Heidelberg, New York, and Cold Spring Harbor, 3 April 2018 – EMBO Press, Rockefeller University Press, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press today announced the launch of Life Science Alliance, a new global, open access, editorially independent, peer-reviewed journal committed to rapid, fair, and transparent publication of valuable research from across the life sciences. Manuscripts can be submitted to Life Science Alliance directly or by seamless transfer without reformatting from nine partner journals: The EMBO Journal, EMBO Reports, Molecular Systems Biology, EMBO Molecular Medicine, Journal of Cell Biology, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Journal of General Physiology, Genes & Development, and Genome Research.
The alliance between three distinguished academic publishing houses offers authors a new and attractive choice among not-for-profit, open access journals. Authors of papers transferred to Life Science Alliance with or without referee reports are given a firm commitment prior to transfer. Timely editorial decisions are made through collaborative consultation between the editorial team and leading academic scientists. No more than one round of experimental revision will be requested.
Papers published in Life Science Alliance meet high scientific and editorial standards established by the alliance partners for new results. Life Science Alliance welcomes important confirmatory, negative, and refuting
