New Algal Research Journal to Launch

April 13, 2012.

A new scientific journal for the algal industry, Algal Research, is being launched in May, 2012, by Elsevier, an international provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services.

Dr. Jose Olivares, appointed Co-Editor-in-Chief of Algal Research said, "After the 1st International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts held St. Louis in July 2011 last year, it was evident that colleagues in the algal science community were clamoring for dedicated venues where the latest results from high quality research and innovation can be presented. This led to the creation a new international research journal dedicated to all aspects of algal research."

"Algal research is a growing field. I believe it's very important to nurture this growth by facilitating peer-reviewed communication. The journal will serve as an excellent platform for scientists to showcase their latest findings," Dr. Richard Sayre, Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal added.

The journal publishes original scientific research papers, review articles and invited commentaries from scientific community, and is fully peer-reviewed. All articles published in Algal Research are available online through ScienceDirect; first articles are now freely available.

The editors invite the international algal scientific community to publish papers in the areas of microalgae, macroalgae and cyanobacteria research, and their applications.
