Celebrating Scientific Innovation Since 1996.
JALA and JBS readers, authors, editors and reviewers are life sciences discovery and technology professionals. They are academic, commercial and government researchers, scientists and engineers who conduct research, and develop and implement new technologies. Together, these journals address the full spectrum of issues that are mission-critical to this important audience, enabling research teams to gain scientific insights; increase productivity; elevate data quality; reduce process cycle times; and enable research and development that otherwise would be impossible.
Both JBS and JALA consider previously unpublished, original research and review manuscripts on an ongoing basis from SLAS members and nonmembers. Accepted manuscripts typically publish with a DOI number to JALA Online and JBS Online within 30 days, making them immediately searchable and citeable.
Editor-in-Chief: Edward Kai-Hua Chow, PhD, National University of Singapore
JALA explores ways in which scientists adapt advancements in technology for scientific exploration and experimentation. Six issues are published annually in February, April, June, August, October and December.
Editor-in-Chief: Robert M. Campbell, Ph.D., Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis, IN (USA)
JBS reports how scientists develop and utilize novel technologies and/or approaches to provide and characterize chemical and biological tools to understand and treat human disease. Ten issues are published annually in January, February, March, April, June, July, August, September, October and December.
JALA and JBS open access to their peer reviewed scientific content one year after final (print) publication. JALA and JBS also offer open access options to ensure author compliance with major funding mandates of RCUK, NIH, Wellcome Trust and other agencies. The early open access fee is $3,000. Contact email@example.com for more information.
JALA and JBS rely on volunteer experts to rigorously review manuscripts prior to publication to ensure scientific excellence. Anyone interested in serving as an SLAS volunteer to assess prospective manuscripts for JALA and/or JBS, may register at JBS SAGEtrack and/or JALA SAGEtrack. Please pay special attention to the keywords (areas of expertise) in your personal profile to ensure manuscripts and reviewers are appropriately matched. For more info about expectations for this volunteer role, please read the JALA & JBS Guidelines for Manuscript Reviewers.
