The fall ACS Meeting will take place in Indianapolis, September 8-12, 2013. However, the program is not complete without those of you who are willing to share your accomplishments, research, projects and observations with us.

XCITR (Explore Chemical Information Teaching Resources) has found new home

I am delighted to announce that XCITR has found a new home. After a successful transfer from FIZ Chemie Berlin, the program is now hosted and maintained by the eScience group of the Royal Society of Chemistry and is accessible at http://www.xcitr.org.

We are very grateful and thank FIZ Chemie, especially Prof. Rene Deplanque, Dr. Gregor Zimmermann and Dr. Ira Fresen, for hosting and maintaining the program in the past.  Their efforts in the development of XCITR are very much appreciated.

Find out how to submit your paper. Good luck!

Webinar: Telling a fuller story of research impact with altmetrics and ImpactStory

Date: February 20, 2013
Time: 11 am Eastern time (US)

Abstract:
In growing numbers, the workflows of scholars are moving online. As that happens, important parts of the scientific process, once hidden, are being exposed. Conversations, arguments, recommendations, reads, bookmarks--the stuff of day-to-day science--is leaving traces in places like Mendeley, Twitter, blogs, Faculty of 1000, and many others.
