About Biology of Sex Differences

Biology of Sex Differences is the official open access journal of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences and a publication of the Society for Women’s Health Research.

Sex has profound effects on physiology and the susceptibility to disease.

The study of sex differences is a discipline in itself, with its own concepts and methods that apply across tissues.

Topical areas include, but are not limited to sex differences in:

the genome
molecular and cell biology
tissue biology
interaction of tissue systems, in any system including adipose, behavioral, cardiovascular, immune, muscular, neural, renal, and skeletal
and clinical studies bearing on sex differences in disease or response to therapy
