The Journal was founded in 1975 by Prof. Yurii A. Ovchinnikov. The Editorial Board

uses the term "bioorganic chemistry" to cover a wide range of problems related to the

investigation of the structure and function of biomolecules using the methods of organic,

biochemical and physical chemistry.

The journal is intended for scientists, for those in the health professions, educators, and

students in universities and researchers in industrial, medical, agricultural,

and environmental control laboratories.

Russian Journal of Bioorganic Chemistry (Bioorganicheskaya Khimiya) welcomes

papers on all aspects of bioorganic chemistry, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genomics, proteomics,

bioinformatics, immunology, molecular virology, molecular evolution and developmental biology.

The Journal publishes reviews, minireviews, research articles and theoretical investigations, hypothesis and short communications.

The Journal is published in Russian (under the name Bioorganicheskaya Khimiya
in the Russian Federation) and in English (under the name Russian Journal
of Bioorganic Chemistry) six times a year by Russian Academy of Sciences
(IKC "Akademkniga") in Moscow (Russia) and Pleiades Publishing Inc.

in the United States. The English edition is distributed worldwide by Springer.
