Aims and scope
Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB) is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. BIOB aims at providing an international academic platform for exchanging views on and promoting research to support bioresource development, processing and utilization in a sustainable manner. As an application-oriented research journal, BIOB covers not only the application and management of bioresource technology but also the design and development of bioprocesses that will lead to new and sustainable production processes.
BIOB publishes original and review articles on most topics relating to bioresource and bioprocess engineering, including:
- Biochemical and microbiological engineering
- Biocatalysis and biotransformation
- Biosynthesis and metabolic engineering
- Bioprocess and biosystems engineering
- Bioenergy and biorefinery
- Cell culture and biomedical engineering
- Food, agricultural and marine biotechnology
- Bioseparation and biopurification engineering
- Bioremediation and environmental biotechnology

Bioresources and Bioprocessing operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous Publication of research articles by Bioresources and Bioprocessing is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by our external expert editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field.
Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. Reviewers will also be asked to indicate how interesting and significant the research is. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
All manuscripts submitted to Bioresources and Bioprocessing should adhere to SpringerOpen's editorial policies.
