About our journals
The Royal Society of Chemistry publishes 4 peer-reviewed journals that cover the core chemical sciences including related fields such as biology, biophysics, energy and environment, engineering, materials, medicine and physics.
We provide authors with the option to make their article gold open access in any of our journals. We have five full gold open access journals, Chemical Science, Materials Advances, Nanoscale Advances, RSC Advances and RSC Chemical Biology, and all our other journals are hybrid - where authors can choose to publish gold open access or publish through the traditional route. We also offer a green open access option after an embargo period.
