Abstract: The Royal Society of Chemistry is one of the leading international chemical societies and it plays an important role within the community — helping to support those working in and studying the chemical sciences with a wide range of activities. During this presentation, I will introduce the work that the Royal Society of Chemistry does, my role within the organization and the route I took from Ph.D. student to being the deputy editor for chemical science. I will also highlight the role publisher’s play in the community and the benefits they can afford for supporting the dissemination of an author’s research output. Finally, I will discuss the peer review and publication process, including how to choose a journal, getting your paper noticed, and what to do after publication.
Bio: Jeremy joined the Royal Society of Chemistry in July 2014 as a publishing editor, starting on the journals Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and Nanoscale. Before moving to his current role as the deputy editor for chemical science, he also worked as a publishing editor on the Royal Society of Chemistry’s analytical chemistry portfolio and as a deputy editor on ChemComm and Chemical Society Reviews. He completed a Ph.D. at the University of Bath, UK, and worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. His research focused on the use of computational chemistry for modeling reactions on surfaces and understanding the defect chemistry of oxide materials.
