Open Access Physical chemistry Journals

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

Physical chemistry is study of macroscopic, atomic, subatomic, and particulate phenomena in chemical systems in terms of laws and concepts of physics

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

We hope this list of Physical chemistry OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Physical chemistry manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Physical chemistry journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Rather than just the top hits Physical chemistry journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Physical chemistry journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Physical 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 Physical chemistry journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access is the free online access of research articles coupled with the rights to use and distribute these articles fully in the digital environment.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
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 focus at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
An APC is the article processing charge that an author of a given research paper has to pay in order to get it published in a journal. APCs are most commonly used by open access journals or by journals who offer open access publishing.
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.
