Aims and scope

Reviews and Advances in Chemistry (RJC) provides an international forum for publishing cutting-edge, rigorous, high-impact research across all of chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. This broad scope encompasses studies on the all aspects of contemporary chemical sciences and engineering, including, but limited to both basic and applied topical aspects of organic, inorganic, organoelement, physical, solid state, supramolecular, polymer, colloidal, nanoscience, soft matter, biological, medicinal, pharmaceutical, analytical, theoretical, cheminformatics, computational and mathematical chemistry, radio-, photo-, electro- and mechanochemistry, as well chemical engineering, materials processing, food science, environmental issues, and safety. Interdisciplinary articles and papers in all chemistry-related areas are also welcome. In addition to comprehensive, focused and unsolicited critical reviews, RJC also publishes ordinary research articles, short communications, and letters to the editor, which report new methods of particular interest to the chemistry community.

The Editorial Board of RJC includes the world's leading experts in the main fields of chemistry. We see the main priority in the development of RJC to become a major contributor to the science publication ecosystem that serves scientists from around the globe. RJC is distributed worldwide and indexed in many citation databases. The editorial board together with the publishing house will use state-of-the-art technologies and approaches to article processing, from the submission of the manuscript to its publication. We implement rigorous and fair review of submitted articles, that follows the best scientific and ethical standards, and is conflict-of-interest free. RJC currently uses a single blind review and will implement a double-blind peer review option in the near future. RJC is published in English only, but we will review all submitted articles written in Russian and, if accepted, provide the translations. We offer a hybrid open access and will work to attain full compliance with PlanS in the nearest future. We welcome pre-submission of papers into archives.

RJC is committed to diversity, and equality, and strives to overcome barriers not only between scientific disciplines, but also between “young” and “established” investigators, “high” and “low” income counties, “East” and “West” mindsets, and other barriers that hinder science. RJC is guided by the quality of science only and aims in the near future to take a leading position among the world chemical journals.
