This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Beilstein-Institut as a non-profit foundation.
Since 1951, when we were founded by the Max Planck Society, our mission is to support the scientific community by disseminating high-quality publications and information in the chemical and related science.
We would like to thank our authors, editors, board members, speakers and participants of our talks and symposia, and last but not least, our employees for supporting us in fulfilling the foundation’s mission to advance the chemical and related sciences.
The Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry and the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology are fully Plan S compliant. Researchers who are financially supported by organizations endorsing Plan S (e.g., European Commission) are assured that publishing in our platinum open access journals will fulfill their funder publishing requirements.
Both the registration and application for poster is open now for the Beilstein Enzymology Symposium "Synthetic Biology and Applied Biocatalysis" to be held online September 21-23, 2021.
We are currently recruiting guest editors for our two platinum open access journals to suggest and edit future thematic issues. Apply today and benefit your career by gaining editorial experience and joining our network of authors, reviewers, and editors.
The symposium will take place online from June 23 - 25. It provides interested participants the opportunity to attend 30 lectures and to present a poster or a piece of software.
We are happy to announce that the Beilstein-Institut is now an official member of the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM). We are looking forward to our future cooperation to advance scientific research together with some of the biggest names in publishing!
Dr. Martin G. Hicks, Member of the Board of Management of the Beilstein-Institut, retired on January 31, 2021. He has held numerous functions and played a significant role in the development of the Beilstein-Institut for over 35 years. As his successor, the foundation council has appointed Dr. Wendy Patterson, who takes on her new role as of February 1, 2021.
Dr. Wendy Patterson, a native of the United States, is a physicist who joined the scientific editorial team of the Beilstein-Institut in 2014. In 2016, she became Managing Editor of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology. Three years later, she also took over the role as Managing Editor of the Beilstein Archives, which is currently a preprint server for the Beilstein journals. With her experience in various scientific disciplines and her broad international network, she will continue the successful work of her predecessor.
The continuity of the foundation’s activities, which are centered on long-term projects supporting information and communication, will be maintained under the new leadership. The main focus of the foundation’s work is on the Beilstein Open Access Journals, the scientific symposia and the support of innovative projects to advance the chemical and related sciences.
The registration to the online Beilstein Open Science Symposium 2020 - "Enabling Open Science" is FREE and open now. Participants are also welcome to submit a poster application. The meeting will take place online on the 27th and 28th of October from 3 - 6 pm (CET, UTC+1).
