Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC) - the society journal for rapid publication and global visibility of (bio-)analytical research!

ABC is the only general analytical chemistry journal supported by a large group of learned societies around the world. Its 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 journal provides Critical Reviews, current Trends and Communications in addition to Research Papers. Special features are the Analytical Challenge, educational articles and topical paper collections.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • ABC Highlights and Papers in Forefront

    ABC Highlights are invited by the ABC Editors, authored by rising stars and top experts in the field. Papers in Forefront are exceptional papers that the Editors selected guided by peer review.


    You can freely access and read these most recent articles for a period of 8 weeks.

  • Analytical Challenges

    The Analytical Challenge series invites us to pause and think about some analytical problem using the old fashioned paper and pencil method. This column is not here to teach analytical chemistry but to offer glimpses of fundamental problems worth pondering over.
