报告摘要 ：This talk is split into two parts. I begin with developing models of the self-assembly of soft functional nanomaterials. Molecular self-assembly involves the use of hydrogen bonds and other noncovalent interactions between molecules to create supramolec ular structures that can function as nanomaterials for diagnostics, optical devices and other applications. A goal for theory is to be able to predict and understand what structures will arise for any given set of conditions, and how the self-assembly can be directed so as to produce useful functional structures. Here I will describe recent studies in my group in collaboration with the Stupp and Mirkin groups at Northwestern, and with others, with the goal of making nanostructured materials with broad applications.
The second part of the talk is concerned with how to publish the results of scientific research, based on my experiences as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry (JPC) during 2005-19. Success in publication starts with understanding the scope of the journal when authors choose which journals to submit to. Most journals have a statement about scope on their web page, and JPC has published a series of 20 Viewpoint articles concerning this issue, along with an editorial that shows how to think about these Viewpoint articles in selecting journals.
Impact factors have taken over the publishing business, but The Impact Factor refers to citations within a two year period, so it is a short term measure of manuscript visibility, and it is also sensitive to citation practices in different communities. This leads to huge differences between impact factors for science in different fields that are unrelated to manuscript quality.
Publication ethics issues remain an important concern in scientific publication. In this part of the talk. I will present some case studies that reveal a number of complicated situations that can arise even for what might be considered “routine publications”.
