A recent integration between Pensoft and ReviewerCredits enables reviewers in Pensoft's peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journals to access additional benefits and receive recognition and reward for their activity. Apart from an easy process to certify ongoing and past reviews, the integration allows reviewers to showcase their activity and to be assigned virtual credits, which can be redeemed for benefits provided by selected partners, including discounted APCs.
An online treatment proven to prevent anxiety and depression in young people is set to become available to the NHS and other mental health services worldwide.
Over the next two weeks, as part of the BLUESKY research program, a team led by the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will measure concentrations of trace gases and pollutants in the air over European urban areas and in the flight corridor to North America. The aim of these research missions is to investigate how reduced emissions from industry and transport are changing atmospheric chemistry and physics.
Nine National University of Singapore researchers were part of a team that went on a five-week long voyage to the Pacific Ocean's Clarion-Clipperton Zone to obtain baseline data on the biodiversity of abyssal polymetallic nodule fields.
Despite a temporary shutdown of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument in Arizona - which was in its final stages of testing in preparation to begin mapping millions of galaxies in 3D when the pandemic struck - a variety of project tasks are still moving forward.
A technology developed by researchers at PNNL could pave the way for increased fuel economy and lower greenhouse gas emissions as part of an octane-on-demand fuel-delivery system. The system separates ethanol-blended gasoline into high- and low-octane fuel components, metering out the appropriate fuel mixture to the engine depending on the power required.
Since its establishment last year, the Department of the Navy's Tech Bridges initiative has harnessed collaboration and creativity to address naval concerns and capabilities. It's been so successful that the Naval Agility Office (NavalX) recently announced the creation of six new Tech Bridge locations --doubling the number to 12.
As spring and summer temperatures return to the Northern Hemisphere, winter's snow is melting, releasing precious fresh water into Earth's streams, rivers and oceans.
Faculty members at Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center are examining both intermediate materials and finished masks from a multidisciplinary approach.
A software system developed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to study how human interactions affect behavior and public health could potentially be used for contact tracing in an epidemic. The app uses location and Bluetooth technology to provide anonymous notification to those who may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
