Chemistry Central Journal is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal encompassing all aspects of chemistry.
The journal covers research in all areas of chemistry, including analytical, biological, environmental, industrial, inorganic, organic, physical and theoretical chemistry as well as materials science, and is divided into over fifty subject areas. Section Editor(s) and Editorial Board Members can be found here.
Chemistry Central Journal offers scientists the opportunity to publish their research rapidly in an open access medium that is freely available online to researchers worldwide. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to rigorous peer review. Published material may include electronic supplementary material, such as animations (e.g., MOL files) or data (e.g. raw spectra) that can be downloaded for a reader's use.
Chemistry Central Journal aims to work closely with operators of open data repositories such as PubChem. Requests for collaboration are welcome, please contact the Editorial Office.
Chemistry Central Journal considers the following types of articles:
- Research: primary research from any area of chemistry, or chemistry related/interdisciplinary area.
- Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction.
- Database articles: describe a new database or a substantial improvement of an existing database (for example by an expansion of data to broaden the range of users, or by a major increase in functionality).
- Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method. The article must describe a demonstrable advance on what is currently available. The method needs to have been well tested and ideally, but not necessarily, used in a way that proves its value.
- Software articles: describe the source code for software applications, tools or algorithm implementations. Typically, an archive of the source code of the current version of the software should be included with the submitted manuscript as a supplementary file.
- Commentary articles: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject within the journal's scope. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders invited by the Editorial Board. Editorial Board members and Section Editors may write such articles to highlight hot or emerging areas of research within a given field.
