Abstract
We report the detection of four new extrasolar planets in orbit around the moderately active stars HD63765, HD 104067, HIP 70849, and HD 125595 with the HARPS Echelle spectrograph mounted on the ESO 3.6-m telescope at La Silla. The first planet, HD 63765 b, has a minimum mass of 0.64MJup, a period of 358 days, and an eccentricity of 0.24. It orbits a G9 dwarf at 0.94 AU. The second planet, HD 104067 b, is a 3.6 Neptune-mass-planet with a 55.8-day-period. It orbits its parent K2 dwarf, in a circular orbit with a semi-major axis of a=0.26AU. Radial velocity measurements present a ≈500-day-oscillation that reveals significant magnetic cycles. The third planet is a 0.77 Neptune-mass-planet in circular orbit around the K4 dwarf, HD 12595, with a 9.67-day-period. Finally, HIP 7849 b is a long-period (5< P <75 years) and massive planet of m sin i ≈3.5-15MJup that orbits a late K7 dwarf.

Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences

Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA) is a new but long anticipated research infrastructure with a national dimension. It embodies a bold but feasible vision for the development of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences in Portugal, taking full advantage and fully realizing the potential created by the national membership of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). IA resulted from the merging the two most prominent research units in the field in Portugal: the Centre for Astrophysics of the University of Porto (CAUP) and the Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics of the University of Lisbon (CAAUL). It currently hosts more than two-thirds of all active researchers working in Space Sciences in Portugal, and is responsible for an even greater fraction of the national productivity in international ISI journals in the area of Space Sciences. This is the scientific area with the highest relative impact factor (1.65 times above the international average) and the field with the highest average number of citations per article for Portugal.
