Introducing the new Editor-in-Chief of PeerJ Physical Chemistry – Professor Jan H. Jensen

by | Jun 30, 2022 | Announcement, Chemistry, Community, Editor-in-Chief

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Jan Jensen as the Editor-in-Chief of PeerJ Physical Chemistry. Jan, who is a Professor at the University of Copenhagen, becomes PeerJ’s first Editor-in-Chief, and will work with the physical chemistry community, the journal’s Editorial Board, and the PeerJ team to drive the development of the journal from an editorial and community perspective.

You can find out more about Jan’s aims and ambitions for PeerJ Physical Chemistry in this interview:

Jan obtained his PhD in theoretical chemistry in 1995 from Iowa State University, working with Mark Gordon, where he continued as a postdoc until he joined the faculty at the University of Iowa in 1997. In 2006 he moved to the University of Copenhagen, where he is now Professor of bio-computational chemistry. As a respected researcher and an advocate for open science, Jan is perfectly placed to lead the uptake of Open Access, open peer review and impact neutrality in physical chemistry research publishing.

To celebrate Jan’s appointment, we will be waiving the Article Processing Charge for accepted articles that are submitted to PeerJ Physical Chemistry in August this year. We wanted to give you notice of this promotion, but if you’d like to submit sooner please contact the PeerJ Communities Team.
