Here at the Royal Society of Chemistry we are constantly looking to improve our procedures to make things easier for our journal authors.
And we are glad to say that we can now offer free colour for all images and figures in all of our journals, in print and online.
We believe this will further improve the efficiency of our submission, editing and publication processes, and enhance the readers’ experience as well.
So that’s one more reason to choose to publish with us.
View this video to hear from international researchers on why they choose Royal Society of Chemistry journals.
The first articles for new journal Environmental Science: Nano are now available online.
Cutting-edge research on the effects of nanotechnologies on environmental and human health
Environmental Science: Nano publishes the latest work on nanomaterial interactions with biological and environmental systems, and the design and use of engineered nanomaterials for sustainability. It’s the only high impact journal dedicated to publishing environmental nanoscience papers and, as these first articles show, it is already attracting strong support and attention from the community.
A chemical free, nanotechnology-based method for airborne bacterial inactivation using engineered water nanostructures
Georgios Pyrgiotakis, James McDevitt, Andre Bordini, Edgar Diaz, Ramon Molina, Christa Watson, Glen Deloid, Steve Lenard, Natalie Fix, Yosuke Mizuyama, Yamauchi Toshiyuki, Joseph Brain and Philip Demokritou
Alterations of intestinal serotonin following nanoparticle exposure in embryonic zebrafish

If you’re an early-stage researcher undertaking an exciting scientific project, why not enter the 2014 SET for Britain competition for a chance to win up to £3000?
SET for Britain is an annual poster competition supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry along with other learned societies. The event aims to encourage and promote early-career scientists and engineers, as well as raising the profile of science and engineering within the Houses of Parliament.
There are five subject categories – biological and biomedical science, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics – and prizes are awarded in each category for the posters that best communicate high level science to a lay audience. The gold prize is £3,000, silver is £2,000 and bronze is £1,000.
Finalists will have the opportunity to present their research at the House of Commons Marquee on 17th March 2014, hosted by Andrew Miller MP, Chair of the Science and Technology Select Committee, where the prizes will be awarded and the overall winner will receive the Westminster medal.
The closing date for entries is Monday 20th December 2013. Find out more on our website.
The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Prizes and Awards recognise achievements by individuals, teams and organisations in advancing the chemical sciences. There are over 80 Prizes and Awards available covering all areas of the chemical sciences, with prize money of up to £5000 to be won.
The main categories are:
In addition, we have a new award this year, the Industrial Analytical Science Award, to recognise and celebrate the great contribution of analytical science in industry.

We look forward to meeting you!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Royal Society of Chemistry Symposium at the University of Edinburgh on 28th October.
After escaping the storms in the south of England, our team were ‘blown away’ by the warm welcome we received in Edinburgh.
We presented sessions on publishing, careers, education and communication and had some great discussions with students and staff, on topics ranging from open access publishing to working at the Royal Society of Chemistry and joining as a member.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to RSC education coordinator Margaret Ritchie for her enthusiasm and help both on the day and in the run up to the symposium.
Did you find the event useful? Please contact us with your feedback or leave your comments below.
