Walter Leitner, Chair of the Green Chemistry Editorial Board said of the news: “Once again, the impact factor for Green Chemistry has seen a significant increase, reaching an all-time high of 6.8. This is due to the excellent research of the community and the dedication of the authors to share their exciting results, the enormous efforts by the referees to ensure the highest quality, the distinguished profile of the journal and the tremendous and exceptionally professional job of the management office! Taking the impact factor as tool (not the goal) for a journal to measure the reception of its content by the community, I think we can all be proud of this development.”
We would like to thank all our authors, referees, readers and Editorial and Advisory Board members for their help and support on the Journal.
