This year we are proud to celebrate 10 years since the launch of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C as three separate titles.
The vision of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C was to provide venues for highly topical research in a broad range of materials chemistry across three distinguished journal scopes. Since the pilot issues were published at the beginning of 2013, we have continued to publish a diverse range of impactful research across the global materials chemistry community and covering the full breadth of our discipline.
We are delighted to announce a number of initiatives to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C. You can find out more about our activities below:
10th Anniversary Activities
Editors-in-Chief Anders Hagfeldt, Jeroen Cornelissen and Natalie Stingelin introduce the anniversary year with an Editorial: Celebrating ten years of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C.
Celebratory Themed Collections
We have published special 10th anniversary themed collections across each of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C featuring work from members of the community who have supported the journals over the last 10 years. We would like to thank and celebrate our community for their ongoing support and for sharing their latest discoveries with us. Articles included in the anniversary issues feature ’10th Anniversary Statements’ to highlight the author’s relationship to the journal and to hear from our community what they value about the long history of the JMCs!
|Journal of Materials Chemistry A anniversary issue||Journal of Materials Chemistry B anniversary issue||Journal of Materials Chemistry C anniversary issue|
To introduce the anniversary collections, we also heard from past and present Editors-in-Chief and Editorial Board Chairs from throughout the long history of Journal of Materials Chemistry.
” Looking ahead to the future of the journals, we hope that this community continues to grow and develop. The past ten years and beyond have seen major shifts in the research community for the better, with more international collaboration and more interaction between experimentalists and theoreticians, fundamental and applied researchers, along with researchers working together from across different disciplines to advance understanding and solve problems. The journals have also been actively engaged in equality, diversity and inclusion and we are proud to have been involved in addressing balances and valuing input from all members of our community at all stages of their careers.”
We will be publishing a series of blogs featuring interviews with various members of our communities who have supported the journals over recent years. All the latest blog posts can be found on this page.

10th Anniversary Covers
Since the start of 2023, we have encouraged authors to include a 10 in their cover designs to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the journals. These covers have been promoted on Twitter using the hashtag #JMCs10Years. A selection of these 10th anniversary covers is included below and you can find monthly round-ups on our blog.
We are showcasing authors who have published for the first time in Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B or C in 2023. Authors can opt-in to be included if it is their first time publishing with the journal as a corresponding author. Check out the ongoing collections below to meet the next generation of our community and keep an eye on our socials for #MyFirstJMC promotion. We thank these authors for choosing to publish their work with us! Read the collections at #MyFirstJMCA, #MyFirstJMCB and #MyFirstJMCC
The results are in – Journal of Materials Chemistry 10 Year Anniversary Survey
To celebrate 10 years of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C we asked you to contribute your thoughts and perspectives about the development of materials chemistry and the future of the field! Check out the results on this blog post!
We are excited to celebrate our anniversary year and we are grateful to our community for all their support!
