Posted on January 01, 2010 by Staff Writer

Raina Robeva, professor of mathematical sciences at Sweet Briar College, has been appointed to serve as editor-in-chief of the new journal Frontiers in Systems Biology, a tier 1 journal in the Frontiers journal series.

The journal is devoted to the system-level understanding of the biology, behavior and the interplay between biology and behavior at all levels of biological organization, such as molecules, cells, tissues, organs, organisms, populations and communities.

The journal’s goal is to emphasize how conceptual, psychological or computational models help illuminate the structure and the functioning of complex systems, provide insights into questions of critical importance for the biological and life sciences, and facilitate the treatment of associated medical and behavioral conditions.

Robeva selected a diverse group of researchers from the fields of mathematics and the life sciences to serve on the editorial board of Frontiers in Systems Biology. Each is recognized for his or her work both nationally and internationally.

Frontiers in Systems Biology welcomes submissions of the following types of articles: original research articles, clinical case studies, review articles, hypothesis and theory articles, methods articles, commentaries, perspective articles, opinion articles, book reviews and conference proceedings.

The Frontiers journal series are open access journals supported by the Frontiers Research Foundation, an international not-for-profit foundation based in Switzerland.

The mission of the Frontiers Research Foundation is to uphold the rights of authors, address their needs, and foster a rapid, convenient, unbiased and comprehensive publishing environment, which not only guarantees the highest quality, constructive peer-review process, but also provides an evaluation system that involves the entire research community.

All articles published in Frontiers are subject to an exclusive license agreement between the authors and the Frontiers Research Foundation, which permits unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original authors and the source are credited.
