Create the New – the future of chemistry research

How chemists collaborate with other scientists and engineers to solve societal challenges is changing as advances in chemistry fuel innovative research. Simultaneously, technology trends are radically changing the way that existing and newly generated information is stored, discovered and applied.

In this new research paradigm, chemists require solutions and journals that recognize the importance of a crossdisciplinary approach that builds on great past discoveries. Elsevier’s Chemical Sciences Journals and the research solution Reaxys are dedicated to delivering the highest-quality chemistry in a manner that includes the perspectives of all scientists. We seek to empower innovation and secure a bright future for chemistry research.

New Chemistry Journals

The field of chemistry is continuously developing and expanding, and as such we have recently launched several exciting new journals:

Journal Metrics

We are pleased to present the 2016 metrics for our Chemistry journals. Elsevier continues to support the academic community's need for more choice, accuracy and insight in journal performance.

In addition to the Impact Factor*, we include three additional metrics that reflect our journals' impact: their Cite Score, SNIP and SJR values.

Each year, the quality of papers published in our Chemistry journals is secured by the contribution of all our outstanding authors, reviewers and editors.

Last year, articles published in Elsevier’s Analytical Chemistry journals were collectively cited a total of 403,350 times, with Trends in Analytical Chemistry reaching an Impact Factor of 8.442 andCiteScore of 8.090 increasing its rank to 1st position in the subject category.

Journal of Colloid and Interface Sciences continues to grow in Impact Factor increasing by 11.9% to 4.233.

Elsevier now publishes 8 out of the top 10 Electrochemistry journals, including the #1 journal Biosensors and Bioelectronics!

Elsevier publishes 3 out of top 5 journals in the field of Inorganic Chemistry, namely Coordination Chemistry Reviews, Advances in Organometallic Chemistry, and Progress in Solid State Chemistry.

Last year, articles published in Elsevier’s Organic Chemistry journals were collectively cited a total of 283,663 times.

Surface Science Reports' Impact Factor increased by 124.1% from 5.950 to 13.333. The journal has also seen an impressive increase in ranking and is now at the 6th place in the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry category, up 20 points from last year.
