Hypotheses in the Life Sciences is a refereed scientific journal for publishing new, challenging ideas in biology.
Hypotheses in the Life Sciences is a new journal that publishes new, well-argued but unproven ideas in biology.
I founded the journal out of the wreckage of Bioscience Hypotheses in 2010. It is published by Buckingham University Press, and supports my view that too much attention is given in science to what is accepted truth, and to the accumulation of large collections of data, and not enough to imaginative thought about what the data might mean.
Papers submitted to the journal are refereed by its editorial board, supplemented by external reviewers when our expertise runs thin. But this is no more a guarentee that the papers published are 'right' than it is for any other journal. We are just more honest about it than most, and so more open about saying that our authors bear responsibility for their opinions. What we do is provide a panel of informed scientists who are willing to say that an idea is not obviously wrong, and is interesting enough for others to consider.
