The proceedings of the OCC Workshop are published in Redox Experimental Medicine

Redox Experimental Medicine is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal publishing redox research that advances our understanding of the effect of redox processes on human health and disease.

Aberration in redox processes has a profound impact on the normal physiology of humans, with an implication in many diseases. Redox Experimental Medicine will serve as an essential publication for the international scientific community to translate experimental knowledge to redox-based preventive and/or therapeutic interventions, with a view to advancing health. The journal publishes basic and translational articles which have potential therapeutic relevance, as well as pre-clinical and clinical studies.

Bioscientifica is sponsoring the Article Publication Charge until the end of 2023; as such authors can currently publish completely free of charge.
