Chemical Information Bulletin Vol. 62(3) Fall 2010
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
r A k
This issue of the Chemical Information Bulletin (CIB) is the third one we
are publishing online. The first (Spring) issue was posted on the CINF web
page (www.acscinf.org) before the ACS Spring National Meeting. It
contained the technical program, the abstracts, awards information, book
reviews, and three interviews. The second (Summer) issue, which is the
equivalent of the former CINF eNews newsletter, was edited by Svetlana
Korolev and contained information about the ACS Spring National
As you will notice, CIB is still in a period of transition from print to online format - the functionality of the
product is not what we are used to seeing from the commercial publishers. I hope that for the next issues the
process will become smoother and easier.
Here in this issue you will find the usual categories - a Message from the Chair, Awards and Scholarships, Book
Reviews, Technical and Social programs, Abstracts, and a list of the CINF functionaries. Rajarshi Guha, chair of
Technical Program Committee highlights the technical program for the upcoming ACS Fall National Meeting (p.
11). Maryadele O'Neil, editor-in-chief of The Merck Index, discusses in an interview (p. 5) the history of this
famous resource and what it takes to publish each new edition. The two book reviews (p. 23) were written by
Bob Buntrock: (1) Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis: From the Science Citation Index to Cybermetrics, by
Nicola De Bellis and (2) Patents for Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, and Biotechnology, by Grubb & Thomsen. On
p. 4 you will be able to see who the CINF sponsors are. As always, we highly appreciate their financial support
for the Division.
In the near future, the CINF Executive Committee will be looking for my replacement, and those who are
interested and believe that they are qualified for this job should consider this exciting opportunity. Being the
editor of CIB for five years has allowed me to become acquainted with many interesting people. The editor's
position is a voluntary one, and I have been greatly helped by many colleagues from the Division who submitted
materials and proofread the issues. The journal is now published online, and it will be much easier for the next
editor to put together the issues - there will be no strict deadlines, as there will be no need to send it to the
I hope you will find this issue useful and enjoyable.
Svetla Baykoucheva, Editor
