ACS Chemical Health & Safety

ISSN: 1871-5532eISSN: 1878-0504

While safety permeates all ACS journals, it benefits from its preeminence in ACS Chemical Health & Safety where its authors influence chemical safety and guide tomorrow’s science. Chemical safety research can be transformational and innovative, and it can also focus on practice and be narrowly scoped. This includes foundational datasets or variations on well-studied themes because they hold value to those working with hazardous materials. ACS Chemical Health & Safety provides the opportunity to publish across all these areas. As a discipline, chemical health and safety does not limit itself to laboratories and chemical facilities, and our authors are more than just chemists and chemical engineers; they are scientists with broad research backgrounds and members of the public from many disciplines, including environmental safety and health professionals, industrial hygienists, public health professionals, safety policy makers, human factors specialists, and more. 

Refer to Author Guidelines for detailed topic lists. Sample topics that span the journal's scope include:

  • Fundamental chemical safety research and datasets
  • Chemical health safety and security warnings
  • Chemical risk assessment and management for all settings (e.g., laboratory, industrial, educational, public spaces, etc.)
  • Other topics that influence chemical safety and guide tomorrow’s science (e.g., occupational safety, regulatory, emergency response, training/education, etc.)

Manuscripts relating to commercial products are welcome, provided that they are not advertisements. 

Topics that address new medical approaches (e.g., those utilizing nano materials to deliver targeted drug therapies) and environmental contaminates will be considered but are not regularly accepted for peer review because we believe the topics could be better served by the journals that specialize in those fields.

All manuscripts are subject to critical, anonymous peer review. The final decision relating to a manuscript’s suitability for the journal rests solely with the Editor.

ISSN: 0276-7333eISSN: 1520-6041

Organometallics is the flagship journal of organometallic chemistry and records progress in one of the most active fields of science, bridging organic and inorganic chemistry. For the purposes of this journal, an "organometallic" compound is defined as one in which there is a bonding interaction between one or more carbon atoms of an organic group or molecule and a main-group, transition, lanthanide, or actinide metal atom (or atoms). Following longstanding tradition, organic derivatives of the metalloids (such as boron, silicon, and the like) are included in this definition. Furthermore, manuscripts dealing with metal-containing compounds that do not have metal–carbon bonds will be considered if there is a close relationship between the subject matter and the principles and practice of organometallic chemistry. The journal publishes fundamental studies and work that pushes toward translational research on the synthesis, structure, bonding, chemical reactivity, and reaction mechanisms for a variety of applications:

  • Catalyst design and catalytic processes
  • Main-group, transition-metal, and lanthanide and actinide metal chemistry
  • Synthetic aspects of polymer science and materials science
  • Bioorganometallic chemistry.

The Journal of Organic Chemistry

ISSN: 0022-3263eISSN: 1520-6904

The Journal of Organic Chemistry welcomes original contributions of fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of organic chemistry. In selecting manuscripts for publication, the editors place emphasis on the quality and novelty of the work, as well as the breadth of interest to the organic chemistry community. Manuscripts with a focus on the following topics along with guidance are included below. The scope of organic chemistry is broader than these several areas of research and the Editorial Board is consistently welcoming and evaluating manuscripts addressing topics in addition to these. Guidelines for specific focus areas are as follows:

  • Single or multistep synthetic methods and total synthesis protocols that demonstrate strategies, transformations, or shortened routes to target structures with conceptual novelty
  • Mechanistic studies (experimental or theoretical) that show methodological advances or provide novel insight into the course of chemical reactions.
  • Natural products isolation and identification studies that report unusual skeletal features, improvements in methods for structural determination, or insights into biosynthetic pathways.
  • Manuscripts with elements of biological study, analytical chemistry, functional molecules and systems, or materials science should demonstrate novelty in those aspects associated with the organic chemistry portion of the work being reported.

The Journal of Physical Chemistry A: Molecules, Clusters, and Aerosols; New Tools and Methods in Experiment and Theory

The Journal of Physical Chemistry A (JPC A) publishes experimental, theoretical, and computational research on the physical chemistry of molecules, ions, radicals, clusters, and aerosols. JPC A emphasizes applications in the areas of atmospheric and environmental chemistry, aerosol processes, molecular geochemistry, combustion, astrochemistry, plasmas, cold molecules, catalysis, and energetic materials, among others. JPC A also publishes manuscripts that describe new tools or methods that are of broad interest to the physical chemistry community. 

An essential criterion for acceptance of research articles in the Journal is that they provide new physical insight. Please refer to this Collection on what constitutes new physical insight. Manuscripts that are essentially reporting data or applications of data are, in general, not suitable for publication in JPC A. However, section A4 includes articles on New Tools and Methods in Experiment and Theory where the requirement for new physical insights is relaxed.


  • A1 Structure, Spectroscopy, and Reactivity of Molecules and Clusters
  • A2 Aerosols; Environmental and Atmospheric Chemistry; Astrochemistry
  • A3 Combustion and Plasma Chemistry
