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: New studies increase confidence in NASA's measure of Earth's temperature

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.

The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...

Im Focus: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
