Elsevier launches new open access journal: Molecular Metabolism

Munich, January 28, 2013 - Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Molecular Metabolism in affiliation with the German Research Center for Environmental Health (Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen, Munich, Germany) and the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD, Germany). Molecular Metabolism is a new, open access journal devoted to the rapid publication of breakthroughs in mechanistic metabolism research.

Metabolic diseases including obesity, diabetes and related co-morbidities remain on the rise. Impaired cellular metabolism is emerging as an etiological factor for an increasing number of illnesses, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases or neurodegenerative disorders. Molecular Metabolism aims to publish hypothesis-driven research from leading scientists, thus paving the way to a better understanding of metabolic physiology, and enabling progress toward the development of personalized medicines for preventing and curing these metabolism-related diseases.

Matthias Tschp (Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen and Technische Universitt Mnchen) founded the journal together with Jens Brning (University of Cologne), Tamas Horvath (Yale University), and Martin Myers (University of Michigan). Their vision for Molecular Metabolism is an open access journal with a fast track publication process aiming for peer review-based decisions within one week. Molecular Metabolism will be able to offer online publication of accepted manuscripts within 14 days of submission in order to be able to disseminate breakthrough discoveries in mechanistic and translational metabolism research with unprecedented speed.

"Translational research is an integral part of the research approach for investigators around the world. It enables the transformation of knowledge into medical progress and the realization of the translational potential of basic research findings for medical applications," said Matthias Tschp. "Molecular Metabolism has been launched to provide a home for translational metabolic disease research, and we welcome submissions from all metabolism researchers."
