THE BREAST JOURNAL
Elsevier made changes to the production of The Breast journal from January 1 2020 (see announcement below). The hard copy journal is no longer published, and the online journal is now open access. We no longer need to charge a subscription for journal access, as it can be accessed for free online. As part of our ongoing arrangements with Elsevier, ASBD members will receive a 30% discount on the article publishing charge (APC) listed below. ASBD will still publish a selection of submitted abstracts from our Scientific Meetings in The Breast free of charge.
Digital copies of THE BREAST JOURNAL are available on our site.
