Chemical Science continues achieving with its latest Impact factor

Since Chemical Science was launched in 2010, we have been overwhelmed by the support of our global community. And with our latest Impact factor at 9.144, according to citation data released by Thomson Reuters in its 2015 Journal Citation Reports®, we are truly grateful to all of you – our authors, referees, readers, Associate Editors, and Editorial and Advisory Board members – for your enthusiastic support towards the journal’s success.C6SC90001A

In less than six years, Chemical Science has grown and developed into one of the world’s leading chemistry journals, maintaining a strong and sustained impact, even as we saw significant growth in the number of articles published in recent years.

And having gone open access in 2015, it continues to be free to read, as well as free for authors to publish in – all publication charges continue to be waived. Therefore through Chemical Science your high-quality work can be freely read, with absolutely no barriers, by your peers and by researchers around the world.

We want our momentum to keep on building

With increasing submissions, this does mean that now – more than ever – it is essential that we publish only the best of the best, nothing less than the most exceptional science. For us, it’s all about quality and excellence, recognition and visibility, as we aim higher for the rest of 2016 and beyond.

We aim for Chemical Science to be the global home for cutting-edge solutions to today’s most pressing challenges, communicated worldwide, without barriers – will you join us as we move closer to our vision?

Then submit only your top-quality work to Chemical Science, and be a key part of the solution.
