The Biochemical Society is pleased to announce that its peer-reviewed journal, Bioscience Reports will be accepting submissions for Open Access from 2nd April with the first full open access issue available from August 2012. For more than 30 years Bioscience Reports has published articles on the fundamental mechanisms involved in cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry to enable our understanding of normal development and diseases.
Caroline Black, Managing Director of Portland Press, has confirmed the reasons for the transition of Bioscience Reports to open access: “Portland Press is committed to exploring all ways of broadening access to and dissemination of research. We believe that for Bioscience Reports open access is the most appropriate way to achieve this and are excited about the opportunities ahead for the journal. This development also supports the Biochemical Society’s mission to promote the molecular and cellular biosciences for the benefit of all.”
