Call for Papers: Emerging Investigators series

Profiling the very best research from scientists in the early stages of their independent careers

We are delighted to announce the start of an Emerging Investigators series in RSC Advances!  This series will showcase some of the best research from scientists in the early stages of their independent careers. The series will be Guest Edited by Professor James Batteas (Texas A&M University), and articles in the series will be accepted and published throughout the year. In addition, an Editorial article featuring recent researchers in the issue will be published annually.


Papers should provide an insight that advances the chemistry field. Papers that contain little or no chemistry and are not considered to be of interest or relevance to the chemistry community are not within the scope of the journal. The criteria for publication are that the work must be high quality, well conducted and advance the development of the field. Articles submitted to the journal are evaluated by our international team of associate editors and reviewers for the overall quality and accuracy of the science presented.

To be eligible researchers should be roughly within 7 years of starting their first independent research position. Career breaks will be taken into consideration (for example, parental or medical leave).

How to submit

Both Papers and Review articles will be considered for this issue. All submissions will be subject to an initial assessment by Associate Editors and, if suitable for the journal, they will be subject to rigorous peer review to meet the usual high standards of RSC Advances.

Our APC is among the lowest in the industry; £750 for articles as well as reviews (corresponding to approximately $985 or €830 or CNY 6800) and there are no submission charges. Discounts and waivers are offered to authors from developing countries.

If you would like to submit to this issue please notify the Editorial Office at The manuscript should be prepared according to our article guidelines and submitted via our online system anytime.
