Nature India Annual Volume 2020 is out : Indigenus
The year 2020 has been marked by a global pandemic. Over the long and difficult year, illness and death came in tragic waves, testing the limits of health care systems, especially in countries with limited resources. In India, one of the worst affected countries, the outbreak continues into 2021.
But the positive outcome was the victory of science. In record time, scientists have sequenced the genome of the virus and its variants, created affordable diagnostic and therapeutic solutions, and produced multiple vaccines and drug candidates to control the epidemic. We have covered the epidemic in India and the Indian subcontinent in depth through the lens of science. In addition to our normal business press coverageWe have released two special issues on the COVID-19 crisis in India – one on how it works The epidemic was affecting Life in a country of 1.3 billion people, the other is affordable ميس engineering solutions It is being hastily developed by Indian scientists to counter the virus. In our quest to disseminate reliable information during a global public health emergency, Nature India pages are prominently filled with information on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
Meanwhile, despite challenges posed by a series of lockdowns and funding issues, science in other disciplines not linked to the pandemic has continued to thrive. One criticism of science publishers and scientific journals has been that their significant involvement with the pandemic (public health, medicine, virology and epidemiology) has negated other disciplines of science during 2020. So, in this annual volume, we highlight Nature India’s coverage of all science, efforts which continued quietly until 2020.
The Himalayan biodiversity region, which extends across the borders of many countries in Asia, including India and China, offers huge potential for collaborative scientific research. However, the rugged terrain and geopolitical conflict in the region have created obstacles to a common research climate. Our cover story tells of the growing call by researchers in the two countries to transcend political differences and make the Himalayas a center for scientific collaboration. Migratory birds from all over the region coming to India and the need for herons to protect them have also been highlighted in this case.
The country is examining the challenges and opportunities of an ambitious “one country, one subscription” policy that aims to make scientific knowledge freely available to all in the country. We analyze the advantages of this proposed plan.
The pandemic is not far from the immediate awareness of any of the world’s population, and our annual photo competition on the topic has brought images inspired by this era, where masks, sanitation, immunization and innovative solutions to health needs are paramount, the focus of our daily lives
