Subject: [RSC] Library Photograph Competition

Dear All

Have you seen the Royal Society of Chemistry's (RSC) library in London,

For the past year, the library has been represented on the front cover of
the RSC Publishing Catalogue 2011 and distributed worldwide at
conferences, exhibitions, by our sales team, agents, distributors and by

This month, I am updating our RSC Publishing Catalogue and would like to
continue the theme and feature an international library on the front of
our 2012 Catalogue, helping to raise the profile of the library and the
facilities on offer.  This theme will continue every year for several

There are so many fantastic libraries in the world, whether
architecturally, academically, historically or in terms of resources and
support, so to help us find the right image, we are starting an annual
competition.  This competition will be judged by RSC and our external RSC
Library Advisory Board.

       AIP and NIST Make Semiconductor Research Freely Available Online

Melville, NY, June 6, 2011 - AIP Publishing, a division of the American
Institute of Physics (AIP) (, announces that through an
agreement with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST),
proceedings papers from the entire International Conference on Frontiers
of Characterization and Metrology for Nanoelectronics (formerly
Characterization and Metrology for ULSI Technology) series are now freely
available from both organizations' websites.

"Publishing papers from these NIST conferences is the most effective way
to disseminate the breakthroughs in semiconductor research presented at
these meetings. To maximize the reach of these papers, we are now offering
them to the public free of charge," said John Haynes, AIP vice president,
publishing. "We hope that our decision will help to bring this vital
information to the desktops of researchers worldwide and speed the rate of
innovation in semiconductor technology."

David Seiler, chief of NIST's Semiconductor Electronics Division,
characterizes this agreement to make the proceedings freely available as a
major breakthrough, as it will help professionals in the fast-paced
semiconductor industry get up to speed on unfamiliar measurement and
characterization issues. In addition, they can learn about new techniques
and equipment being introduced to characterize semiconductors.

"These collected proceedings represent research and overviews of critical
topics collected from worldwide experts in the field of semiconductor
characterization and metrology," says Seiler. "As there is frequent
turnover in the industry, there is constant need for training and
retraining of employees. Improved access to this background will ease that
process dramatically."

Proceedings volumes are available in PDF format, up to and including the
2009 conference, on AIP's website at, and on NIST's website

About AIP

The American Institute of Physics is an organization of 10 physical
sciences societies representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers,
and educators and is one of the largest publishers of scientific
information in physics. AIP also delivers valuable resources and expertise
in education and student services, science communication, government

electronic publishing of scholarly journals. AIP publishes 13 journals,
two magazines-including its flagship publication, Physics Today-and the
AIP Conference Proceedings series. Scitation, AIP's online publishing
platform, hosts 1.6 million articles from 190 scholarly journals,
proceedings, and eBooks of learned society publishers. AIP also provides
the international physical science community with UniPHY, the first
literature-based social and professional networking site; it features
pre-populated profiles of more than 300,000 scientists and enables
collaboration among researchers worldwide.

About NIST

Founded in 1901, NIST is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S.
Department of Commerce. NIST's ( mission is to promote U.S.

ACS Macro Letters and ACS Synthetic Biology

ACS Publications adds two new peer-reviewed journals to its portfolio of
most trusted, most cited, most read journals. For each of these new
journals, articles will be published online in fall 2011, with first full
issues appearing January 2012:

ACS SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY Publishing cutting edge molecular, systems, and
synthetic research.

ACS Synthetic Biology will define the field of synthetic biology by
publishing original research that demonstrates integrative, molecular
approaches enabling us to better understand the organization and function
of cells, tissues, and organisms in systems. Moreover, articles will
demonstrate the application of synthetic biology to manipulate these

Led by Dr. Christopher A. Voigt of Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
who was appointed as Editor-in-Chief, the Journal is particularly
interested in fostering studies on the design and synthesis of new genetic
circuits and gene products; structure-guided and computer-aided design of
biomolecules; and integrative applied approaches to disease and

For more information, visit the ACS Synthetic Biology website:

ACS MACRO LETTERS Offering the fastest time to publication in polymer

Publishing findings within four to six weeks of submission, ACS Macro
Letters will report major advances in all areas of contemporary soft
matter science in which macromolecules play a key role, including
nanotechnology, self-assembly, supramolecular chemistry, biomaterials,
energy generation and storage, and renewable/sustainable materials. ACS
Macro Letters will complement the comprehensive full articles published in
Macromolecules, the most cited journal in polymer science:

ACS Macro Letters will be led by Editor Timothy P. Lodge, who is also
Editor of Macromolecules. Dr. Lodge is Distinguished McKnight University
Professor at the University of Minnesota. Stuart J. Rowan will serve as
Deputy Editor for the new journal. Dr. Rowan is Kent Hale Smith Professor
at Case Western Reserve University.
