Research Categories


Chemical Society Reviews publishes tutorial and critical reviews. The promotion of international and multidisciplinary awareness and co-operation is particularly encouraged. Articles of "social interest" (eg drugs in sport) are also published, giving an overview of topical areas. Tutorial reviews are written to be of relevance both to the general research chemist who is new to the field, as well as the expert, and are accessible to advanced undergraduates and beyond. They provide an essential introduction to the field and serve as a springboard to further reading. Authors are required to keep length and references to a minimum in order to give an enticing flavour of the topic rather than a comprehensive treatise.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Chemical Society Reviews

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
