New open access journal in the life sciences

HFSP awardees will soon have a new venue for publishing their results: eLife – the anticipated new open-access journal from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust. The editorial responsibility is in the hands of outstanding scientists – many of whom are recent HFSP grant awardees.

The launch of the eLife journal website is expected later this winter, but already you can look at the inaugural release of the first articles to find out whether eLife could be ‘a fit’ for your next important paper. The initial collection of content covers a broad range of topics from biomedical and life sciences.
