The American Chemical Society, (ACS) was formed in 1876 and is headquartered in Washington D.C. ACS is a professional association with over 160,000 members comprised of all degree levels. ACS supports scientific inquiry in the field chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields. ACS publishes current discover news on its Web site and publishes various journals including The Journal of the American Chemical Society. The Chemical Abstracts Service is a funding resource for ACS. The Chemical & Engineering News is a weekly publication sent to all of its members. ACS certifies undergraduate programs in chemistry at the college and university level. ACS has fought against open-access to scientific abstracts.
