Articles, of 3-4 pages in length, will be reviewed within two weeks of submission, with accepted papers published online within one week. Dr Simon Gibbons from the School of Pharmacy, University of London, who is the Editor-in-Chief, will be supported by a panel of Subject Editors and an extensive Editorial Board of internationally renowned experts in natural product science. Dr. Gibbons said “There was a clear need for a quality journal for short communications in this field, which will be satisfied through the launch of this exciting new publication.” Both he and the PSE are happy to have Elsevier as their publishing partner for this endeavor, and are looking forward to a successful publishing relationship.
Dr. James Milne, Publisher for organic and inorganic chemistry at Elsevier, added ”I was delighted to extend the collaboration between the PSE and Elsevier. The society’s 50th Anniversary Symposium (http://www.pse50.com) is being organized by Elsevier, in Cambridge, UK this April, and Elsevier also publishes the leading international journal Phytochemistry, an official journal of both the PSE and the PSNA (Phytochemical Society of North America). The working relationship between the PSE and Elsevier is both established and highly effective, providing a mutually beneficial platform on which to develop this important new publication for the natural product scientific community.”

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...
