The eLife journal site launch – 1.5 weeks to go
In June 2011, three of the most prestigious research funding bodies in the world announced an unprecedented collaboration to inspire change in the way scientific discoveries are communicated and shared. The first product of this collaboration is eLife, an open-access journal for the most influential discoveries in life science and biomedicine, which will launch next week: http://www.elifesciences.org/the-elife-journal-site-launch/.
What makes an eLife paper?
To give a sense of the richness of science that we aim to see represented in eLife, we asked our editorial leadership to share their ideas and opinions about what great science looks like to them. Learn what the editorial team shared here http://www.elifesciences.org/what-makes-an-elife-paper/.
eLife API is up and running
