About the Journal

Antibody Reports (eISSN 2624-8557) is an international, academic open-access online journal edited by the "Geneva Antibody Facility". It is dedicated to focusing on the technical and experimental validation of recombinant antibodies. Our primary goal is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental results, thereby generating better and more reproducible data in a collaborative manner and promoting the utilization of recombinant antibodies.

Focus and Scope

Antibody Reports (ISSN 2624-8557) focuses on experimental validation of recombinant antibodies. The general aim is to define the specificity of an antibody and which detection techniques it is compatible with. Negative results, when including an adequate positive control, are also valuable. We encourage scientists to publish their experimental results in as much detail as possible, with the philosophy of "one antigen, one technique, one paper".
