As of the moment, we only accept articles in English.

Your topics should be relevant and related to anything under Interactive Biology’s scope. That is, related to the Biological sciences, Anatomy and Physiology, Neuroscience, Pathophysiology, Ecology and more.

A Note About the Evolution/Creation debate (Important)

Here at Interactive Biology, we recognize that the evolution/creation debate is a heated issue with diehard proponents on both sides of the spectrum. However, we do NOT wish to enter into that debate. For this reason, no articles will be accepted with any reference to either Evolution or Creation.
