Legends of Nature and Editors-in-chief

Goals

This year marks the 150th celebration of Nature. However, the understanding of the way the army of unsung editors-in-chief has strengthened and enriched the integrity and quality of the journal under the umbrella of its original mission remains nominal rather than substantial.

150 years of Nature

We scrutinize the chief vehicle guided by Nature‘s doctrine with regard to the ways it has conflicted with the advancement of both science and social progress. We first recast quantitative spatiotemporal analysis on the diachronic discourse of Nature since its debut, which promises to articulate the unfolding chronological picture of Nature on a historical time scale, and pinpoint overdue corrective to the strongly-held but flawed notions on editors-in-chief of Nature.

Our findings strongly indicate that the army of editors-in-chief have never met with their fair share of identification, and they took on the challenge guided by Nature‘s doctrine with extraordinary polymath, unparalleled enthusiasm and diverse characters.

Our key findings are listed as follows:

  • On the occasion of the 150th celebration of Nature, we first recast quantitative spatiotemporal analysis on the diachronic discourse of Nature since its debut, which promises to articulate the unfolding chronological picture of Nature on a historical time scale, and pinpoint overdue corrective to the strongly-held but flawed notions on editors-in-chief of Nature.
  • The tale of each editor-in-chief is a legend, but in the past 150 years, the army of editors-in-chief have never met with their fair share of identification. Our findings strongly indicate that they took on the challenge guided by Nature’s doctrine with extraordinary polymath, unparalleled enthusiasm and diverse characters. For example, Sir Richard Arman Gregory and John Royden Maddox were computers in their early careers, and our finding first enunciates that the scientific lingua franca ‘computer’ was used as an occupation in their times.
  • With the pull of academic accession, our critical reviews are expected to provide a hallmark reference to reframe far-reaching discussions on learned journals and scientific enterprises.
