Beta Beta Beta believes that research is not finished until its results are shared with others. To promote that goal and assist students in learning how to complete the publication process, the society offers its members the unique opportunity to publish their undergraduate work in the pages of its journal, BIOS.
Graduate or faculty co-authorship or sponsorship is not required; however, a second “by-line” is available for faculty or graduate supervisors. All manuscripts undergo the standard scientific procedure of review, editorial acceptance or rejection, and technical editing.
Published research has often won prior awards and the McClung Award recognizes the most outstanding paper published in BIOS each year. To provide a full range of biological topics to its readers, BIOS also carries overviews of graduate research, articles written by faculty and other invited authors, book reviews, and reports from local chapters as well as other society news. The journal is among the collections of libraries worldwide.
