In 2017, after 21 years of publication as the Journal of Biomolecular Screening (JBS) and the Journal of Laboratory Automation(JALA), the official journals of SLAS changed their names to SLAS Discovery (Advancing Life Sciences R&D) and SLAS Technology (Advancing Life Sciences Innovation).

Together, these journals enable life sciences researchers to:

  • Gain scientific insights
  • Increase productivity
  • Elevate data quality
  • Reduce process cycle times
  • Conduct research and development that otherwise would be impossible

Backed by the high-quality education standards of SLAS. Rigorously peer-reviewed. PubMed:Medline-indexed. NO article processing charges (APCs) for regular publication. Open access options are available.
