Elsevier Announces Partnership with Chinese Society of Particuology

China Collection expands on ScienceDirect

Amsterdam, 13 December 2006 – Elsevier is pleased to announce a cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Sciences to publish China Particuology, the only English bi-monthly publication on the science and technology of particles in China. This development further strengthens the collaboration with the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences, launched in 2005 as part of the Chinese Journal Cooperation Program, to distribute high-quality Chinese research to an international audience.

The journal is sponsored by the Chinese Society of Particuology, whose members come from hundreds of universities, research institutions and production enterprises working on particles in China and abroad. The international editorial board is represented by high-ranking Chinese and foreign scientists dedicated to the dissemination of new particle research achievements.

The Journal is supported by an international editorial board, and guest editors of recent special issues have included Professor J. Werther, Technical University Hamburg-Harburg and Professor H. Bi, University of British Columbia.

"Over the past three years we have worked hard to create a high-quality journal with international content and an active editorial board" commented Editor-in-Chief Mooson Kwauk of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. "Apart from China, we regularly publish contributions from the USA, Germany, UK and other countries. However, we were still missing a platform to reach a worldwide audience. We are very happy that ScienceDirect now offers us the chance to reach our peers all over the world."

Elsevier Publisher Louise Morris added "We are delighted that the Chinese Society of Particuology has selected Elsevier as its publishing partner to expand dissemination and advance development of China Particuology as a leading title in the field of particle science and technology. The Journal will be included in the ScienceDirect China Collection which aims to promote the availability of prominent Chinese science technology and medical journals on an international level."
