Journal of Biosemiotic Research

Aims and Scope


The Journal of Biosemiotic Research (JBSR) is an international, open access journal publishing research to boost the understanding and development of biosemiotic knowledge and research. The journal is dedicated to advancing the knowledge base in a wide range of areas including philosophy, semiotics, theoretical biology, ecology, linguistics, psychology, and anthropology.

The scope of the journal is to publish original scientific works including analytical, theoretical, and applied research studies that explore the relationships between organisms, their environment and semiotic systems. The topics covered by the journal include, but are not limited to, living systems, life processes, genetics, biosemiotic functions, and meanings in natural and cultural environments, evolutionary approaches, and the transdisciplinary features of biosemiotic research.

The journal encourages interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaborations between researchers across various domains. We aim at encouraging the exchange of diverse research insights and the development of new biosemiotic research areas. 

Articles published in this journal offer a platform to debate and discuss influential findings and insights of scientific works. Furthermore, the publications focus on making the content of the journal more accessible to researchers, practitioners, and academics by providing information in a manner that is easy to comprehend and share.

The journal also publishes editorials, and commentaries to stimulate thought-provoking conversations on current issues and theories related to biosemiotic research. The editorial board is composed of distinguished professionals who are renowned for their experience in the field of research and academia.
