Biophysics Reviews

A journal for research that intersects the biological and physical sciences.

BPR is a new journal featuring comprehensive and authoritative reviews and original research covering all areas of biophysics. BPR publishes studies of high quality and general interest to the biophysics community. The journal’s focus includes experimental and theoretical research in fundamental issues in biophysics alongside its applications in other branches of science, medicine, and engineering.

BPR welcomes submissions of comprehensive and authoritative research and reviews covering all areas of biophysics, including:

  • Biomechanics
  • Biomaterials
  • Biosensors and Bioelectronics
  • Bio- and Tissue Engineering and Bioprinting
  • Soft Robotics
  • Biomedical Instrumentation and Bioimaging
  • Computational Biology and Genomics
  • Drug Delivery

First papers are expected to publish in Fall 2020

Our Approach to Publishing

To put it simply, we believe that publishing should be rewarding. BPR is committed to:

Superior editorial and customer service. We’re here for you throughout the submission, review and publication process, and we’ll treat your manuscript like it’s our own. Publishing should be easy, not stressful. See more. →

Making your paper the best it can be. We’ll provide expert editorial guidance and fair and constructive peer review along with the highest quality production values to help your paper make the best possible impact.

Making sure your work gets the visibility it deserves. You worked hard on your research, and we’ll work hard to make sure it’s discovered, read and cited. BPR has an expansive global readership, and post-production marketing efforts highlight new discoveries to the research community.

Serving the physical science community. As part of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), AIP Publishing supports AIP’s programs to advance physics through collaboration and outreach, scientific communication, public policy, and educational programs.

About Our Team


Meet the Editorial Team
Kit Parker, Editor-in-Chief

Kit Parker is the Tarr Family Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University. Here, Kit serves as the director of the SEAS Disease Biophysics Group, a transdisciplinary research group of artists, engineers, and scientists that focuses on cardiac cell biology and tissue engineering, traumatic brain injury, and biological applications of micro- and nanotechnologies. His lab is involved in projects ranging from cellular biophysics to developing nanofabrics for applications in tissue regeneration. His team has a specific interest in creating organs-on-chips to address pediatric diseases such as asthma, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, brain injury, and congenital heart disease.

While at Vanderbilt University for his graduate studies, Kit enlisted in the ROTC and joined the Tennessee Army National Guard. Kit graduated from Vanderbilt University with his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1993 and Ph.D. in Biological and Applied Physics in 1998. Kit was deployed to Afghanistan in 2002 and 2008 on two tours of combat duty, and was awarded numerous awards, including a Bronze Star.

In 2011, Kit returned to Afghanistan twice as a member of a science advisory team assembled by the Joint Chiefs, to assess and report on issues pertaining to combat casualties and their care. He currently holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Reserve and serves as a Professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Kit earned a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University in 1989. His diverse entrepreneurial and teaching interests also include fashion design, food, cooking technology, leadership, adaptive learning in organizations, and the application of counterinsurgency theory in fighting transnational organized crime.

Luigi Longobardi, Executive Editor

Luigi is a physicist by training, an editor at heart, and can bake an amazing loaf of sourdough bread. Before joining AIP Publishing, Luigi spent six years at the American Physical Society where he was the Assistant Editorial Director and where he worked on Physical Review B and Physical Review X and launched Physical Review Fluids and Physical Review Materials. Luigi received a Ph.D. in physics from Stony Brook University and was subsequently a Marie Curie Researcher in Napoli and then a Research Associate at Dartmouth College.

Amanda Sulicz
Associate Editor

Meticulous care and patience are key attributes of a good associate editor, and Amanda Sulicz is an example of both. In addition to overseeing the management of BPR, she is responsible for the diligent care of two very active Guinea Pigs, creatively named after U.S. Presidents with fashionable facial hair. She also enjoys swimming and playing water polo.

Amanda joins AIP Publishing from the University of Texas in San Antonio where she was a Postdoctoral Researcher for the past two years. Prior to that she was a Research Assistant at Case Western Reserve University where she received her PhD in Chemistry in 2017.
