N – New journal from FEBS

Another News Notes, another new open biology journal. The Federation of Biochemical Societies (FEBS) has launched a new ‘open-access’ journal called FEBS Open Bio. The journal, published by Elsevier, is open for new submissions and also for direct transfer of articles rejected by other FEBS publications (FEBS Letters, FEBS Journal and Molecular Oncology). All articles will be freely available on Elsevier’s SciVerse ScienceDirect platform, although the usage rights are more limited than with other fully open-access journals.
