International Journal of Quantum Chemistry
2012-07-13 15:02:28

The International Journal of Quantum Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1967 by Per-Olov Lowdin. The journal moved to an in-house editorial office model in 2011, enlisting a permanent team of professional editors. It publishes original, primary research and review articles on all aspects of quantum chemistry, including an expanded scope focusing on aspects of materials science, biochemistry, biophysics, quantum physics, and quantum information theory.

Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
