Redox Biology

Official Journal of the Society for Free Radical Research – Europe

Redox Biology is a forum for novel research, methods and review articles in redox biology in the areas of both health and disease, and its impact factor is 7.793. Acceptable paper types are research articles (short or full communications), methods, mini-reviews, and commentaries in the following areas:

  • Nutrition
  • Polyphenolics
  • Cancer
  • Metabolism
  • Cardiovascular
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation
  • Aging
  • Neuroscience
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Cell Signaling
  • Bioenergetics

Redox Biology will also consider research articles focused in chemical or biochemical mechanisms of redox biology, if these include data demonstrating effects in physiologically relevant models. Studies of uncharacterized complex mixtures of natural products are not a suitable area of focus for the journal. Studies using commercial, undefined kits as the sole or primary assay for redox related changes which are not validated using other methods will not be considered for publication.

Redox Biology introduces Graphical Redox Reviews. These reviews will summarize schematically key concepts, established and novel ideas in redox biology which will be accessible to a broad audience and freely downloaded as PowerPoint slides for use in teaching or conference presentations.

Graphical Redox Reviews ideally should have a format of 3-5 color schemes with a title, short introductory paragraph, extended figure legends, and include up to 20 selected citations.

For Comprehensive articles the gold open access publication fee for this journal is USD 2850, excluding taxes.

There are substantial discounts for members of the Society for Free Radical Research-Europe.

The open access publication fee for society members is USD 1400 excluding taxes for Concise articles, and USD 2360 excluding taxes for Comprehensive articles.

Free Radical Research aims to publish high-quality research papers, and reviews in all areas in the fields of:

Free radicals and other reactive species in biological, clinical, environmental and other systems

Redox signaling

Antioxidants, including diet-derived antioxidants and other relevant aspects of human nutrition

Oxidative damage, kinetics, mechanisms and measurement

Manuscripts should contribute a significant advance to the field, supported by clearly-presented data and statistical analysis.

Manuscripts should be as concise as possible subject to the need to present relevant background, data and methods.

Reviewers are strongly encouraged to identify areas of the manuscript that could be shortened.

Free Radical Research discourages papers that are purely descriptive (e.g. a catalogue of changes in antioxidant levels in a human disease or after administering, for example, a plant extract or a toxin to an animal). We also discourage screening papers, such as the use of total antioxidant activity assays to compare the antioxidant activities of plant extracts or herbal medicines including traditional medicines.

Antioxidants and Redox Signalling

Antioxidants & Redox Signaling is the leading journal dedicated to the understanding of reactive species as messenger molecules regulating signal transduction and gene expression.

New research reveals free radicals, which have been known as damaging agents, are being used for therapeutic purposes. 

This journal uncovers the expanding world of redox-based therapeutics—genetic, pharmacological, and nutritional.

Redox Report

Redox Report is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal focusing on the role of free radicals, oxidative stress, activated oxygen, perioxidative and redox processes, primarily in the human environment and human pathology.

However, relevant papers on the animal and plant environment, biology and pathology will also be included.

While emphasis is placed upon methodological and intellectual advances underpinned by new data, the journal offers scope for review, hypotheses, critiques and other forms of discussion.

The Society for Free Radical Research - Europe (SFRR-E) is dedicated to promoting interest in all aspects of of research related to Free Radicals in any scientific field.
