Papers published in ground-breaking new ICE Science journal series show power of interdisciplinary research in the material sciences

Dear All,
I thought you might be interested to learn that ICE Publishing, the
publishing division of the Institution of Civil Engineers, has just
announced the immediate availability of 28 ahead of print articles -
including 2012 Themed Issue articles on Bioinspired Materials - from
its new flagship journal series: ICE Science.
The ICE Science collection is offering free online access to all
published content throughout 2011 and 2012, and has a
multidisciplinary approach that aims to foster dynamic links between
research communities that traditionally work in isolation, stimulating
new ideas and creating opportunities for innovative collaborations.
I've copied today's press release below for your information - I do
hope it's of interest; please let me know if you would like to run a
news item on this and/or need any more information.
Best wishes,

material sciences.//
\ICE Science journal series launches with 28 debut ahead of print
articles now available free online./
ICE Publishing, the publishing division of the Institution of Civil
Engineers, today announces the immediate availability of ahead of
print articles =96 including 2012 Themed Issue articles of Bioinspired
Materials =96 from its new flagship journal series: ICE Science.
Offering free online access to all published content throughout 2011
and 2012, the ICE Science collection has a multidisciplinary approach
that aims to foster dynamic links between research communities that
traditionally work in isolation, stimulating new ideas and creating
opportunities for innovative collaborations. Inspiring fresh thinking
in how breakthrough research can be practically applied to make
materials, medicines and energy ever more efficient and effective, ICE
Science is poised to revolutionise scientific research communications
as a multidisciplinary platform for the scientific community.
The interdisciplinary nature of the three journals in the ICE Science
series has already attracted the submission of a very high standard of
compelling research, and these first 28 papers represent the very best
of these early submissions.
=93It=92s exciting to be publishing articles from so many spectrums of
science=94 said Victoria Rae, Commissioning Editor at ICE Publishing.
=93We=92ve received manuscripts from all over the world, with authors
working in a variety of disciplines including Chemistry, Physics,
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Electrical and Computer
Engineering, and Chemical and Biological Engineering. All three ICE
Science titles complement one another by publishing at the
intersections of scientific research and sharing common themes, such
as solar energy, biomedical materials and nanocomposites.=94
The high calibre of the early submissions to =91Nanomaterials and
Energy=92, =91Emerging Materials Research=92 and =91Bioinspired, Biomimetic
and Nanobiomaterials=92, clearly demonstrates enthusiasm for the
multidisciplinary model. The first authors talk of their positive
experience publishing with ICE Science, describing the peer review and
editorial processes as =93attentive and fair=94.
Among the first of the =91Bioinspired, Biomimetic and Nanobiomaterials=92
articles is a paper by Jie Han and co-authors from Shanghai Jiao Tong
University, China and Korea Basic Science Institute, Korea, on the
unique reflection properties of nano-CdS/butterfly wings
nanocomposites, focusing on exploring unusual optical properties by
substituting the natural photonic crystals (PhC) structures in
butterfly wings for artificial PhCs.
In an article by Dale R. Harshman, Physikon Research Corporation, USA,
University of Notre Dame, USA and Anthony T. Fiory, New Jersey
Institute of Technology, USA, for =91Emerging Materials Research=92, the
high-transition temperature (high-TC) superconductivity in ultrathin
crystals is considered, alongside the implications for microscopic
theory.
Debut articles for =91Nanomaterials and Energy=92 include a review on the
methods developed and studied to control nanomorphology in plastic
solar cells by John A. Carr and colleagues from the departments of
Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and
Engineering at Iowa State University, USA.

will
be the first journal to be launched in the ICE Science collection, in
January 2012. Led by editor-in-chief, Professor Nitin Chopra,
University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, USA, the journal will bring
together research from scientists and engineers working at the
juncture of nanomaterials and energy, helping identify new and ever
more efficient energy sources with a cost-benefit focus.

launches in February 2012 and brings new vision and insight to the
field of materials science. Materials Research is constantly evolving
and correlations between process, structure, properties and
performance - which are application specific - require expert
understanding at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale. Through this new
journal, editor-in-chief, Professor N. M Ravindra, New Jersey
Institute of Technology, USA, invites researchers across science and
engineering to identify revolutionary and diverse applications for new
and evolving materials.

brings together ideas from the most
promising area of research within the field of biological materials
science and engineering. The technological significance of this area
is immense for applications as diverse as tissue engineering and drug
delivery biosystems to biomimicked sensors and optical devices. This
third journal, in the ICE Science collection, also launches in
February 2012 and its Editor-in-chief is Professor Kajal Mallick,
School of Engineering, University of Warwick, UK.
