Introduction

The Asian Youth Journal of Biology (AYJB), an official journal of The Singapore Institute of Biology (SIBiol), is a free online journal published twice a year.  This e-journal was established in September 2011 and serves as a platform for the publication of peer-reviewed original articles in the area of biology by young scientists aged 14 to 25.  The main objective of AYJB is to increase scientific literacy amongst budding young scientists. 

In addition to original articles, the online journal publishes review articles and book reviews written by students as well as professional scientists.  Each issue will feature a section called “Classroom Sharing” where students and teachers can share their ideas on certain experimental/pedagogical techniques.  This section could also feature Research Centres at the schools.

Subject areas include:

  • Biochemistry
  • Biodiversity
  • Biology education
  • Biotechnology
  • Cell biology
  • Chemical biology
  • Ecology
  • Evolution
  • Genetics
  • Immunology
  • Microbiology
