American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), the American Physiological Society (APS), and The Public Library of Science (PLOS) have together added an additional seven journals to bioRxiv’s one-click submission program supported by BenchPress, the manuscript submission system from HighWire Press.
bioRxiv, the free, not-for-profit online preprint service for the life sciences, accelerates the research community’s dissemination and discussion of new scientific results. bioRxiv also offers authors the opportunity to submit manuscript files and metadata directly to 38 journals, with a single click, avoiding the need to re-enter information.
Dr. John Inglis, Co-founder of bioRxiv and Executive Director and Publisher of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press said: “Submissions to bioRxiv are rising at an increasingly rapid rate and we are delighted that ASBMB, APS, and PLOS have joined the growing number of journal publishers who assist preprint authors by offering the convenience and speed of manuscript submission from bioRxiv.”
John Sack, Founding Director, HighWire Press said, “Interoperability across technology systems is enabled by BenchPress and the HighWire Open Platform, which bioRxiv uses to accept preprints. CrossRef is introducing standards for preprints through the publishing process which HighWire is implementing.”
Dan Filby, CEO, HighWire Press, adds “We value our partnership with bioRxiv to provide innovative solutions for authors and the research community. We continue to advance strategic partnerships that lead the industry to meet the demand for faster dissemination of research.”
The following journals have added one-click submissions from bioRxiv: Journal of Biological Chemistry, The Journal of Lipid Research, Molecular & Cellular Proteomics from the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Journal of Neurophysiology from American Physiological Society, and PLOS One, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, and PLOS Medicine from Public Library of Science.
