Wiley Launches Premium Open Access Journal Advanced Science
John Wiley and Sons, Inc., today announced the launch of Advanced Science, a new premium, interdisciplinary open access journal. Advanced Science publishes cutting-edge research, selected through a rigorous and fair reviewing process and is presented using the highest quality production standards to create a premium open access journal. “Top science enjoying maximum accessibility” is the motto of this vibrant and innovative research publication.
Advanced Science is the latest addition to Wiley’s portfolio of Advanced Materials journals and benefits from relationships with widely respected titles including, Advanced Materials, Advanced Energy Materials and Small. Advanced Science covers fundamental and applied research in materials science, physics and chemistry, medical and life sciences, as well as engineering.
“An experienced, international editorial team will run the journal in our best in-house editorial tradition, striving to make Advanced Science the journal of choice for top-quality open access publications,” commented Dr. Kirsten Severing, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Science. “This new sister journal is particularly aimed at those authors mandated to publish in open-access-only journals but still keen to enjoy the Advanced Materials experience,” added Dr. Peter Gregory, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Materials.
Advanced Science exemplifies the highest quality of interdisciplinary publishing in terms of coverage, quality, speed, international outlook, and services to authors. In contrast to the other Advanced Materials journals, Advanced Science will publish under the fully open access (CC-BY) license. The best science with maximum accessibility will be the result.
The launch of Advanced Science was celebrated at the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston in December 2014, where Prof. Ali Khademhosseini, of Harvard University, said, “Advanced Science provides a forum to represent the latest breakthrough discoveries and innovations for a broad range of disciplines.” At the meeting Prof Thomas Anthopoulos, of Imperial College London also commented, “I am sure that the combination of a great editorial team and an outstanding editorial board will help Advanced Science become a leading journal within a very short period of time.” Both Prof Ali Khademhosseini and Prof Thomas Anthopoulos are on the Executive Advisory Board of Advanced Science.
