    Global Food Security aims to publish papers that contribute to better understanding of economic, social, biophysical, technological, and institutional drivers of current and future global food security. Also, Global Food Security aims to stimulate debate that is rooted in strong science, has strong interdisciplinary connections, and recognizes tradeoffs that occur in reconciling competing objectives and outcomes that may differ depending on spatial and temporal scale.

  • New open access journal: Current Plant Biology

    More information:

    The field of fundamental plant science is increasingly becoming an interdisciplinary domain of research, now including physics, mathematics and chemistry disciplines. This trend is largely fuelled by the last decade's technical advances and discoveries which have created new challenges, such as data storage, analysis and prediction. Current Plant Biology will publish articles that focus on this newly emerged interdisciplinary research domain.

  • Open Access Options

    Access to quality research is vital to the scientific community and beyond. We support sustainable access and work hard to provide a range of open access options alongside our access initiatives to ensure everyone can read, use and trust the latest research.

    We are committed to working in partnership with the research community, librarians, funders and other stakeholders. Our Elsevier team is continually on the road meeting the community, participating in discussions and establishing partnerships which will help support increase access to research.
