Open Access Chemical engineering Journals

A list of Open Access Chemical engineering journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Chemical engineering is branch of science that applies physical sciences and life sciences together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy

Open Access journals publish papers that are free to the reader to download. OA papers have undergone peer review and are not more or less stringent than papers in closed journals — the main difference is in the business model.

This list of Chemical engineering OA journals will hopefully make it easier for you to have a better idea regarding where your want to publish your Chemical engineering manuscript.
We have thousands of high-impact factor Chemical engineering journals in our list.We've made this extensive list of open access Chemical engineering journals so you can get a better overview of all the journals where you can publish open access.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Chemical engineering venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Chemical engineering journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
In the table above, relevance is used to determine the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations demonstrate how frequently publications from this journal are cited in other papers. We obtain this information via OpenAlex. Although the accuracy is questionable, it might nevertheless aid you in gaining an understanding of how prestigious a publication is overall.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is the fee that publishers of some open access journals charge in order to publish articles.
What are the different Open Access types?
Different open access types are commonly described using a colour system. The most commonly recognised names are “green”, “gold”, and “hybrid” open access; however, “bronze”, “black”, and “diamond” also exist.
