Chemical Communications, known as ChemComm, is a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Published weekly by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), it contains communications (short descriptions of new work requiring rapid publication) of significant work from across the chemical sciences. It also includes feature and focus articles. Like all RSC journals, ChemComm is widely recognised for its overall quality and its speed of publication.
The editor of ChemComm is Dr Sarah Thomas and the current chair of the Editorial Board is Prof Roeland J M Nolte, who is head of the Department of Organic Chemistry at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
Chemical biology is an expanding area of the chemical sciences, and chemical biology papers are an important part of the content of ChemComm. ChemComm has been selected by the US National Library of Medicine for inclusion in MEDLINE, thereby increasing its visibility to the biological community. Chemical biology papers published in Chemical Communications are highlighted in Chemical Biology, the RSC’s point of access to chemical biology news and research from across all RSC journals.
ChemComm has an impact factor of 5.14 (2007).
