News Releases


WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2022 — In a joint statement from ACS Chair of the Board of Directors Paul W. Jagodzinski and ACS CEO Thomas Connelly Jr., the American Chemical Society (ACS) reaffirms its support of its independent news outlet, Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN):

“We want to assure you that the American Chemical Society remains fully committed to the success of Chemical & Engineering News. The recent reorganization of C&EN as described in Monday’s editorial positions C&EN to better provide our membership with information about ACS activities and efforts. The change does not impact C&EN’s ability to continue to produce the independent, world-class science journalism that it is known for.

“With the full support of ACS, C&EN remains committed to its mission of gathering and delivering news and stories for professionals in the chemistry enterprise from academia, industry and beyond that they cannot find anywhere else. As a top member benefit, we will continue to do all we can to provide direction and resources for C&EN that position it for the future.”
