Scope Chemical Science is a multi-disciplinary journal publishing findings from across the breadth of the chemical sciences. Articles should present new findings of exceptional significance to their field, and also be of wider interest to readers working in other areas across the chemical sciences. For work to be published, it should provide a significant, conceptually novel advance or insight into the development of its field, and be written to be accessible to scientists across the broad readership of the journal. More specialised work is generally not suitable for publication in the journal.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
