Nature Portfolio expands with two new titles for 2025

London | Berlin | New York, 27 March 2024 

Two new Nature Reviews journals, Nature Reviews Clean Technology and Nature Reviews Biodiversity, will launch in January 2025 These titles will offer new avenues for research publication in evolving areas such as sustainable technologies and the current threats to biodiversity, increasing knowledge around some of the critical issues that our world is facing.

Nature Reviews Clean Technology will cover technologies and processes that reduce harmful environmental impact through providing clean sources of energy and materials, improving energy efficiency, using resources sustainably, and reducing waste production. Nature Reviews Clean Technology will provide a home for these topics as reviews, timely opinion articles, and education for experts, students, practitioners, and policymakers. The journal will be led by Chief Editor Laura Zinke, PhD. 

Nature Reviews Biodiversity will review the ecology, evolution and conservation research needed to effectively manage, mitigate, and prevent the loss of biodiversity. The journal will particularly highlight challenges related to the biodiversity crisis, but will take a holistic viewpoint to cover general ecology and evolution, as these fundamental fields are critical to understanding the natural world. The journal will emphasize equitable solutions to biodiversity conservation and published articles will identify the geographic gaps that impede complete understanding of biodiversity. Nature Reviews Biodiversity’s Chief Editor is Alexa McKay, PhD.

This year marks a decade of the Nature journals new launches programme. Starting in 2015, the programme has successfully launched 31 new journals across the research spectrum, serving diverse new communities and addressing global challenges and influencing policy. 

Like all Nature-branded journals, the new launches will be overseen by a team of professional editors who oversee the careful selection, commissioning, fair and rigorous peer-review, accurate editing, rapid publication and broad dissemination of commissioned and proposed content . Nature Reviews Clean Technology and Nature Reviews Biodiversity are subscription-only journals.
