The "Journal of Biological Chemistry" (often abbreviated JBC) is a scientific journal founded in 1905 and published since 1925 by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. It publishes research in any area of biochemistry or molecular biology, both in print and online, weekly. The Editor is Herbert Tabor. All its articles are available for free one year after publication. In press articles are available for free on its website immediately after acceptance. The impact factor of the journal in 2005 was 5.854. [Journal Citation Reports, 2006 ] In 2005 JBC was the scientific journal that received the largest total number of citations.

Founding

The journal was founded in 1905 by John Jacob Abel and Christian Archibald Herter, who also served as the first editors. They sent letters to 21 other American biochemists, inviting them to join the founding editorial board. This founding board (which eventually numbered 22 in addition to Abel and Herter), consisted of: R. H. Chittenden, Otto Folin, William J. Gies, Reid Hunt, Walter Jones, J. H. Kastle, Waldemar Koch, P. A. Levene, Jacques Loeb, Graham Lusk, A. B. Macallum, J. J. R. Macleod, A. P. Mathews, L. B. Mendel, F. G. Novy, W. R. Orndorff, T. B. Osborne, Franz Pfaff, A. E. Taylor, V. C. Vaughan, A. J. Wakeman, H. L. Wheeler.

The first issue appeared in October 1905.
