Elsevier Launches New Open Access Journal: Translational Proteomics

First articles now available online on ScienceDirect

Geneva, Switzerland, May 27, 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Translational Proteomics, an online-only, open access journal devoted to transferring fundamental discoveries in the field of proteomics to clinical applications, accelerating understanding and treatment of human diseases.

Jean-Charles Sanchez, Associate Professor at the University of Geneva, Head of the Biomedical Research Proteomics Group and Director of the Proteomics Core Facility of the Faculty of Medicine, will serve as Editor-in-Chief. The journal aims to cover all areas of research in human proteomics using multi-disciplinary approaches to untangle complex disease processes, such as oncology, neurology, immunology, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases and any internal medical disorder. Special sections within the journal will highlight research in areas like systems biology and integrative bioinformatics, clinical proteomics and personalized medicine, comparative proteomics and drug development, medical bioinformatics and biostatistics, food and health.

”With the launch of Translational Proteomics, we want to help the scientific and medical communities overcome the challenges they face on the long path from basic research to patient care,” said Professor Sanchez. “By focusing on connecting basic proteomics research to ultimate clinical applications, the journal will provide a space for publications detailing proteomics experiments, from early discovery to validation and the bedside.”

"We are excited about the launch of Translational Proteomics”, added Dolors Alsina, Executive Publisher at Elsevier. “This journal provides a unique platform for the publication of high-quality, multi-disciplinary studies, combining research which, until now, would have been broken into two or more specialized publications.”
