Advancing Life Sciences R&D: SLAS Discovery reports how scientists develop and utilize novel technologies and/or approaches to provide and characterize chemical and biological tools to understand and treat human disease.

SLAS Discovery is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on drug discovery sciences with a strong record of scientific rigor and impact. SLAS Discovery is an official journal of SLAS.

Come Transform Research with SLAS: SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology readers, authors, editors and reviewers are academic, commercial and government researchers, scientists and engineers who conduct research, and develop and implement new technologies. Together, these journals address the full spectrum of issues that are mission-critical to this important audience, enabling research teams to gain scientific insights; increase productivity; elevate data quality; reduce process cycle times; and enable research and development that otherwise would be impossible.

SLAS Discovery is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and was published previously (1996-2016) as the Journal of Biomolecular Screening (JBS).

Advancing Life Sciences R&D: SLAS Discovery reports how scientists develop and utilize novel technologies and/or approaches to provide and characterize chemical and biological tools to understand and treat human disease.

SLAS Discovery is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes scientific reports that enable and improve target validation, evaluate current drug discovery technologies, provide novel research tools, and incorporate research approaches that enhance depth of knowledge and drug discovery success.

SLAS Discovery emphasizes scientific and technical advances in target identification/validation (including chemical probes, RNA silencing, gene editing technologies); biomarker discovery; assay development; virtual, medium- or high-throughput screening (biochemical and biological, biophysical, phenotypic, toxicological, ADME); lead generation/optimization; chemical biology; and informatics (data analysis, image analysis, statistics, bio- and chemo-informatics). Review articles on target biology, new paradigms in drug discovery and advances in drug discovery technologies.

SLAS Discovery is of particular interest to those involved in analytical chemistry, applied microbiology, automation, biochemistry, bioengineering, biomedical optics, biotechnology, bioinformatics, cell biology, DNA science and technology, genetics, information technology, medicinal chemistry, molecular biology, natural products chemistry, organic chemistry, pharmacology, spectroscopy, and toxicology.
