Interdisciplinary Open Access Journal Launched

Wiley has launched the interdisciplinary Open Access journal Natural Sciences. The journal was initiated in context of Projekt DEAL. It fully embraces open research principles and covers physics, chemistry, biology and their interfaces, as well as seminal works from related fields such as engineering and biomedical research.

Gerard Meijer (FHI) will serve as one of the Chief Editors of Natural Sciences and Bretislav Friedrich (FHI) takes over the function as Executive Editor.

The first issue will be published in January 2021.

Publish Open Access with Nature

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.
