Chemistry Central Journal is evolving to BMC Chemistry

Chemistry Central Journal has served the chemistry community as a trusted open access resource for more than 10 years – and we are delighted to announce the next step on its journey. In January 2019 the journal will be renamed BMC Chemistry and strengthen the BMC series footprint in the physical sciences by publishing quality articles and by pushing the boundaries of open chemistry.

All published articles, and those to be published from 2019, will be hosted on the new website (under construction, will go live in 2019) and will continue to be available on SprinkerLink. For further information please refer to our recent blog and list of FAQs explaining this change in more detail. For additional queries feel free to contact the Editor at
