Regional Research Portals

Regionally focused research portals support local scientific communities by acting as a pillar of accuracy and fact, and by gathering geographically specific research for an international audience.

What is a regional research portal?

Though modern science is built on contributions from every corner of the globe, geographical regions can struggle to gain wider attention for their research, or even communicate it effectively within the region. Nature Research regional portals are content destinations that collect and connect scientific activity from a region and make it freely accessible to a global audience.

How regional portals buoy regional science:

  • They share the latest research in English and the languages native to that area
  • They shine a light on regional science that might otherwise fly under the radar
  • They provide exposure for local researchers and a media outlet for regional writers who cover science
  • They deliver high-quality science research and writing, not just to scientists but to interested audiences eager for current information
  • They help combat misinformation about scientific discoveries
  • They inform policymakers and scientists about what is really happening on the ground

A Nature Research regional portal is a voice specific to the region it represents. It is a trusted resource that gives important science a home and helps deliver accurate information to both the scientific community and a science-minded public.

Examples of our research portals include:

Nature Italy: A standalone digital magazine focusing on research and issues of science policy in Italy, Nature Italy covers the activity of a contemporary center of research innovation and discovery in English and Italian.

Nature Middle East: Nature Middle East covers a diverse group of 18 nations, delivering a comprehensive array of scientific and medical research to the Arab-speaking world.

Nature India: A website of sweeping range and depth, Nature India is a go-to resource for everything related to Indian science, including the latest research, science news, events, and jobs in this epicenter of scientific activity.

These portals hint at the scope — and importance — of a regional science network that can convey research-based data accurately and clearly.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created some dislocation in conferences and other occasions for international scientists to exchange information. At the same time, COVID has confirmed digital media’s power to disseminate valid scientific information across international communities. A lack of access to accurate data can hinder the health and safety of communities, whereas a thriving forum for facts about scientific issues benefits everyone.

For scientists and general readers living in regions where impartial media institutions are not the standard, a Nature Research hub is an oasis of agenda-free information, solely interested in providing verified facts that can help people make decisions that affect their lives — and their communities.
