Open Access Biophysics Journals

A list of Open Access Biophysics journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Biophysics is study of biological systems using methods from the physical sciences

All articles published in Open Access journals have undergone peer review and upon acceptance are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.

We hope this list of Biophysics OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Biophysics manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Biophysics journals that may be relevant to your field of study. In any case, we've also included other journals that may also offer more affordable publishing fees.Rather than just the top hits Biophysics journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Biophysics journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Biophysics venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Biophysics journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and practices through which research is freely distributed online
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from this journal have been referenced in other works. OpenAlex is where we get this data from. Although the accuracy is debatable, it can nevertheless help you get a sense of how prestigious a journal is in general.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on
How can I publish my paper on
At the moment, we do not offer publishing services, that's why we made these lists, so you can find the right journal to publish your paper in. Our goal with is to help disseminate research.
What is an APC?
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is the fee that publishers of some open access journals charge in order to publish articles.
What are the different Open Access types?
Different open access types are commonly described using a colour system. The most commonly recognised names are “green”, “gold”, and “hybrid” open access; however, “bronze”, “black”, and “diamond” also exist.
