CSR Primer

The Chemical Society Reviews Editorial Board is proud to announce a collection of Tutorial Reviews on some of the most cutting-edge, exciting research in the chemical sciences. This is an excellent resource or ‘primer’ for students, to help them learn more about various topics of investigation and to provide additional guidance in the next steps of their career.

This fall, students around the world will begin their graduate studies looking for that perfect match for their doctoral studies. Students often find the process of identifying a research topic and an advisor a stressful and uncertain process. Understandably, many students are only versed in the fundamentals of chemistry from their undergraduate coursework, with a limited knowledge of what constitutes the state-of-the-art in chemical research.  With this in mind, the Chemical Society Reviews Editorial Board thought it would be timely to provide a collection of Tutorial Reviews on some of the most cutting-edge, exciting research in the chemical sciences.  The Board sees this as a resource or ‘primer’ for students, to help them learn more about various topics of investigation and to perhaps aid them in their decision making process.  To all the new graduate students, the Editorial Board and staff of Chemical Society Reviews would like to extend our congratulations to you on the next stage of your education and we hope this collection might provide some additional help in informing you about what might be the best path for your research interests.
