What is Frontiers' and Nature Publishing Group’s relationship on Loop?

Nature Publishing Group and Frontiers have been discussing an integrated cross-platform research network for some time.  Nature Publishing Group is the first partner to integrate Loop functionality, on nature.com.

Nature Publishing Group supports its authors to build profiles on the Loop academic research network, on an opt-in basis.  Loop profiles will be linked to authors listed on both nature.com and frontiersin.org.
