Focus and Scope
Sri Lankan Journal of Biology (SLJB) provides high quality, comprehensive and broad coverage in all areas of Biology. The journal publishes original scientific research articles that describe significant research findings. SLJB encourages the submission of original contributions in all fields of basic and applied research involved in Biological Sciences.
SLJB considers for publication original research that has not been previously published (this generally includes posting the article on a preprint server) or not under consideration for publication elsewhere. However, SLJB accepts submissions that have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other "non-journal" formats (for example: blogs or posters). In addition to full papers, short communications and invited reviews are accepted for publication.
