Two new peer reviewers for BrewingScience
Fachverlag Hans Carl, Nuremberg, Germany, is pleased to announce two new peer reviewers for its scientific publication BrewingScience: Dr. Tatiana Praet, KU Leuven Technology Campus Ghent, Ghent, Belgium, and Dr. Frithjof Thiele, Radeberger Gruppe KG, Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
New reviewer Tatiana Praet Dr. Tatiana-Praet
Dr. Tatiana Praet works as research assistant at the Laboratory for Enzyme, Fermentation and Brewing Technology of KU Leuven. Her major research field is hops (hop aroma, hop oil volatiles, hopping technologies). After havening received her B.S. in Biomedical and Laboratory Technology and her M.S. in Industrial Engineering (chemistry/biochemistry) at KAHO Sint-Lieven, Ghent, Belgium she obtained her doctorate, with a thesis on "Chemical-analytical and sensorial characterization of the 'kettle hoppy' aroma of beer" at KU Leuven in April 2016. Currently Dr. Praet works as a postdoc researcher on a research project on beer flavour stability at KU Leuven. Dr. Thiele studied Brewing and Beverage Technology at the TU München-Weihenstephan and subsequently did his doctoral thesis at the Institute of Prof. Werner Back where he received his doctoral degree in 2006. From Weihenstephan he went to Ireland and worked as Senior Research Scientist at the University College Cork in the field of Cereal Science. Since 2009 he has been working for the Radeberger Gruppe KG in Germany, where he is responsible for Brewing Technology and New Product Development. His technological work focuses on brewhouse technology, fermentation technology and yeast as well as filtration. Dr. Thiele is a Member of the DBMB, VEW and ASBC.

High marks for BrewingScience
The results are always eagerly awaited: Beside the Thomson Reuters Corporation, which determines an impact factor as a measure reflecting the yearly average number of citations to articles recently published in scientific journals, the publisher Elsevier probably operates the best known database for peer-reviewed scientific publications: Scopus. The current bibliometric indicators for 2014 have now been published by Elsevier.
In contrast to the widespread impact factor, Elsevier also considers peculiarties such as, for instance, the lower number of publications in niche fields (which subsequently leads to a lower total citation rate), using special parameters such as SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), Impact per Paper (IPP) or Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP). This also compensates for certain industry-related disadvantages.
The Scopus-listed technical journal BrewingScience published by Fachverlag Hans Carl in Nuremberg again achieved favourable results for contributions related to brewing science, with an SJR of 0.302, an IPP of 0.393 and SNIP of 0.549. Especially regarding the Source Normalized Impact per Paper, BrewingScience is thus on par with the world's few other peer-reviewed scientific journals of the brewing industry.

Research Award
Ludwig Narziß Award for Brewing Science
The EUR 2,500 award is designed to formally recognize those BrewingScience publications in which the results are particularly relevant for application in the brewing industry. For further information please refer to this article.
