"description": "<p>In this open letter, I will explain why I intend to step down as Editor-in-Chief of the <em>Journal of&nbsp;Cheminformatics</em>, which also happens to be a Springer Nature journal. It took me two years to&nbsp;come to this decision, and it cannot be claimed that I did not carefully evaluate the various&nbsp;aspects of it. However, I have now come to the conclusion that the opportunity it gives me to&nbsp;implement my ambition to shape open science chemistry now conflicts with the interests of&nbsp;Springer Nature. I will here outline some of the things I have taken into consideration.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
