Journal partnership

After a partnership of ten years, the Society's contract with Springer Science+Business Media has expired. After much discussion and lengthy consideration, the Society's Board of Directors now believes the time is right for a new publishing model to be adopted that better represents the interests of our membership, provides added value to members, appropriately balances benefits and risks, and allows the Society greater editorial and copyright control.

The Metabolomics Society is proud of its association with Springer's Metabolomics journal. Past and present members of the Metabolomics editorial board, and in particular the editor-in-chief, have been supporters of the Society since its inception, and we are sure they will continue to push forward the ideals of rigorous scientific endeavour to which we all aspire. We deeply appreciate their contributions.

The Society's Board of Directors is currently reviewing proposals from candidate publishing houses.  After considering opinions expressed by the membership, we hope to launch the new Society journal in the near future. We hope that all our members will enthusiastically embrace this new endeavour.
