Another New Med-Chem Journal
I should also note that the Royal Society of Chemistry is starting its own med-chem communications journal. MedChemComm. Along with the new ACS journal, this now means that medicinal chemists have more places to publish their work than ever before.
Which is a bit of a sour thought, considering that the number of industry-employed medicinal chemists has been dropping for several years now, and the end does not appear to be in sight. We'll see how this affects the publishing world (admittedly, a minor worry). In the short term, people are probably trying to make their patent and publication records look as impressive as possible, so I would think that fewer and fewer publishable results are sitting around in desk drawers. In the long term, though, are we going to see fewer papers in general? (Or failing that, more from academic labs?)
