Dean to Serve as Associate Editor for New Journal

September 9, 2014

Mark Aldenderfer, dean of School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts, has been selected to serve as an associate editor of Science Advances, a new journal from the nonprofit American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

"I'm honored to be selected to join the Science family of journals and look forward to working in this open-access environment," Aldenderfer said.

Spanning science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the social sciences, the new online publication will leverage Science’s uniquely broad scope to help speed scientific progress by promoting the rapid communication of current research, according to a news release about the journal. Science Advances will be published online only, on an open-access basis.

The journal aims to debut in 2015.

AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society, was founded in 1848 and encompasses 261 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving an estimated 10 million individuals.

Science’s daily online news is always free to the public, as are editorials, any paper with broad public health significance, and all of the journal’s content 12 months after publication.
