WEINHEIM, GERMANY, November 2, 2011 – Wiley-VCH, part of the scientific and technical publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

“The partnership combines our society’s editorial experience with Wiley-VCH’s professional expertise, global marketing activity and excellent track record of publishing and developing top chemical society journals”, said Professor Chien-Hong Cheng, President of the Chemical Society Located in Taipei. “I am particularly pleased that individual society members will enjoy complimentary access to the Journal of the Chinese Chemical Society in Wiley Online Library for several years.”
Professor Yu Wang, esteemed Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Chinese Chemical Society and head of the editorial office situated at National Taiwan University in Taipei commented: “In times of decreasing print circulation, state-of-the-art online presence is a very important criterion for the sustainability of scientific journals.
