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 cross-disciplinary approach that builds on great past discoveries. Elsevier is 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.
