is the flagship publication of the American Institute of Biological Sciences
(AIBS). It is a peer-reviewed, heavily cited, monthly science journal
with content written and edited for accessibility to researchers, educators, and students alike. Since 1964, BioScience has published timely and authoritative overviews of current research in biology, accompanied by essays and discussion sections on education, public policy, history, and the conceptual underpinnings of the biological sciences. Coverage focuses on organisms from molecules to the environment.
Each issue also includes professionally written feature articles about the latest frontiers in biology, book reviews, news about AIBS, and a policy column (Washington Watch). Other articles offer the perspectives of opinion leaders and invite further commentary. Occasional special sections provide an in-depth look at important topics.
