Research findings and developments articles are short (usually around 500 words) and cover new research findings published in non-ASBMB journals and other developments of interest to those in the biochemistry and molecular biology community.
From the journals contributions are brief summaries (200-300 words) of multiple articles in our journals, usually the Journal of Lipid Research or Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.
Lipid news articles are usually around 500 words and solicited by ASBMB Lipid Research Divison leaders. They come in two formats. The narrative format highlights new, important advances in lipid research of interest to those outside of the field. The Q&A format highlights the important, new work of a single researcher.
