More OA Journals Arrive From Frontiers

Frontiers, part of Nature Publishing Group, introduced Frontiers in Earth Science and Frontiers in Environmental Science as the newest additions to its open access (OA) journal collection.

The new journals are part of the Frontiers in … journal series. Manuscripts submitted to the series are reviewed by specialty associate and review editors, and specialty chief editors are assigned to each subject area.

Frontiers in Earth Science’s introductory specialty sections include Atmospheric Science, Interdisciplinary Climate Studies, and Paleontology.

Frontiers in Environmental Science’s initial sections also include Atmospheric Science, as well as Environmental Toxicology and Groundwater Resources and Management.

“Frontiers expands the notion of publishing by adding network possibilities and impact metrics to evaluate individual articles,” according to Luis Gimeno, specialty chief editor for Atmospheric Science.

All of Frontiers’ articles are published under a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY) that allows researchers to share, copy, and distribute content as long as they credit the authors.
