To reflect the increase in content from the Asia-Pacific region on Nature Network, the recently relaunched NatureAsia.com site now features an “Explore Nature Network” box. This section, which is right in the middle of the webpage, contains links to Nature Network blogs, online discussions and scientist profiles from Japan, China, India, Australia, New Zealand and other countries in the region. NatureAsia.com is the multilingual website of NPG Nature Asia-Pacific, which began in Tokyo as Nature Japan 20 years ago.
Nature Network started out with a fledgling Boston hub in 2006… since then, it has grown into a truly global social networking site for scientists worldwide and includes another locality, Nature Network London. There is plenty of activity from our Asia-Pacific members and this continues to grow. For the debut of the “Explore Nature Network” box on NatureAsia.com, we featured the “”http://network.nature.com/blogs/user/andrewsun">On The Road" blog by South China University of Technology graduate student Andrew Sun and the vibrant “”http://network.nature.com/forum/nnano">Nature Nanotechnology – Asia Pacific and Beyond" forum. There were also a couple of links to user profiles: Assistant Professor at the University of Tokyo Center for Nano-Bio Integration Mitsunobu Kano and the Nature Nanotechnology Associate Editor who runs the featured forum, Ai Lin Chun. The content is handpicked and will be frequently updated.
