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."

Essential Science Indicators SM from Thomson Reuters provides citation rankings of scientists, institutions, countries, and journals broken out by broad fields of science. A total of 10 years of Thomson Reuters citation data, plus a number of consecutive bimonthly periods during the current year, are used to determine the rankings. The entities that have achieved the highest percentage increase in total citations are singled out as Rising Stars in their respective fields.

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

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...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

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....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

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...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

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...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

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....
