Springer to co-publish the Journal of Flow Chemistry

As of January 2018, Springer and Akadémiai Kiadó will co-publish the official journal of the Flow Chemistry Society

Heidelberg | Budapest, 7 December 2017

Journal cover: Journal of Flow ChemistryHungary’s oldest publishing house Akadémiai Kiadó and Springer will add a further journal to their long-established co-publishing programme. The Journal of Flow Chemistry serves as a high-level academic forum for rapid publication of the latest results in flow chemistry. It was originally founded by the Flow Chemistry Society in 2011. 

Akadémiai Kiadó was founded in 1828 and is a leading STM publisher in Hungary. The co-publishing cooperation between Springer and Akadémiai Kiadó has a tradition of many decades and there are currently ten journals included in this partnership. The Journal of Flow Chemistry will now become an invaluable addition to this diverse portfolio which spans the physical sciences, humanities and mathematics.

The Journal of Flow Chemistry is headed by editor-in-chief C. Oliver Kappe, professor at the University of Graz in Austria. He is supported by international expert associate editors, as well as an editorial board, and advisory board members. The journal will publish four issues per year and is available online and in print.

“As editor-in-chief of the Journal of Flow Chemistry I am very pleased with the new co-publication agreement with Springer,” said C. Oliver Kappe. “This will increase visibility and accessibility of the journal and its content to a wider audience, and therefore will attract more authors to publish with us.”

Managing director of Akadémiai Kiadó, Balázs Réffy, said: “The Journal of Flow Chemistry has been a unique success story from its launch in 2011 by the Flow Chemistry Society and Akadémiai Kiadó. I am very confident that Springer as a co-publishing partner will add essential resources and experience to secure the long-term stability of the journal and thereby benefit the global scientific community.”

Ferenc Darvas, president of the Flow Chemistry Society, said: “Through this collaboration, we believe that Springer can now contribute to developing one of chemistry’s fastest growing fields, which indirectly also has an impact on green chemistry and the increased safety of chemical operations.”

“In recent years the field of flow chemistry has rapidly developed and we look forward to working with the distinguished internal editorial board, the Flow Chemistry Society and Akadémiai Kiadó to continue the success of this journal and present the future advances of this growing field,” explained Charlotte Hollingworth, senior publishing editor at Springer.
