Rice Science, formerly Chinese Rice Research Newsletter, is an international quarterly journal. The primary purpose of this journal is to introduce the advancements and achievements in rice sciences in China to the world. Rice Science encourages submissions from outside China, to strengthen the communication of rice scientists from China and other countries, and to contribute to the safety of food supply in the world.
Rice Science accepts contributions on all aspects of rice sciences: original research papers, reviews, as well as short communications. Topics covered include: breeding and genetics, biotechnology, germplasm resources, pest management, physiology, soil and fertilizer management, ecology, cereal chemistry and post-harvest processing.
Rice Science is sponsored by China’s National Rice Research Institute in cooperation with the State Key Laboratory of Rice Biology and the Chinese National Rice Improvement Center.
Almost half the world depends on rice as a major source of food. Although most rice producers and consumers live in Asia, rice is also an essential staple and a source of income for millions of others, making rice production one of the planet’s most important economic activities. Rice farms cover 11% of the world’s arable area, so the development of sustainable technologies can have a large positive impact on the global environment.
Gilles Jonker, Elsevier Publisher of Agricultural Sciences comments "This exciting partnership enhances our well-established agriculture portfolio and has been the result of close collaboration with colleagues in our Beijing office and with representatives of the China National Rice Research Institute, "

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
