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.”

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
