ICE Publishing, the publishing division of the Institution of Civil Engineers, announced the launch of a new flagship journal series, ICE Science. ICE Science will publish information at the intersection of many scientific disciplines, and aims to provide a cross-fertilization of ideas in the areas of materials science, biomaterials, nanotechnology and energy.
ICE Science will launch with three full-color, bimonthly journals, and is offering free online access to all published content throughout 2011 and 2012, providing researchers with the opportunity to be widely read and cited. Authors are also now able to submit articles to the journal editors.
Nanomaterials and Energy will be the first journal to be launched in the ICE Science collection, in January 2012. The journal will bring together research from scientists and engineers working at the juncture of nanomaterials and energy. Emerging Materials Research launches in February 2012 and brings new insight to the field of materials science. Bioinspired, Biomimetic and Nanobiomaterials brings together ideas from the most promising area of research within the field of biological materials science and engineering and likewise launches in February 2012.
