Open Access Resources

Open Access Content refers to free, unrestricted online access research outputs such as journal article and books. OA content is open to all, with no access fee. (Springer)  
  • Biology Biology (ISSN 2079-7737) is an international, peer-reviewed, quick-refereeing open access journal of Biological Science published by MDPI online. It publishes reviews, research papers and communications in all areas of biology and at the interface of related disciplines.
  • Biology Open Biology Open (BiO) is an open access rnal that publishes rigorously conducted, high-quality research across the breadth of the biological and biomedical sciences. It provides timely, thorough, constructive and fair peer review, with a focus on supporting researchers and reducing the pain to publish.
  • BMC Biology BMC Biology is an open access journal publishing outstanding research in all areas of biology, with a publication policy that combines selection for broad interest and importance with a commitment to serving authors well.
  • BMC Ecology and Evolution BMC Ecology and Evolution is an open access, peer-reviewed journal interested in all aspects of ecological and evolutionary biology. The journal considers articles on a broad range of topics, including population genetics, conservation genetics, phylogenetics, behavioural ecology, population ecology, macroecology, palaeontology, biodiversity (e.g. environmental DNA approaches), theoretical research (e.g. terraforming) and ecological and evolutionary developmental biology.
  • Contributions to Zoology Contributions to Zoology solicits high-quality papers in all systematics-related branches of comparative zoology (including paleozoology). Preference will be given to manuscripts dealing with conceptual issues and to integrative papers (e.g., ecologyand biodiversity, morphology and phylogeny and character state evolution, phylogenyand historical biogeography, systematics and bioinformatics, bioinformatics andbiodiversity, habitat disturbance and biogeography, etc.).
  • eLife eLife is a non-profit organisation created by funders and led by researchers. It publishes open-access journal on Biochemistry and Chemical Biology, Cancer Biology, Cell Biology, Chromosomes and Gene Expression, Computational and Systems Biology, Developmental Biology, Ecology, Epidemiology and Global Health, Evolutionay Biology,  Genetics and Genomics, Plant Biology, and Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics.
  • Molecular Systems Biology Molecular Systems Biology is a peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes high-quality research in the fields of systems biologysynthetic biology and systems medicine.
  • The Open Biology Journal The Open Biology Journal is an open access online journal, which publishes research, review/mini-review and letter articles and guest edited single topic issues, reviews and letters in all areas of biology and at the interface of related disciplines.
  • PLOS Biology PLOS Biology publishes significant advances across the biological sciences. And we push boundaries. 
    Designed to advance science and the communities who depend upon it, we’re transforming research communication to fit the research process. Evolving article types and policies empower authors to share the full story behind their science with a global audience of researchers, educators, policy makers, patient advocacy groups, and the public.
  • PLOS Computational Biology PLOS Computational Biology features works of exceptional significance that further our understanding of living systems at all scales—from molecules and cells, to patient populations and ecosystems—through the application of computational methods. Readers include life and computational scientists, who can take the important findings presented here to the next level of discovery.
  • PLOS Genetics PLOS Genetics publishes human studies, as well as research on model organisms—from mice and flies, to plants and bacteria. Our emphasis is on studies of broad interest that provide significant insight into a biological process or processes. Topics include (but are not limited to) gene discovery and function, population genetics, genome projects, comparative and functional genomics, medical genetics, disease biology, evolution, gene expression, complex traits, chromosome biology, and epigenetics.
