The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is accepting applications and nominations for the next editor-in-chief of the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.

MCP is a gold open-access journal that fosters the development and applications of proteomics in both basic and translational research by publishing research at the forefront of proteomics, protein synthesis and bioinformatics. 

Alma Burlingame of the University of California, San Francisco, who was the founding deputy editor of the journal and only its second editor-in-chief, will step down at the end of the year after more than two decades of service.

“Under Al’s leadership, MCP has become known for setting the standards in the field,” Isabel Casas, the ASBMB’s publications director said. “Readers of the journal trust that the papers it publishes have been through rigorous layers of review, and they appreciate the journal’s commitment to reproducibility and making new tools accessible to the community.”

Stephen Miller, the society’s executive director and veteran staff member, said the next editor-in-chief will have the opportunity to grow and advance the journal. “MCP is the preeminent open-access journal dedicated to proteomics, and we are excited for the next editor-in-chief to provide visionary strategic direction that continuously improves the journal’s already very strong reputation,” Miller said.
