The Emerging Investigator Series has an overall objective to showcase significant research by newer voices from across the worldwide organic chemistry research community. We will consider additional applications and nominations on their own merit. Self-nominations are also strongly encouraged.
Both research articles and review articles are welcome to the series. Papers accepted for publication in the Emerging Investigator Series will be published in the earliest available issue and collated together in a dedicated Emerging Investigator Series page that will appear across Frontiers journals’ websites. All submissions to the Emerging Investigator Series will be subject to the journal’s high standards in peer review.
In order to be featured in the Emerging Investigator Series, contributors must:
- currently, be an independent research leader
- be the lead author (first author and/or corresponding author) of their article at the journal
- have either a) hold a PhD degree and be at the age of 40 or less in the year of submission, or b) received their PhD no earlier than 01 January of the year 12 years prior to the year of submission, or c) have no more than 12 years of post-PhD research experience on 01 January in the year of submission when taking into account any career breaks.
If you are interested to contribute to this series, please provide an up-to-date CV to the Editorial Office before submission, or simply opt-in for this series during submitting your manuscript and attach the CV as a supporting document.
