How long will we live? How can we age in a healthy, fulfilling way? What are the effects of loneliness or stress on the passing of time? This journal offers an interdisciplinary look at old age, with scientific articles, news and reflections that address the topic from multiple perspectives. The journal mainly focuses on the field of health sciences, with studies related, for example, to the biological bases of ageing or the relationship between certain diseases and old age. At the same time, it also fuels debate on issues related to the social sciences, such as the ageing of society in Japan, the impact of using robots to improve the lives of older people, or the challenges faced by older LGBTQ+ people.
The journal publishes articles, reviews, comment, news and opinions aimed at people interested in computational science in the broadest sense. Indeed, it covers a wide variety of topics ranging from bioinformatics to geoinformatics and computational physics. If this is the first time you have heard of Nature Computational Science, we recommend that you check out the collection of articles that the editorial team prepared for the journal's first anniversary. This collection presents, for example, work on the role of technology in facing the challenges posed by COVID-19, in addition to articles that delve into the concept of the digital twin, a virtual representation or replica of a real object, product or system to evaluate it or predict future scenarios.
This journal provides new and veteran researchers with information on research methods and techniques in the physical and life sciences. In addition to news and reviews, there are fact sheets written by researchers from around the world which provide a broad and complete overview of a specific method. Each sheet includes a general introduction to the method, the guidelines for analysing and correctly interpreting the results, its applications and the aspects that must be taken into account to publish the data in an open format and such that they can be reproduced and reused. Recent articles include "Nanodelivery of nucleic acids" and "In vivo hypermutation and continuous evolution".
In addition to the three newest journals, if you go to the Library search engine or the Nature Complete platform you can retrieve articles from the iconic Nature group, including about 50 research and review journals, and other academic publications associated with the group.
