About the C&EN digital magazine

C&EN’s digital magazine gives you the weekly issue experience, wherever you are

C&EN’s digital magazine gives ACS members an online experience of our weekly issue.

In May 2020, we integrated our digital magazine and mobile app on a single platform to provide an improved reader experience across all your devices. An updated HTML view of your issue is front and center. Prefer a PDF experience? A PDF of the current issue along with an archive, back to 2016, are also at your fingertips.

With the digital magazine, you can:

  • Access the latest weekly issue of C&EN
  • Access current and archived PDF issues back to 2016
  • Search your favorite chemistry topics or discover what catches your eye while browsing a thumbnail view
  • Share stories with your networks via email and social

Keep your ACS membership up to date and ensure you’re logged in with your ACS ID and password to keep up with your weekly issue. To get access to the digital magazine and everything else C&EN has to offer, join ACS today.
