American Geophysical Union and Wiley Launch New Open Access Journal, Earth and Space Science

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the creation of a new all open access peer-reviewed journal, Earth and Space Science.

Marking AGU’s second new open access journal in the last 12 months, Earth Space and Science is the only journal that reflects the expansive range of science represented by AGU’s 62,000 members, including all of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, and related fields in environmental science, geoengineering, space engineering, and biogeochemistry.

Earth and Space Science joins a prestigious portfolio of research publications that are governed by AGU’s rigorous peer review process. This includes the highly ranked Geophysical Research Letters and Journal of Geophysical Research – Atmospheres, and Earth’s Future—an innovative open access publication that features trans-disciplinary research, editorials, and essays emphasizing the Earth as an interactive, evolving system under the influence of the human enterprise—which was successfully launched in late 2013.

The journal will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution License enabling authors to be fully compliant with open access requirements of funding organizations where applicable. The publication fee will be competitive with those of other broad open access journals.

A search is now underway for Earth and Space Science’s inaugural editor in chief, who will lead a team of preeminent academic editors who are closely connected to their communities.

ChemistryOpen hot off the press!

Chemopen The current Issue of ChemistryOpen includes an exciting Communication on a Non-ATP-Mimetic Organometallic Protein Kinase Inhibitor. Eric Meggers, Holger Steuber and co-workers present an organometallic inhibitor scaffold for Pim kinases. These are interesting targets for cancer therapy as they are overexpressed in various human cancers. Usually kinase inhibitors are ATP competitive. However, as shown in a cocrystal structure with Pim1, their presented organometallic compound (based on a cyclometalated 1,8-phenanthrolin-7(8H)-one ligand) presents an unexpected non-hinge binding scaffold and could be a suitable lead structure for the development of potent and selective non-hinge-binding ATP-competitive inhibitors of Pim kinases.

In the Full Paper of this issue, Giampaolo Barone, F. Matthias Bickelhaupt and co-workers report on their dispersion-corrected density functional studies for the investigation of the DNA double helix structure. They calculate how B-DNA structure stability correlates with its nucleic acid composition and are able to show that the stability of the structure not only depends on the number of hydrogen bonds in Watson-Crick base pairs but also depends on the base pair order and orientation.

The newest contribution to ChemistryOpen‘s Thesis Treasury from Rafael Gramage-Doria features metallocyclodextrins. In his thesis he found that upon encapsulation of metal fragments in the cavity of a b-cyclodextrin-derived diphosphane, otherwise unstable metal species can be formed and coordination processes can be slowed down, which allows investigating mechanistic pathways for carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions.
