PeerJ Chemistry journals are Open Access, peer-reviewed, scholarly journals.
They consider articles in the Chemical Sciences (Physical, Organic, Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, as well as Materials Science).
PeerJ Chemistry journals do not publish in Mathematical Sciences, Social Sciences, or Humanities
(except where articles in those areas have clear applicability to the core areas of
Chemistry and Materials Science).
PeerJ Chemistry journals consider Research Articles, Literature Review Articles, Method Development Articles and Registered Reports. They do not accept Hypothesis Papers, Commentaries, Opinion Pieces, Case Studies, Case Reports, etc. Method Development Articles should demonstrate the reliability and validity of the method, and clearly state the contribution to the field.
PeerJ Chemistry journals evaluate articles
based on an objective determination of scientific and methodological soundness, not on subjective determinations of 'impact,' 'novelty' or 'interest'.
PeerJ Chemistry journals
apply the highest standards to everything they do - specifically, the publications place
an emphasis on research integrity; high ethical standards; constructive peer-review; exemplary production quality; and leading-edge online functionality.
Submissions should be directed to an audience of Chemists/Materials Scientists. Articles that are primarily concerned with biology or medicine and do not have a clearly articulated applicability to the broader field of chemistry or materials science, or which assess compounds or materials in vivo
should be submitted to PeerJ - the journal of Life and Environmental Sciences
PeerJ Chemistry journals do not accept pre-submission inquiries.
PeerJ Chemistry journals reserve the right to decline to consider, or publish, any submissions for any reason. This can include those studies that do not have a grounding in established scientific knowledge, or that conflict with PeerJ's core values.
