The publication of high-quality journals by scientists for scientists is one of the core objectives of FEBS. The four scientific journals of FEBS – The FEBS JournalFEBS LettersMolecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio – are now grouped together as ‘FEBS Press’.

The journals have been central to the development of FEBS and its ongoing activities. Through their distinguished editorial boards, peer review procedures and productive relationships with publishing partners, the journals have not only provided scientists with effective routes for research dissemination and assimilation, but also an income stream to fund the other programmes of FEBS.
