Out of the Earth
Humanity is standing at the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and is ready to embrace the digital era. The diversification and specialization of natural science have contributed to re-shaping the society in which we live. Meanwhile, humanity is also facing emergent global challenges, including climate change, emerging infectious diseases, and socioeconomic inequality. The time is ripe to adopt innovative approaches to integrate various disciplines to tackle the issues of sustainable development worldwide.
As humankind unites into a global village (Figure 1), we have the opportunity to encourage innovation that builds on integration of research across disciplines. To promote interdisciplinary collaborations and highlight combined productivity, we have launched a new journal, The Innovation, to display inspiring multidisciplinary discoveries for the science community, to encourage researchers to focus on the nature of science and the core of the free scientific exploration.
