Researchers uploading their work to bioRxiv now have an easier route to submit their work to Cambridge University Press journals thanks to a limited trial that’s currently running. Six Cambridge journals are taking part in the ‘Direct Transfer’ initiative that allows authors to submit papers to journals or peer review services by transmitting their manuscript files and metadata directly from bioRxiv. This means authors don’t have to spend time re-loading manuscript files and re-entering author information on the journal or peer review service website.


Partnership with the Press

The following journals will be trialed with the new initiative:

  • Genetics Research
  • Animal
  • Bulletin of Entomological Research
  • Experimental Agriculture
  • Journal of Helminthology
  • Seed Science Research

The trial reinforces our belief that Open Access is a critical first piece in a longer journey to increase the open research capabilities available to our community.
