The letter we received from the publisher dated June 2007 states,"On July
16, 2007 ICIS Chemical Business Americas and its sister title, ICIS
Chemical Business (Europe, Middle East and Asia Edition), will merge to
form one weekly global magazine, simply known as ICIS Chemical
Business."  We have received this issue and the succeeding one, and in
fact, the publisher information as Sarah  has  noted says "incorporating
Chemical Market Reporter, Asian Chemical News, Asia-Pacific
Chemicals,European Chemical News and Performance Chemicals Europe."  ICIS
Chemical Business Americas was formerly Chemical Market Reporter and ICIS
Chemical Business(Europe, Middle East and Asia Edition) is a Merger of:
European chemical news, and: Asian chemical news .  The issn is pending. We
have not processed the title change yet. Fortunately, I work in
Acquisitions not Cataloging :) but I thought I would pass on the
information that the publisher sent us in the mail.
