Nature Communications is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Nature Publishing Group since 2010. The editor in chief is Lesley Anson. It is multidisciplinary in scope, with coverage that includes all topics in physics, chemistry, and biology. The online-only journal is specifically designed to fill in gaps for research articles where there is no dedicated journal available in the Nature Publishing Group journals. For example coverage of this journal includes developmental biology, plant sciences, microbiology, ecology and evolution, palaeontology and astronomy. Cross-disciplinary research such as biophysics, bioengineering, chemical physics and environmental science, are also published. However, all cross-disciplinary works are considered for publication.
Stronger westerly winds in the Southern Ocean could be the cause of a sudden rise in atmospheric CO2 and temperatures in a period of less than 100 years about 16,000 years ago, according to a study published in Nature Communications.
Current strategies using satellite data limit the accuracy of space-based estimates of how aerosols brighten clouds
All cloud liquid drops and ice crystals originate on small particles called aerosols. Therefore, clouds can be sensitive – or susceptible – to particle variations in space and time that affect cloud characteristics such ...
In a new study, researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have determined that electrons in some oxides can experience an "unconventional slowing down" of their response to a light ...
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have found a nanobody that holds promise to advance targeted therapies for a number of neurological diseases and cancer.
Scientists have discovered fresh insights into the metallic core at the centre of our planet.
Take a glass thread a thousand times thinner than a human hair. Use it as a wire between two metals. Hit it with a laser pulse that lasts a millionth of a billionth of a second.
Our bodies consist of many different kinds of cells, each with their own role. The Japanese scientist Shinya Yamanaka had made earlier the discovery, earning the Nobel Prize in 2012, that cells from adult skin can be converted ...
The brain requires surprisingly little energy to adapt to the environment to learn, make ambiguous recognitions, have high recognition ability and intelligence, and perform complex information processing.
The evolution of Earth's first animals more than 500 million years ago caused global warming, new research shows.
Scientists at the University of Warwick have created a new way to view proteins that are inside human cells.
