Since the launch of its very first journal, MDPI has had a vested interest in open access scientific communication in all of its forms. Going beyond open access publications, MDPI launched Sciforum [1
] in 2009 as a platform for scholarly exchange, discussion of novel research topics and establishing collaborations. To further enable the communication of results worldwide, we have launched the journal Proceedings
, together with a series of proceeding journals [2
] dedicated to communicating the scientific results and discussions arising from conferences, as well as workshops and other academic meetings. To expand and complement our series of proceedings journals, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the new journal Biology and Life Sciences Forum
(ISSN 2673-9976) [3
Biology and Life Sciences Forum is a journal that publishes proceedings resulting from academic conferences in all areas of biology and life sciences. We also welcome submissions from multidisciplinary conferences that focus on research at the interface of related disciplines. As this field rapidly evolves, it is important to establish a stage where industry and academia can come together and exchange ideas to advance the translation of research into practice.
We welcome all conference and event organizers to submit their proposals for publishing their conference proceedings to the Biology and Life Sciences Forum editorial office, and look forward to a fruitful collaboration with the Biology and Life Sciences community.
