New Sister Journal to Nature Chemistry

Nature Publishing Group today announced that it was launching a new journal in 2014 to keep up with current trends in chemical sciences. The journal, to be known as Nature Buzzchem, will be launched later this month. I’ve obtained an advance copy of the cover and table of contents.


Nature Buzzchem

February 2014, Volume 1, Issue 1 pp1-124

  1. Each article consists of 10 figures/schemes pinched from other journals and/or reddit, with short, meaningless captions for each. The theme holding them together is tenuous at best.
