Fall MRS Boston: were you a winner?

It was great to meet old friends and new at the RSC Publishing booth at the 2012 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston last week. 

RSC Publishing boothAfter the positive feedback we received last year, we opted for another environmentally friendly cardboard booth. We had a range of top titles on display, including Energy & Environmental Science, Nanoscale and our new journal Biomaterials Science.

Lots of visitors were keen to learn more about Journal of Materials Chemistry, which, in 2013, continues as three journals: Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C

And, as always, our books proved popular, in particular our new Smart Materials book series and Chocolate as Medicine.

What are you doing on 25–30 November? If the answer is attending the Fall MRS meeting in Boston, then make sure you come and see us at booth #120.

RSC Publishing activities have evolved over recent years in response to the needs of the increasingly interdisciplinary community of materials scientists. This year is particularly significant as we have some brand new publications to showcase will be of real interest to you.

Our new journal, Biomaterials Science launches in January and will have free access for the first two years. The highly regarded Journal of Materials Chemistry is expanding and becoming three separate journals. And we launch the new RSC Smart Materials book series with the publication of the first book in the series – Janus Particle Synthesis, Self-Assembly and Applications. 

Staff on the stand will include our editors who will be delighted to meet you, and explain why RSC Publishing makes a good home for your materials science research. In attendance will be Liz Dunn, Managing Editor of Journal of Materials Chemistry, Soft Matter, Biomaterials Science and Polymer Chemistry; Philip Earis, Managing Editor of Energy & Environmental Science, Nanoscale and PCCP; and Merlin Fox and Leanne Marle, both Commissioning Editors, Books.

You can find out about Gold for Gold, our innovative initiative that rewards researchers at all institutions that subscribe to RSC Gold with credits to publish RSC journal papers free-of-charge, via Gold Open Access.

International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) 2011

After a successful introduction in 2010, the International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) is set to return in 2011. Continuing its support of the RSC flagship journal Chemical Science, this significant new global symposia series is ambitious in its scale and coverage.

The second three symposia, like ISACS 1-3, will be held on three continents, over three separate weeks and have already attracted support from some of the leading names in the chemical sciences.

– ISACS4: Challenges in Renewable Energy
– ISACS5: Challenges in Chemical Biology
– ISACS6: Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry

Professor Tianquan Lian, from Emory University, Atlanta, said about the ISACS2 meeting: “The scientific content of the conference was of the highest quality and the hospitality was just superb. I have already told my colleagues about this wonderful conference and the new journal”.

Each ISACS event will feature a single stream of plenary lectures complemented by oral presentations and extensive poster sessions with plenty of time dedicated to networking. The chance for young researchers to present their work alongside some of the leading and emerging names in the field is an opportunity not to be missed.
