Chemistry—An Asian Journal Says "G'day" to The Royal Australian Chemical Institute Inc.

The Asian Chemical Editorial Society (ACES) and Wiley-VCH proudly announce that the Royal Australian Chemical Institute Inc. (RACI) has joined ACES and has become a co-owning society of Chemistry—An Asian Journal in August 2007. All parties are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation. Chemistry—An Asian Journal now is co-owned by eight chemical societies:

  • The Royal Australian Chemical Institute Inc.
  • The Chinese Chemical Society
  • The Hong Kong Chemical Society
  • The Chemical Research Society of India
  • The Chemical Society of Japan
  • The Korean Chemical Society
  • The Singapore National Institute of Chemistry
  • The Chemical Society Located in Taipei, China.

In addition, Chemistry—An Asian Journal is supported by the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (German Chemical Society) and the Editorial Union of Chemical Societies (EUChemSoc). ACES and EUChemSoc mutually support one another, for example in the publication of their journals Chemistry—An Asian Journal and Chemistry—A European Journal. EUChemSoc is the European counterpart of ACES and consists of 14 national chemical societies.

Chemistry—An Asian Journal has just entered its second year, and the first 12 issues have seen the publication of 171 top articles on 1724 pages. By comparison, just a dozen years ago Chemistry—A European Journal had only 115 articles in a little over 1000 pages in its first 12 issues. "The journal will continue to publish the best work from all around the world. Its international impact can be gauged by the feedback from authors and readers, which has been overwhelming and positive." Further thoughts on the developments in the journal over the last year and how this mirrors general trends in chemistry publishing can be found in an Editorial by Ryoji Noyori, Nobel Laureate and Chairman of the Editorial Board of Chemistry—An Asian Journal.

RACI, founded in January 1917, is both the qualifying body in Australia for professional chemists and a learned society promoting the science and practice of chemistry. RACI has over 6000 members and was granted a Royal Charter in 1932. It is concerned with the teaching and practice of chemistry and with the application of chemistry in industry, academia and government authorities. Thus, it represents and caters for the professional needs of all chemists, providing various activities and services that encompass the profession of chemistry in Australia.

The aim of ACES, which was founded in 2005, is to establish a modern and global publishing concept to support local research on the one hand, and to develop the advancing internationalization of the research landscape on the other. ACES also strives to prevent unethical behavior in publishing by way of internationally recognized regulations.
