FEBS Journal is an international journal devoted to the rapid publication of full-length papers describing original research in all areas of the molecular life sciences. Preference is given to papers that bring new molecular or mechanistic insight to biomedical and biological problems.
Papers should be clearly written for a general audience in a way that draws attention to their novelty and significance; work that is incomplete, inconclusive or merely confirmatory will not be published. Papers that describe the cloning and expression of genes will not be published unless the work throws some important new light on the gene or its expression product.
FEBS Journal also publishes reviews and minireviews on a wide range of topics, which may be solicited or submitted.
