The story of a unique experiment
On May 21, 2010, ChemistryViews.org was launched in Paris during a spectacular symposium with four Nobel laureates and many other leading scientists. ChemistryViews started that day with around 50 articles and a live broadcast of the event.
Not only was its start unique and visionary, so was the idea itself: 16 European chemical societies from Sweden to Portugal and from Poland to The Netherlands joined together to inform, educate, inspire, and connect chemists of all ages from around the world, from all fields, and from all generations. Under the auspices of ChemPubSoc Europe, they had already gained experience in publishing high-quality peer-reviewed journals such as Chemistry – A European Journal. However, starting an online portal with a companion magazine similar to national membership magazines was a different story.
