Announcing Cell Reports -- a new open-access journal from Cell Press

Cell Press announced today the launch of its newest journal, Cell Reports, which will publish its first issue in January 2012. Cell Reports, the first open-access online-only journal from Cell Press, will publish high-quality research across the entire life science spectrum. The journal will focus on shorter, single-point articles, entitled Reports, in addition to regular full-length articles. As with all Cell Press journals, the primary criterion for both formats will be new biological insight.

Cell Press journals have always placed a high priority on ensuring sustainable access to content by offering free featured articles and providing sponsored-access opportunities, as well as by making all content freely available after 12 months. Cell Reports builds on this commitment and provides authors with the option to publish in a prestigious journal with immediate fully-available global access. Authors will retain full copyright over their articles, and they will be able to choose between two Creative Commons licenses for publication, one of which is the most permissive license that Creative Commons offers.

"Cell Press is ideally placed to create a top-tier journal with a sustainable open-access model. By tapping into our extensive in-house expertise, we can deliver a fast, informed, high-quality review process across a broad range of disciplines," said Emilie Marcus, Editor-in-Chief of Cell Press and Editor of Cell. "In addition, we have an excellent track record of launching successful highly-regarded journals even in very competitive arenas, and authors and readers can expect nothing less from Cell Reports."

Boyana Konforti is the Editor of Cell Reports. Boyana earned her Ph.D. at Stanford University with Ron Davis, studying the mechanism of DNA recombination. She then did postdoctoral studies on the mechanisms of RNA splicing at Rockefeller University with Magda Konarska and at Columbia University with Anna Pyle. Boyana has been a professional editor for over 13 years, and she brings a wealth of experience in scientific journal publishing, as well as a deep understanding of biology and the communities that Cell Press serves. "An exciting feature will be our unique editorial board, which will consist of up-and-coming scientists who are the new leaders in their respective fields and will help shape the journal from the ground up," said Boyana.
