Chemistry professor invited to write peer-reviewed article

2021-02-23-Aimee Tomlinson
Dr. Aimée Tomlinson, professor of chemistry in the College of Science and Mathematics, was invited to submit a manuscript for the journal's special issue honoring women in chemical physics and physical chemistry.

Since she arrived at the University of North Georgia (UNG) in 2007, Dr. Aimée Tomlinson has had 18 papers published in peer-reviewed journals. Her most recent publication in the "Journal of Chemical Physics" was unexpected.

Tomlinson, professor of chemistry in the College of Science and Mathematics, was invited to submit a manuscript for the journal's special issue honoring women in chemical physics and physical chemistry. The journal is a publication of the American Institute of Physics.

"This is the first time I was invited as the main author," she said, explaining she had been invited several times before as part of a collaborative group. "It was nice to be recognized at that level, especially since I teach at a primarily undergraduate institution. Most of those invited will be from R-1 institutions."

According to the Carnegie Classifications of Institutions of Higher Education, R-1 are doctoral universities with very high research activities.

Tomlinson's paper, "Guiding Synthetic Targets of Anodically Coloring Electrochromes Through Density Functional Theory," is the first of two accepted for publication in 2021. The second paper titled "Exploring Isomeric Effects on Optical and Electrochemical Properties" will be published in Macromolecules, a journal of the American Chemical Society.

"Both journals are pretty highly thought of," Tomlinson said. "Having peer-reviewed journals accept your articles says that your work is important."
