New ACS Books of Interest

The American Chemical Society has some of the most impressive journals, editors, and authors in the scientific community. Did you know that ACS also publishes book series? Some of these books are based on Symposia hosted at National and Regional Meetings – often organized by our own members! Others are focused on topics that are highly relevant to our community.

In 2020, a number of fantastic books were published that are directly related to the Mission and Vision of the Division of Professional Relations. In this post, we’ll highlight a few including links to where you can access. Thanks to all the authors and editors who took the time to compile these valuable resources!

Alternative Careers in Science

Editor(s):

Publication Date: June 30, 2020

This book emerged from shared interests and conversations over many years between former Ph.D. chemists, now leaders in science policy and industry who all share a commitment to public service.

While the training of Ph.D. chemists is generally targeted at a research career, the opportunities that lie beyond the degree are much more diverse. Nine Ph.D. chemists who chose careers outside of academia describe their career choices and reflect on advice they have looking back on their career path for those just starting theirs.
