RSC Chemical Biology offers authors a trusted, reliable option for publishing their work open access.

As the first Royal Society of Chemistry journal to offer transparent peer review, authors also have the option to publish reviewers’ comments, the editor’s decision letter, and authors’ response alongside the article. It’s part of our commitment to make research and decision-making more open, robust and accessible.


Supporting an open future for vital research

All papers published in the journal will always be free to access. We are waiving article processing charges for the first two years, so until mid-2022 the journal will be completely free to publish in for authors, as well as free to read.


We hope you enjoy reading the exciting research in our first issue!
