Why publish in The FEBS Journal?
The FEBS Journal publishes high-quality full-length papers and reviews, with particular focus on biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology and cell biology. We work hard to make publishing with the Journal as quick and straightforward as possible, offering:
A fast and fair review process
• All submissions are evaluated in depth by a scientific editor with expertise in your field.
• Editorial decisions are made within 7–10 days. Referee comments are returned a month after submission.*
• 84% of accepted papers undergo just a single round of revision.*
• The average time from submission to acceptance is just 97 days.*
• Accepted articles are available online 4–5 days after formal acceptance.*

Hassle-free publishing and great accessibility

• Review articles are freely accessible immediately on publication.
• All content is freely available after one year.

High visibility of published papers
• Each issue of the Journal contains only ~10 research papers, meaning your work will stand out from the crowd.

• Published papers are publicised via FEBS' and Wiley's active social media accounts.
