ACS Publications is pleased to announce an upcoming virtual forum in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (JAFC). Attendees of the April 21st free event will have the opportunity to network with the editors of JAFC and its portfolio of journals, and will learn more about some of the latest research being done by scientists at research institutions and corporations around the world.
In the past few years, ACS Publications has expanded its footprint in the agricultural and food science fields, establishing two new journals in 2020. Guided by JAFC Editor-in-Chief Thomas Hofmann, Ph.D., ACS Agricultural Science & Technology is led by Deputy Editor Laura L. McConnell, Ph.D., Bayer Science Fellow at Bayer Crop Science, and ACS Food Science & Technology is led by Deputy Editor Coralia Osorio Roa, Ph.D., of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Each of the editors will be participating in the event, and guests will learn more about them in an interactive break during the event.
“This event is an excellent opportunity for researchers in the fields of agricultural and food chemistry to hear the latest research in their fields, and to network with leading scientists,” says William King, managing editor of the JAFC journal portfolio at ACS. “I encourage researchers at all stages of their career to join us on April 21 for an innovative exchange of ideas and scientific advancements.”
