Kirsten Severing博士于瑞典Stockholm大学完成物理化学硕士学位之前,在德国Aachen学习化学工程。2005年,于德国Freiburg大学高分子化学研究所获得博士学位,并在2007年加入Wiley,为Macromolecular系列期刊,Advanced Materials以及Advanced Functional Materials工作。从2014年起,Kirsten Severing博士担任Advanced Science和Macromolecular系列期刊主编。


2019即将迎来Advanced Science 创刊五周年,自出版以来,Advanced Science影响力不断提高。2019年,期刊影响因子涨幅27%,一跃至15.804。以下是对主编Kirsten Severing博士的访谈记录:


回顾过去与展望未来


1.Advanced Science成立至今,期刊经历了哪些变化?又有什么标准期刊一直遵守从未改变?


Kirsten Severing博士: 5年前推出Advanced Science时,提交的大多数稿件都来自材料科学领域。Advanced系列期刊的核心阅读群体相信着:这是一本由知名Advanced Materials编辑运营的高质量开放获取期刊。五年后,其它领域也发现这是一本可以高优先级发表成果的发布平台。现如今,我们的很大一部分稿件内容来自健康科学和生命科学领域。我们坚持发表最高质量、具备最广泛视野的成果,这是我们一直以来从未改变的决心。 并且我们坚持:论文必须通过严格且公平的同行评审流程才能在Advanced Science上发表


When we launched Advanced Science 5 years ago the majority of our submissions came from the field of materials science. The core community of the Advanced journals believed in the idea of a high-quality open access journal run by the re-known editors of Advanced Materials. 5 years later, other communities have discovered Advanced Science as an excellent publishing platform for high priority results. Nowadays, a large fraction of our submissions comes from the field of health and life sciences. What hasn’t changed is our ambition to publish results of highest quality and broadest interest. A strict but fair peer-review process must be passed in order to get published in Advanced Science.



2.Advanced Science出版第一年即被Web of Science收录。过去的五年中,Advanced Science在材料科学,物理和化学,医学和生命科学,工程基础科学和应用科学等多学科领域的影响力不断增加,最新的IF上涨至15.804。您认为是哪些因素让Advanced Science成功?未来五年您对Advanced Science的期望是什么?


Kirsten Severing博士在我看来,Advanced Science的成功基于三件事:国际化多学科编辑团队的集体努力对Advanced这个品牌是出版高质量成果的风向标的认可,以及我们坚持选择优秀研究并为作者提供最好服务的决心


未来5年将会激动人心。当然,我们不断努力,期望改进期刊。另一方面,我们希望吸引新的科研群体,进一步拓宽Advanced Science的范围及视野。


In my opinion the success of Advanced Science is based on three things: The collective effort of a truly global and multidisciplinary editorial team, the recognition of the Advanced brand as an indicator for highest quality standards, and our ongoing ambition to select excellent research and provide the best service for our authors.


The next 5 years will be an exciting time. Of course, we continuously strive to improve the journal. On the other hand, we would like to attract new research communities to further broaden the scope of Advanced Science.



3.今年即将迎来Advanced Science出版五周年纪念,有什么庆祝的打算吗?


Kirsten Severing博士确实,我们将在今年12月庆祝成立五周年。波士顿MRS秋季会议发布期刊五年后的今年,我们将举办另一场招待会,邀请董事会成员,作者和感兴趣的读者与我们聚在一起,了解更多有关Advanced Science的信息。但是,取得巨大成功的同时是巨大的责任,因此不会花费太多的时间来庆祝。毕竟还有每月提交数百篇论文等待着他们的决定。


Indeed, we will celebrate the 5th anniversary in December this year. 5 years after the launch of the journal at the MRS fall meeting in Boston we will have another reception this year, where we invite board members, authors and interested readers to get together with us and find out more about Advanced Science. But with great success comes great responsibility, so there will not be too much time celebrate. Hundreds of papers are submitted each month and wait for their decisions.



评审标准与投稿建议


1.Advanced Science因其发表于不同领域最佳论文的高标准而闻名。目前在确保文章质量和同行评审机制方面的做法是什么?我们有什么优势?


Kirsten Severing博士为了确保最高的出版标准,Advanced Science的编辑工作流程与Advanced Materials及其它姐妹期刊相同。经验丰富的内部编辑根据文章新颖性视野是否广泛以及影响力进行严格的预选。并非每篇论文都可以被送出去进行外部评审。我们精心选择论文相应所在领域的专家为审稿人,以帮助审阅我们觉得最有趣论文的详细内容,并帮助我们做出有根据的决策,也有助于提高Advanced Science(或更专业期刊)的稿件质量。毋庸置疑,我们使用的工具包括iThenticate,Web of Science,Google Scholar等。


To ensure highest publication standards, Advanced Science uses the same editorial work flows as Advanced Materials and its sister journals. Our highly experienced in-house editors make a strict pre-selection based on novelty, broad interest and impact. Not every single paper can be sent out for external reviewing. Experts in their fields are carefully selected as reviewers to look into the details of the papers we find most interesting and help us to make substantiated decisions and improve the submissions for publication in Advanced Science (or a more specialized journal). Needless to say that we use tools like iThenticate, Web of Science, Google Scholar etc.



2.对于想要投稿顶级期刊的年轻中国研究人员,有没有什么好的建议?


Kirsten Severing博士将您为什么想把论文投给Advanced Science的原因告诉我们,并用事实来列证,这样可以让您的工作更容易引起编辑的注意。同时,我建议最好具备两个特性:透明和开放。如果您的论文之前已被其它期刊考虑过,我们极有可能会获悉,所以坦诚开放为佳。


Tell us your reasons for submitting your work to Advanced Science and substantiate your reasons with facts. This will increase your chances to get the attention of the editor. Transparency and openness are two additional things I recommend. If your paper has been considered by another journal before, we are very likely to find it out anyway, so better be open about it.



科研建议与看法


1.能否介绍一下您在Advanced Science担任主编的日常工作?


Kirsten Severing博士虽然作为Advanced Science的主编,但我仍然是内部编辑团队的一员,我们需要查看论文,参加会议,与作者科学家们会面。另外,我还需要考虑Advanced Science总体发展的战略。我离不开整个编辑团队,他们具有不同的科学背景(生物学,化学,物理学,材料科学,工程学),很高兴看到越来越多成员加入副主编团队,以及越来越多来自中国办公室的同事。


As the editor-in-chief of Advanced Science I am one part of our in-house editorial team that works on manuscripts, visits conferences, meets authors, exciting scientists. On top of that, of course I oversee the general development and strategy of Advanced Science. I strongly rely on the whole editorial team with their different scientific backgrounds (biology, chemistry, physics, material science, engineering) and more and more also on my deputy editors and the colleagues from our Beijing office.



2.您如何看待学术研究里女性的角色?对平衡工作与生活有什么好的建议?


Kirsten Severing博士我在出版界发现了能够致力一生的事业,它能让我接触到全世界杰出的研究员。平衡工作和生活对每个人来说都非常重要,能让我们重新充电,提高生产力和创意。我希望未来有一天世界能够让女性和男性处在同一起点下去实现工作和生活的平衡


I don’t really consider myself a female power in scientific research. I have found a career in publishing, which for me is exciting, because I get in touch with brilliant researchers from over the world. A healthy balance between work and life is important for everyone in order to re-energize and improve productivity and creativity. I hope that the world will some day provide more equal chances for women and men to achieve this.



3.您如何看待科学研究与传播的关系?


Kirsten Severing博士:研究与传播应该齐头并进。如果没能适当地宣传,那么最好的研究也几乎没有影响力。所以就此来看,编辑们以及出版商们肩负着极大的责任。帮助改进论文的同时也要确保实验的可重复性,我们非常重视这一责任。


Research and communication should go hand in hand. The best research can have very little impact, if it is not communicated adequately. In that respect, editors, and publishers in general, carry a big responsibility. Helping to improve submitted research papers, but also ensuring reproducibility of experiments is a very important task and we take this responsibility very seriously.
