A community of fast, open access journals where every article matters

Created with research community needs in mind, Discover journals — all open access (OA) — focus on supporting researchers in quickly and openly publishing their scientific discoveries.

This means:
  • A streamlined submission process
  • Rapid review and publication
  • A high level of author service at every stage.

Discover journals serve communities spanning all disciplines across the applied, physical, life, medical, and social sciences.
