The Journal of Chemical Research is a peer reviewed, monthly journal, which has a broad international authorship and publishes research papers and reviews in all branches of experimental chemistry.

The APC for this journal is 2000 USD (plus tax where applicable).

The APC is payable when a manuscript is accepted after peer review, before it is published. The APC is subject to taxes where applicable. Please see further details here.

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.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

From 1st January 2021, Journal of Chemical Research will become a fully open access journal. To facilitate this transition, all articles first submitted on or after 1st August 2020 will be subject to an open access article processing charge, and will be published under a Creative Commons license. The APC for this journal is 2000 USD (plus tax where applicable). The APC will be payable on acceptance if the article is accepted after peer review.

The Journal of Chemical Research is a peer reviewed journal that publishes full-length review and research papers in all branches of experimental chemistry. The journal fills a niche by also 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. Though welcome, short papers 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
  • Crystallography
  • Computational Chemistry
