Royal Society of Chemistry acquires MarinLit

We announced some exciting news today: we signed an agreement on Tuesday 17th September to acquire MarinLit, a database dedicated to Marine Natural Products research. We are delighted with this acquisition. This database was established in the 1970’s by two MNP Professors John Blunt and Murray Munro at the University Of Canterbury in New Zealand. It was designed as an in-house system to fulfil the needs of the University of Canterbury Marine Group and over the last 25 years John, Murray and their colleagues at the University of Canterbury have developed the leading Marine Natural Product database, a powerful tool in support of the varied areas of MNP research.

We are very excited to welcome MarinLit into our portfolio. It is used by marine natural products scientists around the world and provides an excellent strategic fit with the rest of our publishing portfolio, expands our natural product portfolio which includes Natural Product Reports and Natural Product Updates, and will complement existing products such as ChemSpider.

We are looking forward to working with John and Murray over the next 30 months to manage this transition and continue to develop MarinLit’s future. We will continue to support and enhance MarinLit, our first development will be to produce a web based version, which will be ready in early 2014.

Environmental Science: Nano now open for submissions!

Submit nowGreat news: Environmental Science: Nano‘s Editorial Offices are now open!

Associate Editors James Hutchison (University of Oregon) and Gregory Lowry (Carnegie Mellon University) are welcoming submissions of high quality research on the interactions of nanomaterials with biological and environmental systems.

But what’s different about this journal?

Until now there has been no high impact society journal dedicated to publishing the latest findings on the interaction of nanomaterials with environmental and biological systems, which, as Editor-in-Chief Vicki Grassian puts it, ‘is an enormously important aspect of the development of sustainable nanotechnologies for improving human and environmental health’. Find out more about the scope

Why should you submit?

Environmental Science: Nano will be:

  • High impact – only publishing the most novel and exciting advances
  • A leader – the Editorial Board will drive scientific development, with the Associate Editors responsible for peer review and editorial decisions
  • Interdisciplinary – connecting scientists working in a range of areas, including chemistry, earth sciences, engineering, ecotoxicology and nanoscience
  • Internationally visiblefree access to all content published during 2014 and 2015, guaranteeing maximum exposure
  • Rapid – offering the speedy publication and excellent service for which the Royal Society of Chemistry is renowned

And unlike some other journals, Environmental Science: Nano has no page charges or page limits and it won’t charge you for using colour to enhance scientific understanding of your figures.

When should you submit? And how?

As soon as possible! Submit your manuscript via the website for the chance to be included in the high profile first issue.

RSC launches Environmental Science: Nano journal

Environmental Science: Nano coverWe are delighted to announce Environmental Science: Nano, a new peer-reviewed journal for high quality research on the interactions of biological and environmental systems with natural and engineered nanomaterials. Vicki Grassian, F. Wendell Miller Professor at the University of Iowa, USA, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief.

Announcing the launch, James Milne, Executive Director of RSC Publishing, said: “The interactions and consequences of nanomaterials in the natural environment are of interest to a diverse range of scientists.  Environmental Science: Nano is the only journal dedicated to publishing the latest findings in this field and we are delighted to be able to support the community by giving them a dedicated platform for their research.

“RSC Publishing is renowned for its quality, service, speedy publication and ground-breaking technology. I am confident that authors and readers will embrace Environmental Science: Nano, helping the RSC to further advance excellence in the chemical sciences for the benefit of science and humanity.”

Research published in Environmental Science: Nano will examine how nanomaterials enter, migrate and undergo transformations as they move through various environmental and biological media or systems. More information about the journal’s scope can be found on the website.

Vicki Grassian“There is currently no journal that focuses solely on the interaction of nanomaterials with environmental and biological systems, which is an enormously important aspect of the development of sustainable nanotechnologies for improving human and environmental health. For this reason, I am very pleased to be associated with Environmental Science: Nano as it aims to ensure that this research has a high quality home in a society journal.”   
Vicki Grassian, Editor-in-Chief, Environmental Science: Nano

The journal will shortly open for submissions via the website. The first issue will be published in late 2013. 

Make sure you don’t miss out on the latest journal news by registering your details to receive the regular Environmental Science: Nano newsletter. And you can follow the journal on Twitter @ESNano_RSC.

Did you know…..? Environmental Science: Nano is part of the RSC Publishing Environmental Science portfolio. Discover more today >
