Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is pleased to announce its latest Impact Factor is 3.906*
PCCP is dedicated to publishing cutting-edge original research in the fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. Last year we published 3364 articles, making PCCP the largest single journal in the physical chemistry field. Our wide reach in the community and rapid times to publication ensure your research gets the attention it deserves.
PCCP is proud to be a society journal and is co-owned by 19 national chemical societies. The journal is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry on a not-for-profit basis for the benefit of the whole scientific community.
Led by our Editorial Board Chair (Seong Keun Kim, Seoul National University) and Deputy Chair (David Rueda, Imperial College London), our expert team of international Associate Editors and dedicated professional Editors ensure that PCCP is a home for urgent Communications & high quality Full Papers, authoritative Perspectives and community-led themed collections.
We would like to thank all our authors, readers, reviewers and Editorial & Advisory Board members for their continued support

From 1st August 2018 PCCP COMs should be submitted on template, within 4 pages – to publish urgent findings faster than ever
PCCP Communications are urgent reports of highly original and significant work likely to have a high impact on the community and of such importance that rapid publication is justified.
We are making some changes to the format of PCCP Communications to ensure they are succinctly communicating the most urgent research.
From 1st August 2018, all Communications articles submitted to PCCP must:
- Not exceed 4 printed journal pages
- Be submitted on a Communications template
- Include 4 or fewer figures including tables
- Be submitted with a short statement justifying why the work merits urgent publication as a Communication
PCCP Communications are:
- given priority treatment
- fast-tracked through the publication process
- appear prominently at the front of the journal in a dedicated Communications section ensuring rapid exposure
Submit your most urgent work as a Communication here now!

The 9th International Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Chemistry (IMAMPC) will be taking place in Berlin, Germany between 5-8 June 2018.
This interdisciplinary meeting was conceived to encourage the assistance and active participation of young theoreticians and experimentalists in the field of atomic and molecular physics. Keeping with this tradition, the 9th edition of the IMAMPC will promote innovative research by young scientists, in order to highlight their important contributions to the field.
The meeting will be divided in 11 topical sessions, each opened by a renowned speaker. As element of novelty, a general animated discussion will be held at the end of each session to summarize the findings. We strongly encourage early-career independent researchers, postdocs, and students to submit abstracts, among which we will select 23 high-quality contributions for oral presentation. A non-exhaustive list of topics covered by the conference is
- Macromolecules and biologically-relevant systems
- Reactive collision, scattering, ultracold chemistry
- Spectroscopy and electronic structure theory
- Electron dynamics
Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is pleased to support the event.

The 2nd European Symposium on Chemical Bonding will be taking place in Oviedo, Spain from 3-7 September 2018. Following the spirit of the ESCB1, the conference will be devoted to showing new developments as well as relevant applications in the field of chemical bonding. Besides a set of invited lectures by leaders in the field, ESCB2 expects gather a number of younger researchers, for whom there will be shorter oral communications.
In keeping with the tradition of ESCB1, a practical school on methods, applications and computational tecniques, this time focused on quantum chemical topology tools in chemical bonding will take place before the beginning of the meeting, from September 2 to September 3.
Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) and Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry are delighted to be supporting the event.
