year, Chemistry International celebrates its 25th anniversary
by getting a "face lift." This might not come as
a big surprise, as the idea has been floating around for a
while. So, here it is!
permanent green cover has been put to rest, and one color
tone added throughout the text. The idea of redesigning your
newsmagazine is not only justified by the fact that we need
changes to keep it interesting, but also because a more appealing
and contemporary look should allow for a better presentation
of the contents. While embarking on this project, with designer
Hollis Oberlies and copy editor Chris Brouwer, we looked at
other newsmagazines, reviewed CI contents, and evaluated
our own resources. Chris and I tweaked the editorial style,
while Hollis shook it all up and made a new layout.
note - The
fun did not stop there and with the help of Thomas Gould of
Kansas State, we also redesigned the Web version. There are
now many more links to all regular departments and straightforward
paths to go from page to page, and issue to issue.
does remain is the most important aspect of this newsmagazine:
that it entirely depends on voluntary contributions from individual
volunteers like YOU. That is why I like to think of CI
as YOUR newsmagazine — not only because at one point it lands
in your mailbox, but more importantly because sooner or later
you will report in it. If what you expect to find in CI
is news about IUPAC, its activities, its chemists, its projects,
its publications, its recommendations, its conferences, etc.,
then you —who are closely or remotely part of IUPAC —should
do your part and submit your contribution for publication.
YOU in CI, and have a pure and happy chemistryear!
