ICE Publishing has launched a major new flagship journal series, ICE Science, to drive forward knowledge in the areas of materials science, biomaterials, nanotechnology and energy.
The collection aims to bring together communities that traditionally work in silos to ensure important discoveries and applications are accessible to all those in the field, the ICE said.
ICE Publishing commissioning editor Victoria Rae said: “At the ICE we have enormous experience of publishing journals in the field of civil engineering, but increasingly science crosses discipline boundaries.
“It is at the interface of traditional subject areas that we believe the next round of major breakthroughs will come and we’re looking forward to bringing these new findings to the attention of the scientific community through the ICE Science journals.”
ICE Science will launch with three full-colour, bimonthly journals and is offering free online access to all published content throughout 2011 and 2012. Authors can now submit articles to the journal editors.
Nanomaterials and Energy will be the first journal to be launched in the ICE Science collection, in January 2012. Emerging Materials Research and Bioinspired, Biomimetic and Nanobiomaterials will launch in February 2012.
