Open Access Chemistry Journals

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

Chemistry is branch of physical science concerned with the composition, structure and properties of matter

All articles published in Open Access journals have undergone peer review and upon acceptance are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.

This list of Chemistry Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Chemistry manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Chemistry journals that may be relevant to your field of study. In any case, we've also included other journals that may also offer more affordable publishing fees.In many cases, you only see lists of Chemistry journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access Chemistry journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Chemistry 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 Chemistry journals in this list are indexed in OA.mg.
If you spot any mistakes in this table of Chemistry OA journals, don’t hesitate to send us an email.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I publish my Chemistry paper?
You can publish your Chemistry paper in the Open Access journals in this list
What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access aims to provide immediate and unrestricted access to research articles while along you to also share it freely
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
Our focus at OA.mg is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
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?
Although there are Gold, Green, Hybrid, Bronze, Diamond, and Black Open Access licenses, here are the most common ones: Full Gold Open Access: article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Hybrid Open Access: refers to a publishing model in which subscription-based journals allow authors to make individual articles gold open access immediately on payment of an article publication charge. Green Open Access: refers to the possibility to make subscription-based journal articles open access by uploading the peer-reviewed and accepted author manuscript to an institutional repository (such as DiVA)
