A new initiative from Nature Research

Welcome to our new chemistry community! 

The community is supported by our growing number of chemistry journals, including Nature, Nature Chemistry and Nature Communications, as well as three newer journals, Nature Reviews Chemistry, which launched in January 2017, Nature Catalysis, launched this month, and Communications Chemistry, which will launch in March.

This initiative builds on our successful communities in microbiologyecology and evolutionbiomedical engineering and sustainability. This community is for all those interested in chemistry, including our journal readers and authors, educators, and those working in industry.

Feel free to join the discussion by commenting on posts - and enjoy the community!

Head of Communities & Engagement, Springer Nature

I gained my first degree in virology from the University of Warwick and a PhD in influenza virus immune evasion from Public Health England and the University of Reading, UK. My research interests then moved on to smallpox vaccines, viral ion channels, and cell adhesion, while a postdoc at Imperial College London. I joined open access publisher BioMed Central in 2011 as an Acquisitions Editor and then Associate Publisher, and was responsible for launching new journals, including Microbiome, Zoological Letters, and Movement Ecology. I have been Head of Communities & Engagement at Springer Nature since 2016, running our online community blogs, and a Consulting Editor at Nature Medicine since June 2020, handling COVID-19 papers. I am based in our London office.
