New Journal Announcements
ACS announced today that Christopher W. Jones, Ph.D., of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will be the inaugural editor-in-chief for JACS Au.
Jones has served as editor-in-chief of ACS Catalysis since its founding in 2010, a journal that attracted 70,712 citations and received a Journal Impact Factor™ of 12.350 in 2019. As ACS Catalysis’ first editor-in-chief, Jones has experience leading a new journal to the top of its field. Jones received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 1999 and joined the Georgia Tech faculty in 2003. There, his research group focuses on catalysis and capture of carbon dioxide from the air.
ACS will launch nine new ACS Au journals in 2021. Each new journal will publish research in specific areas of chemistry and will be fully open access. The suite of titles will be led by a new editor-in-chief and will collaborate closely with the established hybrid and open access publications across the ACS portfolio to maintain the high standards for which ACS journals are renowned. The titles will meet the publishing needs of researchers who choose to publish in fully open access journals or are required by their funders to publish in completely open access journals.
All articles published in JACS Au and the suite of nine ACS Au journals will be made open access via a CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND license.
