    Open Chemistry is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research, reviews and short communications in the fields of chemistry in an ongoing way. Our central goal is to provide a hub for researchers working across all subjects to present their discoveries, and to be a forum for the discussion of the important issues in the field.

    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.
