Nichols was encouraged to attend the symposium by Deep Bhattacharya, of Eastern Chemical, who serves as a technical editor of JCTR and who has also been involved with ISCST.
Further, he believes that even within that high-quality set of research, the strongest papers from the symposium were secured for the JCTR special issue.
That particular organization has such a nice mix between industrial relevance and academic work; it's appealing to us because that's exactly the base of research that JCTR generally is addressing.
For his part, Benkreira hopes that the collaboration between JCTR and ISCST will "develop broader awareness of the ISCST member research activities" and to encourage those who have not yet attended ISCST meetings to participate and add voices to the exchange of ideas taking place.
Although JCTR publishes research on these methods from time to time, Nichols explains it has not been a main area of focus.
JCTR is the official technical journal of ACA and the Oil and Colour Chemists' Association, and is published and distributed worldwide by Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
