Happy birthday to… us!!

It seems like only yesterday that Nature Chemistry was nothing more that a glint in a publisher’s eye – and here we are now, celebrating our first birthday! Our April issue went live today (more on that in a blog post later this week) and so it has been a whole year since the very first issue (April 2009) was unleashed into the wild.

The year seems to have flown by and we’re now well into volume 2. It’s no longer so much of a shock that we have to put one of these things together every month – unlike the beginning where we had 12 months or so to put issue 1 together, and then just over five or so weeks to get number 2 ready, and then number 3, and so on…

To mark our first year, the team has gone back and picked out some of our favourites from the last 12 months, and we’re making them available for free until the end of June. If you haven’t been keeping up with us, take a look and find out what you’ve been missing. And don’t forget that the whole of our very first issue remains free to access.

And if you’ve got any comments on how we’re doing, or what you might like to see us do differently as we plough on, feel free to leave a comment on this post.
