A Journal of Biosciences: Zeitschrift für Naturforschung C (ZNC) is an international scientific journal and a community resource for the emerging field of natural and natural-like products.
The journal publishes original research on the isolation (including structure elucidation), bio-chemical synthesis and bioactivities of natural products, their biochemistry, pharmacology, biotechnology, and their biological activity and innovative developed computational methods for predicting the structure and/or function of natural products.
A Journal of Biosciences: Zeitschrift für Naturforschung C (ZNC) welcomes research papers in fields on the chemistry-biology boundary which address scientific ideas and approaches to generate and understand natural compounds on a molecular level and/or use them to stimulate and manipulate biological processes.

Alfred Klemm, then working at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Chemistry in Tailfingen, founded the Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung together with Hans Friedrich-Freksa in 1946. In 1947 the Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung was divided into two parts which were devoted to the physical sciences (Section A) and the chemical and biological sciences including biophysics (Section B). It was then only in 1973, that Section C was established for the biological sciences while Section B concentrated on chemistry. In Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung C – A Journal of Biosciences, as it is fully referred to now, research papers are presented in fields on the chemistry-biology boundary which address scientific ideas and approaches to generate and understand natural compounds on a molecular level and/or use them to stimulate and manipulate biological processes.
