its developments and prospects for a broad readership; we also welcome methods papers (including presentation of new model systems) under the rubric Methods, Models & Techniques. The journal's insightful analysis makes it essential reading for professional researchers (from basic research through to medically-related fields), as well as an invaluable resource for lecturers and students.

JIT focuses on new research addressing technology and the management of IT, including strategy, change, infrastructure, human resources, sourcing, system development and implementation, communications, technology developments, technology futures, national policies and standards. It also publishes articles that advance our understanding and application of research approaches and methods.
The journal will publish work from all disciplinary, theoretical and methodological perspectives. It encourages all of the following kinds of contribution:
- Original research articles - including theoretical/conceptual, empirical and critical studies
- Review articles
- Teaching cases
- Invited articles
The Editors welcome suggestions for Special Issues on a topical theme, and from time to time they appoint Guest Editors to manage a Special Issue.
