PCCP: a focus on Japan

ArigaPhysical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Katsuhiko Ariga as an Associate Editor of the journal.

Professor Ariga is the Director of Supermolecules Group at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan. His research covers supermolecular chemistry and surface science, including the boundaries between organic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, and materials chemistry.

PCCP is committed to publishing the best Japanese research in the broad fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. We have several leading Japanese scientists on our international Advisory Board: Asuka Fujii, Yasuhiro Iwasawa and Yoshiyasu Matsumoto.

So you can see for yourself the quality of work appearing in PCCP, we have selected some recent articles from authors based in Japan which are available to read for free for a limited period.

On behalf of Professor Ariga and all our Editorial Board, we invite you to submit your best work to PCCP.

The Royal Society of Chemistry has also recently opened an office in Toyko in the same building as the Chemical Society of Japan. You can read RSC CEO Dr Robert Parker’s speech from the official opening here .
