ACS Publications is proud to announce the launch of two new materials journals, ACS Applied Energy Materials, and ACS Applied Nano Materials, within the editorial purview of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. The new materials journals are a response to the growing importance of interdisciplinary materials research, with other new materials journals planned to follow at a later date.
ACS Applied Energy Materials will publish broadly in the area of materials for energy generation, storage, conversion, and sustainability, with a focus on research that reports novel applications of materials and devices. ACS Applied Nano Materials will publish research of an applied nature on functional nanostructured materials, including the design, synthesis or fabrication, characterization, and properties of the materials.
ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces Editor-in-Chief Kirk Schanze will oversee the new journals. The journals’ editorial direction will be led by two deputy editors, who bring specialized expertise in the journals’ respective fields.
The Deputy Editor of ACS Applied Energy Materials is Prof. Gerald J. Meyer, Professor & Vice Chair of Diversity, as well as the Deputy Director of the DOE Energy Frontier Research Center on Solar Fuels at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prof. Meyer has served as an Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces since 2012. Read more about his research.
The Deputy Editor of ACS Applied Nano Materials is Prof. T. Randall Lee, the Cullen Distinguished University Chair and Associate Dean for Research at the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Houston. Prof. Lee has served as an Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces since 2010. Read more about his research.
