サイエンス(Science)に論文を出す方法

ネイチャー(Nature)に論文を出す方法があるからには当然サイエンス(Science)に論文を出す方法もあります。サイエンスのエディターらが日本を含め世界各国のさまざまな大学でセミナーを行っており、そのスライドなどがインターネット上で閲覧できます。

ネイチャーとサイエンスの名前はどちらも最も権威のある学術誌としてよく並べて挙げられますが、サイエンスへの掲載に当たっては、著者らが高名な学者かどうか、権威のある研究所に属しているかどうかなどは一切関係がないことが明言されており、自分の研究分野の第一人者との議論や共同研究を論文掲載のための戦略の一つとして勧めているネイチャーとは若干異なるスタンスであるように思われます。

Hines noted that Science publishes research articles that “shine with quality”, stand out from the pack (i.e. are not similar to already published reports), and can be recognized as “outliers, closers, and leaders”. As she explained, an outlier is a research paper on a fresh, unexpected topic; a closer is one that presents unequivocal evidence to resolve a scientific debate; and a leader is one that moves science forward by “defining new questions”.

Manuscripts that are immediately rejected by Science are not of broad interest, report a minor scientific advance, draw conclusions not sufficiently supported by the evidence, are lacking in mechanistic insight, or report “permutations of known phenomena” (i.e. research repeated in a new biological model system); these latter papers are more suitable to publication by specialty journals. Hines’ suggestion for new authors is to focus on the “logic of thought flow”, as this aspect of good writing has a strong influence on the editorial decision.
