John Wiley and Sons is a leading publisher of books, journals, textbooks, and databases for chemists, students, and the general public. In celebration of IYC 2011, we will be publishing special books including "Letters to a Young Chemist," in which today's chemistry luminaries explain how chemistry research makes for an exciting career choice. It is a must-have for chemistry majors, graduate students, high school and college teachers, as they chart their own careers as well as guide the careers of their students in chemistry.

Throughout the year, Wiley will celebrate Chemistry with special journal issues, virtual conferences on, a student video contest, and monthly celebrations of important chemical topics.
