SCI Journal Highlights – showcasing the best-in-class research, as chosen by our editors, from our global network of leading scientists.

We're excited to launch our brand new Journal Highlights, showcasing the most exciting, impactful and interesting studies published in SCI’s journals, each carefully selected by the journal’s editors. 

SCI’s Journal Highlights will serve to communicate and promote the exceptional applied science published in SCI’s multidisciplinary portfolio of peer-reviewed academic titles, which receive contributions from leading scientists working in many fields of research and at institutions worldwide.

SCI Journal Highlights will feature studies recently published in:

Each journal will have one editor-selected paper highlighted every quarter, with an introduction by the journal’s editor and an exclusive interview with the lead researchers, as well as a lay summary and the paper’s abstract.

In addition to the quarterly synchronised release of Highlights for all of SCI’s journals via, additional individual Highlights will be released throughout the year.

Highlights can be found at and will also feature in our flagship magazine, Chemistry & Industry (C&I). SCI members and non-members alike can also subscribe to receive Highlights directly to their emails.

The first collection of seven Highlights, published on 28 February, includes an investigation by researchers in Spain into the effects of climate variability on wine grapes in the Rioja region (originally published in JSFA); a Beijing-led study into the potential for elastomer-silica nanocomposites to pave the way for eco-friendly tires (Polymer International); and a Swedish study to develop a model to sustainably improve land use while providing a local grass clover-based biomass feedstock for biorefineries (BioFPR).
