EMBO Press has chosen Springer Nature to be its  publishing partner from 1 January 2024. Authors who publish in EMBO Press journals will benefit from the global reach of Springer Nature’s leading journals. In addition, authors will have the option to transfer manuscripts between journals in the EMBO Press and Springer Nature portfolios. 

This announcement follows EMBO Press’ recent decision that to advance global discoverability, transparency and availability of published research outcomes all papers will be published with full gold open access (OA) from 2024, and curated source data will be posted with fully reproducible methods. 

The journals, The EMBO Journal, EMBO Reports, EMBO Molecular Medicine, and Molecular Systems Biology, which publish high-value articles with important advances in all areas of biology and biomedical sciences from around the globe, join Springer Nature’s portfolio of around 600 fully OA journals, including Nature Communications, and more than 1,700 hybrid journals including Nature and the Nature research titles.

Harsh Jegadeesan, Chief Publishing Officer at Springer Nature, said:“I am delighted to welcome EMBO Press to Springer Nature and look forward to working together to advance equitable and market-leading Open Science and Open Access policies. This common goal, along with our shared focus on improving the research publishing experience, will accelerate our efforts to help address the world’s urgent challenges.”

Fiona Watt, EMBO Director, commented: “We are proud of our journals and the services we offer authors and readers. We review our publishing partnerships on a regular basis. Out of the many expressions of interest that we received last year from both non-profit and for-profit publishers we chose Springer Nature because it best meets our needs at a time when science publishing is in considerable flux. EMBO Press has been consistently innovative since its inception, and we have chosen a publisher that will not only help us grow but also facilitate widespread adoption of the Open Science activities that we have piloted successfully.”
