We often hear that the past is not a guide to the future. This is perhaps true in the realms of finance or sports. But for science, we can be sure that nurturing and celebrating new talent today will yield exciting new breakthrough discoveries tomorrow.

Six of the ACS Au open access journals dedicated recent ‘Rising Star’ Virtual Special Issues to celebrating the work of more than 70 inspirational new leaders in scientific research throughout the world.

So for a good indication of the future of science, invest a little of your time in checking out the next generation. The ACS Au journals are fully open access, meaning all articles are available to read and download for anyone, at anytime, anywhere in the world.
