Taylor & Francis begins publication of three new journals.
'Nanotoxicology' publishes articles addressing research into the interactions between nano-structured materials and living matter (the 'wet-dry interface'). Much of the journal is devoted to coverage of investigations of the biological interactions with nano-scale materials and all man-made nanostructured materials, such as the interactions between living tissues and the surfaces of prostheses (wearing can produce nanoparticles) and in the context of 'eco-nanotoxicology' (the movement of nanomaterials through the biosphere). It also covers methods of toxicity minimization in fields such as medicine and pharmacology, and the mobility, persistence and toxicity of nano-structured materials and their breakdown products in humans, animals, the environment and within biota. An annual subscription costs $72 for individuals and $280 for institutions.
'Journal of Plant Interactions' is targeted to plant biologists, ecologists, microbiologists, agronomists, landscape architects and environmental engineers and is published to carry research and reviews dealing with the interaction between plants and their surrounding environment. The main sections of the journal cover the interaction between: plants and other plants; plants and microorganisms; plants and insects; plants and animals; plants and the environment; and, plants and soil. An annual subscription costs $145 for individuals and $317 for institutions.
'Structure and Infrastructure Engineering' is targeted to professionals with a background in civil, aerospace, mechanical, marine, and automotive engineering, as well as professionals involved in infrastructure maintenance, management and cost analysis. The journal's mission is to present research and developments on advanced technologies for analyzing, predicting and optimizing infrastructure performance, including bridges, buildings, dams, underground constructions, offshore platforms, pipelines, naval vessels, ocean structures, nuclear power plants, airplanes and related structures. Editorial covers mathematical modeling, computer methods, construction and design, life-cycle analysis and prediction, specifications and codes, repair, risk management and maintenance strategies.
