About Elsevier's Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) journal portfolio
BBA began publication in 1947. It was the first international journal dedicated to the publication of new findings from the emerging and synergistic fields of biochemistry and biophysics. Since that time, BBA has expanded to meet the needs of scientists focused on understanding the physics, molecular mechanisms, and biomedical underpinnings in diverse fields, including bioenergetics, proteomics, and lipid biology. Today BBA comprises ten different journals, each with unique editors and scope and an average impact factor above 5. The members of the American Library Association recognized BBA's outstanding value in 2009 by electing BBA to the 100 Most Influential Journals in Biology & Medicine over the last 100 years.
