ACS Catalysis, a monthly online peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society, has been awarded the Association of American Publishers’ 2012 PROSE Award for Best New Journal in Science, Technology & Medicine. Professor Christopher Jones is the journal’s editor-in-chief. ACS Catalysis publishes experimental and theoretical research and reviews aimed at solving urgent global challenges, drawing its content from the disciplines of heterogeneous, homogeneous, and enzymatic catalysis. Since its launch in January 2011, the journal has been embraced by the global catalysis community, with manuscript submissions surpassing expectation

ACS Catalysis is led by Editor-in-Chief Christopher W. Jones, New-Vision Professor in the Georgia Tech School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and Adjunct Professor in the Georgia Tech School of Chemistry and Biochemistry. “ACS Catalysis was launched amidst a crowded field of catalysis journals, but was the first (along with a journal of similar scope from the Royal Society of Chemistry, which was launched in parallel) to be published by a major scientific society without a commercial, for-profit publishing partner,” Jones says.

According to Jones, much of the journal’s success is due to the superior submissions and a quick publication time, aided by its online-only format. “ACS Catalysis couples ACS Publications’ outstanding publication platform, ParagonPlus, with extremely fast processing times and a high-quality finished product,” he says. “We have been fortunate to attract a large number of submissions from around the world and publish papers by top authors in every area of catalysis.”
