Science Advances

Science Advances is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary open-access scientific journal established in early 2015. It is the first open-access journal published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. It was announced in February 2014, and published its first articles in early 2015. It has been criticized for charging an increased fee for processing articles that are published under one particular Creative Commons license, CC-BY, instead of another Creative Commons license, CC BY-NC.

Automated system generates robotic parts for novel tasks

An automated system developed by MIT researchers designs and 3-D prints complex robotic parts called actuators that are optimized according to an enormous number of specifications. In short, the system does automatically ...

Smart glasses follow our eyes, focus automatically

Though it may not have the sting of death and taxes, presbyopia is another of life's guarantees. This vision defect plagues most of us starting about age 45, as the lenses in our eyes lose the elasticity needed to focus on ...

Adaptive locomotion of artificial microswimmers

Bacteria display remarkable plasticity by exploiting mechanics in response to locally changing physical and chemical conditions. Compliant structures usually assist their taxis behavior to navigate inside complex and structured ...

Engineers copy snapping shrimp to produce underwater plasma

A team of mechanical engineers at Texas A&M University has found a way to generate plasma underwater by copying the snapping action of shrimp. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the group describes ...

3-D printing 100 times faster with light

Rather than building up plastic filaments layer by layer, a new approach to 3-D printing lifts complex shapes from a vat of liquid at up to 100 times faster than conventional 3-D printing processes, University of Michigan ...
