It is with a great deal of sadness to inform you of the death of one of our associate editors Professor Hidetoshi Yamada. We deeply thank for his support, work, and contribution to the journal.
Since 1st January 2019 Heterocyclic Communications has changed the publishing model to Open Access.
Until June 2020 all articles accepted for publication in Heterocyclic Communications are subject to a discounted Article Processing Charge of €1000 instead of €1500.
Significant developments in heterocyclic chemistry
Synthetic routes to heterocyclic compounds with high biological activity
Imperative topics including theoretical analysis
Easy traceability through detailed experimental descriptions
Long-time preservation of the content (archiving) with Portico
Objective Heterocyclic Communications (HC) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal publishing preliminary communications, research articles, and reviews on significant developments in all phases of heterocyclic chemistry, including general synthesis, natural products, computational analysis, considerable biological activity and inorganic ring systems. Clear presentation of experimental and computational data is strongly emphasized. Heterocyclic chemistry is a rapidly growing field. By some estimates original research papers in heterocyclic chemistry have increased to more than 60% of the current organic chemistry literature published. This explosive growth is even greater when considering heterocyclic research published in materials science, physical, biophysical, analytical, bioorganic, pharmaceutical, medicinal and natural products journals. There is a need, therefore, for a journal dedicated explicitly to heterocyclic chemistry and the properties of heterocyclic compounds.
Development of novel synthetic methods
Significant improvement of known synthetic methods
Chemistry of natural products
Superior biological activity of novel heterocyclic compounds, rational design and synthesis of new drug candidates targeting specific biological receptors
Application of heterocyclic compounds as probes for biomolecules in biophysical and bioanalytical chemistry
Development of new substrates and catalysts in materials chemistry
Article formats Preliminary Communications, Original Research Articles, Review Articles
