Group of experts welcomes new members
Henrike Vorwerk succeeds Prof. Dr. Frank Rath as reviewer from VLB Berlin, Germany. Her focuses for the review process are brewing cereals, analytics / mass spectrometry and malting technologies. In October 2009, she started to work at the VLB Berlin as a research associate in the Research Institute for Raw Materials. Her scientific work mainly focused on special analyses of brewing cereals using mass spectrometric techniques. In January 2017, she became deputy head of the institute and in January 2018, she took over as head of the institute.
The expert group is also supported by Tobias Becher. Tobias graduated as diploma engineer of brewing science and beverage technology in 2001 at the Technical University of Munich in Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany. Since 2005 he is employed by Ziemann as an expert for process engineering and brewing technology. Today he is head of research and development within the Process Technology Division at Ziemann Holvrieka GmbH in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

BrewingScience receives quality label
Shortly before the end of 2017 we received great news: The scientific journal BrewingScience (the former „Monatsschrift für Brauwissenschaft“), published by Fachverlag Hans Carl, Nuremberg, has been selected for coverage in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). ESCI is a new database within Clarivate Analytics, a Thomson Reuters spin-off which has been in charge of the journal selection process since 2016. Thus, BrewingScience has reached the preliminary stage to receiving the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor, which is highly sought after in the scientific community, and has been represented in the Web of Science since the first edition of 2017, when coverage begun.
ESCI is part of the Web of Science Core Collection (a multidisciplinary bibliographic database with worldwide coverage, but U.S. American orientation). It considers, among other things, scientifically high-quality publications of at least regional importance. Journals indexed in the ESCI have to fulfill the same strict standards for scientific publications as for the Impact Factor.
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.
