Open Access Polymer Journals

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

Polymer is substance composed of macromolecules with repeating structural units

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 Polymer Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Polymer manuscript.
We have thousands of high-impact factor Polymer journals in our list.In many cases, you only see lists of Polymer journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access Polymer journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Polymer 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 Polymer journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and practices through which research is freely distributed online
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 show how often articles from this journal have been referenced in other works. OpenAlex is where we get this data from. Although the accuracy is debatable, it can nevertheless help you get a sense of how prestigious a journal is in general.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or paper, you can simply type it in the search box above to see your results. If you'd like to see a similar list to this one, check
How can I publish my paper on
At the moment, we do not offer publishing services, that's why we made these lists, so you can find the right journal to publish your paper in. Our goal with is to help disseminate research.
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?
The most common types are “Green Open Access”, “Gold Open Access” and “Hybrid Open Access”.
