Science Robotics caters to both researchers and general stakeholders. It is multidisciplinary, covering the traditional disciplines of robotics, as well as emerging trends such as advanced materials and bio-inspired designs; it covers all scales, from very large systems to micro/nano robots; its scope is broad, addressing both theoretical advances and practical applications; and it promotes reproducibility, facilitated by online supplementary materials and design/code repositories.
To promote advances in research and development of robotics for all environments by providing a central forum for communication of the most exciting new discoveries.
Science Robotics will publish original, peer-reviewed, science- or engineering-based research articles that advance the field of robotics. The journal will also feature editor-commissioned Reviews. An international team of academic editors will hold Science Robotics articles to the same high-quality standard that is the hallmark of the Science family of journals.
