'Science Robotics' is a new academic journal devoted to reporting new innovations in the field of robotics. There's no question that robotics have become a full-fledged area of scientific inquiry, and as such, it's about time that the scientific establishment has caught up. Science Robotics will be a way for scientists in all fields, and especially those studying robotics, to keep abreast of the most recent developments.

As the name of the journal suggests, Science Robotics is an imprint from the established 'Science' journal. While Science itself frequently covers robotics, the publication realized that stories about robotics were too common to remain in the broader journal that it sends out.

The first issue of Science Robotics was published today. It includes stories on a leaping robot developed by UC Berkeley researchers and an exoskeleton system that was able to restore motor function for a quadriplegic person.
