Analytical Communications

In 1999, the Royal Society of Chemistry closed the journal Analytical Communications because it felt that the material submitted to that journal would be best included in a new communications section of Analyst. Predecessor journals of Analytical Communications were Proceedings of the Society for Analytical Chemistry, 1964–1974; Proceedings of the Analytical Division of the Chemical Society, 1975–1979; Analytical Proceedings, 1980–1993; Analytical Proceedings including Analytical Communications, 1994–1995.
