The August issue of Can. J. Chem. Eng. features Part II of the Special Issue in honour of Dr. Jamal Chaouki, professor from the Department of Chemical Engineering, École Polytechnique de Montréal—Part I of which was featured in the July issue. For this special issue, guest editors Professors Rahmat Sotudeh-Gharebagh and Xiaotao Bi have invited friends, associates, and students of Dr. Chaouki to contribute articles to highlight his substantial academic achievements and significant impact on the scientific community. Our last story delved into the Preface to this special issue, which highlights what inspired the guest editors to coordinate this collection of articles. Access Part II of this special issue and read more about the important work done by this outstanding professor, innovator, and leader.
This month’s issue also features two new additions to our Established Leaders Special Series: Parts I and II of an article by Oumaima Chaib, Ines E. Achouri, MCIC, Ryan Gosselin, and Nicolas Abatzoglou, MCIC, “Gravity mass powder flow through conical hoppers – Part I: A mathematical model predicting the radial velocity profiles of free-flowing granular systems as a function of cohesion and adhesion properties” and “Gravity mass powder flow through conical hoppers – Part II: A mathematical model predicting the axial and radial profiles of normal stresses from flow velocity measurements.” These two articles will be free access for a short period of time, so be sure to explore them soon. Also included in this issue is a new Experimental Methods in Chemical Engineering Special Series article: “Experimental methods in chemical engineering: High performance liquid chromatography—HPLC” by Dalma Schieppati, MCIC, Nicolas A. Patience, MCIC, Sebastiano Campisi, and Gregory S. Patience, MCIC.
We have also received very exiting news: Can. J. Chem. Eng.’s impact factor has increased from 1.687 to 2.007! This increase marks our impact factor reaching an all-time high, which is certainly a reason to celebrate, particularly because our impact factor has now increased three years in a row, in 2019, 2020, and now 2021. This would not have been possible without our authors—and the high-quality research they publish with our journal—as well as the dedication of our reviewers, associate editors, editorial boards, and editorial team. Thank you for helping us reach this milestone!
