The November 2020 Issue of The Analytical Scientist is a special one. To start, we have a great guest editorial from Candice Ulmer, Michelle Reid and Christina Jones (cofounders of the Coalition of Black Mass Spectrometrists). Their chosen topic: equality in analytical science. Isiah Warner, Devin Swiner and Renã Robinson then join them in our cover feature “Holding a Mirror to Analytical Science,” which explores the issue of racism in science – alongside suggestions for a brighter future. Also on offer: an opinion piece on inclusive change from Bhavik Patel and an extended interview with Antarctic explorer-stroke-chemist, Paul Mayewski. Some articles will be online earlier. Stay tuned.
