New JBC Classics and Reflections Collections

The Journal of Biological Chemistry has published a second collection of its popular Classics and Reflections articles. 

Volume 1The Journal of Biological Chemistry has been committed to publishing the best research since its inception in 1905. Since those early days scientists have been building on the research published in it. These new collections tell the story of biological chemistry from the perspective of key participants. The authors share their lives and research in their Reflections articles. Their findings and their impact through the generations are explored in our Classics articles.

The first Classics and Reflections collection was released in print in 2006. This year, a companion collection covering the years 2006 to 2010 and the original are online as free PDF downloads.

JBC Classics

The advances in electronic publishing, pioneered by JBC in 1995, allow us to present proudly some of the many seminal articles published since the Journal's founding. The papers, which are reprinted in their original forms, are accompanied by biographical introductios and brief summaries. The collection contains Classics by many of the legends in biological chemistry including Folin, Van Slyke, the Coris, Doisy, McCollum, Hastings, Lowry, Kornberg, Kennedy, Brown, Goldstein, and many more. Browse the Classics.

JBC Reflections

Volume 2The past century has seen countless scientific advances that have reshaped the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology. To recognize these achievements and the incredible scientists behind them, JBC offers Reflections, a series of articles authored by the biochemists and molecular biologists whose contributions have left lasting marks on the field. Although the Reflections were initiated in honor of the JBC Centenary in 2005, they have become a popular permanent fixture. All Reflections are invited articles by respected and recognized researchers on topisc of their choosing. It is our hope that the personal experiences encapsulated will, in small part, capture some of the history, unpredictability, and wonder of biochemistry. Browse the Reflections.
