Over the past decade the magazine has won or been nominated for several awards
Chemistry World has been awarded the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP)/Charlesworth Award for Best New Journal. Applications were invited for any print and/or electronic journal worldwide launched since 2000. The entries were judged on the basis of content, appearance and the effectiveness of the launch campaign.
Phil Abrahams, publisher, Chemistry World, said: ‘We are delighted to win the award. We took a bold decision to start afresh with a completely new membership magazine, closing down an established predecessor [Chemistry in Britain]. Chemistry World was more than a change of name: radical new designs were used to support a more topical, wide-ranging, higher quality editorial style, to make our coverage more accessible and relevant to a diverse readership. Our readers have reacted positively.’
