Nature Publishing Group (NPG) is inviting submissions for Experimental & Molecular Medicine (EMM)following its publishing partnership with the Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (KSBMB). NPG will co-publish EMM, South Korea’s highest ranked journal, on nature.com from January 2013. Submissions can now be made at www.nature.com/emm.
EMM publishes original research papers and reviews on genetic, molecular and cellular studies of human physiology and diseases. Research areas include cancer biology; immunology; neuroscience; cardiovascular biology; metabolic diseases; genetics and genomics; gene therapy; and stem cells and regenerative medicine. The journal seeks to highlight the improved clinical benefits for human health from experimental and translational research performed using specific molecular tools.
The international editorial board is led by Editor-in-Chief Professor Dae-Myung Jue, of the Catholic University of Korea, Seoul. With the move to NPG, content will be published as open access, freely available to researchers worldwide. An article-processing charge (APC) will be levied per article accepted for publication, and authors have a choice of two Creative Commons licenses.
“We are pleased to have partnered with NPG and look forward to publishing EMM on the renowned nature.com platform,” said Professor Dae-Myung Jue. “We hope to develop our journal within the community by sharing the latest developments in experimental and medical research to a wider global audience.”
“We are delighted to have signed our first publishing partnership in Korea,” said Dugald McGlashan, Publisher of NPG’s Asia-Pacific Academic Journals. “We look forward to receiving our first manuscript submissions through nature.com and are working closely with the KSBMB to ensure a successful transition to nature.com in 2013.”
