Journal of Biological Chemistry and Other ASBMB Journals Are Now Fully Open Access

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology announced that the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC), Molecular and Cellular Proteomics (MCP), and the Journal of Lipid Research (JLR) will now be published as fully open-access journals as of January 2021. This means  articles published, starting in January 2021, are freely available to everyone.

“This is a landmark decision that will have huge impact for readers and authors. As many of you know, many researchers have called for journals to become open access to facilitate scientific progress, and many funding agencies across the globe are either already requiring or considering a requirement that all scientific publications based on research they support be published in open-access journals.”

Read more about how ASBMB made the decision to move to an open access model and the process towards that model.
