Computational and Theoretical Chemistry Highlights

The Wiley computational and theoretical chemistry portfolio grows stronger as the go-to forum for reporting breakthroughs in the development and application of computational and modeling methods in chemistry, physics, biology, and materials science.

The flagship Journal of Computational Chemistry (2015 impact factor: 3.648) and the high impact review journal WIREs Computational Molecular Science (2015 impact factor: 10.234) confirm their roles among the top journals in the field, publishing highlights from all aspects of theoretical and computational chemistry: analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, physical, and materials.

With an impact factor of 2.184 (53 % increase from last year), the relaunched International Journal of Quantum Chemistry highlights the breadth of today’s quantum chemistry. IJQC reports research of urgency, significance, and broad interest to the theoretical and computational chemistry communities.
