The FEBS Journal
The FEBS Journal is an international journal devoted to the rapid publication of full-length papers covering a wide range of topics in any area of the molecular life sciences. The criteria for acceptance are originality and high quality research, which will provide novel perspectives in a specific area of research, and will be of interest to our broad readership.
The journal does not accept papers that describe the expression of specific genes and proteins or test the effect of a drug or reagent, without presenting any biological significance. Papers describing bioinformatics, modelling or structural studies of specific systems or molecules should usually include experimental data.

- Authors can opt-out of publicly displaying the article's peer review content
- Reviewers can choose to sign their reviewer reports with their name or as anonymous
