I just watched an on-line interview with Dave Allen, Gertz Regents Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas – Austin. Dave has started a new journal called Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering. It’s published by the American Chemical Society, which has an excellent reputation for both quality and reach. In this brief clip from the full interview, Dave explains why now is the right time for the new journal.
This interview gave me an idea for ISSST2013 that Dave agreed to do. I want to organize a panel discussion with Editors-in-Chief of new sustainability-related journals and books. The panel will help the editors of these publications communicate with prospective authors and readers, and it will help the authors understand the scope of the new journal and how the review processes are structured.
There’s no shortage of new journals to choose from when thinking of editors to invite. Nevertheless, you may nominate someone that you’d like to see on the panel simply by posting a reply on this blog.
