Manuscript mail

Time-sensitive mail (inquiries, referee reports, petitions, etc.) concerning manuscripts for which I am acting as editor at Journal of the American Chemical Society or Computer Physics Communications should be sent to . Messages sent to the editor address will go straight to my secretary, Ms. Flurnia Hadley-Davis. They read and expedite the mail sent to that address every morning. They bring any mail that needs my personal attention to me in the most efficient possible way. This system prevents delay when I am unavailable and ensures that manuscript correspondence is always handled in a timely fashion. Manuscript correspondence should always include the name of the journal, your name, the name of the first author of the manuscript, and the title or complete file number of the paper. Thank you for your attention to these points.

General email for Theoretical Chemistry Accounts should go to Email specifically directed to me as Chief Advisory Editor of TCA should go to the address below.
