New OA journal of chemistry

Antony Williams, Announcing the ChemSpider Journal of Chemistry, ChemSpider Blog, December 12, 2008.

The ChemSpider Journal of Chemistry is an experiment. We intend to demonstrate how modern web technologies can be used to dramatically enhance the type of information that can be communicated using web-based tools over standard online publishing approaches. ...

We invite manuscripts from anybody interested in exposing their work in the field of chemistry and intersecting fields. ... We encourage submitters to challenge us to host your manuscripts in a manner which most clearly communicates your science. This may include hosting various forms of data made available to the public as Open Data, providing visualization tools for the display of molecules, spectra, images and videos. We intend to not be constrained and to make full use of web-based tools available today and coming online tomorrow. ...
