Aims & Scope

Aims & Scope

Life Research will publish research, reviews and comments from the life sciences on all aspects of human evolution, medicine, senescence and mentality that contribute to human life and health. With a comprehensive scope, Life Research is dedicated to discover the arcanum of life by combining culture and science in novel or cross disciplines. The journal emphasizes the unique thinking of researchers from different cultural backgrounds will produce unique scientific research results to reveal undiscovered areas of life science. All articles are rigorously reviewed.


The journal favors publication of full-length papers or short reports in a particular cultural context where modern scientific technologies are used to breaks through the limitations of stereotypes. Articles that merely report pure laboratory results based on predecessors are rarely accepted. Recommendations from the Declaration of Helsinki or NIH guidelines for care and use of laboratory animals must be adhered to. The journal welcomes reviews on topics of wide interest to investigators in the culture and life sciences. Articles should be written for readers easy to understand, not just for expert review. We particularly encourage submission of brief, focused reviews containing high-quality cultural scientific literacy and require the use of mind map or other summary diagrams.


Manuscripts should present novel preclinical findings or contribute to solve the problem of human health. Studies that fail to do so may be rejected without review. Quantitative conclusions must be based on appropriate research methods. Life Research does not publish simple work on cultural theory without any natural science research results. The study must be reproducible: research methods and material information must be available to other researchers so they can repeat the experiment. Cutting-edge research based less on current experimental evidence may be considered if they could use existing scientific evidence to make reasonable inferences, but the journal does not publish unrealistic research results without scientific evidence.


Topics covered in Life Research include:
1. The effect of religion, society, behavioral therapy, martial arts, mental intervention, meditation and the arts on human life and health.
2. The life science in traditional medicine theory of different cultural backgrounds.
3. Tumor biology, stem cells, aging and anti-aging research, neurophysiology and brain science, and the interaction between microbes and human body.
4. The influence of society and civilization on the quality of life.
5. The origin of human life, human evolution, ethnic difference and developmental biology.
6. Environmental medicine and human life rhythm research.
7. Big data and bioinformatics, artificial intelligence and human-machine integration.
8. Bioethics issues, such as the influence of organ transplantation, test-tube baby, homosexuality and antenatal training on human life.
9. Tissue engineering and genetic engineering.
