A suggestion has been made to the Council mooting the publication of an electronic journal (on the internet and in CDs) and perhaps later in print, of a journal of the National Academy of Sciences. It could be a biannual or annual journal similar to theProceedings of the National Academies (PNAS) of the United States. It could contain:
- cutting-edge research papers,
- review articles,
- perspectives on current issues,
- colloquia papers, and
- reports on activities of the Academy.
It would be run by an Editorial Boardwith the assistance of peer review panels for each disciplinary area (medicine, science, engineering, etc.). It would receive wide circulation through the National Academies of various countries.
Please let us know what you think about this proposal as soon as possible. Would you be interested in having your research and review papers published in such a journal?
