Being selected as a reviewer by the Journal is evidence of rigour and standing in a scientific field. However, receiving the public recognition as an Outstanding Reviewer displays a high level of confidence for consistently high quality reviewing. From the CanJChem website,
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Guelph is searching for Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) candidates in one or more of the fields of Electrochemistry, Nanoscience, and Surface Science, all broadly defined. The tenured appointment will be at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level, according the successful applicant’s qualifications and experience.
This work, published by Springer, brings together mechanistic studies of biomass conversions; it is particularly timely, with the growing appreciation of the impact of petrochemical-based industries.
Advances in Engineering has identified a paper by Dorin Bejan and Nigel Bunce, Acid mine drainage: electrochemical approaches to prevention, and remediation of acidity and toxic metals (Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, December 2015, Volume 45, Issue 12, pp 1239-1254) as a Key Scientific Article contributing to excellence in engineering, scientific and industrial research. Advances in Engineering highlights papers of exceptional scientific importance, including the biographical information of the authors, to a broad scientific & engineering audience. It is viewed almost 650,000 times each month by engineers, professors and scientists and it is linked to the top 50 engineering companies as well as major research institutions.
Four University of Guelph representatives were recognized Thursday night at the 20th annual Women of Distinction Awards event. Preuss, holder of a Canada Research Chair, received her award in the Science and Research category. She studies nanotechnology and molecular magnetism.
We and the Canadian Journal of Chemistry (CJC) and Canadian Science Publishing would like to congratulate Professor Adrian Schwan (University of Guelph) for receiving the very first Canadian Journal of Chemistry Best Paper Award .
