Our Journal

Volume 112, Issue 1, January 2020

The aim of Peptide Science is to publish significant original research papers and up-to-date reviews covering the entire field of peptide research. Peptide Science provides a forum for papers covering all aspects of peptide synthesis, materials, structure and bioactivity, including the use of peptides in exploring protein functions and protein-protein interactions.
