Nature announces new titles for 2025

Springer Nature says 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.

According to the publisher, 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 aims to 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, added the publisher. The journal aims to 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 publisher continued. 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.

The publisher says, like all Nature-branded journals, the new launches will be overseen by a team of editors who oversee the selection, commissioning, peer-review, editing, publication and dissemination of commissioned and proposed content. Nature Reviews Clean Technology and Nature Reviews Biodiversity will be subscription-only journals.
