Same Great Chemistry. A Fresh New Look.

Bibiana Campos-SeijoC&EN has always been known for its journalism: award-winning, in-depth, and spanning the chemistry enterprise’s complex landscape. We are pleased to announce that with the upcoming Feb. 29 issue, the magazine that chemists have relied on for decades will have a fresh and modern look and a new organization that better serves your needs. It’s just the first part of a broader, ongoing effort to improve your experience with C&EN, no matter how, when, or where you are consuming our publication.

How is C&EN evolving?

A modern look–and easier navigation. The clean, uncluttered design we’ll unveil in print on February 29 will make C&EN even more pleasurable to read.  The magazine’s new organization will help readers locate the stories that matter most more quickly and easily.

A more international perspective. In recent months C&EN has made several moves to better serve our international readers. We’ve broadened the international scope of our chemical policy and regulation coverage and increased our pool of foreign correspondents in order to truly capture news and trends from outside the U.S.

More expert opinions. Perspectives, C&EN’s monthly opinion feature, was introduced last fall and was an invitation to the chemistry community to share thought-provoking ideas, insights, and trends with C&EN’s audience. These columns have generated many interesting conversations, and we will continue to bring your voices straight to our pages.

For decades, C&EN’s print magazine has been the most powerful mechanism by which ACS communicates with its members. With the Feb. 29 issue, we’re excited to unveil the first in many initiatives that will position C&EN as a leader in the rapidly changing world of modern journalism. Our print magazine will remain the cohesive element that allows our readers to connect with us. But with a new mobile app debuting midyear and a restructured and reenergized website coming up later on, the print magazine’s new look is just one piece of the puzzle. C&EN’s in-depth journalism and innovative storytelling will now be front and center with readers and advertisers alike, across mediums, devices and continents.

We’re excited for this next journey, and hope you share your new experience with us along the way.
