Stuttgart –The international chemistry journals SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, published by Thieme Publishing Group, feature a brand new design. Both journals will appear with a new cover design and a more reader-friendly, clear layout.
The new design updates the look of SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, making them visually more appealing. Both the printed journals and the online versions will feature color-coded sections to help readers find articles and topics of interest even more quickly. The tables of contents include larger graphical abstracts which are repeated at the beginning of the respective articles. Graphics and tables within the articles are highlighted more clearly. Both journals also receive modern covers with new and distinctive title logos. Each issue will highlight one scientific article with an associated graphic on the cover.
"We want to deliver our content in a better, more consistent and easy-to-navigate way to improve the reading experience for our users," says Susanne Haak, Managing Editor of the Thieme Chemistry journals. "With the redesign we are also taking into account that nowadays most of our subscribers prefer reading our journals electronically. The new layout greatly improves online readability, e.g., through a header with the journal logo at the top of each article for better orientation."
The first printed issues of SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT to feature the new design will be published in January 2015 while the online versions are accessible by Mid-December. Individual articles in the new layout are already being published eFirst.
SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, both published in English, report the latest scientific developments in synthetic chemistry. The articles are selected, reviewed, and edited by an internationally renowned editorial board to guarantee chemists access to the latest research insights in their respective fields. The subscription journals are published semimonthly in printed and electronic format by Thieme Publishing Group. Articles and primary data can be accessed online at http://www.thieme-connect.de/ejournals, most of them prior to print publication.
