Last Printed Issue of JSC News

Dear readers of JSC News,

Those of you who have received the printed version of JSC News so far will certainly be surprised to learn that today’s issue bears the number 275. Due to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic – at first with basic operations and then with adjusted normal operations at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the resulting reduced availability of personnel on site – it has not been possible to send the newsletter by mail in the conventional way since April. At a time when home office work had become commonplace and presence at an institute workplace rare, it was also uncertain whether printed copies would reach their recipients during these time periods. Therefore, issues 271 to 274 were sent exclusively as e-mail versions.

JSC has decided to send its newsletter only by e-mail in future and to offer it online. For this reason, this will be the last printed issue of JSC News. For almost four years now, it has been possible to subscribe to JSC News by e-mail. Anybody who wants to receive the e-mail version is invited to subscribe to the mailing list by sending an e-mail without any content to and confirming the registration afterwards. Furthermore, JSC News will always be available online at along with the e-mail version and PDF files.

So please stay tuned. We look forward to welcoming many of our nearly 1,000 recipients as online subscribers soon.

Contact: Dr. Sabine Höfler-Thierfeldt,
