The Journal of Biomolecular NMR publishes research on technical developments and innovative applications of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy for the study of structure and dynamic properties of biopolymers in solution, liquid crystals, solids and mixed environments. Some of the main topics include experimental and computational approaches for the determination of three-dimensional structures of proteins and nucleic acids, advancements in the automated analysis of NMR spectra, and new methods to probe and interpret molecular motions.

The journal was founded in 1991 by Kurt Wüthrich, who later received a Nobel prize in Chemistry in 2002 for his seminal contributions to the field of NMR[1]. Now, the current editor-in-chief is Gerhard Wagner (Harvard Medical School).[2]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2017 impact factor of 2.534, ranking it 174th out of 292 journals in the category "Biochemistry & Molecular Biology"[3] and 15th out of 42 journals in the category "Spectroscopy".[4]
