The National Academy of Sciences announces the launch of a new open access journal, PNAS Nexus, in Partnership with Oxford University Press. PNAS Nexus will be highly selective and will publish innovative and multi-, trans-, and interdisciplinary work across the biological, physical, and social sciences, particularly encompassing engineering and health sciences.
“I believe this new journal creates a great opportunity for rapid review and publication of new findings across several key scientific disciplines. I look forward to working with OUP and the new Editorial Board on this exciting open access platform.”– Editor-in-Chief Karen Nelson
PNAS Nexus will begin considering new submissions in late summer 2021. In early 2022, the journal will publish its first issue. PNAS Nexus anticipates playing a key role in rapidly disseminating research findings in a broad range of fields, with an emphasis on studies which span multiple disciplines. NAS states that the journal will provide researchers an open access platform that encourages transparency and speed in the publication of cutting-edge research.
OUP is the largest university press publisher of open access research and PNAS is one of the world’s most widely cited and comprehensive multidisciplinary scientific journals, publishing more than 3,500 research papers annually. Together, they hope to ensure that important research published in PNAS Nexus reaches the widest possible audience.
