NYAS and Nature Publishing Group join forces

The Nature Publishing Group, publishers of the world-renowned journal Nature, has joined forces with the New York Academy of Sciences, the prestigious international scientific society founded in 1817, to create a unique partnership designed to impact upon the pace of scientific achievement around the globe.

The two organizations have agreed to collaborate on a series of new initiatives that will capitalize on the Academy's strength in fostering novel and cutting-edge scientific gatherings and Nature's strengths in disseminating high-quality scientific information to a worldwide community of scientists. The common goal of the collaboration is to enhance the capacity of scientists from around the world to share new knowledge.

Both organizations share common characteristics: commitment to a multidisciplinary focus and serving global communities. Nature serves subscribers in over 100 countries; the Academy has members in 150 nations. Among the initiatives planned are development and co-sponsorship of meetings, seminars, and symposia in New York and beyond on the most important, hottest topics in science today. For example, subjects under discussion for possible investigation include aging-related neurodegenerative diseases, RNAi, emerging infectious diseases, nanotechnology, and many more.

The Academy/Nature alliance will also focus on ways to utilize print, electronic, and other novel dissemination methods to transmit the information, ideas, and conclusions from those gatherings to scientists everywhere. One model for such an effort are the electronic briefings currently being developed on the Academy's website, www.nyas.org, that feature in-depth coverage of conferences and meetings, including summary reports, transcripts, audio/video coverage, slides, and additional resources.

"International and multidisciplinary 'cross-pollination' are essential drivers of the engines of scientific, technological, and medical progress,
