The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the nonprofit publisher of the Science family of journals, is pleased to announce that the first journal in its Science Partner Journal program will be Research, the official journal of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) in 2018. Research will be distributed by AAAS in association with Science and Technology Review Publishing House, the official publishing house of CAST.
Research will be a wide-ranging interdisciplinary journal that aims to publish original peer-reviewed content reflecting new and innovative discoveries and important issues in engineering and applied sciences. Tianhong Cui, Ph.D., Distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota, will be the journal's Editor-in-Chief (International).
The editorial office for Research will open for submissions in March 2018 and the journal will officially launch in June 2018. Research will publish under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY), meaning that content will be freely available to all readers upon publication. Additional information about the journal, prior to the Research website going live and opening for submissions, will be available on the Science Partner Journal program homepage: https://spj.sciencemag.org/research/.
"The aim in building Research is to harness the publishing resources of AAAS to create vibrant exchange between Chinese and international scientists," said Changle Xiang, Executive Secretary of CAST.
"We aim to publish high-quality research in multidisciplinary areas from around the world. We look forward to closely working with colleagues in many different countries to better serve research communities everywhere," said Tianhong Cui.
