Biosemiotics: La Revista


Biosemiotics

Editor-in-Chief: Marcello Barbieri

ISSN: 1875-1342 (print version)

ISSN: 1875-1350 (electronic version)

Journal no. 12304

The journal Biosemiotics provides a platform for exceptional peer-reviewed papers that is as broad as the rapidly growing discipline for which it is named. Its coverage spans a range of disciplines, bridging biology, philosophy, linguistics and the communication sciences.

Conceived in the insight that the genetic code is a language as old as life itself, and grounded in the study of signs, of communication and of information in organisms, biosemiotics is evolving today toward the challenge of naturalizing not only biological information but also biological meaning, in the belief that signs and codes are fundamental components of the living world.

Biosemiotics offers an advanced forum for the exchange of ideas on this exciting new area of biological theory. It serves a readership comprising biosemioticians themselves, along with interested researchers in disciplines from social semiotics to community ecology, from communication science to artificial intelligence.

    Biosemiotics is dedicated to building a bridge between biology, philosophy, linguistics and the communication sciences. If it is true that biosemiotics is "the study of signs, of communication and of information in living organisms" (Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1997, p.72), it is also true that, in time, it has acquired a more general scope. Today, its main challenge is the attempt to naturalize not only biological information but also biological meaning, in the belief that signs and codes are fundamental components of the living world. This implies that the history of life has largely been shaped by the appearance of new codes, from the genetic code that marked its origin to the codes of language that made us human. Biosemiotics has become in this way the leading edge of the research on the fundamentals of life, and is a young exciting field on the move.

    By providing both a place for ? and access to ? exceptional peer-reviewed papers on the emerging discipline of biosemiotics, the journal will offer an instrument of its development by publishing papers in all relevant areas of the sciences and the humanities.
