Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 14 novembre 2014

Françoise M. WinnikWASHINGTON, The American Chemical Society (ACS) announces that Françoise M. Winnik, Ph.D., will assume the role of editor-in-chief of the journal Langmuir. Winnik currently serves as a professor at the University of Montreal in the faculty of pharmacy and department of chemistry.Françoise M. Winnik, Ph.D. will succeed Editor-in-Chief David G. Whitten, Ph.D., who has served in this position since 1997 and will retire from the journal at the end of 2014. An interdisciplinary publication, Langmuir records progress in several areas, including colloids, interfaces and material science.Excited about taking the reins of such a well-respected journal, Winnik says she is “looking forward to making sure that Langmuir remains a high-quality, must-read journal for many years to come, and that it meets the needs and expectations of our readers, authors and reviewers.””Langmuir is the go-to journal for scientists working at the nexus of several fields related to materials science, nanoscience and nanotechnology,” Winnik continues. “The journal focuses on all aspects of interface and colloid science. And while this may seem limited in scope, it’s not. Interfaces and colloids are so diversified and ubiquitous around us! I have always been enthusiastic about Langmuir because of this breadth of topics among articles in every issue.”Winnik got her start in France, earning her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering in 1973 at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse. For her master’s and Ph.D. degrees, she went on to the University of Toronto, where she also conducted postdoctoral research. In 1981, she took a position as a research scientist at the Xerox Research Centre of Canada. After 12 years in the private sector, she became an associate professor in the departments of chemistry and physics at McMaster University in Canada. In 2000, she joined the ranks of her current institution, the University of Montreal. Winnik also is a principal investigator at the WPI International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics of the National Institute for Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan, and a Finnish distinguished professor at the University of Helsinki in Finland.The interdisciplinary research group she leads combines fundamental physical chemistry, polymer science and surface chemistry to applied fields, such as nanomedicine and nanotoxicity.”I am honored to welcome Dr. Winnik as editor-in-chief of Langmuir, and have no doubt that her enthusiasm, knowledge of the field, editorial experience and standing in the community will allow her to lead Langmuir to new heights over the coming years,” says Susan King, Ph.D., senior vice president of ACS Publications.Langmuir retains the preeminent position in colloid and interface science that it has established since its inception in 1985. It leads the field in terms of articles published (1,889 in 2013), citations captured (133,157 in 2013) and Impact Factor (4.384 in 2013). Despite its size, Langmuir also offers some of the fastest article processing times from submission to publication in the field.The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. With more than 161,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio. (photo Françoise M. Winnik)
