Chemistry Central Journal
Publisher: BioMed Central
Chemistry Central Journal is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal
encompassing all aspects of chemistry.
The journal covers research in all areas of chemistry, including analytical,
biological, environmental, industrial, inorganic, organic, physical and
theoretical chemistry as well as materials science, and is divided into over
fifty subject areas.
Chemistry Central Journal offers scientists the opportunity to publish their
research rapidly in an open access medium that is freely available online to
researchers worldwide. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject
to rigorous peer review. Published material may include electronic
supplementary material, such as animations (e.g., MOL files) or data (e.g.
raw spectra) that can be downloaded for a reader's use.
Chemistry Central Journal aims to work closely with operators of open data
repositories such as PubChem.
Chemistry Central Journal considers the following types of articles:
* Research: primary research from any area of chemistry, or chemistry
* Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe
a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an
important adverse reaction.
* Database articles: describe a new database or a substantial improvement of
an existing database (for example by an expansion of data to broaden the
range of users, or by a major increase in functionality).
* Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or
procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a
better version of an existing method. The article must describe a
demonstrable advance on what is currently available. The method needs to
have been well tested and ideally, but not necessarily, used in a way that
proves its value.
* Software articles: describe the source code for software applications,
tools or algorithm implementations. Typically, an archive of the source code
of the current version of the software should be included with the submitted
manuscript as a supplementary file.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Chemistry Central Journal
using the online submission system.
