In 2015 ChemPubSoc Europe started its Fellows Program to honor those who supported the joint publishing activities of their national chemical societies fostering the European spirit in science in a very special way. Their belief in scientific excellence and publishing ethics is the foundation on which the success of ChemPubSoc Europe is built. 2020 marks 25 years since the birth of Chemistry A European Journal. To date 16 European Societies together with the publisher Wiley-VCH have developed a program of 16 journals that serve the needs of chemists around the world; more than 9 000 articles, ca. 250 000 citations and ca. 13.5 million Full Text Downloads were recorded in 2019 alone. A new legacy has been created.
