ACS Sensors Celebrates First Full Impact Factor

Earlier this month, ACS Sensors received its first full Impact Factor, 6.944, in Clarivate Analytics’ Journal Citation Reports®. The Impact Factor is for the 2018 calendar year, and is determined by dividing the number of citations received in 2018 to content published in 2016 and 2017 by the number of articles published in ACS Sensors in 2016 and 2017.

“The impact factor of 6.944 is now very similar to our parent journal Analytical Chemistry; one of the great legacy journals of the American Chemical Society,” says ACS Sensors Editor-in-Chief, J. Justin Gooding.

The infographic shows a brief timeline and history of ACS Sensors, and how it has grown since its launch in 2016.

ACS Sensors is a peer-reviewed research journal that is devoted to the dissemination of new and original knowledge on all aspects of sensor science that selectively sense chemical or biological species or processes. Articles may address conceptual advances in sensing that are applicable to many types of analytes or application papers which report on the use of an existing sensing concept in a new way or for a new analyte.

Application papers should demonstrate the use of the sensor in complex samples, show it is fit-for-purpose, and exhibit a correlation of the sensor’s performance with an existing analytical method. Papers in ACS Sensors may focus on sensor development for commercialization or developing sensors that are used to provide new scientific knowledge. Articles may be entirely theoretical with regard to sensing, or they may report experimental results. The types of sensors the journal covers include:

  • Biosensors
  • Chemical sensors
  • Gas sensors
  • Intracellular sensors
  • Single molecule sensors
  • Cell chips
  • Arrays
  • Microfluidic devices

Primary research papers in ACS Sensors include Letters and Articles. Note that the maximum length of Letters is four journal pages and Articles are eight. In addition, ACS Sensors publishes Reviews, Perspectives, Sensor Issues and Introducing Our Authors. Perspectives should report the authors’ opinion on important new directions in sensing and discuss the nature of the opportunities perceived. Reviews can cover conceptual advances in sensing, review a class of sensor or analyte, or can be more of a tutorial that addresses a specific challenge in sensing and approaches to overcoming it. Sensor Issues will guide the community and new entrants to sensors on where the opportunities and challenges are by highlighting specific sensing issues.

Celebrate 110 Years of I&ECR

At the Forefront of Chemical Engineering Research Since 1909

Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research (I&ECR), originally titled the Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry (I&EC), was the third journal launched by the American Chemical Society (ACS), after Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) and The Journal of Physical Chemistry.

The journal was first published in 1909, the same year that:

  • William Howard Taft was sworn in as 27th President of the United States
  • Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch demonstrated their process for nitrogen fixation
  • Søren Peder Lauritz Sørensen introduced the concept of pH
  • Leo Baekeland patented the first thermo-setting plastic, launching the plastics industry

ACS Publications might be biased, but we believe I&ECR’s inaugural 1909 volume to be up there with these historical events!

To celebrate eleven decades of scientific research and communication, the journal’s Editor-in-Chief Phillip E. Savage published an Editorial in January thanking authors, reviewers, editors, and readers. “We very much appreciate the confidence that our global community of authors and readers show in I&EC Research as the journal of choice for their best work in chemical engineering and applied chemistry. Indeed, the esteemed history of I&EC Research demonstrates that it is attuned to the needs of its readers and able to lead and adapt to changes in chemical engineering research,” he wrote.

How is I&ECR planning to celebrate 110 Years?

Exploring the Wild West of E-Cigarettes

Researchers are helping tackle complex issues surrounding human exposure to chemicals from the use of e-cigarettes.  The ToxWatch article “The Wild West of E-Cigarettes,” brings to light that this emerging area is really a wild west due to the ever-evolving designs, flavors, brands, and unexpected ways that users approach the experience, just to point out some of the many factors that influence the effects of this immensely popular product, particularly among youth.  Innovation in study designs and approaches are advanced as the way forward in understanding and protecting public health impacts.

“The popularity of ecigarettes is growing exponentially. Yet, the health risks associated with their use remain unclear, mainly due to the fact that they are not ‘one product,’ but a combination of ever-evolving designs, flavors, brands, and modes of use, ” write Silvia Balbo and Irina Stepanov in the abstract . “Research needs to better understand how these variables affect toxicity.”

This poster lays out the differences between various e-cigarette products and the gaps in our current understanding of their risks. Click on the image below to download a high-quality PDF of the poster, suitable for printing.

Exploring a New Approach to Predicting Toxicity

A five-step process could offer a method for linking biochemical characterization of toxic responses to information that can impact risk assessment and management practices, writes Professor Jiayin Dai of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China, is an Associate Editor at Chemical Research in Toxicology. In a recent ToxWatch piece in the journal, Dai writes this method presents “a promising and powerful tool for screening hundreds of chemicals or mixtures by potency ranking and to classify chemicals by the spectrum of disrupted biological pathways.”

“The reduced transcriptomic approach allows full dose range testing of hundreds of chemicals or mixtures using human cells or zebrafish embryos,” Jiayin Dai writes in the abstract for “Reduced Transcriptomic Approach for Screening and Prediction of Chemical Toxicity.”  “Points of departure of genes and pathways can be used for potency ranking and to classify chemicals by disrupted biological pathways.”

This poster lays out the practical steps from data input on the level of dose-response modeling of genes in cells exposed to chemicals to the possibility of classifying and ranking potency. Click on the image below to download a high-quality PDF of the poster, suitable for printing.

Inorganic Chemistry Explores the 5 Stages of Rejection

Manuscript rejection is a normal part of the scientific publishing process. It happens to all researchers, from novices to Nobel Laureates, at one time or another.  Intellectually that makes sense—especially when it happens to someone else—but what should you do when a rejection notice shows up in your inbox?

“First, take a breath. Take a deep breath,” advise Inorganic Chemistry Editor-in-Chief William B. Tolman and Associate Editor  P. Shiv Halasyamani.

How Chemists Can Use Manuscript Rejection to Improve Their Work

In their May 7, 2018, editorial, these veteran researchers and journal editors offer their take on rejection psychology with the “Five Stages of Rejection”—Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance —modeled after the “Five Stages of Grief,” developed by psychiatrist Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

Tolman and Halasyamani’s therapeutic commentary may seem light-hearted, but it offers serious advice on how chemists can find solace during the rejection recovery process and use that experience to become better researchers. The editors note that rejection is a time for reflection on how to improve your manuscript, or whether to return to the drawing board to start anew because better ideas could be in the offing.

They hope their editorial will help improve the publishing experience for authors, editors, reviewers, and readers.

“Editors at Inorganic Chemistry not only handle hundreds of papers per year, but also are active research scientists who submit manuscripts themselves,” Tolman and Halasyamani write. “Each one of us has experienced these five stages when our own papers have been rejected. We understand.”
