What is Gold open access?
RSC Chemical Biology is a new gold open access journal for exceptional findings in chemical biology. Three articles have been published so far, one of which is transparent peer reviewed. The journal’s first complete issue is scheduled for publication at the end of April.
The journal welcomes a range of contributions, from the development of new chemical and biological techniques and tools, to studies furthering the understanding or manipulation of biological processes at the molecular level. It also encourages translational research that bridges chemistry and chemical biology to medicine.
Article publication charges for the journal are waived until mid-2022, meaning it will be free to read and free to publish in for its first two years.
We’ll continue to monitor the uptake and usage of transparent peer review on RSC Chemical Biology, with expansion to further journals in mind.
