ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Journal articles made easy are journal articles from a range of Royal Society of Chemistry journals that have been re-written into a standard, accessible format. They contain links to the associated Chemistry World article, ChemSpider entries, related journal articles, books and Learn Chemistry resources such as videos of techniques and resources on theory and activities. They should facilitate students understanding of scientific journal articles and how to extract and interpret the information in them.
