Springer's New Project
Change the World! Papers to help save humanity?
A project naming must-read paper picked by
respective Editor-in-Chief of
representative learned journals has been launched.

"Ground-breaking paper that can help humanity and protect/preserve
our planet". Under this project our paper on the waterborne city entitled
'A new concept for the safety of low-lying land areas from natural
disasters' by Nakajima & Umeyama - carried on the pages of
"Journal of Ocean Engineering & Marine Energy" - was announced as one
of the hundred papers selected by the publisher, Springer.
