Wiley-VCH launches new journal Advanced Energy Materials
(Nanowerk News) Wiley-VCH today announced the launch of the journal Advanced Energy Materials, a new international scientific journal dedicated to publishing high impact research in energy-related materials.
"Our mission is to support the global quest for energy solutions with this dedicated new journal," says Deputy Editor of Advanced Materials, Dr. Martin Ottmar. "The Advanced journals family is the ideal environment for reaching a broad and multidisciplinary audience that already knows to expect top quality and relevance from the content we publish."
Advanced Energy Materials is an international, interdisciplinary, English-language publication of original peer-reviewed contributions in the form of invited Reviews and Progress Reports, Full Papers and Rapid Communications, covering all topics in research relating to energy harvesting, conversion and storage. It serves as a dedicated forum for all energy-related research, including photovoltaics, batteries, supercapacitors, thermoelectrics, fuel cells and superconductors.
"The launch of this journal is timely, given the recent growth in energy-related research. Our strong record in materials publishing gives us the opportunity to serve the communities involved in these fields," adds Dr. Peter Gregory, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Materials.
As the newest addition to the Advanced series, Advanced Energy Materials is handled by the experienced Advanced Materials and Advanced Functional Materials editorial team at Wiley-VCH. Having been a special focus section integrated with Advanced Materials in 2010, Advanced Energy Materials will publish an initial six issues per year in print in 2011, and electronically via Wiley Online Library, Wiley's dynamic online content platform.
