Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
When not at conferences or doing peer-review, we too like to keep-up-to date with interesting science. Plus it’s an excuse to surf the web at work! Here’s what we’ve been reading and talking about recently.
A dedicated publishing venue to those researchers working in the interdisciplinary field connecting biology and biochemistry with the underlying physical and mathematical models.
Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.
JPhysB has begun publishing Frontiers of Free-Electron Laser Science II. Click the title to find out more.
In the penultimate post of the series I look at a review discussing the state of art of nanopores for cheaper and faster DNA sequencing techniques.
In this summary of Christelle N Prinz’s topical review you can find out what happens when a nanowire meets a living cell and the challenges facing researchers trying to improve and expand the use of these nanostructures in biomedical applications.
A look back over the research highlights of 2015 so far. JPhysA insights offer an opportunity for researchers to get a flavour of work published across the journal that may be outside their areas of expertise.
We’re coming up to almost halfway through 2015; where has the time gone?! In this years’ volume of JPhysD (48) we’ve published over 350 papers, including two special issues; Heusler compounds and Aluminium Plasmonics, and filled more than half of the years’ issues already. So let’s cast our eye over some of my highlights of 2015 so far in each section of JPhysD.
This week’s image is taken from a review that looks at how physical models are able to predict the 3D structure of RNA.
A roundup of the Topical Reviews and Tutorials JPhysB has published so far this year.
Our new sister journal complements the Journal of Physics‘ bio- sections to provide the first interdisciplinary journal for physical oncologists.
March saw the two-day conference Magnetism 2015, organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) and held at The University of Leeds, attended by almost 250 members of the magnetism community. JPhysD‘s Jennifer recaps some of the research presented.
Superconducting topological insulators, efficient solar cells and transcription factors acting like buoys. JPCM’s authors explain all in March’s LabTalks.
Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter welcomed Susan perkin, Laurence Ramos and Xiangjun Xing to the Liquids, soft matter and biological physics Editorial Board in 2015. Read their profiles to find out more about them.
