Summary

On 3 July 1880, “a weekly journal of scientific progress” published its first research articles under the banner Science. From that original print medium, the inaugural set of papers has been reprinted, photocopied, posted online, converted to PDF, and even etched in glass blocks to serve as special gifts. Being part of the vanguard is indeed a privilege, and opportunities to be one of the first are rare. For that reason, I proudly announce that Science Advances, a new open-access journal for all of the sciences, officially joins the Science family of journals (Science, Science Translational Medicine, and Science Signaling) and is now accepting submissions (go to www.scienceadvances.org). In February 2015, the inaugural papers will be released, heralding the start of something big in scope, reach, and influence.
