The American Chemical Society is cutting back, laying off 56 employees or three percent of its workforce. Most of the layoffs, 40, are in the society's Publications Division with nine of the Chemical and Engineering News staff and 10 of C&EN's Journal News & Community Department being let go. Brian Crawford, the publications director says the cuts are due to declining ad revenues for C&EN and cancellation of print subscriptions overall. The society will also be making reductions to operating expenses and retiree medical benefits.
