Chemistry Central

URL:www.chemistrycentral.com
  • Free, peer-reviewed articles
  • None
A site that declares “Open access is a sustainable model for the publication of chemical research,” Chemistry Central is bound to make some waves, and friends too. At this online, peer reviewed journal, all research articles are available for free access and can be reused and redistributed, as desired. The authors also retain copyright. Wow! It doesn’t get much better than this. Articles at the site can be accessed by browsing or via a search engine. An online blog on the opening page follows relevant news items, available by hyperlink. Visitors to the site can upload articles for consideration and can even download a poster to help promote the journal. One of the best publications of its kind that I have seen, Chemistry Central is leading the way for open access to scientific information. I’m sure chemists and anyone interested in scientific publishing will love it.
