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.
