About FRBM

Free Radical Biology and Medicine (FRBM) is a modern hybrid journal that offers authors both traditional free publication and open access publication.  FRBM provides a forum for original research papers, invited full length review articles, methods papers, and editorial content focused on state of the art novel research in free radical and redox biology and medicine.

The journal, which is published one per month (each a double issue), is one of the highest impact factor journals in the field (5.606) and is listed by all the major indexing services, including: Current Contents, Index Medicus, Science Citation, Chemical Abstracts, Current Awareness in Biological Sciences and Toxicology Abstracts.  The journal encompasses chemical, biochemical, genetic, molecular biology, cell biology, cell signalling, physiological, pharmacological, pathological, toxicological and medical approaches to oxygen and free radical research. 

All SfRBM members receive a subscription to FRBM. New members receive the entire volume year of FRBM no matter what point in a given year they join the Society - a savings of $350 over a regular non-member subscription. In addition, regular and postdoc members of the society receive access to FRBM online: abstracts and full text of all published articles are available to read even before you receive the print issue via mail!

How to Write a Great Research Paper and Get it Accepted by a Good Journal

Receiving Office for all FRBM Manuscripts

Authors are requested to send their manuscripts for consideration for publication in Free Radical Biology & Medicine (FRBM) online at  For further information, please feel free to contact:

Editorial Office
Free Radical Biology & Medicine

Administering the peer review process of all submissions from one site will result in a faster turn around time from submission to first decision, whilst affording the Editors more time to concentrate on further developing and expanding the scope of FRBM to ensure that it maintains its position as the Top journal in its field. Please do NOT send manuscripts directly to one of FRBM's editors.

The Central office is run by a team of experienced scientists and administrative staff and has, for more than a decade, been the pivotal point in the peer review administration of manuscripts published in other major scientific journals. The Journal Editors and Associate Editors will continue to select the most appropriate reviewers for each paper and will ultimately decide on the acceptability of your manuscript. This move to a central receiving office for FRBM is an endorsement of our commitment to continue to serve you (our authors and readers) and keep you abreast of what's new in your particular area of research, in a timely fashion.

We look forward to receiving your Original Research Papers, Review Articles, Hypothesis Papers, and Letters to the Editors.
