PUBLISSO - The open access publishing portal

PUBLISSO is an open access publishing portal for life sciences run by ZB MED. We invite all scientists and researchers from the field of life sciences to publish their work and research data under the open access model. We offer platforms for both gold open access publishing (immediate publishing in an OA journal) and green open access publishing (self-archiving in a repository). PUBLISSO also provides a wide range  of advisory and consulting services. Please browse through the FAQs on our website to get more information. We also run workshops and hold presentations on the topics of open access and research data. What´s more, we aim to keep you updated on the ongoing evolution of our publishing platform for life sciences as we strive to implement key results from relevant committees as well as the latest innovations and policy guidelines.
