Welcome to the first issue of The Analytical Scientist. Our aim is to provide you with useful, credible and stylish content, and a forum for interaction, in print and online.
Analytical science demands such a forum. It is the engine that drives some of the most significant areas of basic science and it plays a key role in ensuring safe water, food security, effective medicines and diagnostics, efficient and sustainable energy, and the necessary tools for forensics and national security. Analytical science is central to our lives, as scientists and as citizens, and it deserves to be recorded, scrutinized and celebrated.
