We begin the year at ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering (ACS SCE) celebrating a growing field that is playing an increasingly important role in global chemistry and engineering. In 2017, for the fourth consecutive year, ACS SCE published a record number of manuscripts, covering topics including, but not limited to, atom economical chemical transformations using novel catalysts, use of biorenewable feedstock in fuel and chemical manufacturing, benign solvents, synthesis of sustainable chemical processes, novel electro/photocatalytic processes for H2O and CO2 conversion, and use of advanced nanomaterials for sustainable chemistry/engineering applications. Our authors have drawn increasing attention to the journal and the field by making fundamental advances in these areas and by developing innovative and sustainable chemical products and processes. This increased attention is evidenced by the journal’s impact factor, which rose to 5.95 this year and continues on an upward trajectory. We are grateful to our authors, reviewers, early career board and editorial advisory board members for their valuable contributions in enhancing the visibility and impact of our journal. As our field continues to grow and evolve, ACS SCE will seek to engage our authors, readers, and reviewers in guiding that evolution.
