When the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST)--the long-awaited successor to the Hubble Space Telescope--becomes operational in 2022, one of its first orders of business will be mapping the earliest structures of the universe. A team of nearly 50 researchers led by scientists at Rochester Institute of Technology and University of Texas at Austin will attempt to do so through the COSMOS-Webb program, the largest General Observer program selected for JWST's first year.
Researchers at HZDR want to build the world's first prototype that tracks moving tumors with magnetic resonance imaging in real time during proton therapy. They are combining a rotating open MRI device with an actively scanned clinical-akin proton beam at OncoRay. Real-time MRI would make it possible to synchronize the proton beam to tumor motion during radiation dose delivery. So far, this has been impossible and therefore was a limiting factor for treating moving tumors with this promising cancer therapy.
The scholarly publisher and technology provider Pensoft welcomes the latest addition to its diverse portfolio of scholarly outlets - the open-access, peer-reviewed journal Acta Ichthyologica et Piscatoria (AIeP). AIeP is an international scientific journal publishing articles in any aspect of ichthyology and fisheries concerning true fishes (fin-fishes). AIeP is indexed by all major indexers, including Web of Science and Scopus. The journal's first Impact Factor was released in 2010, and currently stands at 0.629 (2019).
The Company of Biologists has migrated its leading journals to the hosting platform of Silverchair, improving user experience and maximising the discoverability of their content for the biological community.
Scientists developed a technology for processing liquid industrial waste. It is universal, suitable for almost any industrial enterprise. It allows cleaning industrial wastewater -- removing insoluble components from the solution and desalinate the water.
A team of researchers from Utah State University have developed a DC current-to-DC voltage power converter. This converter is equipped for long distances and minimal maintenance, making it particularly useful in underwater power distribution networks.
The American College of Physicians (ACP), publisher of Annals of Internal Medicine (Annals), one of the most influential peer-reviewed clinical journals in the world, and the American Heart Association (AHA) today announce a new partnership to jointly publish Annals of Internal Medicine: Clinical Cases (AIMCC). The digital, open access, peer-reviewed journal will publish case reports relevant to clinicians across the spectrum of medicine.
In a race to transform the vaccine-hesitant into adopters in New York City and surrounding counties as Covid-19 variants rise, the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) has announced the New York State Vaccine Education and Adoption Project.
Venus images are nothing new, but a solar probe surprised the researchers by seeing through the planet's clouds.
Manufacturing process for industries of electronics, such as semiconductors, flat panel displays, and solar batteries uses dangerous toxic and flammable gases and requires a large amount of energy to detoxify. On the basis of the research outcome by Professor Takanori Ichiki of the University of Tokyo, Kanken Techno Co. developed the abatement system that efficiently detoxifies exhaust gases with a low-energy.
