Managing Editor Dr Cobley of Wiley-VCH’s new journal ChemNanoMat visits iCeMS
On October 17, Dr Claire M Cobley, Managing Editor of Wiley-VCH’s new journal ChemNanoMat, paid a visit to Kyoto University’s Institute for Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS). This jounrnal was launched in June this year, for which iCeMS Director Susumu Kitagawa serves as one of the editorial board chairs. Wiley-VCH is a world renowned publisher that handles some leading scientific journals in the field of Chemistry and Materials Science, such as “Angewandte Chemie” and “Advanced Materials”.
Cobley had been wishing to visit Kyoto University as it had brought out number of significant research outcomes especially in the field of Materials Science. She also hoped to visit iCeMS, where Kitagawa serves as Director and which is known for its world top level research. The main purpose of her visit was to communicate information about the new journal to Kyoto University and iCeMS scientists, and to expand and deepen her connections with them.
Cobley first delivered a talk about an overall framework of the new journal. She then had a frank discussion with the researchers and exchanged candid opinions about strategic ways to have papers successfully accepted by journals, or what the editors look for in submitted papers.
“I was able to have a very constructive discussion with iCeMS scientists. I look forward to receiving many good papers coming out from them“, said Cobley on her visit to iCeMS.
