Publications Committee

About us

SCI has an internationally admired publications portfolio including Chemistry & Industry, learned journals, and books that is a major generator of income and also serves to promulgate the reputation of the Society as a charity that facilitates and promotes science communication.

The Publications Committee (PC), a sub-committee of the Board of Trustees (BoT), is responsible for advising the BoT on all SCI publishing activities and strategies, the strategic and business development of the existing portfolio and the development of new publication products across the full range of modern publishing platforms.

You can find out more about PC's remit by referring to the Terms of Reference.

How to get involved

PC members bring a wide range of science and business experience that benefits the committee. In-depth experience of publishing is not a pre-requisite for membership – this develops through participation in PC - and new perspectives are especially welcomed.

The Chair of the PC is appointed by the Board of Trustees, and the committee comprises the Editors in Chief of SCI's learned journals plus ordinary members elected at SCI's AGM.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Publications Committee and how to contribute ideas, and opinions, please contact the SCI Membership Team. Elections for new Committee Members take place at the AGM every July.

PC Committee Meetings

PC meets up to two times a year. Each year there is an Open meeting, which all members are invited to attend.
