"Kagaku-to Kogyou" (Chemistry and Chemical Industry)
CCI is the medium by which CSJ members keep in touch with other members, and
which provides information on all areas of mutual interest. It is "easy reading"
for anybody who lacks expertise in areas outside his/her own research
The first issue of the CCI was a 28-page booklet published in 1948.
Today approximately 35,000 copies are circulated to the CSJ members as well as to
libraries in academia and industry.
The CCI provides accurate
update information from the CSJ to its members and presents attractive,
creative, and stimulating information related to chemical research, education,
technology, and industry.
To accomplish this, we include the news, schedules, and programs of the Annual Meetings, and
invitation notices and contents of international symposia, conferences, and
workshops co-hosted or supported by the CSJ. Further, under the supervision of
the editor-in-chief, the editorial committee of ca. 30 members compiles news,
topics, and commentaries concerning academic achievements and chemical
technology, and industry, education, and chemistry or science related social
issues with help from its subgroups; the Topics and News Committees.
Our style in editing the articles (commentaries, topics, and news) of the CCI varies
according to the demands of the times. At present, our policy is to make the commentaries on the articles and information required by our members interesting and easy to read and understand. Most importantly, we publish these articles
in a timely manner. As an example of this, in 2001 we chose Green and
Sustainable Chemistry as one of the topics of the CCI series with information and commentaries from various aspects. We are sure the information in CCI
can help CSJ members engaged in chemistry to acquire present and future
relevant perspectives of chemical research and the chemical industry.
"Kagaku-to Kyoiku" (Chemistry and Education)
Kagaku-to Kyoiku is the journal for the educational members and CSJ members concerned
with chemical education. It is published monthly by the Council of Chemical
Education. The volume in 2001 reached 850 pages, containing 167 articles invited
by the Editorial Committee, 67 papers submitted by authors and peer-reviewed, together with information from the Council.|
The invited papers fall into four categories; review articles of chemistry and chemical education
(Headlines), papers introducing recent topics of chemistry related to our
everyday life and industry (Radar), articles expounding the chemical phenomena
and substances described in chemistry
textbooks, and short articles summarizing
theoriginal procedures and techniques of experiments for high-school and
middle-school classes. The editorial policies are linked to those of the
Council, and the Editorial Committee assigns a part of the invited papers to
those presenting the activities of the Council, e.g., High-School Chemistry
Grand Prix and the Chemistry Week for school pupils.
In 2001, the Journal was
delivered to Council members (2,000 copies) and regular members (625 copies) as
well as to libraries of universities, colleges, and high schools (370
The titles, names of authors, and abstracts of all papers are
available as CD-ROM files, and they have been stored as PDF files in
the editorial office since June 2002. See the website of Kagaku-to Kyoiku
