The Journal of Chemical Research is a monthly journal which has a broad international authorship and publishes research papers and reviews in all branches of experimental chemistry.
Established in 1977 as a joint venture by the British, French and German chemical societies it maintains the high standards set by the founding societies. Each paper is independently peer reviewed and only carefully evaluated contributions are accepted.
Recent papers have described new synthetic methods, new heterocyclic compounds, new natural products, and the inorganic chemistry of metal complexes.
The Journal of Chemical Research publishes reviews and research papers in all branches of experimental chemistry. The journal fills a niche in publishing short papers, a format which favours particular types of work, e.g. the scope of new reagents or methodology, and the elucidation of the structure of novel compounds.
Papers that are short are welcome, but should not result in fragmentation of publication; they should describe a completed piece of work. The Journal is not intended as a vehicle for preliminary publications. The work must meet all the normal criteria for acceptance as regards scientific standards. Papers that contain extensive biological results or material relating to other areas of science may be diverted to more appropriate specialist journals.
Areas of coverage include:
- Organic Chemistry
- Inorganic Chemistry
- Materials Chemistry
- Computational Chemistry
