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 PhD student to being the Deputy Editor for Chemical Science. I will also highlight the role publishers 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, thinking about how to choose a journal, getting your paper noticed and what to do after publication.
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. Prior to moving to joining the organisation, he completed a PhD at the University of Bath, UK and worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. His research focused on the use of computational chemistry for modelling reactions on surfaces and understanding the defect chemistry of oxide materials.
