I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Professor of Chemistry and the Dean of the Faculty of Science at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at the University of Windsor.

Carlo Santini

Carlo Santini is Associate Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Camerino and in 2013 he received the qualification of Full Professor in Fundamentals of Chemical Sciences and Inorganic Systems. He coordinated the Doctoral Area in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Biotechnologies of the School of Advanced Studies and since 2015 he has been the head of the Chemistry Division of the School of Science and Technology of the University of Camerino. His research interests are in coordination and organometallic chemistry, in functional metal
complexes and metal-based drugs.

Rogerio R Sotelo-Mundo

Prof. Sotelo-Mundo contributes as an academic editor in PeerJ, PeerJ Inorganic. Chemistry and PeerJ Materials Science. He holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from The University of Arizona (USA) with Prof. William Montfort. Back in Mexico in 1999 at Centro de Investigación en Alimentación y Desarrollo (, Dr. Sotelo-Mundo has contributed to the biochemistry and structural biology of proteins from marine invertebrates. Being at a food science institute has applied biochemistry to food science and technology. Also, he collaborates in the materials science graduate program at Universidad de Sonora as a visiting professor, participating in research about macrocyclic biomimetic molecules. His research focuses on the structure and function of proteins related to disease, and the chemical structure of natural and synthetic molecules related to biomedical applications. The experimental approach is the crystallography of proteins and small molecules, along with biochemical and biophysical techniques. Our group collaborates with a range of groups from disciplines from genomics and metagenomics, biochemistry, supramolecular chemistry, and material sciences. PubMed ResearchGate and Publons
