Advances in Atmospheric Sciences named Rising Star by ScienceWatch

13.08.2008
Springer publication achieves the highest percentage increase in total citations among geosciences journals

The Springer journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences (AAS) was recently named a Rising Star among geosciences journals by ScienceWatch.com. According to Essential Science Indicators SM from Thomson Reuters , the journal's current citation record includes 764 papers cited a total of 1,658 times between January 1, 1998, and February 29, 2008.

Advances in Atmospheric Sciences was launched in 1984 and offers rapid publication of original scientific papers on the dynamics, physics and chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans. The journal is sponsored by The Chinese Committee for the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is co-published by Springer and Science Press.

Co-Chief Editors Guoxiong Wu, Huijun Wang and Da-Lin Zhang speculated on the reasons for the high citation rate. Wu said, "It may be attributed to the international orientation of the journal, including the close collaboration with Springer, the periodically recycled international editorial board, and the significant increase of international submissions." He added, "Moreover, with Springer's flexible distribution channels and marketing strategies, accessibility of AAS has also greatly improved since 2006, which is shown in AAS's subscription increase and downloading rates."

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
