Aims & Scope

Letters in Biomathematics is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes mathematics and statistics research related to biological, ecological and environmental settings in a very broad sense, as well as other related topic fields. The journal lies at the intersection of mathematics, statistics, biology, ecology, and the life sciences and welcomes Research, Education, and Review articles.

Topics covered by the journal include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Mathematics and Statistics of biology, life sciences, and other related disciplines
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biostatistics
  • Computational Biology
  • Clinical statistics 
  • Dynamical Systems
  • Educational research in biological mathematics and statistics, and related disciplines
  • Environmental Sciences
  • Epidemiology
  • Evolutionary Biology/Ecology
  • Mathematical Biophysics 
  • Population Modelling
  • Computing intensive modelling, including evolutionary computing algorithms
  • Simulation and Modelling
  • Systems Biology

One volume is published per year.

Peer Review

All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editors, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is double blind.

Special Issue Policy

Letters in Biomathematics welcomes and encourages special issues for articles on research and education in mathematical biology as well as proceedings of meetings and conferences on related topics. Contact the Editors-in-Chief to propose special issues.
