Science Reviews 2000 Ltd is an independent, family owned academic publisher founded by Dr Peter and Professor Margaret Farago. Peter and Margaret met whilst studying chemistry at University College, London, UK and began their publishing business over 40 years ago.
Peter Farago went on to a career in scientific journalism culminating in his editorship of Chemistry in Britain (now Chemistry World). On his retirement from the RSC he concentrated on building up his own publishing company which set out to provide affordable, cutting-edge journals and books to scientists worldwide. Peter sadly died on 7th June 2013.
Margaret Farago continued in academia, and went on to teach and research in chemical aspects of environmental chemistry. Indeed, with Peter some 25 years ago they began Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability. This journal publishes papers in an interdisciplinary forum that explore the chemical, physical, biological and ecological effects of chemical species in the environment. Her academic work took her to Bedford College, Royal Holloway College and then to Imperial College London where she became professor. After her retirement in the UK, she became a Visiting Professor at Northwestern University in Chicago, USA. This move enabled her and Peter to be closer to their daughter Catherine Henchek.
Catherine studied journalism at Northwestern University and settled in Chicago, where she worked on the editorial staff of a trade publication then in the communications department of an insurance company. Always interested in the family business, during this time she took on numerous freelance projects for the company. Following Peter’s retirement in 2005, she was delighted to take over the company.
Sara Nash has worked in publishing ever since finishing her degree in chemistry and physics in 1974. Her first appointment was as a copyeditor on Chemistry in Britain under Peter’s editorship. She moved to Nature after 3 years to become earth sciences copyeditor, leaving there to work with Peter and Margaret in 1984. She took overall charge of their editorial production work in 1990.
Christine Evans completes the in-house team with her background in print, design and office management. She also adds financial experience and marketing acumen to her work as administration manager. Her creative influence can be appreciated in our journals, our Web design and advertising. She also "tweets" on behalf of Science Reviews 2000 Ltd.
Together with its international team of editors and advisory board members, Science Reviews 2000 Ltd continues with its first aim of providing affordable world class information to all scientific disciplines in both industry and academia.
