Elsevier publishes six new forensic science titles
- 23 Mar 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Forensic Investigations: An Introduction by Brent E. Turvey and Stan Crowder. Using cases from the authors' extensive files, it provides an overview of major subjects related to forensic inquiry and evidence examination. The book will prepare criminal justice and criminology students in forensic programs for more specialised courses and provide a valuable resource to newly employed forensic practitioners. Elsevier also announced the publication of five additional forensic science books.

Forensic Investigations: An Introduction addresses the accumulated myths and misconceptions regarding forensic investigators and the subsequent forensic investigations they help to conduct. It helps readers understand the role of the forensic investigator; the nature and variety of forensic investigations that take place in the justice system; and the mechanisms by which such investigations become worthy as evidence in court.

The six new forensic science titles are: Forensic Investigations: An Introduction by Brent E. Turvey and Stan Crowder; Osteoarchaeology: A Guide to the Macroscopic Study of Human Skeletal Remains by Efthymia Nikita; Essentials of Medicolegal Death Investigation by Matthew Lunn; Forensic Science Reform: Protecting the Innocent by Wendy Koen and C. Michael Bowers; Human Remains: Another Dimension - The Application of Imaging to the Study of Human Remains by Tim Thompson and David Errickson; and Creating Digital Faces for Law Enforcement by Michael W. Streed.

In order to meet content needs in forensic science, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. The new books, which will educate the next generation of forensic scientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

Elsevier publishes five new plastics and polymers titles
- 20 Mar 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications by Ajay Padsalgikar. The book enables designers of new cardiovascular medical devices to make decisions about the kind of plastics needed to manufacture each device by explaining the property requirements of various applications in this area, including artificial valves, lead insulation, balloons and vascular grafts. Elsevier also announced the publication of four additional plastics and polymers books.

Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications describes which materials can be used for each application, and why each is appropriate, leading to the design of better tools and processes. It allows designers to improve device performance and comply with regulations by selecting the best material for each application.

Dr. Ajay Padsalgikar is a chief scientist at St. Jude Medical, one of world's leading companies in the manufacture of cardiovascular devices. Dr. Padsalgikar has extensive experience in the application of polymers in the manufacture of medical devices in the cardiovascular field. As Chief Scientific Officer at AorTech Biomaterials, he worked with various medical device manufacturers in the cardiovascular space, obtaining a first-hand feel of the devices and the important properties of plastics necessary to fulfil the requirements of the application.

The five new plastics and polymers titles are: Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications by Ajay Padsalgikar; Rheology: Concepts, Methods, and Applications, Third Edition by Alexander Ya, Malkin and Avraam I. Isayev; Databook of Plasticizers, Second Edition by Anna Wypych; Handbook of Plasticizers, Third Edition by George Wypych; and Handbook of Odors in Plastic Materials, Second Edition by George Wypych.

In order to meet content needs in plastics and polymers, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of plastics and polymers engineers and researchers, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

Two new titles join Nature Research journals portfolio
- 17 Mar 2017

Two new titles will join the Nature Research journals portfolio in January 2018 - Nature Catalysis and Nature Electronics. They will open for submissions in the spring of 2017.

The two new journals will join the recently announced Nature Sustainability, and further demonstrate Nature Research's commitment to publishing applied research in support of societal needs and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, such as affordable and clean energy, industry innovation and infrastructure, responsible consumption and production. The journals also exemplify Springer Nature's determination to advance discovery by publishing robust and insightful research and to provide the best possible service to the whole of the research community by expanding the diversity of research published by Nature Research.

Nature Electronics will cover all areas of electronics, including commercial and industrial aspects of electronics research, and, at its core, be concerned with the development of new technologies and understanding the impact of these developments on society. It will publish both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, from the study of novel phenomena and devices, to the design, construction and wider application of electronic circuits. It will be led by Chief Editor Dr Owain Vaughan, previously an editor at Nature Nanotechnology and strategy editor for Nature Research.

Catalysis research cuts across the whole of chemistry - organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and biochemistry - and also touches upon other branches of science, such as material science and nanotechnology. Nature Catalysis will cover the science and business of catalysis research, publishing both fundamental and applied work on homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysts. The Chief Editor of Nature Catalysis will be Dr Enda Bergin, who was previously Senior Editor at Nature Communications.

Nature Catalysis and Nature Electronics will be characterised by a fair and rigorous peer-review process, high standards of copy-editing and production, swift publication and editorial independence. In addition to primary research, the journals will publish reviews, commentaries, features, perspectives, and news&views pieces covering the many issues of interest to their respective communities.

The journals will be online-only and subscription-based. They will be included in Springer Nature's SharedIt content sharing initiative, which was recently expanded across the Springer Nature owned portfolio. SharedIt provides authors and readers with shareable links to view-only versions of peer-reviewed research papers and enables more than 200 media outlets and blogs to link to a free-to-read version of research articles.
