AAAS Announces New Science Partner Journal, Energy Material Advances

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 collaboration 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, photoelectric, electromechanical and mechanical sciences, as well as physics, chemistry and biology. The scope will cover several areas, from the latest material to energy science, examining theoretical, technological and engineering aspects. The journal will publish research articles, reviews, short messages, perspectives and editorials.

Feng Wu, academic at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Eurasian International Academy of Sciences, and Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, and Chief Professor of Energy and Environmental Materials at BIT, and Jun Liu, Washington Research Foundation’s Chair of Clean Energy Innovation, and both the Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Campbell Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Washington will serve as editors-in-chief for Advances in Energy Materials.

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

“Currently, energy sciences and technologies have become a new hotspot in scientific and industrial development.” said Professor Feng Wu, editor-in-chief of the magazine. “Energy Material Advances focuses on the cutting edge of energy materials and provides a platform that scientists in the field are open to collaborative innovation with,” continued Wu. “We are pleased to make relentless efforts to broaden international academic exchange, research and exploration, and exchange information more efficiently, so that this journal can promote and witness the bright future of new energy materials.”

“We are very pleased that the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), with the support and assistance of AAAS, 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 fields and one of the most important disciplines of our university,” continued Zhang. “The creation and development of this journal provides relevant scientists around the world with an excellent platform for academic exchange to share the latest research in this field and to disseminate the latest advances and trends.”

“The Science Partner Journal program is pleased to welcome three new journals with another top tier partner, the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT),” said Bill Moran, editor of the science journal family at AAAS. “Energy Material Advances will cover a wide range of research in the cutting edge areas that will help advance our knowledge and implementation of critical energy and materials science. Led by Feng Wu and under the guidance and collaboration of BIT we’re confident that the Journal will excel. “

New titles participating in the Science Partner Journal program will be published regularly and participation in the program will be maintained for English language publications. AAAS is actively looking for new partners in various scientific disciplines. 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 teams that advocate best practices in peer review and authoring services.
