    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.

    Topical Issues:

    1. Topical Issue on Advanced organic functional materials for practical applications
      Guest Editor: Eugenijus Butkus, Vilnius University, Lithuania
    2. Topical Issue on Polymer Science
      Guest Editor: Tanmoy Dutta, Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, California, USA
    3. Topical Issue on Natural Products with Biological Activities
      Guest Editor: Luísa Barreira, Marine Sciences Center (CCMAR) / University of Algarve
    4. Topical Issue on Recycling by-products and waste materials to restore degraded environments, and/or use as biosorbents.
      Guest Editor: Avelino Núnez-Delgado, University of Santiago de Compostela
    5. Topical Issue on Chemical Synthesis of Nanomaterials for Solar Energy conversion, storage and Environmental Applications
