What is C&EN Digital Magazine?

ACS members can choose to receive C&EN in a digital format in lieu of their weekly print copy. The digital magazine is an interactive PDF version of the entire print magazine. It also includes links to each issue's online-only features. Each week, instead of receiving your print copy, you'll receive an email notifying you that the issue is ready for viewing. You can view the issue in a browser or mobile device, download the issue to your computer, or print out pages.

How does the digital magazine differ from C&EN's website?

The digital magazine is an interactive PDF version of the print magazine, including the same layout and content such as display ads and classifieds. C&EN's website includes all of the same articles as the print edition, but it does not have the classifieds or the same ads. C&EN's website also includes additional material not in the weekly print edition and is formatted differently from the print edition.
