FEBS is pleased to announce that ÖGMBT members can now choose to publish open access articles in two FEBS  journals (The FEBS Journal and FEBS Letters) at no direct cost.

In February 2021, Wiley, FEBS’ publishing partner, agreed a 3-year combined open access publication and subscription agreement with the Austrian Academic Library Consortium (KEMÖ) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

Researchers at affiliated institutes will be able to both access Wiley’s subscription journals and to publish accepted articles open access in both The FEBS Journal and FEBS Letters with no direct charge. Corresponding authors of articles accepted for publication in either FEBS Letters or The FEBS Journal should click Order Open Access (see here) when prompted to make their article open access with no direct charge.

FEBS is delighted to be able to offer this service to members of ÖGMBT. And of course, all FEBS members and others will benefit from being able to read these articles free of charge immediately on publication. Such ‘transitional’ arrangements move the FEBS Press journals closer to a more open research landscape, fostering a rapid pace of discovery and scientific advancement. At the same time, the long-term future of the journals, and the funds that they provide for FEBS other activities, is secured.

We hope that you will consider submitting your next paper to one of the FEBS journals.
