The Max Planck Society has established a new transformative open access agreement with Nature which allows corresponding Max Planck authors to publish open access in Nature and other Nature Research journals (except Nature Review journals) under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY); under the agreement, the article processing charges will be paid centrally by the MPS.
It also covers read access to all Nature journals (incl. new launches).
The agreement will be in effect from January 1, 2021. Articles published online after January 1, 2021 are eligible – relevant is the online publication date.

Now the Nature fully open access journals are part of Project DEAL. The costs for Nature Communications, Scientific Reports, npj Computational Materials and others will be directly and fully funded via DEAL as of 1 August 2020.
The Project DEAL, a nationwide open access agreement, with Springer Nature started in January 2020. It allows authors to publish open access in nearly all Springer hybrid journals and it also covers read access to all Springer journals.
From now on we have access to the following new SpringerNature journals:
Nature Nano Workshop
How Nature Indexing Helps You Find Nanotechnology Literature and Data Efficiently
Tuesday, 13 March 2018 – 11 am Tuesday, 20 March 2018 – 11 am
Building A, Library
nano.nature.com known as Nano was launched on 15 June 2016 as a non-journal type product under the Nature Research portfolio. It aims to provide highly indexed and structured information related to nanotechnology, including materials, properties, applications and preparation methods, derived from peer-reviewed journals at the article level and in manually curated nanomaterial summaries that compile data from multiple sources.
This talk will illustrate how Nano can aid nanotechnology research communities to obtain fast and precise insights into the wealth of nanotechnology based scholarly knowledge via use case scenarios and provide the latest developments.

If you wish to attend please register by contacting the library.
The trial phase for Nature Nano will be extended by 2 months and ends on 31 March 2018.
Nano is a database providing access to nanoscience data and summaries coming from patents and nano-related journals across publishers.
