The Division of Biological Chemistry has maintained a close association with Biochemistry since this Journal’s founding in 1961. In addition there are many other Journals that publish work of interest to our members.

ACS Journals

ACS is dedicated to supporting research in the fields of biological chemistry and features an extensive roster of journals offering innovative and landmark research findings at the interface of chemistry, biology and medicine. ACS journals offer extensive author benefits including rapid publication, broad dissemination, no publication charges and more.

ACS Biochemistry

Biochemistry

Biochemistry brings you the latest developments from the rapidly changing arena in which chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular and cell biology meet. Discover original research results that collectively shape our understanding of the mechanisms of biological phenomena. Biochemistry covers structure, function, and regulation of biologically active molecules; gene structure and expression; biochemical mechanisms; protein biosynthesis; protein folding; membrane structure-function relationships; bioenergetics; and immunochemistry.

ACS Biochemistry

ACS Chemical Biology

ACS Chemical Biology (ACS CB) fosters communication between biologists, chemists, and physicists, reaching out to an international scientific community exploring complex cellular processes using chemical, biological, and biophysical techniques. In addition to publishing Reviews and high impact original research in Letters and Articles, the journal features a number of sections (Spotlight, In Focus, and Point of View) designed to enhance readers’ understanding of chemical biology and broader scientific issues.

ACS JOC

Journal of Organic Chemistry

Published bi-weekly in print, and continuously on the Web, the Journal of Organic Chemistry (JOC) welcomes original contributions of fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of organic and bioorganic chemistry. The Journal emphasizes the quality and originality of the work in order to satisfy the breadth of interest of its readers. JOC features full articles as well as invited contributions from the recipients of the annual national ACS awards in the field of organic chemistry. JOC leads the ACS Family of Organic Chemistry Journals as #1 in total citations in the ISI’s Organic Chemistry Category.

ACS Synthetic Biology

ACS Synthetic Biology

ACS Synthetic Biology (ACS SB) is dedicated to research in synthetic biology including the study of systems. The journal will publish high-quality research that demonstrate integrative, molecular approaches enabling us to better understand the organization and function of cells, tissues, and organisms in systems.

J. Proteome Research

Journal of Proteome Research

The Journal of Proteome Research (JPR)publishes content encompassing all aspects of global protein analysis and function, emphasizing the synergy between physical and life sciences resulting in a multidisciplinary approach to the understanding of biological processes.


RSC Publications

Journals from the Royal Society of Chemistry, Britain are recognized as the fastest in the field, some papers having been published within a day of receipt, including full peer review and editing. This is made possible by a dedicated, professional staff, and truly innovative electronic workflow systems. The Royal Society of Chemistry offers the following Journals that are of interest to our members.

Molecular BioSystems

Molecular BioSystems

A new high quality chemical biology journal with a particular focus on the interface between chemistry and the -omic sciences and systems biology. The main research areas covered by Molecular BioSystems include chemical biology, systems biology, proteomics and genomics, cellular processes and metabolism. Launched in 2005, the journal offers a wide range of article types: communications, papers, methods, tutorial reviews, reviews, highlights and opinions.

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry brings together molecular design, synthesis, structure, function and reactivity in one journal. It publishes fundamental work on synthetic, physical and biomolecular organic chemistry as well as all organic aspects of: chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, natural product chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, macromolecular chemistry, theoretical chemistry, and catalysis.

Chemical Communications

Chemical Communications

Chemical Communications is renowned as the fastest publisher of articles providing information on new avenues of research, drawn from all the world’s major areas of chemical research. Now published weekly, ChemComm publishes an impressive array of chemical biology papers.

Molecular BioSystems

Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences

Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences meets the growing information needs of scientists working in the areas of photochemistry and photobiology, and indeed, encourages a synergism between these two important research areas. This international journal is the official publication of the European Photochemistry Association (EPA), the European Society for Photobiology (ESP), the Korean Society of Photoscience and the Asia and Oceania Society for Photobiology.


Other Journals

Bioorganic Chemistry

Bioorganic Chemistry

Bioorganic Chemistry publishes accounts of research that are at the interface of chemistry and biology. The guiding principle followed in accepting manuscripts for publication is that the research either uses the principles and techniques of organic chemistry in attempting to solve some problem relevant to biology or describes chemical studies that are inspired by a biological observation. Manuscripts suitable for submission will deal with topics such as enzymology, enzyme models, biosynthesis, bio-mimetic synthesis, molecular recognition, protein and peptide chemistry, nucleic acid chemistry (including ribozymes and anti-sense strategies), immunology (including catalytic antibodies), biosensors, the design and synthesis of therapeutics, proteomics, and genomics.

Journal of Biological Chemistry

Journal of Biological Chemistry

The Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) is the most-cited biomedical research journal in the world. Building on over 100 years of research, the JBC continues to provide essential research for an international audience and a standard of excellence in the field of biochemistry. In 2010, the journal revamped and extended its table of contents categories to reflect all areas of biology that can be studied on a molecular level from the entire range of modern biological research.

Biopolymers

Biopolymers

A valuable voice in the biopolymer community since 1963, Biopolymers publishes strictly peer-reviewed papers examining both naturally occurring and synthetic biological macromolecules. By including experimental and theoretical studies on the fundamental behaviour as well as applications of biopolymers, the journal serves the interdisciplinary biochemical, biophysical and biomedical research communities.

Peptide Science

Peptide Science

Peptide Science provides an international forum for research results across the entire spectrum of the field. It incorporates both experimental and theoretical studies on all aspects of peptide science, including synthesis, structure and bioactivity, and the use of peptides in exploring protein functions and protein-protein interactions. Peptide Science is the official journal of the American Peptide Society.
