Some highly multidisciplinary journals, like Nature Communications, specify the field of each published article. When article fields are available for a majority of articles in a multidisciplinary journal, we create “subjournals” for each field, e.g., Nature Communications (Mathematics and Computing), Nature Communications (Social Sciences), Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) – Evolution. When you subscribe to a subjournal, you will only receive articles that the publisher has classified as belonging to that topic. This feature makes it easier for our users to avoid irrelevant articles. Although Nature and Science provide fields for some articles, the coverage is not comprehensive enough for us to create subjournals for these two journals.
Why are some journals listed multiple times, with journal names followed by different fields?
