NPG launches Two New Websites: Nature Reports Climate Change and Nature Reports Stem Cells
From Knowledgespeak (June 12)
Scientific publisher Nature Publishing Group (NPG), UK, has announced the launch of two new websites - Nature Reports Climate Change and Nature Reports Stem Cells. The Nature Reports sites highlight topical science issues by providing thorough investigative reporting based on peer-reviewed, primary research.
The new websites will report ‘the science behind the news, the news behind the science,’ and explore the social, political and economic implications of the highlighted topic. Users of all levels of expertise, from scientists, journalists and students, to members of the general public, can access the content, a vast majority of which is freely available. Over the coming months, both Nature Reports: Stem Cells and Nature Reports Climate Change hope to develop further with increased community interactions, resources and media.
The topics for discussion in the Nature Reports series were chosen based on the most popular search terms run on Nature.com in 2006. The first in the series- Nature Reports Avian Flu- was launched in March 2007.
