2014 Impact Factors of ChemPubSoc Europe Journals

Author: ChemViews

ChemPubSoc Europe Journals

Excellent results for the journals published by the ChemPubSoc Europe societies and their sister journals published by the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society). Especially ChemSusChem saw a continuing strong rise.


Angewandte Chemie International Edition 11.261     

The Impact of Angewandte Chemie is on the rise: In 2014 more articles than ever were published (2405), many more total cites were recorded (242023), and a rising 5-year impact factor (12.06) demonstrates the leading role of the journal. Between 2009 and 2014 the number of all articles published rose by 46 % while the other “big” journal, Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), saw a decline in published articles from 3332 in 2009 to 2651 in 2014 (–20 %). The total cites for both journals rose over that period by 47 % for Angewandte Chemie and 39 % for JACS.
Peter Gölitz, the Editor comments: “In the end it is, however, the individual readers of individual articles who have to decide about the impact a paper has for their research – impact factors don’t help.”

Angewandte Chemie is owned by the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker and a sister journal to all the ChemPubSoc Europe journals below.

ChemSusChem 7.657    

The impact factor of ChemSusChem increased to 7.657; the highest value since the journal started publication in 2008. The journal’s five-year impact factor is 8.653, also the highest value received to date. The immediacy index is 1.395. These increases are an indicator of ChemSusChem‘s relevance to energy and sustainability research; areas with strong societal impact.

Chemistry – A European Journal 5.731     

The impact factor of Chemistry – A European Journal remained above 5 for the ninth consecutive year, rising to 5.731 and its five-year impact factor of 5.635 is its highest ever value.

ChemCatChem 4.556    

The 2014 impact factor for ChemCatChem is 4.556. Taking into account an increase in the number of articles published, a stable 5-year impact factor of 5.213, and an immediacy index of 1.029 the journal continues to be well-placed within the catalysis community.

ChemPhysChem 3.419    

ChemPhysChem’s impact factor has increased slightly to 3.419 for 2014 (in comparison to 3.360 in 2013). With very strong indirect competition from materials science journals, as well as journals on sustainability, and with journals on electrochemistry and energy materials poised to make inroads as well, this is an excellent performance.

ChemistryOpen 3.250     

ChemistryOpen has received its first full Impact Factor: 3.250! It is a high-quality, society-owned general chemistry journal covering all areas of chemistry and related disciplines.

ChemBioChem 3.088     

With a slight increase in the impact factor for 2014 (3.088), ChemBioChem is maintaining its place as an excellent resource for Chemical Biologists. A strong increase in the Immediacy Index (to 0.809) also indicates that ChemBioChem is at the cutting edge of its field, bringing exciting new research to its readership. This will only increase with the recent launch of Accepted Articles on ChemBioChem, making new content available to the community within days of acceptance.

European Journal of Organic Chemistry 3.065   

With an impact factor of 3.065, EurJOC continues to deliver high-quality organic chemistry at high speed.

ChemPlusChem 3.026     

The journal ChemPlusChem, which publishes multidisciplinary articles centering on chemistry and related disciplines, receives its first 2-year Impact Factor of 3.026 and posts an increased immediacy index of 0.762.

This young journal is set for success. With increased visibility through social media and ChemistryViews, the high-quality multidisciplinary research published in ChemPlusChem reaches a growing and appreciative audience.

ChemMedChem 2.968     

ChemMedChem remains among the top primary research journals in medicinal chemistry.

European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry 2.942   

With a 2014 Impact Factor of 2.942, EurJIC has risen in the ranks to position 8 in the subject category “Inorganic and Nuclear Chemistry”. EurJIC continues to be a leading inorganic chemistry journal with high-quality publications.


Launched in 2014; will receive its first impact factor in 2016
