|About FEBS and FEBS Press
FEBS is a charitable organization, supporting research and education in molecular life sciences through its journals, fellowships, courses, congress and other activities. It brings together the thousands of members of national biochemistry and molecular biology societies in Europe and neighbouring regions. The publication of high-quality journals by scientists for scientists is one of FEBS’ core objectives, with the revenue raised supporting fellowships, courses, congresses and other activities.FEBS Press was established in 2016 – in partnership with Wiley, a publisher renowned for its society support – to better integrate its four journals with other FEBS services, and to ensure seamless introduction of new initiatives for all its authors and readers.
