Dear Scientist,

ChemMedChem is a leading journal in the field of medicinal chemistry, publishing primary research results in the form of both Full Papers and Communications, as well as key secondary and tertiary contributions such as Reviews, Concepts and Highlights. Articles are published with quality and speed in mind. A decision is typically reached within 19 days of submission, and online publication usually follows receipt of the final version within around 28 days.

To showcase the journal's excellent content, we are giving you free access to ChemMedChem's top 25 most-accessed articles of the last 12 months.

The broad scope of the journal is reflected in the diverse topics covered by the articles: from traditional small molecules and structure–activity relationship studies to peptidomimetics and the application of computational chemistry in drug design. The articles come from a wide range of researchers in all areas of drug discovery and development from around the world—an indication of the journal's global reach and broad scope.

We hope you enjoy browsing the articles and that you will consider submitting your next manuscript to ChemMedChem.
