The Journal of Chemical Physics has started a call for papers for a special collection in honor of women in chemical physics and physical chemistry. Welcome are contributions from leading women researchers and papers dedicated to any woman or group of women in the field. Submission deadline is November 20, 2020.
PeerJ has announced five new open access journals in chemistry. The submission is already open and the new journals will launch with an extended period of free APC fees.
PeerJ offers an interesting open access business model, so authors pay for a lifetime publishing plan. The Max Planck Society covers the cost of an “Enhanced Publication Plan” for all Max Planck authors. The membership remains yours for life, even if you leave Max Planck Society. You will be identified by PeerJ based on your Max Planck email address. Alternatively, one-time APCs for Max Planck corresponding authors will be covered.
