We are pleased to announce the inaugural Emerging Investigators themed collection of Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers.

Emerging Investigators themed collection

Deadlines for submissions: 31 October 2015

This special collection is dedicated to researchers who are in the early stages of their independent academic career.

A broad range of subjects will be covered — studies falling into the scope of the journal are all welcome, especially interdisciplinary researches between inorganic chemistry and relevant areas, such as nano science, materials, energy, biochemistry, etc.

Research Articles and Reviews are considered for publication —. If you are interested in contributing a Review, please contact the Editorial Office for further information.

This Emerging Investigators collection will be a web-based thematic issue — Articles will be published in the most recent regular issue to enable timely distribution of the work; in the meanwhile, papers are being assembled as a web theme on the journal homepage to highlight their contribution to the special topic.

We hope this themed collection will feature many up-and-coming, early-career scientists whose work has the potential to influence future directions in science or result in new and exciting developments.

If you are interested in contributing to the themed collection, please mention the intention in “Comments to Editors” upon online submission.
