Thanks to the support of the Centre for Society and the Life Sciences, Radboud University, the Netherlands and Economic and Social Research Council, Genomics Network, UK, the publication costs for Life Sciences, Society and Policy are currently fully covered so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge.

Aims and scope

Life Sciences, Society and Policy is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal devoted to fostering responsible innovation and sustainable development by providing an academic forum for engaged scholarship, interdisciplinary research, critical reflection and informed discussion concerning the ethical, social and legal dimensions of the life sciences, resulting in insights, tools and recommendations for civil society, policy, industry and education. Its aim is to analyze and assess the interrelatedness of emerging life sciences, society and policy.

Before transferring to SpringerOpen, Life Sciences, Society and Policy was known as Genomics, Society and Policy.

The journal covers a broad area of research and reflection, probing and questioning the meaning of new forms of knowledge concerning human beings, animals, plants and the environment. As these issues are addressed from a truly international and global perspective, the journal welcomes submissions from all countries around the globe on a broad range of subjects, ranging from normative or theoretical reflections up to quantitative or qualitative research and case studies and is keen on publishing themed sections as well.
