The August issue features the first article in a brand-new special series: the CJCE Perspective Article Special Series. As Editor-in-Chief João B. P. Soares writes in the preface to this new special series, also in this issue, “This new series will feature short articles, written as opinion pieces, discussing topics of pressing interest in several fields of chemical engineering… I hope you enjoy reading the first article in this series as much as I did.”

The Editor’s Choice article for the August issue is the first article in this new special series—an article by Athanasios Kritharis, I. Melih Tamer, and Vikramaditya G. Yadav, titled “Vaccine Production and Supply Need a Paradigm Change”. In the abstract, the authors note that in this article “We discuss the impact of COVID-19, the journey towards developing vaccines against the disease, and how biomanufacturing should evolve in order to meet similar challenges in the future.” Access this article now while it is free-to-read.

This month’s issue also features a new addition to the Emerging Leaders special series:

“A comparative study of model approximation methods applied to economic MPC”, by Zhiyinan Huang, Qinyao Liu, Jinfeng Liu, and Biao Huang.

As well as a new addition to the Experimental Methods Special Series—one of the issue highlights for this month:

“Experimental methods in chemical engineering: pH”, by Yanet Villasana, Nooshin Moradi, Carlos Navas-Cárdenas, and Gregory S. Patience.
