The Journal of Lipid Research


We are excited to announce that JLR will be moving to a new manuscript submission system in April. To prepare for this move, no new submissions will be accepted from 6:30 PM EDT Thursday, April 25, through Monday, April 29. JLR expects to resume accepting new submissions by 8:00 AM EDT Tuesday, April 30.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this very important transition.


Some important points to keep in mind:

  • JLR will function on two systems in tandem for a few months.
  • The old URL for the submission site ( will redirect to the new system's URL.
  • Authors/Reviewers will continue to use the current (BenchPress) system,, for submitting and reviewing revised manuscripts (or new submitted prior to the shutdown). IMPORTANT: Authors should plan to complete their new submissions by 6:30 PM EDT Thursday, April 25.
  • Authors/Reviewers will use the new (eJournalPress) system for all NEW and RESUBMITTED manuscripts beginning April 30.
  • Reviewers MUST follow the instructions in the email notification for each assignment. The instructions for each assignment will take you to the right system for the paper assigned.

To avoid duplicate profile accounts, if you already have an existing profile in our current (BenchPress) system, please use the email address associated with that account to login to the new (eJournalPress) system for the first time by using the "Forgot your password?" link on the login screen. You can also log in using an ORCID.

Please contact with any questions.


Please check to see if you are already registered with a journal that uses the Bench Press system. Bench>Press Journals

If you are registered with another Bench>Press journal, use THE SAME login information here. It is important NOT to create a duplicate account with another email address.

If you are completely new to the system, you will need to create a new account.
