Journal of Molecular Structure - ISSN 0022-2860
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.918 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.45 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.463 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 2.121 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The Journal of Molecular Structure is dedicated to the publication of full-length articles and review papers, providing important new structural information on all types of chemical species including:

• Stable and unstable molecules in all types of environments (vapour, molecular beam, liquid, solution, liquid crystal, solid state, matrix-isolated, surface-absorbed etc.)
Chemical intermediates
• Molecules in excited states
Biological molecules

The methods used may include any combination of spectroscopic and non-spectroscopic techniques, for example:

• Infrared spectroscopy (mid, far, near)
• Raman spectroscopy and non-linear Raman methods (CARS, etc.)
• Electronic absorption spectroscopy
• Optical rotatory dispersion and circular dichroism
• Fluorescence and phosphorescence techniques
• Electron spectroscopies (PES, XPS), EXAFS, etc.
• Microwave spectroscopy
• Electron diffraction
• NMR and ESR spectroscopies
• Mössbauer spectroscopy
• X-ray crystallography
• Charge Density Analyses
• Computational Studies (supplementing experimental methods)

We encourage publications combining theoretical and experimental approaches. The structural insights gained by the studies should be correlated with the properties, activity and/ or reactivity of the molecule under investigation and the relevance of this molecule and its implications should be discussed.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Papers describing routine studies of little structural significance (e.g. manuscripts dealing only with glassy materials, characterization of particles and materials by using microscopy techniques, those reporting essentially crystal data accompanied by routine spectroscopic studies and/or theoretical structure analysis performed for isolated molecules, and routine spectroscopy studies for commercially available compounds) are not acceptable. The same applies to manuscripts mainly focused on synthesis procedures or evaluation of bioactivity of chemical species. Solely theoretical studies should rather be submitted to Computational and Theoretical Chemistry.
