ChemPubSoc Europe is proud to announce that from today it becomes Chemistry Europe. It is unveiling a new identity and a renewed purpose, fit for the future of chemistry and of publishing.
Founded 25 years ago with the creation of Chemistry A European Journal, now the societies’ flagship publication, Chemistry Europe is an association of 16 European chemical societies, representing over 75,000 chemists.
The redefining of our core values and visual representation of our identity has been in motion since June 2018, driven by a team made up of stakeholders from our societies, our Council and from our publishing partner Wiley-VCH. During the project, researchers and society members were asked about what they value and what they need from their scientific community, learned societies and scholarly journals: the result is Chemistry Europe.
‘To ensure we continue to grow our successful publishing partnership into the future, we have been working together, to redefine our identity and to reflect on our core values and mission. Our aim is to maximise the impact of Chemistry Europe and its journals now and into the future by sharing the broadest range of quality chemistry research to researchers and practitioners across the globe.’ Jan-Willem Toering, Director of KNCV, the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society, and member of the Chemistry Europe Council.
‘Our 16 journals are at the heart of what we do and what we stand for, so to be launching their new identity is a landmark occasion for us. It clearly showcases the journals as a family, encompassing a very broad range of chemistry disciplines, offering vital research to address global issues such as climate change and energy consumption.’ Professor Dr Wolfram Koch, Executive Director of GDCh, the German Chemical Society, and member of the Chemistry Europe Council.
‘We are delighted to have worked so closely with the societies on this project and feel privileged to have been publishing partners for 25 years. We move forwards together ready to embrace the open future of science, chemistry and publishing.’
Guido Herrmann, VP and Managing Director, Wiley-VCH.
