10 Tips for Scholarly Publishing with the ACS Editors
Elsa Reichmanis, Ph.D.
Executive Editor, Chemistry of Materials
Professor, and Pete Silas Chair in Chemical Engineering, School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
Elsa Reichmanis is Professor, and Pete Silas Chair in Chemical Engineering in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Georgia Tech she was Bell Labs Fellow and Director of the Materials Research Department at Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent. She received her Ph. D. and BS degrees in chemistry from Syracuse University. Her research interests include the chemistry, properties and application of materials technologies for photonic and electronic applications. She has had impact in the design of new imaging chemistries for advanced lithographic applications, and designed one of the first, readily accessible and manufacturable polymers for advanced silicon device manufacturing using 193 nm lithography. In a separate but related area, she designed and developed a nanoporous material exhibiting a dielectric constant as low as 1.4. The Reichmanis research group is currently exploring polymeric and hybrid organic/inorganic materials chemistries for electronic and photonic applications, plastic electronics in particular.
Bin Liu, Ph.D.
Deputy Editor, ACS Materials Letters
Fellow of Singapore Academy of Engineering, Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, the Royal Society of Chemistry
Bin Liu received a BS degree from Nanjing University and a Ph.D. degree from the National University of Singapore (NUS) before her postdoctoral training at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She joined the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of NUS in late 2005. She was promoted to Associate Professor in 2010 and was named as Chair Professor in 2014. Her current research focuses on organic nanomaterials for biomedical and energy applications. Dr. Liu has received many highly prestigious awards, including Singapore President’s Young Scientist Award 2008, L’Oréal Women in Science National Fellowship 2011, Asia Rising Star 2013, BASF Materials Award 2014, Materials in Society Lectureship 2015, Singapore President’s Technology Award 2016, and Asian Scientist Top 100 List in 2017. Dr. Liu was named as The World’s Most Influential Minds and the Top 1% Highly Cited Researchers in Materials Science by Thomson Reuters and Clarivate Analytics during 2014-2018. Dr. Liu is the Fellow of Singapore Academy of Engineering, Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, the Royal Society of Chemistry and serves as the Deputy Editor for ACS Materials Letters.
David Kaplan, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering
Professor & Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tufts University
David Kaplan holds an Endowed Chair, the Stern Family Professor of Engineering, at Tufts University. He is Professor & Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and also holds faculty appointments in the School of Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine, Department of Chemistry and the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. His research focus is on biopolymer engineering to understand structure-function relationships, with emphasis on studies related to self-assembly, biomaterials engineering and functional tissue engineering/regenerative medicine. He has published over 700 peer-reviewed papers and edited eight books and the studies include a variety of structural proteins (collagens, elastins, resilins, silks). The lab has pioneered the study of silk-based biomaterials in regenerative medicine, from fundamental studies of the biochemistry, molecular biology and biophysical features of this class of fibrous proteins to their impact on stem cell functions, medical device formation, complex tissue formation.
Li-Jun Wan, Ph.D.
Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS), and Beijing National Laboratory for Molecular Sciences (BNLMS)
Li-Jun Wan received his B.E and M.S degrees from Dalian University of Technology in 1982 and 1987, respectively, and Ph.D. from Tohoku University of Japan in 1996. Li-Jun Wan is an elected member of CAS, Fellows of TWAS, the Royal Society of Chemistry and International Society of Electrochemistry. Dr. Wan has developed effective in-situ techniques of electrochemical STM and AFM to monitor surface electrochemical process and construct complicate structures. His interests in electrochemistry and nanomaterial have also made him commit to battery-related fields. He has pioneered the design and synthesis of a series of electrode materials with emphasis on the structure-performance relationship.
