OBC Call for Papers – Macrocycles with bio-related applications

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry is delighted to announce a call for papers for a themed issue on:

Macrocycles with bio-related applications

Guest Editors: Spiros Liras (Pfizer, USA), Andrei Yudin and Conor Scully (University of Toronto, Canada)

Deadline for Submission: 15 January 2017

OBC offers fast decisions and publication (average time from receipt to first decision for peer reviewed articles is 12 days for communications and 19 days for papers). Colour publication is free and all articles are indexed in MEDLINE. You can choose for your article to be handled by the Cambridge office or one of our Associate Editors: Christian Hackenberger, Lei Liu, Margaret Brimble or Jin-Quan Yu.


The special issue will serve as a forum to disseminate the latest findings in the burgeoning field of macrocycles. This will include studies aimed at new ways of constructing macrocycles, efforts to understand their biological activity, and new approaches to deciphering conformational profiles using state of the art spectroscopic methods. The issue is aimed at a broad audience comprising synthetic, medicinal, and biological chemists

Research in OBC is published as communications (for urgent work – up to 5 pages in length) or full papers. There is also the opportunity to write a Perspective or Review article for the issue, and if you would be interested in this please let us know beforehand. All submissions will be subject to rigorous peer review to meet the usual high standards of OBC. Guidelines are available at rsc.li/1K0EgYx and rsc.li/1OoQWQh.

If you are interested in taking part in this issue, please email OBC: obc-rsc@rsc.org

Manuscripts can be submitted using the Royal Society of Chemistry’s online article submission service. Please clearly state that the manuscript is submitted for the themed issue on Macrocycles with bio-related applications.
