The Transactions of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences and Affiliated Societies (TNAS) (ISSN 2379-8688) are published by the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. The objectives of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences are to further the work of scientists and to facilitate cooperation among them; to improve the effectiveness of science in the promotion of human welfare and environmental quality; to provide the opportunity for scientific research related to the problems of the ever-changing environment of the Great Plains; to increase public understanding and appreciation of the importance and promise of science in human progress; to stimulate science education, and to encourage young people to become involved in science, and to foster the interaction of business, industry, government, education, and the academic scientific community.
The TNAS was established in 1969 by the State Legislature of Nebraska during its eightieth session. In that session, Legislative Bill 776 provided funds to aid the Nebraska Academy of Sciences in the publication of scientific works submitted by Nebraska scientists. Volumes 1 and 2 of the Transactions were published under this arrangement, but Volume 3 was privately funded. Volumes 4-27 were published under the auspices of the Nebraska Department of Education with funds authorized by the State Legislature, except Volume 11, a special issue supported by a grant from the Peter Kiewit Charitable Trust. Beginning with Volume 28, support was from funds bequeathed to the Nebraska Academy of Sciences by C. Bertrand and Marian Othmer Schultz.
The TNAS is indexed in Biological Abstracts, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Fish and Fisheries Worldwide, and EBSCO. It is freely accessible through Digital Commons at http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/tnas/ hosted by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Starting with Volume 33, the TNAS will no longer be published in print form, and only be published on-line at this site. This will allow for on-line publication of accepted manuscripts in advance of the assembly of an entire volume.
The editor of the TNAS is selected by the Executive Committee of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. The current editors are Karen Murch-Shafer and Mark Schoenbeck, Department of Biology, University of Nebraska at Omaha. 6001 W. Dodge St., Omaha, Nebraska 68182-0040 firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
Aims and Scope
The TNAS publishes peer-reviewed results of original research by members of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences in good standing, either as full-length Research Articles or Short Communications, Letters to the Editor commenting on material previously published in the TNAS, and Novel Hypotheses, Reviews, and Perspectives on topics relevant to the objectives of the Academy. The TNAS especially welcomes submissions of manuscripts from members of the Academy that reflect original, previously unpublished research. These can be on any aspect of the basic or applied sciences or science education, or be related to the broader objectives of the mission of the Academy. Manuscripts should be written in a manner accessible to investigators representing diverse backgrounds in science, science education, and science policy.
