ACS Omega Publishes Over 1,000 Open Access Articles in 2017

ACS Omega published its 1,000th article of 2017 in late December. The article, “Indolizine-Based Scaffolds as Efficient and Versatile Tools: Application to the Synthesis of Biotin-Tagged Antiangiogenic Drugs,” marks a milestone in the journal’s growing prominence and popularity which ended 2017 with 1,008 published articles.

The 1,000th article describes the design and optimization of polyfunctional scaffolds based on a fluorescent indolizine core derivatized with various orthogonal groups. The paper details the creation of a new biotin-modified scaffold convenient to prepare biotin-tagged drugs for cellular targets identification using proteomics analysis.

The article’s nine authors are Marie Arvin-Berod, Agnès Desroches-Castan, Simon Bonte, Sabine Brugière, Yohann Couté, Laurent Guyon, Jean-Jacques Feige, Isabelle Baussanne, and Martine Demeunynck, working out of Université Grenoble Alpes in France. Some of the paper’s authors are publishing their first work in an ACS publication. Others have a decades-long history of publishing in ACS journals as diverse as Analytical Chemistry, Bioconjugate Chemistry, the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, The Journal of Organic Chemistry, and The Journal of Physical Chemistry B.

ACS Omega launched in 2016, as an open-access global publication for chemistry and interfacing areas of science. The journal publishes peer-reviewed research rapidly, without attempting to evaluate its immediate significance. Instead, it aims to advance the frontiers of the chemical sciences by accelerating the spread of new ideas. An international team of four co-editors leads the journal. The editors strive to publish research quickly and promote scientific insights from around the globe.

All articles in ACS Omega are published under an ACS AuthorChoice license. This open-access license means the papers are free to read for everyone. This increases an article’s readership within academic circles but also opens it up to readers from a variety of other backgrounds, such as industry, policy institutions, the media and even the general public.
