2020 James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award Goes to Jingyun Fang

Professor Jingyun Fang, Associate Professor in the School of Environmental Science and Engineering at Sun Yat-Sen University, is the recipient of the 2020 James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award. This award, named after the first Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Science & Technology, recognizes the contributions of early-career researchers who have led the field in new directions through creative, new ideas consistent with Morgan’s early contributions in environmental chemistry.

Professor Fang received her bachelor and doctoral degrees from the Harbin Institute of Technology, China in 2003 and 2010, respectively. She took a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology before joining Sun Yat-Sen University in 2013. Professor Fang’s research focuses on the aqueous chemistry of reactive species (particularly radicals and high-valent manganese) in natural and engineering systems

The 2020 James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award will be presented at the 2020 ACS Spring National Meeting in Philadelphia, where Professor Fang will give an invited talk.

I had an opportunity to conduct a short interview with Professor Fang to learn more about her work and what this award means to her.

What prompted you to study the field of Environmental Science and Engineering?

Actually, I think it’s destiny that prompted me to work in the field of Environmental Science and Engineering. I love a sentence by a Chinese philosopher, Lao Zi. In Chinese it is “上善若水,水利万物而不争.”  The English translation is “The highest goodness is like water, water benefits all things and does not compete.” For me, it would be so good to be a person like water. When I was admitted by the Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), I decided to study water and wastewater engineering. During my studies at HIT, I got acquainted with Professor Jun Ma, who later became my Ph.D. supervisor. After obtaining my Ph.D., I wanted to pursue topics different from my Ph.D. research. This thinking led me to get involved in free radicals and high-valent manganese in the water treatment processes. It is of tremendous interest to elucidate the roles of different free radicals and high-valent manganese species in water purification. Thus, it’s destiny and fortunate that I am studying in my current research field, which aims to solve current societal water problems globally.

What do you think are the major challenges still facing this field?

The major challenge in my chosen research area of aqueous environmental chemistry are to apply the remediation technology for effectively controlling pollutants in complicated environmental matrices for fundamental investigation and engineering application. Also, there is a lack of fundamental strategies, including theoretical calculations, to enhance the effectiveness of removing pollutants in aquatic environment.

What advice would you would give to upcoming researchers in the field?

I think interests and persistence are important for research. I like the saying by Isaac Asimov, “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ (I found it) but ‘That’s funny… ‘” Being able to enjoy the research that you are doing and trying to involve something different into the research would make the research experience more interesting. I would emphasize to the researchers that working hard and being persistent will eventually fulfill your dreams.

What does it mean to you to be awarded the 2020 James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award?

I am greatly honored to be awarded the James J. Morgan Early Career Award. As a founding editor of the Environmental Science & Technology, James always maintained high standards and ethics of environmental science through fundamental approaches to environmental issues. I feel that I made a great strive in this direction to get this award. It is a coincidence that one of my latest research articles was on high-valent manganese. James researched on manganese element in aqueous environment in larger part of his research career and it is exciting to receive the award associated with his name.

Chemistry Lessons for Librarians from the Fall 2019 ACS National Meeting in San Diego

Nevena Tomic is a Subject Specialist at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. She received a travel grant from ACS Publications to attend the Fall 2019 ACS Meeting and Exposition in San Diego.

Some of my friends and colleagues have asked me, “What were the highlights of your ACS San Diego experience?” There is no simple answer. Some highlights included meeting people, falling in love (again) with chemistry (at this age?), and enjoying San Diego — if I try to classify my impressions as a passionate librarian.

So, let’s start with people. The other three grant winners (Alexa from the United States, Jessica from Canada, and Stephen from the Philippines) proved to be great company. We shared our experiences, coming from different countries, universities, with different backgrounds and challenges in our libraries. People from ACS (Andrew) and CINF technical division (Donna, Jeremy, Susan) were friendly, helpful, interesting and helped me to better understand their work and to start thinking how I can join to learn and to help. I met people from my university’s Core Labs department who were there to recruit students and faculty to come to the Middle East and join our young (10-year-old) university. They were very surprised to see me there and asked if I am there to recruit people for the library. I explained I came to learn and that I won a generous grant from ACS. I hope this meeting far from Saudi Arabia, in different circumstances, will be fruitful for better cooperation between our Library and Core Labs Department.

I loved chemistry in high school, but then I went to university and got a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and a Ph.D. in library and information science. I became an academic librarian and for many years my link to chemistry faded, until 6 months ago when I became Subject Specialist for Physical Sciences and Engineering at KAUST in Saudi Arabia and realized I need to learn more about chemical information resources to be able to help our researchers. So, I joined the CINF mailing list, and there I came across the call for the ACS Library Grant. I was lucky to get the grant which opened this whole new world to me.

I was surprised how big the ACS National Meeting is (the biggest conference I attended before was the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA), but I think the ACS meeting is bigger). It was not easy to select sessions to attend. Before going to San Diego, I was invited to give a lecture on searching scientific information to master’s students of Crystallography and Diffraction course, so I decided to learn more about crystallography resources at the conference and to go to listen to these topics. Attending CINF sessions was a logical choice. I learned a lot. Two highlights (from my experience) at CINF sessions were XR in libraries and Safety Information Literacy. When it comes to crystallography, I was not able to fully understand the high-level sessions I attended, but now I know the basics about crystallography resources, and I am proud of this.

San Diego is one of the most beautiful cities I visited, with a perfect climate and vibrant atmosphere. I liked the Gaslamp Quarter, the historic area where my hotel was located, as well as Seaport Village at the Bay, Balboa Park, with its art galleries, museums, and charming gardens. My favorite place there is the Air & Space Museum.

My San Diego experience was a perfect opportunity and a nice start for the freshman in the chemical information world. I see a lot of possibilities for me to better serve our community and for our Library to more significantly support the researchers in fields related to chemistry.

Wading Through Information at the Fall 2019 ACS Annual Meeting 

Jessica E. Hanley is a Science Liaison Librarian at a University of Toronto. She received a travel grant from ACS Publications to attend the Fall 2019 ACS Meeting and Exposition in San Diego.

I started my career as a Science Librarian in the spring of 2017.  I had been looking to attend conferences outside of the field of librarianship for some time, and the ACS Annual Meeting had been on my wish list for some time. I felt very honored when I received the news I had been selected as a grant recipient for this year’s meeting in San Diego.

This was going to be by far the largest conference I have ever attended, and my first conference not focused on librarianship. I was very excited to pick sessions to attend. The theme for this year’s annual meeting was “Chemistry and Water,” but there were sessions geared towards all fields of chemistry, and I was pleasantly surprised to see there were a few that fit my areas perfectly!

Looking at the schedule online, I must admit it was a bit intimidating at first. With so many different divisions, some sessions would appeal to all different types of education and employment backgrounds.  While I do have some chemistry in my education and employment background, it has been several years since I have immersed myself in the discipline, so I was eager to choose sessions that would help me to refresh my memory but also improve my professional practice. Jeremy Garritano, incoming chair of CINF, provided me and fellow grant recipients several useful tips, suggestions, and recommendations for deciding what events and sessions to attend. This (along with the ACS mobile app) helped in planning what sessions I wanted to attend and how to get to them.

I won’t list all the sessions I attended, as there were so many.  Some of the highlights, though included a session on the Google Patents search engine.  I found these sessions extremely useful. I also spent a day entirely focused on web-based chemistry databases.  As a Science Librarian, I am also looking for opportunities to learn about new resources that I can share with my faculty and students.  I liked that the day was structured so that each presentation was a reasonable length of time.  It kept the presentations to the point and the audience engaged. It felt like the day flew by.  These sessions were a highlight of the conference. I could see how I could apply that knowledge to my day-to-day work.  I was not anticipating there would be such a large number of sessions geared towards librarians, but ACS did an excellent job of making sure all areas of chemistry were covered.

The conference was not all work and no play, however.  Each evening there was a variety of different opportunities to engage with other attendees each day.  One event was the poster session which featured student research from around the globe.  I had the opportunity to speak to a few students about their research and was blown away about how enthusiastic and eager they were to share it.   There was also a few mixers where I was able to spend time getting to know fellow Librarians, chemists, and vendors. Everyhad been on my wish list for some time. I felt very honored when I received the news I had been selected as a grant recipient for this year’s meeting in San Diego.

During the event I learned I could become actively involved in ACS and the Chemical Information (CINF) division in ways I didn’t know about before. After discussing this with a few board members, I was excited at the possibility of being more involved. Librarians continue to move toward filling non-traditional roles.  Attending an ACS meeting and getting engaged in the CINF division is something I would recommend all Librarians involved in chemistry consider.  I am ecstatic that I was able to have this experience and learn so much throughout the conference. I want to thank ACS for this opportunity of a lifetime, and for having such a large number of resources available to information professionals.

Copyright and Exclusivity: What Does It Mean?

“Copyright is essentially the granting of exclusive rights to the originator or the assignee of written material,” Eric Slater, Copyright, Permissions, and Licensing Manager at the American Chemical Society explains. “The grant of rights includes the right to reproduce the work, to copy the work, to display the work, to create derivative works, and to perform the work.”

Slater says the policy of most publishers is for the authors to transfer copyright to the publisher, transferred in an agreement called the Journal Publishing Agreement. If your work is a derivative of work from another publisher, you would need to obtain permission beforehand. This proof is usually uploaded when you submit your manuscript, along with the journal publishing agreement. Once this happens, resubmitting an identical research paper at another publisher makes the author liable for copyright infringement.
It never hurts to ask if you are unsure, Slater reassures.

Are there any advantages? Slater says there are. Primarily, there is less for the author to worry about. The publisher takes on the burden of copyright and permissions. If there is someone asking to reuse material, they deal with the publisher directly.

For more publishing tips, visit the ACS Publishing Center, a centralized hub for researchers to prepare and track manuscripts. This website features centralization of information for ease of discovery of resources on submission, open access licensing, peer review education and more.
