John Wiley and Sons Inc. has announced the launch of its new premier open access journal, Natural Sciences. The journal, which fully embraces open research principles, is one of the mutual initiatives agreed to by Projekt DEAL and Wiley.
Helmed by leading scientists in the fields of biology, chemistry and physics, the journal publishes top-tier research from the global community spanning these subjects and their interfaces, as well as related fields such as engineering and biomedical research. Its strong focus on interdisciplinarity is reflected by the publication of highlight articles, which will put the research articles into context for researchers from adjacent fields.
Marianne Bronner, Gerard Meijer and Vivian W.-W. Yam will serve as Chief Editors of Natural Sciences. They will be reinforced by Bretislav Friedrich in his function as Executive Editor. Being scientists first and foremost, they understand the importance of openly sharing and publishing research that embraces diversity and carries a global perspective in advancing scientific knowledge.
The global Editorial Board welcomes researchers to submit original research articles to Natural Sciences from disciplines encompassing biology, chemistry and physics. Natural Sciences embraces innovative open research principles, including open and transparent peer review and decision-making processes, that accelerate the pace of discovery and make scientific research results easily accessible to all.
In 2019, Wiley published 35,000 open access articles, and that number is expected to grow significantly by the end of 2020. The company previously announced its collaboration with project DeepGreen to distribute research published under the Wiley/Projekt DEAL to open access repositories in Germany.
