Academic Journal
The article presents the author's opinion on a series of essays he was supposed to write for the periodical "Analytical & Bioanalytical Chemistry." He was beginning a new experiment, not in the familiar comfort of the laboratory with instruments and chemicals, but while sitting at his computer. He was starting an interesting series of monthly essays for the journal. As a historical aside, the genesis for this series was discussions with some of the journal's editors while he was writing the recent guest editorial on the role of graduate schools in preparing students for a career in industry.
