Catalyst: Discovery into Practice
Accelerating Adoption of Innovative Wine and Grape Research and Technologies
DAVIS, CALIF., January 6, 2016….The highly respected American Journal of Enology and Viticulture (AJEV) will soon have a sister publication that picks up where AJEV leaves off. The American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) is moving forward with plans to publish a second journal, Catalyst: Discovery into Practice, to bridge the gap between basic research and the practical application of that science. The member-exclusive, peer-reviewed online publication is slated for release in June 2016.
Catalyst: Discovery into Practice is a newly launched journal from the American Society for Enology and Viticulture. The American Journal of Enology and Viticulture (AJEV) is ASEV’s flagship journal, publishing novel, foundational research in areas underpinning grape and wine production. AJEV’s focus is research, with a mission of “research to discovery.” Catalyst will complete the continuum, with translation of research into practice, and will focus on extending fundamental discoveries in the scientific disciplines to sustain and advance winemaking and grapegrowing.
We are pleased to offer the Call for Abstracts for the 67th ASEV National Conference in Monterey, California USA. We encourage submitted abstracts based on original research and research updates in all areas of viticulture and enology. Abstracts related to water management are also encouraged.
The national conference provides a forum for the presentation of research in the fields of enology and viticulture or related sciences. An abstract can be submitted independent of publication of a paper and we welcome abstracts for both ongoing and completed research projects.
