The Journal of Physical Chemistry A/B/C will publish a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) in 2023 featuring work from early career scientists (15 years or less since receiving a Ph.D). This second volume will serve as a follow-up to the first volume, published in 2019.
We invite submissions from early career researchers in all areas of physical chemistry, which spans the scopes of The Journal of Physical Chemistry A (Molecules Clusters and Aerosols, as well as New Tools and Methods in Experiment and Theory), The Journal of Physical Chemistry B (Biophysics, Biomaterials, Liquids, and Soft Matter), and The Journal of Physical Chemistry C (Energy, Materials, and Catalysis).
We aim to honor the work of early career researchers for the new experience, expertise, and knowledge they bring to the physical chemistry community through contributions to The Journal of Physical Chemistry A/B/C.
The deadline for submission is December 31, 2022.
To ensure an unbiased peer-review process, we ask that you do not indicate within your manuscript that the submission is intended for the VSI. If you do, your manuscript will be returned for correction. Instead, when you submit your manuscript, please indicate this in your cover letter and note what part and section you feel will be the best fit. Please also indicate the year the corresponding author received their Ph.D. You can find a complete list of sections and other important information for authors in The Journal of Physical Chemistry A/B/C Author Guidelines.
As with all article submissions to The Journal of Physical Chemistry A/B/C, manuscripts should represent a rigorous scientific report of original research, as it will be peer-reviewed as a regular article. Manuscripts are expected to provide new physical insight and/or present new computational or experimental methods of broad interest.
