This Journal presents up-to-date scientific achievements of great significance in various fields of natural science including life science, earth science, materials science and information science. All papers published in this journal are subjected to strict peer-review process. Although it is a China-based scientific journal now, contributions from authors of all nationalities are very welcome.
Progress in Natural Science accepts the following categories of paper: review articles, scientific papers, short communications, and academic forum. To submit articles please visit http://pub.nsfc.gov.cn/
Prof. Zhu Zhuoyan, Deputy Chief Editor and Vice President of NSFC states: “As the largest grant-giving institution of Chinese science, it is important for NSFC to have a voice in the world, in order to showcase the achievements of the researchers that we fund. We are happy to have found in Elsevier an international partner that is willing to support us fully in making our ambitions a reality."
Martin Tanke, journal publishing managing director comments “We are delighted to partner with NNSFC in publishing Progress in Natural Science. The journal is already a showcase of China's rapid scientific growth, and we look forward to making its content accessible to our 10 million worldwide users."
Deborah Logan, Elsevier journals publisher comments: “Progress in Natural Science is an exciting new partnership for us because of its potential to become a highly influential international journal. At a time when Chinese science is seeing many opportunities in its choice of partners, we are truly delighted that NNSFC has chosen to work with us.”

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...
The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
