The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has announced the appointment of Dr. Philip J. Proteau of Oregon State University as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Natural Products.
Under Proteau’s leadership, the journal will increasingly focus on significant studies on natural products biosynthesis. The journal will also introduce ‘perspectives’ types of articles so that experts in the field can add to research on the current strengths and limitations of new techniques, instrumentation or other emerging areas within the field of natural products. The Journal of Natural Products will continue to maintain its strength in publishing impactful contributions on bioactive natural products, and studies exploring unique aspects of the chemistry of natural products will also remain welcome.
Proteau is an associate professor at Oregon State University’s college of pharmacy, where he leads a laboratory researching various aspects of the chemistry and biology of natural products. These projects incorporate a blend of natural products chemistry, organic synthesis and spectroscopy.
Established in 1979, the Journal of Natural Products publishes papers that make substantial and scholarly contributions to the area of natural products research. Research may relate to the chemistry and/or biochemistry of naturally occurring compounds or the biology of living systems from which they are obtained. With over 1 million article downloads during 2019, and an impact factor of 4.257, the Journal of Natural Products is well regarded as a leading journal in its field.
