Materials research is one of the hottest fields in science and one of the areas where academic research and industry have the most overlap. Researchers in this important field need to publish their work quickly and ensure that their work is seen by a wide audience, many of whom may not have access to subscription-only journals. ACS Omega, a fully open-access, multidisciplinary journal from the American Chemical Society (ACS) and ACS Publications, has a commitment to speedy review and high-quality publication and is a great place for materials science researchers to publish their work.
That’s because ACS Publications is a nonprofit scholarly publisher and—like all ACS journals—ACS Omega is led by a team of Editors who are also prominent practicing scientists. These Editors, who are experts in their fields, oversee a thorough, fair, and constructive peer-review process.
ACS Omega’s Editorial team includes Editors working in materials research, such as:
- Professor Deqing Zhang, Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, who focuses on organic functional materials involving synthesis of organic functional molecules, spectroscopic studies, characterizations of self-assembly structures and optoelectronic properties, as well as applications for chemo-/biosensing and imaging
- Professor Sarbajit Banerjee, Texas A&M University, who focuses on the interplay between geometric and electronic structure at interfaces as well as in solid-state materials and their translation to functional properties
- Professor Luisa Torsi, University of Bari Aldo Moro, who focuses on organic electronic sensors and their use for point-of-care testing
That level of expertise means articles are being evaluated by Editors who know their field and can move quickly to publish important work. Publishing quickly helps ACS Omega articles reach a wide audience and attract citations.
