ChemComm – top 3 most cited journal in general chemistry

We’re hot, we’re fast, and we’re the third most cited

Researchers around the world cited ChemComm articles 175,661 times last year, making us the third most cited general chemistry journal, according to the latest citation data released by Thomson Reuters in its 2015 Journal Citation Reports®.

With our Impact Factor riding high at 6.567 and our Immediacy Index at its highest-ever at 1.713, not only are your findings published rapidly in ChemComm, they’re also read and cited quickly by more and more researchers across all chemical science disciplines around the world – proof that we continue to publish urgent, high quality work on the very hottest topics.

A massive thank you to everyone – our authors, referees, readers, Associate Editors, and Editorial and Advisory Board members – for contributing to the journal’s continued success.

With more than 175,000 cites under our belt, we can’t help but think this an apt and fitting way of celebrating our 175 years in the service of the chemical science community as the oldest chemical society in the world.

Submit your next urgent Communication to ChemComm, and quickly see the impact of your work across the breadth of the chemical sciences.

*The Impact Factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, Impact Factors are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years. The journal Immediacy Index indicates how quickly articles in a journal are cited, and is calculated by dividing the number of citations to articles published in a given year by the number of articles published in that year. Data based on 2015 Journal Citation Reports®, (Thomson Reuters, 2016).
