When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.


Empowering a community publishing articles in Biochemistry, including enzymology, structural biology, lipidomics and lipids, proteomics and proteins, biocatalysis, metabolism, biosynthesis and much more.

To date, over 44,830 articles in Biochemistry have been published with more than 1.5m citations from authors in 198 countries.

Join thousands of your peers who choose PLOS to represent their Biochemistry research.

Our community is a collaboration between authors, editors and reviewers. In-house editorial subject experts work alongside section editors, academic editors, and journal editorial boards to provide accurate assessment that readers can trust.

We put research and researchers first, collaborating to make science, and the process of publishing science, fair, equitable, and accessible for the whole community.

At the most basic level, our research is funded by the UK taxpayer, so it’s vital that it isn't hidden behind a paywall. But I think it goes deeper than that – we’re all standing on the shoulders of giants and learning from what others have done before us. To deny that knowledge to anyone else would be wrong in many ways, but at the most simple level it would result in more time and money spent on research that has already been done.
