ACS began the publication of chemical research with the Journal of the American Chemical Society in 1879. Today, ACS publishes 50 peer-reviewed journals with cutting-edge articles across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. The breadth and scope of ACS Publications journals is unparalleled, stretching across chemistry, physics, and biology. Every year over 100,000 authors and their research teams from the community of scientists worldwide submit their work for consideration in these journals. Noted for their high quality, rapid time to publication, seminal, and high impact, and prevalent citation in future research, ACS journals are available at more than 5,000 academic, business, and corporate institutions worldwide. In addition, over 158,000 ACS members have access to articles from ACS journals as a benefit of membership. ACS editors are all independent active scientific researchers, highly published in their respective fields of inquiry.
As one of the first publishers to post online editions of its journal content, starting with The Journal of Physical Chemistry in 1996, ACS has always been on the cutting edge in the publication of peer-reviewed research. The first ASAP articles were posted in 1998, and the first manuscript submissions were accepted online in 1999. And as the publishing industry and the dissemination of research changes, so too does ACS Publications. Learn more about ACS Publications' range of exciting programs to support open access.
