We are pleased to announce that the Bone Research Society (BRS) has now signed an agreement with Frontiers in Bone Research (a specialty section of Frontiers in Endocrinology) to act as the Society's official journal. The Chief Editor is Professor Jon Tobias (Bristol). You can find the journal here.

BRS members will benefit from substantial subsidies towards the cost of publication in FiBR. The discounted publication costs, which are available until the end of 2013 to corresponding authors who are BRS members of at least one year's standing, are summarised below.
