Professor Jorge Barros Velázquez joins Sustainable Food Technology as Editor-in-Chief

We are delighted to welcome Professor Jorge Barros Velázquez, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, as the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of Sustainable Food Technology a new open access journal publishing sustainable approaches to food processing and engineering.

 

“We need to find the solutions to our biggest challenges in food production and processing. Sustainable Food Technology acts as a forum for scientists worldwide who wish to produce better, safer foods that respect our environment. I am more than delighted to be part of this exciting project.”

Learn more about our new Editor-In-Chief

Since 2007, Jorge Barros Velázquez has been a professor of food technology at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Department of Analytical Chemistry, Nutrition and Food Science. Jorge obtained his PhD in food microbiology in 1992. His post-doc experience includes the National Food Biotechnology Centre (Cork, Ireland) and the Institute for Marine Research (Vigo, Spain). Since 1992, Jorge has been involved in the direction of more than 30 scientific projects on food microbiology, food technology and food safety – and has participated in another 15 projects.

 

Jorge’s research interests include the development of novel preservation tools for seafood and other animal foods, such as the use of lactic acid bacteria and their bacteriocins, natural organic acids, essential oils, algae extracts or seafood wastes, as well as active food packaging strategies.

Professor Tom Welton joins RSC Sustainability as Editor-in-Chief

 

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. Tom also works on the clean synthesis and processing of biomass-derived polymers to replace petrochemical-based plastics and understanding how ionic liquids can play a role in making these processes more sustainable.

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.
