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

A unique not-for-profit society partnership between the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) will deliver a collection of journals that combine high quality content and fast publication with trusted values of society publishing.
The Frontiers journals aim to publish the very best research from China, Asia and the rest of the world to an international audience. This collaboration celebrates a new phase in scientific growth, and will provide researchers with unparalleled opportunities for global visibility and international collaboration.
An integral part of the development of each journal is collaboration with a top Chinese institute in the relevant field. These partner institutes will bring prestige and scientific knowledge to the enterprise. The first two journals and their partner institutes are:
Each Frontiers journal will be jointly owned by CCS, RSC and the relevant partner institute, with each owner bringing their expertise to the project.
The two journals will publish their first issues in 2014. Other journals from core chemistry areas will follow in the coming months and years. Ultimately the aim is for the Frontiers portfolio to become a leading international journal series for the chemical sciences community.
Here at the RSC, one of our most important objectives is to foster and encourage the growth and application of (chemical) science by the dissemination of chemical knowledge.
That’s why we’re delighted to be involved in Research4Life, which helps us disseminate our high quality journal articles to researchers in developing countries.
Research4Life is the collective name given to a series of public-private partnerships that offer health, agriculture and environmental research for free or at low cost to developing countries.
Around 6000 institutions are registered for access to publications through Research4Life. Partly thanks to this improved access, scientific research output from developing countries has increased dramatically in recent years.
That’s great news, not just for those developing countries but for the entire science community.
Chemistry – it makes a world of difference.
