Fellowship and Prizes 2017

Monatshefte für Chemie - Best Paper Awards, started in 2016! 

We are delighted to announce the best paper awards 2018 which will be given for papers accepted for publication in 2017 in Monatshefte für Chemie – Chemical Monthly. The award was established in 2016 and first awarded in 2016 for papers accepted for publication in the year 2015.
Prizes are awarded for the five best original papers by young scientists (main contributor to the paper named by corresponding author under 35) and the best review article (no age limit) and will honor an author´s outstanding scientific contribution published in Monatshefte für Chemie – Chemical Monthly.
Every member of the editorial board may nominate up to three original papers and one review article per year. Selection of the five award winners will be made at the beginning of each year (considering papers from the previous year) by a committee with members from the board of Monatshefte für Chemie - Chemical Monthly, ÖAW, GÖCH and Springer and announced by the end of February 2018. The winners receive € 2500 each.
Check out the below 2017 award winning papers and submit your own article to be nominated as the next awardee!
Our sincere congratulations to all fellowship and award winners!

    Aims and Scope


    "Monatshefte für Chemie/Chemical Monthly" was originally conceived as an Austrian journal of chemistry. It has evolved into an international journal covering all branches of chemistry. Featuring the most recent advances in research in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic, medicinal, organic, physical, structural, and theoretical chemistry, Chemical Monthly publishes refereed original papers and a section entitled "Short Communications". Reviews, symposia in print, and issues devoted to special fields will also be considered.
