ACS Publications recently launched ACS Sustainable Resource Management, an interdisciplinary journal publishing original research describing the science and practice in the sustainable use of natural and waste resources.
The journal is led by Deputy Editor Professor Michael Tam, Ph.D. He will work closely alongside Editor-in-Chief Professor Peter Licence, Ph.D. (who also manages sibling publication ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering) to help grow ACS Sustainable Resource Management in its inaugural year and further strengthen the ACS Publications Sustainability journal family.
We recently caught up with Prof. Tam and Prof. Licence to learn more about their backgrounds, what inspires their research, and their hopes for the future of ACS Sustainable Resource Management.
