Over the last decade, The Ukrainian Biochemical Journal (UBJ) has taken a number of measures that have allowed it to leave its narrowly domestic past behind and come a step closer to the international community of scientific publications. In the first phase of the UBJ transformation the journal was made English-lingual only, its manuscript handling process was somewhat streamlined, and a brand-new website for the journal was developed. The range of international databases, in which the UBJ was listed, was also significantly extended. The second phase of the UBJ upgrade began in October 2018, when the journal received a grant from the Regional Cooperation for Health, Science and Technology (RECOOP) to implement the project “Scientific communication of RECOOP partners using the UBJ platform”. The project’s objectives include raising the journal’s quality level to international standards, globalizing it, and making it a reliable platform for the RECOOP publishing activity in Eastern Europe by promoting articles within the scope of RECOOP research strategy.
