Celebrating Scientific Innovation Since 1996.
SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology readers, authors, editors and reviewers are practicing life sciences professionals. They are academic, commercial and government researchers, scientists and engineers who conduct research, and develop and implement new technologies. Together, these journals address the full spectrum of issues that are mission-critical to this important audience, enabling research teams to gain scientific insights; increase productivity; elevate data quality; reduce process cycle times; and enable research and development that otherwise would be impossible.
Both SLAS journals consider previously unpublished, original research and review manuscripts on an ongoing basis from SLAS members and nonmembers. Accepted manuscripts typically publish with a DOI to SLAS Technology Online and SLAS Discovery Online within 30 days, making them immediately searchable and citable. NO article processing charges (APCs). Open access options available.
SLAS journals are published in partnership with SAGE Publishing.
Advancing Life Sciences R&D
Editor-in-Chief: Robert M. Campbell, Ph.D., Twentyeight-seven Therapeutics, Boston, MA (USA)
SLAS Discovery reports how scientists develop and utilize novel technologies and/or approaches to provide and characterize chemical and biological tools to understand and treat human disease. Read more about the editorial scope. Ten issues are published annually in January, February, March, April, June, July, August, September, October and December.
SLAS Discovery was published previously (1996-2016) as the Journal of Biomolecular Screening (JBS).
Translating Life Sciences Innovation
Editor-in-Chief: Edward Kai-Hua Chow, Ph.D., National University of Singapore
SLAS Technology explores ways in which scientists adapt advancements in technology for scientific exploration and experimentation. Read more about the editorial scope. Six issues are published annually in February, April, June, August, October and December.
SLAS Technology was published previously (1996-2016) as the Journal of Laboratory Automation (JALA).
SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology offer free access to peer-reviewed scientific content one year after final (print) publication. SLAS journals also offer immediate open access options to ensure author compliance with major funding mandates of RCUK, NIH, Wellcome Trust and other agencies. The early open access fee is $3,000. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Authors are responsible for submitting their published work to the U.S. National Institutes of Health Public Access Manuscript Submission System in accordance with NIH Public Access Policies. For more helpful information, visit:
SLAS relies on volunteer experts to rigorously review manuscripts prior to publication to ensure scientific excellence. Anyone interested in volunteering to assess prospective manuscripts may register at SLAS Discovery SAGEtrack and/or SLAS Technology SAGEtrack. Please pay special attention to the keywords (areas of expertise) in your personal profile to ensure manuscripts and reviewers are appropriately matched. New volunteers are encouraged to complete the free ACS Reviewer Lab training program. For more info about expectations for this volunteer role, please read the SLAS Journals Guidelines for Manuscript Reviewers.
