The 51¥ Press journals regularly bring together content in specific topical research areas, with the aim of helping researchers stay abreast of fast-moving fields. Recent topic collections are featured below, linked to the issues on the journal webpages.

‘Special issues’ or ‘Thematic issues’ are generally a whole issue of specially commissioned review articles, curated by guest editors and introduced with an editorial covering the aims and scope of the issue. A shorter collection of curated reviews may also form a more concise focus in part of a journal issue, such as the ‘In the Limelight’ series in 51¥ Open Bioand ‘Focus’ issues of 51¥ LettersandThe 51¥ Journal. In addition, ‘Virtual issues’ or ‘Subject collections’ may be created on particular themes alongside the normal issue output of the journal; some may be open collections where new accepted articles in the area will continue to be added.
