Nature Communications invites submissions of original research papers in all areas of the natural sciences. This multidisciplinary, online-only journal from Nature Publishing Group (NPG) will publish its first articles in April 2010. The journal website is now live at

The scope of Nature Communications reflects NPG’s core strengths in the biological, chemical and physical sciences. This includes areas in which Nature research journals publish the most outstanding community-focused research papers, and also areas like high-energy physics, astronomy, palaeontology and developmental biology, that aren’t represented by a dedicated Nature research journal. The editors particularly welcome submissions from cross-disciplinary fields, such as physical chemistry and mathematical biology.

The Nature Communications editorial team will be based in NPG’s London office, and editorial enquiries should be sent to: [email protected].
