Welcome message from the new Editor-in-chief

Welcome and thank you for considering Porto Biomedical Journal (PBJ) to submit your work. Our mission is to bridge the divide in scientific research between basic and clinical research in the biomedical field. PBJ is interested in quality original biomedical research that can teach us something new about its respective field. We also publish reviews, cases, commentary, and other content of interest to a medical audience. At PBJ we aim to make quality science accessible to all, while removing financial barriers between authors and publication of their work. If you support these principles, this is the Journal for you!”


Still questioning whether PBJ is the best gateway to diffuse your work? Although recently created, PBJ aims to become a respected source of scientific knowledge worldwide. In order to achieve that goal, we present our authors with a multitude of advantages in publishing with us, to ensure only the best quality of scientific work reaches the public.

  Double-Blind Peer Review System
All works submitted to PBJ undergo a strict revision process in a double-blind refereeing system supervised by Elsevier, a procedure that safeguards the fairness of the article selection process.
  Free to Publish
As an author, you do the work, and we deliver it to the general public, with no additional costs to you. That is our goal and, with it in mind, publication in PBJ is free of charge.
In accordance with its policy to make science available to everyone and to eliminate financial barriers, all articles accepted to PBJ are accessible to anyone who wishes to read and learn from them.
