About ChemPlusChem

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 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,  succeeded the Collection of Czechoslovak Chemical Communications.

ChemPlusChem is published on behalf of ChemPubSoc Europe – a unique organization of 16 European chemical societies serving 72,000 members.

presents multidisciplinary research in a variety of formats:

    • Minireviews
    • Reviews
    • Full papers
    • Communications


    • … will be published online
    • … accepts color graphics free of charge
    • … will be promoted together with its sister journal Chemistry – A European Journal
    • … has an editorial team with a wealth of experience gained at Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry – A European Journal

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:

    • general chemistry
    • biotechnology
    • organic chemistry
    • inorganic chemistry
    • physical chemistry
    • macromolecular chemistry
    • analytical chemistry
    • biological chemistry
    • organometallic chemistry
    • polymer chemistry
    • computational chemistry
    • environmental chemistry
    • supramolecular chemistry
    • materials chemistry
    • nanochemistry
    • medicinal chemistry
    • electrochemistry
