Life science research is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary in nature, and therefore there is a need for a journal that will support researchers, covering the latest thinking and newest concepts. Emerging Topics in Life Sciences is a new journal that fulfils this need, covering rapidly-moving areas of life science research, and providing a link between the established record and the latest research. Here, Colin Kleanthous, the Editor-in-Chief, provides an introduction to the journal, its aims and scope, and highlights the first featured topics.
