Guide for Authors


Aims & Scope of The Proceedings of the BIRS Community

The BIRS Center is a globally focused research center that publishes a wide variety of student- and faculty-led findings to a broad audience. The center’s publication scope covers a multidisciplinary spectrum of biotechnology, global health, regulatory science, innovation, and education fields. The BIRS Center has allowed for successful and sustainable multidisciplinary collaborations to bring cutting edge research content into the classroom. Open access publishing is critical to meet the goals of the center’s mission. Not only does open access give a voice to those who may not otherwise have a platform, but by allowing the research our BIRS community performs to be readily available for fellow researchers, the knowledge will flourish.
