Scientific publishing has reached the point where unrestricted access to publications has become crucial for the development of the academic community. As a response to this expectation, the Central European Journal of Chemistry (CEJC) has now become an Open Access journal - Open Chemistry. Please note that coverage in the Abstracting/Indexing services will remain unchanged.

Our journal is the premier source for cutting edge research in fundamental chemistry and it provides high quality peer review services for its authors across the world. Moreover, it allows for libraries everywhere to avoid subscribing to multiple local publications, and to receive instead all the necessary chemistry research from a single source available to the entire scientific community.
