ABS Trust: Gordon F. Kirkbright and Edward Steers Bursary Awards, 2023

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that assists a promising early career scientists of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general.

Owing to the generosity of one of our former trustees, an eminent atomic spectroscopist, Professor Edward B.M. Steers, we are now able to award an annual Edward Steers bursary, in addition to the long standing Gordon Kirkbright bursary, to similarly assist a promising early scientist engaged in or utilising analytical spectroscopic techniques. The ABS Trust defines early career as being either a student, or an employee in a non-tenured academic post or in industry, within 5 years of award of PhD excluding career breaks. The same conditions apply to each bursary.

Applications are invited for both the 2023 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary and the 2023 Edward Steers Bursary. 

Although both funds are administered by the ABS Trust, the Kirkbright award is not restricted to spectroscopists, but is open to all involved with or utilising analytical science-based techniques.

Applicants to complete the following online form by the deadline for completion is 30th November 2023

Visit the ABS Trust website for more details or contact abstrustuk@gmail.com with any questions

Celebrating 25 years of PCCP

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is a journal for high quality research in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. As PCCP is co-owned by 19 chemistry, physical chemistry and physics societies from around the world, you can reach a wider readership when you publish in this journal. Each Owner Society is committed to delivering a trusted and valuable experience to the scientific community.

This year, we’re celebrating the 25th volume of PCCP. A lot has changed since our first issue – PCCP was launched by four international chemistry and physical chemistry societies, but over the years, another 15 learned societies joined this journal. In 2023, our community is now represented by an internationally renowned editorial board, comprising of 14 associate editors carefully selected by our 19 Owner Societies. With their support, we have published 45,000 articles from over 120 countries to date.

A quick look at the difference from 1999 to 2023:

“I was thrilled to be involved in the launch of PCCP and to be working in partnership with the four founding societies and their member communities. At launch, there was much excitement for PCCP to become the one umbrella journal for the publication of the best research in all fields within physical chemistry and chemical physics. From the very first issue, PCCP received amazing support from authors, reviewers and readers, and I am proud to have had a role in helping the community to establish this unique and multidisciplinary journal.”
Susan Weatherby, Launch Editor for PCCP in 1999

What does the future hold?

PCCP has always been a home for work from across the breadth of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry, in both experimental and theoretical fields. Based on our experience with computational and quantum chemistry, PCCP now warmly welcomes research in the areas of quantum computing, machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence.

You can now read and publish tutorial reviews in PCCP. Learn about the first PCCP tutorial review, written by 2023 Tilden Prize winner Julie MacPherson and colleagues. If you have a great idea for a tutorial review, please visit our homepage for further information.

We have recently published some exceptional themed collections, and we have open calls for new themed collections on topics from “Molecular dynamics in the gas phase” through to “Physical chemistry of the energy transition”.

In 2024, we invite you to join us for the PCCP 25th anniversary symposium in Amsterdam on 1–2 May. The programme features internationally renowned speakers from our editorial and advisory boards, as well as the PCCP Owner Societies. It will be a chance for you to network with the community, be part of some exciting discussions, and celebrate 25 years of PCCP.

Discover more about PCCP in our video and explore our latest issue.

Celebrating our Perspective ‘DFT exchange: sharing perspectives on the workhorse of quantum chemistry and materials science’

A stylised graphic showing a map of the world with various pins showing locations of the 70 authors of the Perspective article, overlaid on top of the graphic is an illustration of a conference table with people sitting around it, the conference table is a in the shape of a globe.

Featured on the cover of Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics Issue 47, and selected as a PCCP HOT Article, “DFT exchange: sharing perspectives on the workhorse of quantum chemistry and materials science” is already receiving a great deal of attention in the community.

 

The perspective, the first of its kind in PCCP, and the first such on Density Functional Theory (DFT), takes the form of a roundtable discussion featuring 70 authors, many of whom are active members of PCCP’s Advisory Board. The Perspective covers the history, present status, and future of density-functional theory (DFT), and adds up to an impressive 85 pages, with 777 references. Readers are encouraged to continue the exchange of views by contacting the authors.

 

Of the 26 total questions discussed by the authors, the topics ranged from the nebulous “What is DFT?” to the more specific “What format should workshops and conferences take in the future?”.

 

An example of the at times lively debate regarding DFT comes at question 3.8, “What has DFT told us about the real world?”, in which some authors such as Vincenzo Barone even question “what is the meaning of the “real world”?”.

A black and white image of Prof. Robert Jones Co-author Dr. Robert Jones (Peter Grünberg Institut, Germany) noted “I participated in (and survived) the struggle of a small number of scientists to convince the overwhelming majority of theoretical chemists that density-functional calculations could play an important role in chemistry,” and expressed his hope that this rejection of unfamiliar ideas would not be repeated in the density-functional community.

Many authors noted that methods for the teaching and sharing of information about DFT have diversified during the ongoing pandemic and spoke favourably of the new mixture of hybrid online and in person options for workshops and conferences.

The myriad benefits of this, including reducing carbon footprints, improving accessibility, and benefitting scientists with caring responsibilities, were all noted favourably during the discussion.

In the spirit of the project, we asked some of the co-authors of this landmark perspective to share their thoughts on its development and its unique round-table discussion format.

Co-author Dr. Simen Kvaal (University of Oslo, Norway) noted that many of the 70 authors are “world famous in the quantum chemistry community”

A black and white image of Prof. Tim Gould “It was a really pleasurable and unique opportunity to cover a breadth of DFT topics in a novel way,” said co-author Prof. Tim Gould (Griffith University, Australia), “The round table format forced me to think about some things in new ways and gave me a chance to see how others think, so was a valuable learning opportunity even prior to the final product.”

“I also consider it really valuable that the manuscript focused so much on theory, which doesn’t have the same “review”-style attention as DFT applications. From my personal perspective it was a good chance to clarify some misconceptions.”
