Partnership with ELSEVIER
The Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Registry has entered an agreement with Elsevier to publish the description of cell lines registered with hPSCreg under the article type Lab Resource: Stem Cell Line in the journal Stem Cell Research
Registrants of pluripotent cell lines which have been successfully validated and accepted in hPSCreg are now offered the possibility to publish the generation and characterisation of their cell line as a Lab Resource article. Lab Resource articles will undergo fast-track editorial review at Stem Cell Research and upon acceptance they will be published online with their own citable DOI. Furthermore, hPSCreg records and Lab Resource articles will be cross-linked so that both resources will be readily available from both platforms.
Publish registered cell lines in Stem Cell Research will provide registrants with immediate visibility and dissemination within the community for their newly generated cell lines.
Lab Resource articles in Stem Cell Research are Gold Open Access publications. Please note that the Open Access fee of $500 to publish Lab Resource articles in Stem Cell Research will be fully waived for all those authors submitting their articles before 31st December 2015.

If you have already registered a line in hPSCreg and you are interested in publishing it as a Lab Resource article, either contact hPSCreg for a Lab Resource pre-filled submission format or visit the Lab Resource Submit website http://www.journals.elsevier.com/stem-cell-research/lab-resources/labresource-submit/ where you can fill a blank template (please mention that the line has been registered in hPSCreg).
