Nature Catalysis will bring together researchers from across all chemistry and related fields, publishing work on homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysts, incorporating both fundamental and applied studies. The journal will have a particular interest in applied work that advances our knowledge and informs the development of sustainable industries and processes.
As such, Nature Catalysis will provide essential coverage of the science and business of catalysis research, creating a unique journal for scientists, engineers and researchers in academia and industry.
In addition to fulfilling a clear community need, this new journal further demonstrates Nature Research's commitment to publishing applied research in support of societal needs and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, such as affordable and clean energy, industry innovation and infrastructure, responsible consumption and production.
Like all Nature-branded journals, Nature Catalysis will be characterized by a dedicated team of professional editors, a fair and rigorous peer-review process, high standards of copy-editing and production, swift publication, and editorial independence. In addition to peer-reviewed scholarly articles, the high quality front-half content for which Nature-branded journals are known – including commentaries, editorials and discussion pieces – provides a forum to engage researchers from all areas of catalysis.
