About Nature Research:

Nature Research is here to serve the research community by publishing its most significant discoveries—findings that advance knowledge and address some of the greatest challenges that we face as a society today.

Our journals publish not only primary research but also reviews, critical comment, news and analysis.

From Nature—the leading international weekly journal of science first published in 1869—to selective subject-specific subscription journals including Nature Genetics and Nature Physics and broad open-access journals such as Nature Communications and Scientific Reports, there is a home for your research within our family of journals.

We’re committed to providing more options for authors in the open access arena too.

The Communications journals, a group of high-quality, selective, open access multidisciplinary journals, published their first articles in 2018.

Our Nature Reviews titles showcase authoritative, accessible and significant review content.

High-quality graphics and enhanced content provide context and explanation, whatever your discipline.


Frontiers in Genetics: a journal

Journal publishing peer-reviewed research on genes and genomes relating to all the domains of life, from humans to plants to livestock and other model organisms.

Areas include: How genes/genomes relate to phenotypes and human pathophysiology. Technological and analytical developments of genomic data. Gene flow among species and populations. Interactions between environment and organisms. Molecular and cellular genetics. Societal implications.

Harvard Medical School: HMX

They say:

“HMX courses have been envisioned and created by a highly skilled interdisciplinary team of Harvard Medical School educators and creative professionals—each an expert in his or her own field. Together we craft curricula with integrated multimedia elements and didactic visuals focused on bringing medical concepts to life via real-world and clinical applications.

“We apply the science of learning and best practices in biomedical visualization to guide the development of our courses. Our goal is to help learners focus on the understanding and application of key scientific principles.

“Whether you’re catching up or getting ahead—or just looking for a new perspective on core medical concepts—we hope you’ll join us for HMX courses.”
