eLife selects Highwire platform for new open access journal

eLife, the new funder-researcher collaboration in science communication, has selected HighWire Press as the platform for its new open‐access journal for life and biomedical science.
The journal will launch toward the end of 2012 and will open for manuscript submissions soon.
First announced in summer 2011, eLife is a researcher-led initiative for the best in science and science communication. Backed by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust, the initiative’s first aim is to launch an open-access journal for outstanding advances in life science and biomedicine, which is also a platform for experimentation and showcasing innovation in research communication.      more
