The Chemical Record (TCR, ISI Impact Factor 2014: 5.492) is a journal of the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ). It is a "highlights" journal publishing timely and critical overviews of new developments at the cutting edge of both core and interdisciplinary chemistry fields of interest to a wide audience of chemists. The Chemical Record provides carefully selected papers by leading researchers that introduce the author's own experimental and theoretical results in a framework designed to establish perspectives with earlier and contemporary work and provide a critical review of the present state of the subject (Personal Account articles).


The Chemical Record (TCR) Lecture
This prestigious lectureship began in 2002 shortly after the start of the journal The Chemical Record and was established to foster international and interdisciplinary exchange. It features renowned speakers from a wide range of fields in chemistry. The full history of the TCR Lecture series has a diverse international representation and includes such prominent chemists as Yuan T. Lee (Nobelist), Gerhard Ertl (Nobelist), E. W. “Bert” Meijer, Andrew Holmes, and Scott J. Miller.

The Chemical Record additionally features a unique section covering the boundaries of chemical research, so-called world records in chemistry, under the overall title “Records and Challenges”. This section not only defines the achieved limits in chemical research but also is aimed at identifying which challenges researchers are taking on to advance the field to new boundaries.
