Nature Communications is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Nature Publishing Group since 2010. The editor in chief is Lesley Anson.[1][2][3][4] It is multidisciplinary in scope, with coverage that includes all topics in physics, chemistry, earth sciences and biology.

The online-only journal is specifically designed to publish across all disciplines in the natural sciences, and therefore to also fill in gaps for research articles where there is no dedicated journal available in the Nature Publishing Group journals. For example coverage of this journal includes developmental biology, plant sciences, microbiology, ecology and evolution, palaeontology and astronomy. Cross-disciplinary research such as biophysics, bioengineering, chemical physics and environmental science, are also published. However, works from all individual disciplines are considered for publication.[2]
