E' stato lanciato l'equivalente di Biomed Central per la chimica. Un 
nuovo sito web ad accesso aperto per i chimici. Il sito raccogliera' la 
ricerca di qualita' in ambito chimico pubblicata su riviste ad accesso 
aperto. L'accesso agli articoli e' libero, mentre la pubblicazione 
dell'articolo e' a pagamento, come in Biomed Central.
Tutti gli articoli originali pubblicati su Chemistry Central sono ad 
accesso aperto in  modo permanente e immediatamente dopo la loro 
Chemistry Central include articoli ad accesso aperto da Geochemical 
Transactions, the online journal of the American Chemical Society's 
Division of Geochemistry, and dal  Beilstein, Journal of Organic 
Chemistry, che e' pubblicato dal Beilstein Institut insieme con BioMed 
Chemistry Central include inoltre articoli afferenti alla chimica in 
BioMed Central's biological and medical journals, compreso BMC 
Pharmacology, BMC Biochemistry and BMC Chemical Biology.
Per saperne di piu' visitare
Chemistry Central fa parte insieme con BiomedCentral di una nuova 
organizzazione" ombrello" chiamata Open Central 
(www.openaccesscentral.com). In futuro pensano di istituire anche un 
Physics Centra.

Press Release: 22 August 2006
A new home for open access chemistry research
Chemistry Central, launched today at www.chemistrycentral.com, is
a new open access website for chemists. It brings together
peer-reviewed research in chemistry from a range of open access
journals. All the original research articles on Chemistry Central
are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately
upon publication.
Chemistry Central has been developed by the same team who created
BioMed Central, the leading biomedical open access publisher.
Bryan Vickery, Deputy Publisher at BioMed Central and a chemist
by training, says "We have seen increasing interest from chemists
in the open access publishing model and, having launched two
chemistry-specific titles in the last 18 months, the time seemed
right for BioMed Central to create an open access publishing
website to meet the needs of chemists."
Chemistry Central features open access articles from Geochemical
Transactions, the online journal of the American Chemical
Society's Division of Geochemistry, and from the Beilstein
Journal of Organic Chemistry, which is published by the Beilstein
Institut in association with BioMed Central. Chemistry Central
also features chemistry-related articles published in BioMed
Central's biological and medical journals, including BMC
Pharmacology, BMC Biochemistry and BMC Chemical Biology.
Journals featured on Chemistry Central incorporate special
features to make them suitable for chemistry-related content. For
example, authors can submit their figures as ChemDraw or ISISDraw
files, and see an instant thumbnail preview showing how the web
version of the figure will appear. Articles published in the
Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry also incorporate a
graphical abstract on the table of contents and search results
pages, providing a quick visual summary the research reported in
the article.
As well as viewing the latest research highlights and content
from featured journals, users of Chemistry Central can discuss
articles, submit manuscripts, sign up for email alerts and find
out more about starting a new open access chemistry journal or
transferring an existing title to the Chemistry Central open
access model.
Today's launch of Chemistry Central is just a preview of what is
to come. Further open access chemistry journals will be launched
in the near future, including Chemistry Central Journal, which
will cover all areas of chemistry, broken down into
discipline-specific sections. Chemists who wish to support open
access to published research by playing an editorial role on this
major new journal should contact editorial a chemistrycentral.com.
Chemistry Central is part of the Open Access Central
(www.openaccesscentral.com) family of sites, announced today by
Science Navigation Group (press release available at
