We are delighted to welcome Professor Tom Welton, Imperial College London, UK, as the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of RSC Sustainability, a new open access journal publishing solution-focused research to solve sustainability challenges.

 

“With UNEP’s decision the create a Science-Policy Interface for Chemicals and Waste in March 2022, the time is ripe for the creation of RSC Sustainability. I believe this new journal has the potential to become the first choice for the publication of solutions-focussed research that informs this SPI, and, beyond this, welcome all chemical science contributions to enable any of the Sustainable Development Goals.”

 

Learn more about our new Editor-in-Chief

Tom Welton is Professor of Sustainable Chemistry at Imperial College London. He has published over 150 papers and has received several awards, including various lectureships, was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC, 2007) and Officer in the Order of the British Empire (OBE, 2017). From 2020 to 2022 he served as president of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is a vocal champion of inclusion and diversity in the chemical sciences.

 

His research focusses on Sustainable and Green Chemistry, aiming to make related industries more environmentally and economically sustainable. Throughout his career his work has focussed on the use of ionic liquids with uses in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. He is interested in the fundamental properties of ionic liquids and how they can be used as alternative solvents or electrolytes.

Announcing three new journals: EES Catalysis, RSC Sustainability and Sustainable Food Technology

Committed to sustainability, created for you.

The Royal Society of Chemistry is committed to supporting the chemical science community in solving global sustainability challenges. As a signatory of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Publishers Compact, we are dedicated to helping achieve the UN’s SDG goals by 2023 as well as helping you and your discoveries make the world a better place. Therefore, as part of our ongoing commitment to addressing global challenges, we are announcing three new Gold Open Access journals, each with a sustainability focus.

 

EES Catalysis publishes high quality research on energy and environmental catalysis, and delivers the same impact and influence that researchers associate with our Energy & Environmental Science brand. As a multidisciplinary platform, it will cover catalysis across chemistry, materials science, engineering and beyond. Find out more and sign up to e-Alerts here.

 

RSC Sustainability welcomes research from all subject areas that are dedicated to solving sustainability challenges for a better, greener future. It also complements the Royal Society of Chemistry’s premier sustainability journal, Green Chemistry. Find out more and sign up to e-Alerts here.

 

Sustainable Food Technology, a companion journal to Food & Function, publishes high quality sustainable research on food engineering and technologies. Key topics include food preservation methods, shelf life and the creation of greener packaging. Find out more and sign up to e-Alerts here.

 

Dr Emma Wilson, Royal Society of Chemistry Director of Publishing, said: “While the scale and seriousness of these many sustainability challenges is undoubtedly urgent, we know that scientists from around the globe are already working on innovative, ground-breaking solutions, working together and sharing ideas. I’m enthusiastic about our Royal Society of Chemistry journals taking this important step to enable them to further their work.”
Professor Tom Welton, President of the Royal Society of Chemistry, said: “As a global society we are facing urgent and pressing challenges, from rising sea levels to impacts on food production. There is increasing pressure on scarce resources such as the precious elements required for medicine, technology, and sustainable energy, and we’re facing unprecedented levels of pollution in the natural environment and in our air. That’s why I’m proud that the Royal Society of Chemistry is leading the way by expanding their sustainability journals portfolio with these three new journals – providing a home for even more cutting-edge research to help tackle the urgent issues facing us all.”

All three new journals will be Gold Open Access from launch, offering readers no barriers to reading the published work, ensuring research can reach a global readership. Additionally, all article processing charges (APCs) are waived until-2025. All journals will open for submissions in summer 2022.

Open Chemical Science: Online Events

CICAG is organising a series of online webinars and workshops with the theme “Open Chemical Science”. These events will examine the opportunities, benefits, risks and likely future developments associated with open chemistry.

 

Globally significant progress has been made towards open sharing of information. This drive to share data, software and publications is enabling the development of a more inclusive society. However, the myriad of solutions, repositories and information sources is at the same time complicating the landscape. Many questions are still under discussion, for example:

  • What are the benefits and opportunities of open chemistry?
  • How will the open research environment evolve?
  • What are the implications for users of open repositories?
  • What sources can be trusted?
  • How will information be managed and retrieved?
  • Will open research lead to competitive disadvantage?

 

The themed two-hour webinars scheduled throughout the week of 9-13 November are as follows:

Revealing our new journal Environmental Science: Atmospheres

Linking fundamental and applied atmospheric science

Connecting communities and inspiring new ideas

We are excited to announce our new open access journal, Environmental Science: Atmospheres, a cross-disciplinary journal spanning the entirety of Earth’s atmosphere. Using our fresh, transparent approach, we will help to open up boundaries, inspire innovation and forge collaborations between communities working on outdoor and indoor environment science.

“Different communities use different languages, even within science and engineering; physicists use a different language than chemists who use a different language than meteorologists.

We are creating a forum to share the newest developments and advances in our understanding of the atmosphere with an audience including environmental engineers, chemists, physicists, and policy makers.

We are providing a space where we can talk together and open collaborations between our communities.”

Editorial Board Chair Neil Donahue, Carnegie Mellon University
(researcher and leader in atmospheric chemistry)

Sign up to receive news and issue alerts.

 

Illuminate your research – publish with us

We are inviting contributions from fields spanning the entirety of Earth’s atmosphere, including atmosphere–biosphere, atmosphere–ocean, and atmosphere–surface interactions as well as indoor air and human health effects research.

Join us as one of the authors included in our first ever issue in early 2021. Submit an article now.

 

Gold open access from issue 1

Environmental Science: Atmospheres will be gold open access from launch, offering authors a trusted, reliable option for publishing their work open access. As a gold open access journal, there are no barriers to accessing content and your research article will reach a global readership.

The journal also offers Transparent Peer Review, where authors have the option to publish reviewers’ comments, the editor’s decision letter, and authors’ response alongside the article.

We are waiving all article processing charges until mid-2023 so your work will receive maximum visibility at no cost to you.

 

We hope to see your name among our first submissions.
