Recognising inspirational women in science
We are extremely proud to announce that the 2021 Nature Research Awards for Inspiring Women in Science which are now open for application!
Nature Sustainability: Promoting Interdisciplinary Research to Advance Global Sustainability
September 2018 | The newest Nature Research journal, Nature Sustainability, blends natural, social and engineering research fields to support new policies and deliver actionable solutions to sustainability challenges. chief Editor, Monica Contestabile, talks to us about how the journal intersects with almost every one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular interest in sustainable cities and sustainable food systems.
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.
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 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.
More than the sum of the parts
In this blog post, the chief editors of the two journals explain how the two titles complement each other. What sets the journals apart?
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 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.
Nature Metabolism journal shows strong track record
August 2019 | The Nature Metabolism journal started publishing only six months ago but has already shown a strong track record of promising research papers. One example is a paper published in July, showing that a ketogenic diet, a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates, promotes the growth of lymph vessels in mice and might lead to substantial reductions in lymphedema which is a huge problem in clinics.
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.
