Open Chemistry

Publication costs are covered by so called Article Processing Charges (APC), paid by authors' affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors. Starting from 2020 the APC’s will be 1200 euro. Find our more here.

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.

Authors publishing in Open Chemistry benefit from:

  • 2018 Impact Factor - 1.512
  • transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review
  • efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter's e-technology
  • secure archiving by De Gruyter and the independent archiving service Portico
  • no submission charges
  • worldwide distribution and promotion of articles
  • comprehensive abstracting & indexing e.g. SCOPUS and Web of Science
  • unrestricted access for all readers
  • immediate publication upon completing the publishing process
  • Authors retain the copyrights
  • Increased and accelerated citations
