Open Access

Want to publish open access in Elsevier's Biochemistry titles, now you can.

Many of Elsevier's journals support open access, giving you the ability to publish open access in your favourite journal. Even more choice with new journals dedicated to open access journals also available.

Elsevier offers you the option to publish papers open access. All articles published open access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download from ScienceDirect.

Permitted reuse is defined by your choice of Creative Commons user licenses. To provide open access, titles have a publication fee which needs to be met by the authors or their research funders for each article published in this method.

Further information can be found via or visit the homepage of any journal and view the open access pod for details related to that title.

Your Paper Your Way – no unnecessary formatting requests

For your initial submission, there is no strict formatting beyond common sense, only when your paper reaches final revision stage, will you be requested to format your paper to the journal style.

We differentiate the requirements for new and revised submissions

As part of the Your Paper Your Way service, you may choose to submit your manuscript as a single file to be used in the refereeing process. This can be a PDF file or a Word document, in any format or lay-out that can be used by referees to evaluate your manuscript. It should contain high enough quality figures for refereeing. If you prefer to do so, you may still provide all or some of the source files at the initial submission.
