Free Computational Biology publishing this November! Our latest 10th birthday celebration

In 2022 we are celebrating a decade of PeerJ. Launched in June 2012, PeerJ is now 10 years old! We are launching a number of celebratory promotions – or birthday presents! – this year to share our thanks and appreciation to our users who have made the last decade possible.

Our latest celebration is free publishing for Computational Biology research for the first 10 days of November.

New Computational Biology articles submitted to any PeerJ journal between November 1st and November 10th will automatically receive an Article Processing Charge (APC) waiver – just select Computational Biology as a subject when you submit.

Computational Biology researchers have always been a strong community at PeerJ. At the time of writing, 758 articles have been published with the subject tag, including articles #1 and #2! We want as many computational biologists to benefit from this offer, so please share this announcement with your network:

One of many birthday celebrations

We’re continuing to announce new celebrations for our 10th birthday, so keep an eye out on the blog, follow us on Twitter or sign up for email alerts to be the first to find out. Our subject and topic free publishing months have so far seen 170 submissions, and we’ve announced 10 winners of #MyFavouritePeerJPaper and #OAadvocate prizedraws.


The waiver is only for the APC; other charges may still apply (e.g. for articles longer than 40 typeset pages); author services (copy-editing, video and graphical abstracts) are not included. Submissions that are started but not fully submitted, and manuscripts submitted outside of this period, are not eligible. Submissions must be completed before midnight (PST) on November 10th, 2022. Articles submitted before the promotion period cannot be withdrawn and then resubmitted to receive the waiver. To receive the APC waiver you must select Computational Biology as a subject when submitting. If you have any questions please contact the PeerJ Communities Team.
