2013 is shaping up to be a great year for the RSC so far!

The National Chemical Database Service, hosted by the RSC, is now live as part of a five year contract, funded by EPSRC http://cds.rsc.org/. Currently providing access to a series of commercial databases and services primarily for crystallographers and materials chemists, our aim is to expand the data sources within the NCDS so it is applicable to a wider range of chemical scientists. There will be provision to offer users: data management, data sharing, funder mandates and open science. We are also pleased to announce Materials Horizons, a new peer-reviewed journal for first reports of exceptional significance across the breadth of materials research. From launch until December 2015, all content will be free to access online, the first issue publishing in late 2013.
