About the Journal

Bioscience Horizons is an exciting online journal, produced by a consortium of UK universities with support from Oxford University Press, which publishes the best of student research from around the world.

The objectives of the journal are:

  • To promote the link between teaching and research in Higher Education.
  • To provide a repository of high quality research by undergraduates and taught masters students that will be useful to other students and staff.
  • To provide a forum for students, their supervisors and universities, to showcase high quality research work.
  • To illustrate the student skill base to prospective employers.


The journal publishes papers on all aspects of bioscience, including anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, medical science, plant science, agriculture, environmental biology, soil biology, forensic biology, animal physiology, behaviour, ecology, pharmacology, biotechnology, genetics, sports science, zoology, biology, neuroscience, conservation biology, and marine biology.

The journal publishes both original research articles and review articles. Papers on original research can arise from a range of research projects, including (but not limited to): final year research projects, other research projects, industrial year (placement) projects, summer vacation projects and internships. Review articles may be long or short, but must reach a creative conclusion or opinion including suggestions for future research.
