SCOPE OF THE JOURNAL
Journal of Applied Bioscience (Formerly Biological Memoirs) is a biannual multidisciplinary journal of International Society of Applied Biology catering to various classical and applied aspects of Biological, Medical & Veterinary, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The journal publishes articles containing original researches, critical synthesis, revisions and reviews. The wide field purports to enable the specialist researchers to have a closer perspective of disciplines related or even unrelated to his field of interest. The disciplines covered so far include Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Biotechnology, Medicine, Veterinary, Tropical and Medical Mycology, Agriculture, Environmental Biology, Palaeobotany, Paleontology and Morphotaxonomy of plants and animals.
The journal is abstracted/indexed in Biological Abstracts, Current Contents, CABI-Abstracts, Chemical Abstracts, Current Awareness in Biological Sciences (CABS), Global Health, Indian Science Abstracts, Medicinal and Aromatic Plants Abstracts, Paryavaran Abstracts, etc.
