Open access chemistry journal
A new open access outlet for chemists' peer reviewed research was launched today. Chemistry Central Journal. Publisher BMC says, the journal is the first international open access journal covering all of chemistry and will publish its first issue early in 2007.
Bryan Vickery, speaking today at the journal's launch being held during the ACS meeting, said, “I am delighted by the number of noted chemists and scientists who have agreed to join the Editorial Advisory Board of the journal from the outset." Among them is 1996 Nobel laureate Robert Curl. "I think open access journals are a great idea and am delighted to join this venture as a member of the Editorial Advisory Board," he said.
