Science Announces Two New High-Impact Research Journals

What do immunology and robotics have in common? They've inspired new online journals from AAAS: Science Immunology and Science Robotics. Both will launch this year.


Science Immunology facilitates understanding of the immune system by showcasing advances in the expanding field of immunology. The journal draws from studies in all organisms and model systems, including humans, and offers a generous selection of articles on cancer immunology.

Science Robotics promotes advances in research and development of robotics by providing a central forum for the most exciting new discoveries. The journal covers robotics and associated advances in materials research, artificial intelligence, sensors, and human-machine interaction. Environments range from the human body to the factory, and from sea to space.

Each journal is expected to publish upwards of 150 original, peer-reviewed research articles per year, all with the same intellectual rigor found in Science itself.
