The secret life of new journals
In an interview with editor Greta Heydenrych we explore new journals. Why and how they are created, what challenges they face in a modern publishing environment, and who they are intended to serve. With the leadership and support of excellent chairpersons, board members, and a diligent team of editors, ChemPubSoc Europe has welcomed three new journals to its portfolio since 2016: ChemPhotoChem, Batteries & Supercaps, and the newest addition ChemSystemsChem.
Sincere thanks from all of us at the publishing house!We look forward to working with you and for you in 2019, which will be a year full of initiatives to promote you and your exciting research. Join ChemPubSoc Europe for the IYPT2019,* ChemCatChem's 10th Anniversary, a celebration of women in STEM, and much more. Further information is available in the 2019 Editorials published in Issue 1 of each journal, which are free to read.
