John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced today that Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine and Microbial Biotechnology have joined the Wiley Open Access publishing program. All articles in these two journals are now open access and free to view, download and share.
Since its launch in 1996, Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine has attracted very high quality submissions and attained an Impact Factor of 4.125, placing it 22nd in the Medicine Research and Experimental ISI Category. With its emphasis on translational medicine, and high quality review series, Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is of interest to a wide spectrum of researchers and clinicians. Converting to open access allows all readers to benefit from the high-level research advances reported in the journal, driving biomedical research forward and accelerating discovery.
"We are excited that Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is joining the Wiley Open Access publishing program, as it will make the highly topical and well-regarded review series commissioned by our Editor-in-Chief, Professor LM Popescu, available to all," said Dr. Jo Wixon, Senior Editor, Health Sciences, Wiley.
Since its inception, Microbial Biotechnology has published papers of original research reporting significant advances in any aspect of microbial applications to biotechnologies, making it of interest to a wide spectrum of researchers across the scope of both Microbiology and Biotechnology. Converting to open access will significantly benefit readers and researchers in the field of biotechnology, through the dissemination of high quality research from Microbial Biotechnology.
"The Society for Applied Microbiology is delighted that this change is taking place. Enabling readers to access the contents of this already successful journal free of charge will foster progress in this important area of applied microbiology," said Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM) President, Professor Martin Adams.
