Aims & Scope
Recent Patents on Biotechnology aims to cover all the latest and outstanding developments in Biotechnology. Each issue of the journal includes full-length/mini-reviews covering a range of current topics in all areas of Biotechnology that reflect or deal with studies concerning a patent or applications of reported patents. Invited and unsolicited review articles are also welcome. Areas of interest cover the whole biotechnology cycle from applied research to product development, including intellectual property rights, regulatory affairs, and business in biotechnology. Contributions regarding aspects of sustainable biotechnology, bioeconomy, and circular biotechnology are particularly encouraged. Patent highlights, briefly (2-3 pages) describing an important recent patent and its impact/applications in biotechnology, are also published. A selection of important and recent patents on biotechnology is also included in the journal. Guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in the field of biotechnology are also welcome. Original research articles that describe the discovery, development, and study of biomolecules, cells, or materials are also published. Moreover, the journal also encourages papers reporting research work on the development of new or novel biomolecules that have considerable interest and potential as future biotech products. This journal is essential reading for all researchers involved in the fields of biotechnology in academia and industry.
