Nature Food: Crossing the disciplines of food research
Nature Food launched in January 2020, publishing research and commentary on all aspects of food production, processing, distribution and consumption that relate to the broader sustainability agenda. The COVID-19 pandemic has, according to Chief Editor Anne Mullen, drawn issues of food supply chain resilience and food security sharply into focus this year, and may well be an impetus for a global food system transformation.
Nature Aging: Bringing unity to the field of aging
We launched Nature Aging in January 2021 to fill a gap in the publishing landscape, as until then there wasn’t a selective high-profile journal dedicated to the field of aging with such a broad scope.
Nature Computational Science: Championing computational work across multiple disciplines
Our goal with Nature Computational Science has been to focus on the impressive computational work being developed across multiple disciplines: we have envisioned the journal being a dedicated home for this work, where researchers from different domains can learn from each other in order to advance science.
Nature Reviews Physics off to a strong start
August 2019 | The Nature Reviews Physics journal was launched in January this year and has been off to a strong start with contributions from well-known authors in the field. Its first issue featured a comment by the American theoretical physicist and Nobel prize winner Frank Wilczek titled “The evolving unity of physics” in which he discusses the synergy between the different fields of physics. March and April followed with two focus issues on nuclear power and the future of particle accelerators while the May issue featured an article about the representation of women in physics.
Nature Reviews Methods Primers: Bridging gaps between disciplinary silos
Nature Reviews Methods Primers launched in January 2021 to help researchers understand the methods they’re using - how they work, how to use them, and what to do with the data.
Launch of Nature Machine Intelligence
August 2019 | The Nature Machine Intelligence journal was launched in January this year and is already setting new standards for transparency and reproducibility of research findings in the field of machine intelligence. Together with Nature Methods and Nature Biotechnology, Nature Machine Intelligence launched a trial in partnership with Code Ocean which enables authors to share fully-functional and executable code accompanying their articles and making it easier to review the code and replicate the results.
Nature Ecology & Evolution: Promoting the Importance of Biodiversity to the Wider World
July 2018 | Over a series of articles, we’ll be exploring the role Springer Nature Research Journals are playing in tackling specific Sustainable Development Goals, but also how their diverse natural science and social science remit is seeing them address the much broader challenges that make up the programme. In this interview, find out how the broad range of fundamental research covered in Nature Ecology & Evolution impacts almost every one of Springer Nature's Grand Challenges goals, with biodiversity and the global consequences of its depletion connecting all of the journal’s subject areas.
Nature Astronomy, Two Years On: A Retrospective
March 2019 | We asked May Chiao, Chief Editor of Nature Astronomy, to reflect on the two years since launch of the new journal, and the reasons for doing so. May also shares insights in to trends and growing research she's seeing from the community.
