Special Offer

To celebrate ChemistryOpen's first Impact Factor of 2.938 (Thomson Reuters 2013 Journal Citation Report), we are currently running a special offer for our authors: Articles will be published free of charge until June 2015.

All manuscripts submitted to the Editorial Office are evaluated by the editors and stringently peer reviewed by experts in the field. For manuscripts accepted for publication before June 2015, the standard article publication charge (APC) will be waived and all publication costs covered by the Editorial Office, which includes those associated with color production. This offer applies to Reviews, Full Papers, Communications, and Thesis Summaries only. Authors of other contribution types (i.e., Cover Profiles) are still required to meet the associated APC of €500.

Articles published in ChemistryOpen are fully open access and are published under a Creative Commons license in accordance with the standard policies of the journal.

The Editorial Office reserves the right to rescind this offer at any stage.

Institutional and Funder Accounts and Discounts

To enable academic and research institutions, funders, and corporations to financially support their investigators publishing open access articles with Wiley, a central payment option is available:

Wiley Open Access Accounts enable institutions and funders to pay centrally for open access articles published by their authorized authors. Upon publication, the full open access publication fee for the journal in question, minus any account discount, will be deducted from the account.

Authors affiliated with an organization which has a Wiley Open Access Account can publish research articles in ChemistryOpen without directly paying any publication charges.
