eLife publishes outstanding work across the life sciences and biomedicine and is generously supported by its Founders, HHMI, Max Planck Institute and The Wellcome Trust, who have recently announced the renewal of their funding for a second five-year term until 2022.
The editors of eLife are an international team of 300 leading researchers, led by Randy Schekman, recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In a little over four years, eLife has become an open-access publisher and a technology company with a team of 29 staff in Cambridge, UK. We have developed and run an open-source platform and have published over 2000 first-rate research articles.
The community behind eLife are keenly aware of the pressures faced by junior investigators. To pursue their research interests and advance their careers, early-stage investigators need to communicate their scientific accomplishments and build their reputations. eLife aims to help.
eLife now offers its authors the option to publish accepted papers on the eLife website just a few days after acceptance by the journal - reducing the time from acceptance to the public release of important new research from around a month to just a few days.
