The winners of this year’s Nobel Prize have recently been announced, and Wiley is proud to have published work by nine of the laureates.
“I would like to congratulate each of the 2014 Nobel laureates on their remarkable achievements,” said Steven Miron, Executive Vice President, Global Research. “We are honored that the laureates are a part of our author community and have chosen to publish their research with Wiley and the societies and organizations we serve.”
To celebrate the achievements of the laureates Wiley has made a selection of content (see below) from the 2014 winners free to access until the end of the year.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry
This year’s Chemistry Prize, awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, was given jointly to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy.
Eric Betzig first published with Wiley in 1986 with an article in Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, and more recently has published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition and Current Protocols in Cell Biology. Stefan W. Hell serves on the Editorial Boards of ChemPhysChem, Annalen der Physik, Journal of Biophotonics and Journal of Microscopy, with his latest research appearing in September as a cover story in Chemistry-A European Journal. William E. Moerner has published with Wiley throughout his career and serves on the Editorial Board of ChemPhysChem.
The Nobel Prize in Physics
The Nobel Prize in Physics, also awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, was given to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura for ‘the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources’.
Shuki Nakamura first published with Wiley in 1996 with an article in Advanced Materials, and more recently, his letter in physica status solidi attracted over 100 citations. Hiroshi Amano guest edited three issues of physica status solidi, with his most recent edition published this year. All three Nobel Prize winners authored chapters in the book Nitrades with Non-Polar Surfaces: Growth, Properties and Devices (Wiley-VCH, 2008).
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet have awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to John O’Keefe, May-Britt Moser, and Edvard I. Moser, for ‘their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain’. All three prize recipients are members of the Editorial Board of the Wiley journal Hippocampus, and have all published with Wiley.
May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser have published their work in EMBO Molecular Medicine, Hippocampus, Scandinavian Journal of Psychology and European Journal of Neuroscience. John O’Keefe has published two chapters in Wiley’s Encyclopaedia of Cognitive Science as well as the CIBA Foundation Symposium series.
