    Hello Bio people,

    Could I ask a quick question...

    Physics has the Phys. Rev. series, is there an equivalent in Biology?

    Yes it is :smile:

    ...but Nature and Science are a bit special - not your everyday journals like PRX.

    shoot whats the online site medlibrary?
    can't remember. But like arxiv there is one online.
    As for actual journals, i don't think there is just one i think there are tons. Granted most that i had to look in were neuroscience(and psychology) ones.
    The two i remmeber the most were Journal of Neurosci. And Cerebellem or Cerebral

    It really depends on what discipline of biology you are interested in. Nature and Science are great, and cover some very interesting research, but they are quite multi-disciplinary.
    For example, for all things pharmacology the British Journal of Pharmacology (pubslihed by Nature group) is very good. For all things regarding the extracellular matrix Matrix Biology is very good. And so on.
