For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you had a relaxing holiday and an enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner (raise your hand if someone tried to convince you that the tryptophan in turkey makes you tired…) My wife and I had a small gathering at our apartment, where we consumed the Roast Ox potato chips and I learned that Lay’s makes turkey-flavored potato chips (“”http://www.taquitos.net/snacks.php?snack_code=1404">They really do taste like turkey with gravy … It’s like combining the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner, all in one bag.")
Anyways, when I was in London a few weeks ago, I had my yearly appraisal – these appraisals always take place in November or December, so we often talk about our plans for the following year… We already have a few things planned for 2007 (and 2008), but I’d be curious to hear what you’d like to see more of (or less of) next year. I’m not just referring to primary research; we try to make sure chemistry appears throughout the journal – for example, in editorials, News Features, News & Views articles (on papers published in Nature and in other journals), Insights and review articles, essays, etc.
We often get feedback from the community when we’re at meetings (positive and negative feedback – both can be quite helpful), but since there aren’t many chemistry meetings coming up in the next few months, I thought this might be an easy way to find out what you think (anonymously if you’d prefer…)
Thanks in advance for your comments!
