ICIS Launches ICIS Connect
.: ICIS, publishers of the former Chemical Market Reporter, and now ICIS Chemical Business, has launched its new social community website, ICIS Connect. It a site described in an e-mail received today as one that ICIS hopes "will give our users, readers and people interested in chemicals a place on the web where they can ask questions and get answers, write their blogs, post their pictures and find information that will be generated by other users."
Of interest is the Forums section, which has a number of Discussions found under banners such as Business and Professional, Students, Consumer, and School. The only way for these discussion forums, and for the site itself to become active and robust is to spread the word, so please do so if you can - get the word out to your chemical engineering students and faculty members. I've already posted a entry under Schools about how good it would be to see Chemical Prices included as a separate discussion topic in the forum itself, as the lack of access to current chemical prices remains a serious sore point with us in chemical engineering academia. Nonetheless, I'm happy to see ICIS Connect is now available for everyone's use. Please register and see if we can contribute to making it a useful site for our students and researchers.
