American Chemical Society Publishes Scientific Journals on the Internet

Article excerpt

Three of the American Chemical Society's most widely read scientific journals are now commercially available as Internet Journal Editions, according to a recent announcement by the organization. The launch of its Internet Journal Editions marks the American Chemical Society's pioneering move to embrace a new medium that has gained increased acceptance among members of the scientific community over the past few years.

The Journal of Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry, and the research papers of Environmental Science & Technology are available online for member and nonmember subscribers, combining the speed and worldwide reach of the Internet with high-quality scientific publishing.

"The speed and convenience of the Internet was clear years ago, but so was the danger of the rapid dissemination of unreliable science," said Robert Bovenschulte, director, publications division of the American Chemical Society. "Our Internet Journal Editions provide the same high-quality, peer-reviewed science that appears in our print journals, with the added convenience of the online format."

The Journal of Physical Chemistry publishes original experimental and basic research targeted to scientists on the physical chemistry of molecules, condensed phases, materials, and biomolecules. Internet edition prices for members are $75 for JPC A (Molecules) or JPC B (Materials); $140 for both sections; non-member subscriptions are $1,955.

Biochemistry investigates the rapidly changing arena where chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology interrelate. The Internet edition price for members is $137; nonmember subscriptions are $1,870. For The Journal of Physical Chemistry and Biochemistry, special prices are also available for subscribers who want to combine the Internet edition with a print subscription. …
