Chemical Science Impact Factor rises to 8.3

Chemical Science is dedicated to publishing research of exceptional significance from across the chemical sciences.  For us, it’s all about giving our authors the visibility and recognition their research deserves.

So we are delighted to announce that our 2012 Impact Factor* has risen to an impressive 8.314. This fantastic result further demonstrates that Chemical Science is one of the leading general chemistry journals.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the journal’s success so far – our authors, referees, readers and Editorial and Advisory Boards – we are very grateful for your support.

Our unique combination of high quality articles, flexible format and excellent Associate Editors, makes it clear why so many leading scientists have already chosen to publish in Chemical Science.  You can see our most highly cited articles listed below.

We invite you to submit your exceptional research to Chemical Science today.

Publishing your research in Chemical Science means your article will have excellent visibility and will be read and cited by your colleagues.  See the citation profile of Chemical Science articles compared to other leading general chemistry journals.

*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.  Data based on 2012 Journal Citation Reports®, (Thomson Reuters, 2013).
