About

iScience

Cover Image - iScience, Volume 25, Issue 7

iScience is a new open access journal from Cell Press that provides a platform for original research in the life, physical, earth, and health sciences. The primary criterion for publication in iScience is a significant contribution to a relevant field combined with robust results and underlying methodology. The advances appearing in iScience include both fundamental and applied investigations across this interdisciplinary range of topic areas. To support transparency in scientific investigation, we are happy to consider replication studies and papers that describe negative results.
