New ACS journal Environmental Science and Technology Letters to rapidly publish urgent research
Date:5/2/2013

ACS Publications is pleased to announce the launch of Environmental Science & Technology Letters (ES&T Letters). The new journal will accelerate the pace of research across the environmental field by providing the global multidisciplinary research community with a leading publishing outlet to highlight urgent critical findings in a letters format. ES&T Letters, available exclusively online, will release its first issue January 2014 and open for submissions in summer 2013.

ES&T Letters leverages the success and brand recognition of the leading environmental primary research journal, Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T). As reported in the 2011 Journal Citation Reports, ES&T is the most cited journal in the categories of Environmental Engineering and Environmental Sciences, with 82,897 total citations. The journal also recorded its highest ISI Impact Factor to date of 5.228. ES&T Letters will meet these high editorial standards for impactful letters content while offering expedited time to publication, as achieved by the ACS Letters journals portfolio, now including ACS Macro Letters, ACS Medicinal Chemistry Letters, the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, Nano Letters and Organic Letters.

Bruce Logan, Ph.D., of The Pennsylvania State University, has been appointed as Deputy Editor of the journal by Jerald Schnoor, Ph.D., Editor. Dr. Logan is currently an Evan Pugh Professor and the Stan and Flora Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. He serves as Director of the Engineering Energy & Environmental Institute and the Hydrogen Energy Center at the university. Dr. Logan has established editorial experience at ACS through his service as an Associate Editor for ES&T and is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including most recently being elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

"Environmental Science & Technology Letters, building off the strong editorial reputation of Environmental Science & Technology, is the environmentally focused letters forum our community is looking for," says Dr. Logan. "I am thrilled that we can offer this outlet for high-impact advances and breakthroughs that require expeditious communication. Environmental Science & Technology Letters will provide a rapid, effective and informative way for researchers to quickly share their findings with other colleagues and the public."

The journal welcomes submissions across the environmental sciences. Cross-disciplinary research and research addressing emerging issues are of particular interest. Included among the areas the journal covers are the characterization of natural and affected environments, environmental processes, environmental measurements methods, environmental aspects of nanotechnology, novel remediation and control technologies, and energy and the environment.

Dr. Jerald Schnoor, Editor of ES&T and the Allen S. Henry Chair and Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Iowa, says, "Environmental Science & Technology has a vibrant and expanding environmental chemistry community. This new journal will provide an additional outlet to those authors by focusing on short, high-quality reports. Our editorial team looks forward to working with Dr. Logan to serve the entire community of scientists and engineers publishing in our journals."

Dr. Susan King, Senior Vice President, Journals Publishing Group, adds, "Environmental Science & Technology Letters will use state-of-the-art peer-review management software and ACS' proprietary automated composition technology. Readers will benefit from the rich online research experience enabled by the ACS ActiveView PDF format and the ACS ChemWorx platform, allowing readers to engage fully with the articles, annotate and sync PDF articles to a secure platform and share information about the article with collaborators around the world. Environmental Science & Technology Letters represents a step forward in achieving the ACS mission to 'Advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.'"
