About the journal

International Journal of Biology and Chemistry was founded in 2012. Al-Farabi Kazakh National University is the founder, as well as the publisher of the journal. The journal has an approved cover and title pages with an indication of the university, output numbers of the issue, ISSN, e-ISSN, editorial board, editorial policy, publication ethics, and website. The journal is published 2 times a year.

The journal is included in the largest database on chemistry – Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) of the American Chemical Society; in the international authoritative source of bibliographic and descriptive information on periodicals of all types – UlrichsWeb Global Serials Directory; as well as into the EBSCO database, which is the leading provider of research databases, e-journals, e-books and discovery service to libraries of all kinds.

International Journal of Biology and Chemistry indexed by the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) of Web of Science Core Collection (Clarivate Analytics) since 2018.

All articles of the journal registered in the CrossRef database and for each author's article assigned a digital object identifier (DOI), which is used to provide a citation, reference, and output to electronic documents.

The journal is also placed in the Electronic Scientific Library elibrary.ru in open access format for readers and is included in the analytical database «Russian Science Citation Index».

The editorial board of the journal includes leading Kazakhstani and foreign scientists.

The journal follows the policy of information openness and accessibility of authors' publications, articles are posted on the journal's website in full-text access.

The principal aim of the journal is to present the results of the current scientific research and prospective developments in specific fields of biology and chemistry to facilitate international collaboration and further investigation of critical scientific problems, tasks, and discoveries.
