The Biological Society of Ethiopia is a professional association of biologists. One of the objectives of the Society is to publish scientific journals and other documents as media for communication among its members and the other researchers in the diverse fields of biology. To this effect, the Ethiopian Journal of Biological Sciences (Ethiop. J. Biol. Sci.) was launched in September 2002 as an official journal of the Biological Society of Ethiopia (BSE). It is a biannual (March and September), peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of basic and applied biology. It publishes research (full length) articles, short communications, review articles, book reviews, feature articles and dissertation abstracts.
