Highlights include an approach to identify 3D pores in packed particle systems, as well as reviews on ML for assessing the stability of materials and on autoencoders for molecule and drug design.


  • A female researcher working in a lab with a microscope and a laptop.

    To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, we talked to some (of the many) female researchers about their work, gender disparity in STEM, and the steps we can take to overcome these challenges.

  • An image that echoes the SDG logo and integrates the idea of analysis of data from the various goals.

    The year 2023 marks the mid-point of the 15-year period envisaged to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. In this Nature Portfolio Collection, you will find studies across different journals that assess progress or that showcase interventions that have made a difference. We also welcome submissions of studies framed in a similar way.

    Open for submissions
  • A plant growing out of a circuit board, representing computational tools’ promise for enabling a greener future.

    Check out our Focus that highlights the potential for computational tools to help address environmental challenges, including experts’ opinions on how these tools themselves can be improved to ensure a greener and more sustainable future.

  • Atomic-scale materials lattice with multiple elements, together with a network structure.

    Check out our Focus issue, in collaboration with Nature Materials, that highlights recent developments in the field of complex element coupling and brings together experts' opinions on the opportunities in both computational methods and experimental approaches.

Nature Computational Science is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.
