Chemical Science Impact Factor rises to 9.211

We are delighted to announce that Chemical Science’s latest Impact Factor has soared to an impressive 9.211 this year, according to the 2014 Journal Citation Reports®.

C5SC90001HThank you to all our authors, referees, Associate Editors, and Editorial and Advisory Board members for contributing to the journal’s continued impact and success – this achievement would not have been possible without your support and trust. Chemical Science remains 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.

Chemical Science became a gold open access journal in January 2015, giving the global community free access to high quality research while waiving all Article Processing Charges (APCs), keeping articles free to publish, for at least two years.  This unique combination of open access, top quality articles, a flexible format and world-class Associate Editors makes it clear why so many leading scientists choose to publish in Chemical Science.

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

*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 2014 Journal Citation Reports®, (Thomson Reuters, 2015).
