A 60-Year-Old Journal Reborn
The Israel Journal of Chemistry, which celebrated its 50th volume this year, has undergone a major transformation aimed at enhancing its international visibility and increasing its influence. This metamorphosis involved the translocation of the IJC from its previous publisher, Science From Israel, LPPLtd., to its new home at Wiley-VCH. At the same time, the IJC has become the official journal of the Israel Chemical Society. As of 2010, the IJC features a new cover format, new article layouts, conference reports, science news, online submission of manuscripts, Early View (online publication of individual articles in advance of issue publication), and many advantages that characterize the other top chemistry journals published by Wiley-VCH.
The IJC, which has a 60-year tradition of publishing seminal research results, is an international, strictly peer-reviewed forum for special issues on timely research topics in all fields of chemistry. Each topical issue is edited by one or several guest editors and primarily contains invited, short review articles of approximately 10 journal pages. Volume 50, 2010, representing a transition period, will comprise six issues, while all of the following volumes will consist of 12 issues.
Although the IJC does not accept independently submitted manuscripts, leading scientists worldwide are encouraged to consider becoming guest editors of future issues on specific topics at the forefront of the chemical sciences.
