A Bimontly Publication of the International Union of Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology

The aim of Biochemical Education is to assist in the teaching of
biochemistry and molecular biology at the college, graduate school and
medical school level throughout the world. The Editors welcome articles on
teaching techniques and practice in all areas related to these fields, and
on methods of assessment of the effectiveness of new educational approaches.
Articles are also encouraged on research in biochemistry and molecular
biology education. Short reviews will be accepted or solicited from time to
time on key areas of biochemical knowledge from workers active in the field.
Such reviews are intended to provide background material for the preparation
of lectures. Articles providing details of simple, tried and tested,
laboratory experiments are especially encouraged. Those interested in
secondary school outreach may submit papers aimed at increasing awareness of
college and university faculty toward possibilities for contributing to the
ongoing education of secondary school teachers.

Each issue will contain reviews of books and other teaching aids such as
websites, videotapes, transparency/slide sets and computer software. Many of
the pages will contain full-color figures. There is also a companion website
that will contain two levels of access: Full-text access is available to all
materials for subscribers and access to the Table of Contents and Abstracts
is available for all visitors. In addition, a fully accessible section of
the website is being developed that will be updated frequently and will
contain reviewed multimedia materials such as computer graphics-based
tutorials on macromolecular structure and Java- and Shockwave-based
tutorials on most aspects of biochemistry and molecular biology. We hope
that this new site for instructional tools will become a general repository
for multimedia materials valuable to biochemical educators.

The main intended audience of Biochemical Education is instructors at
universities and colleges who teach biochemistry, molecular biology, and
related fields such as microbiology and cell biology.

Subscribers have access to full-text articles.
