ChemPubSoc Europe Newsletter 9.

April 2015


Hibernation over the winter is apparently not possible in Weinheim, which is known for its mild climate! Instead the publishing house used the time to improve the communication with society partners. In January they welcomed two of our societies to their offices to discuss the collaboration and met with the four Presidents to discuss the portfolio of journals.

First Jan-Willem Toering from the Koninklijke Nederlandse Chemische Vereniging (KNCV, Royal Netherlands Chemical Society) – read more about his role as new director of the KNCV – met with editors and marketing colleagues at the ChemPubSoc Europe editorial offices at Wiley-VCH.

A week later, E. Peter Kündig (President), Alain De Mesmaeker (Vice President), and David Spichiger (Executive Director) from the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) were welcomed.


The Swiss Chemical Society Profile

The Journals under Review

Early in February, we, the four presidents of the ChemPubSoc Europe titles met with editorial and publishing representatives at the offices of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ, Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry) in Madrid to review and plan for the future.

National Issues of an International Organization

ChemPubSoc Europe is a truly unique publishing enterprise, having amalgamated their national journals to create a society-wide portfolio of journals. Of course, sometimes sentiments niggle that the national perspective has been blurred. But modern technology makes it possible to recreate this perspective.

NEW! View here which colleagues from Italy, France, the Czech Republic… or from your ChemPubSoc Europe society have articles just published in the journals on EarlyView. Also an important point: the more papers published from a specific country, the higher the royalties for that national society. See who supports your society when they publish their research!
