Elsevier and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics/Chinese Academy of Sciences close publishing agreement
Amsterdam, 28 June 2005 - Elsevier and the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics/Chinese Academy of Sciences, have reached a publishing agreement for the Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry. As of 2006, Elsevier will publish the journal on ScienceDirect and take care of the fulfilment of the international institutional print subscriptions. The journal will also be covered in Elsevier’s EI Compendex.
The Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry ( www.bjb.dicp.ac.cn/jngc/jngc.htm) functions as a medium for reporting original research papers dealing with topics in the fields of natural gas chemistry, C1 chemistry, lower hydrocarbons chemistry as well as hydrogen energy sources. The aim of the Journal is to transmit new information to readers who are scientific and technical workers of related research organizations and enterprises, as well as staff members, graduates and senior students of university departments of chemistry and chemical engineering, especially to those who are engaging in the chemistry and chemical processes of natural gas, petroleum and coal.
The Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry was launched in 1992 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and is edited by the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics and the Chengdu Institute of Organic Chemistry. The Editors-in-Chief are Professor Xinhe Bao from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, and Professor Alexis T. Bell from University of California, Berkeley.
The Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry will be marketed alongside Elsevier’s current chemical engineering and catalysis portfolio which consists of some 30 journal titles including Chemical Engineering Science and Journal of Catalysis.
“Elsevier and ScienceDirect offer the expertise, resources and global presence to help us to increase the visibility of the Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry globally,” comments Professor Bao, Editor-in-Chief.
“Elsevier is extremely pleased to be able to partner with the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in helping the Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry to realise its full potential, as well as significantly increasing its visibility for future potential authors and readers worldwide,“ comments Patrick Jackson, Publishing Director for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Elsevier.
Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP)/Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is a famous multidisciplinary institute engaging in both fundamental and applied research in chemistry and chemical engineering, especially with strong application for technological development. Many of its achievements have made important contributions in national economic reconstruction. There are more than 600 staff including about 80 professors at DICP. Twelve distinguished scientists of DICP have been elected as Members of the CAS, and two scientists have been elected as Members of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Three scientific journals including Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry are currently edited by DICP.
