BPPB has set two paper awards, namely
Award for Outstanding Biophysics and Physicobiology Paper and
Biophysics and Physicobiology Editors' Choice Award.
The detail of the award is explained below.
Award for Outstanding Paper
This award is given by the Biophysical Society of Japan to authors who contributed to the advancement of biophysics and to BPPB journal and its predecessor, BIOPHYSICS journal. The Society selects an article among papers that were published during a specific time span before the year of the award and have an established reputation. The award will go to a groundbreaking article of which importance has been recognized.

Editors' Choice Award
This award is given by the Biophysical Society of Japan to authors of the manuscript on BPPB who made a scientifically unique contribution to biophysics. The Editorial Board selects an article among papers that were published last year. The award will go to an article which caught the eyes of the an editor.
