AJE’s top 10 resources for researchers in 2017

2017 was an exciting year for research! Discoveries and breakthroughs which hold great promise for society were made, and researchers across the globe contributed significantly to many their areas of study.

To begin, researchers successfully devised a solar-powered machine that can extract water from air with humidity levels as low as 20%. This is already powerful technology, and as it develops, it could be used as a clean water solution for communities around the globe.

Researchers also published information about a study in which they successfully and safely altered disease-causing genes. As researchers continue to build on this new discovery, it could help alleviate many diseases and could positively change the medical course for people and their families. Other breakthroughs in science range from developments in artificial intelligence to launching into space with recycled rockets.

2017 was also a great year for the AJE team! We kicked it off by participating in the March for Science rallies (members from our team pictured below). We had the opportunity to continue working with fantastic researchers around the globe and exceed the 500,000 count for all the papers that AJE has edited.
