ChemPlusChem received an impact factor of 2.836 in the 2015 Journal Citation Report from Thomson Reuters.
Collaboration, of course, is a prerequisite to multidisciplinary science. The portion of papers with contributions from two or more research groups has more than doubled within the last ten years. ChemPlusChem is the first journal to specifically provide a high-quality forum for papers arising from these scientific partnerships.
ChemPlusChem is a peer-reviewed journal tailored to multidisciplinary chemistry and materials researchers from across the world. Fully comprehensive in its scope, ChemPlusChem publishes original papers covering at least two different aspects (subfields) of chemistry or one of chemistry and one of another scientific discipline (one chemistry topic plus another one, hence the title ChemPlusChem). The readership of this new journal includes researchers working in all chemical disciplines as well as materials scientists, biologists, and physicists. They will come from academia, the chemical industry, and government institutions. ChemPlusChem, in this new exciting form, will succeed the Collection of Czechoslovak Chemical Communications which will cease publication at the end of 2011. The first articles will be posted online later this year, with the first issue following in early 2012.
ChemPlusChem is published on behalf of ChemPubSoc Europe – a unique organization of 16 European chemical societies serving 72,000 members.
ChemPlusChem presents multidisciplinary research in a variety of formats:
According to Associate Professor Michal Hocek from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Czech Republic and Co-chair of ChemPlusChem, "The chemical community urgently needs a general multidisciplinary journal with a broadly defined scope to accommodate high quality, complex papers covering several subject categories in parallel."
"To be an active part of crossdisciplinary research can be a tremendous 'catalyst' to boost creativity in chemistry and in turn to convince colleagues from other disciplines to interconnect with the beauty and power of chemistry," said Professor Matthias Driess from the Berlin Institute of Technology and Co-chair of ChemPlusChem. "The launch of ChemPlusChem will be of benefit to all crossdisciplinary researchers and will ensure that fruitful scientific collaborations keep heading in the right direction."
Articles in ChemPlusChem cover any combination of these key subfields of chemistry:
