(5 May 2020) We are all facing extraordinary times with the current Covid-19 pandemic and, in support of the community, Portland Press is suspending paywalls on all content published across the Biochemical Society’s seven journals until further notice. This means access to articles will be freely available to all, whether working remotely or in a laboratory, across the globe.
Making all of our content freely available means that we are able to support the community in ensuring that everyone has access to the best research and review content, whether they are researching the pandemic itself, related conditions, underlying pathways and therapeutics, or continuing research in other fields. We want to ensure that all researchers are unhindered in their work given the current circumstances.
As the wholly-owned publishing arm of the Biochemical Society, Portland Press has been able to respond quickly to researchers’ needs, ensuring that paywalls have been suspended as soon as possible.
We hope that we have played a small part in supporting the community and wish everyone well.
