AAAS Announces New Science Partner Journal E. at

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is proud to announce the launch of the new Science Partner Journal Energy Material Advances, published in partnership with the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT).

Energy Material Advances is an interdisciplinary journal that provides an advanced platform for investigations and research in the fields of materials, energy, environmental, photoelectrics, electromechanics and mechanics, as well as physics, chemistry and biology. The scope will cover multiple areas, from cutting edge materials to energy sciences, with theoretical, technological and engineering aspects explored. The journal will publish research articles, reviews, short messages, perspectives and editorials.

Feng Wu, academics from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the International Eurasian Academy of Sciences, and the Asia Pacific Academy of Materials, and chief professor of energy and environmental materials at BIT, and Jun Liu, the Washington Research Foundation’s Chair of Clean Energy Innovation, and both the The Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Campbell Chair Professor of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Washington will serve as editors-in-chief of Energy Material Advances.

Energy Material Advances is currently open for submission and is published under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). Two more BIT Science Partner Journal titles will appear this year. Cyborg and Bionic Systems is currently open for submissions and Space: Science & Technology will launch later this year.

“Currently, energy science and technology is a new hotspot in scientific and industrial development.” said Professor Feng Wu, editor-in-chief of the magazine. “Energy Material Advances focuses on the latest developments in energy materials and provides a platform that is open to collaborative innovation for scientists in the field,” continued Wu. “We are pleased to make relentless efforts to broaden international academic exchange, in-depth research and exploration, and exchange information more efficiently so that this journal can promote and experience the bright future of new energy materials.”

“We are delighted that the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), with the support and help of AAAS, has launched the international journal Energy Material Advances,” said Professor Jun Zhang, academic at the Chinese Academy of Engineering and president of the university. “As an important pillar for global economic development, energy and materials science is the essential basis for high-tech progress in various subject areas and is also one of the dominant disciplines at our university,” continued Zhang. “The creation and development of this journal will provide an excellent academic exchange platform for relevant scholars around the world to share the latest research in the field and to disseminate the latest advances and trends.”

“The Science Partner Journal program is pleased to welcome three new journals with another high-level partner, the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT),” said Bill Moran, editor of the Science family of journals at AAAS. “Energy Material Advances will cover a broad spectrum of research focused on cutting edge areas that will help improve our knowledge and practice of critical energy and materials science. Under Feng Wu’s direction and with BIT’s guidance and collaboration, we are confident that the magazine will excel. “

New titles participating in the Science Partner Journal program will be published regularly and participation in the program will be limited to English-language publications. AAAS is actively looking for new partners in all scientific disciplines. The organizations participating in the Science Partner Journal program are editorially independent and responsible for the content published in each journal. Partner organizations are responsible for setting up editorial boards that are committed to best practices in peer review and authoring services.
