ANTHONY FORD, T.; KRUGER, Hendrik G.  and  LOYSON, Peter. The South African Journal of Chemistry 1918-2018: A Celebration. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2019, vol.72, pp.201-206. ISSN 1996-840X.

In celebration of the centenary of the first publication of the South African Journal of Chemistry, the history of the Journal is traced, with reference to the personalities involved in its development and its relationship with the South African Chemical Institute. The impact of online publishing on the format of the Journal and the ways in which the handling of submitted manuscripts have changed over time are discussed. Some statistics are presented illustrating the changing topicality of the various chemistry disciplines over time, as well as the expansion of the potential pool of authors arising from the internationalization of the scientific publishing field. Reference is also made to the quantitative measures by which the integrity and international acceptance of the Journal are judged.

Keywords : History; personalities; online publishing; statistics.
