    Aims and Scope


    Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry’s mission is the rapid publication of excellent and high-impact research articles on fundamental and applied topics of analytical and bioanalytical measurement science. Its scope is broad, and ranges from novel measurement platforms and their characterization to multidisciplinary approaches that effectively address important scientific problems.  

    The Editors encourage submissions presenting innovative analytical research in concept, instrumentation, methods, and/or applications, including:

    • mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, and electroanalysis;
    • advanced separations;
    • analytical strategies in “-omics” and imaging, bioanalysis, and sampling;
    • miniaturized devices, medical diagnostics, sensors;
    • analytical characterization of nano- and biomaterials;
    • chemometrics and advanced data analysis.

    Applications should clearly highlight the novelty of the contribution and be presented with fit-for-purpose validation metrics. If applicable, each contribution should be compared to existing methods and/or include analysis of real world samples.

    The journal discourages submissions with limited analytical novelty or lacking a substantial impact on analytical and bioanalytical science. Papers that merely comprise data collections, based on the use of well-established analytical or bioanalytical methodologies, are also not acceptable. All submissions to the journal will be screened for plagiarism.

    The journal publishes Critical Reviews and Trend Articles, Research Papers, and Communications. All papers are subject to a strict peer review. Guided by peer reviews, the Editors select a number of exceptional papers for accelerated publication as ‘Papers in Forefront’. Also published are ABC Spotlights and Feature Articles on selected topics as well as Letters to the Editor as a medium of discussion and exchange of opinions. Additional features are ABC’s general-interest columns geared to the practical needs of modern analytical scientists (e.g. Analytical Challenge, ABCs of Education and Professional Development in Analytical Science).

    Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry is a merger and also continuation of Fresenius' Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Analusis, Química Analítica, and Chemical Analysis/Chemia Analityczna.

    The journal is partly owned by major chemical societies: German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh), Chemical Society of France (Société Chimique de France, SCF), Spanish Society for Analytical Chemistry (Sociedad Española de Química Analítica, SEQA) and Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (Real Sociedad Española de Química, RSEQ), Austrian Society for Analytical Chemistry (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Analytische Chemie, ASAC), Division of Analytical Chemistry of the Swiss Chemical Society (Division Analytische Chemie der Schweizerischen Chemischen Gesellschaft, DAC/SCS), Italian Chemical Society (Società Chimica Italiana, SCI), and Polish Chemical Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Chemiczne, PTChem).

    This close relationship with multiple chemical societies ensures that the journal is exceptionally well-positioned to understand, anticipate and fulfill the needs of scientists in this multidisciplinary field.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.
