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.”

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
