The Professional/Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers on Feb. 7 named the journalACS Catalysis as a recipient of a 2012 American Publishers Award for Professional & Scholarly Excellence (PROSE).

PSP recognized ACS Catalysis as Best New Journal in Science, Technology & Medicine. The award honors achievement for all-around scientific publishing excellence, accounting for editorial scope and quality, peer review, production design and quality, marketing, and Web and mobile presentation.

Christopher W. Jones, who holds a joint appointment as a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and an adjunct professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Georgia Institute of Technology, is the founding editor-in-chief of the online-only journal. Launched by the American Chemical Society in January 2011, ACS Catalysis covers research in heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysis via full-length articles, letters, and solicited reviews. Its coverage spans fields such as organic chemistry, materials science, energy, and environmental and biological systems.

“This award is a testament to the dedicated efforts of Christopher Jones and his fellow editors in quickly establishing a reputation for rigor and service to authors and in publishing research findings of significance and broad impact,” says Susan King, senior vice president of ACS Publications’ Journals Publishing Group.
