To change the world, scientists need a global perspective. With a readership and authorship spanning more than 6,000 institutions in 75 countries, ACS Publications delivers the global perspective needed to perform research and guide organizations in today’s rapidly changing environment.Learn More
Many medical researchers are focused on ways to save patients’ lives. For some, the barrier is cost of medical care; others focus on cutting edge technology to find a novel solution to save a life or preserve quality of life. From targeted reagents for disease detection to 3D printing tissue, researchers depend on ACS Publications’ content to fuel life changing research.
Enabling Next-Generation Research
One key to staying ahead of competitors is making sure researchers can access the newest, most novel research. ACS Publications boasts some of the fastest times to publication in scientific publishing. The ongoing introduction of Letters-format journals has allowed ACS Publications to shorten the time from submission to publication to as little as 4 weeks. Our As Soon As Publishable (ASAP) program makes the version of record of every article available days after the article's acceptance, so an author's work does not need to wait for an issue to publish. This brings authors’ work rapid exposure and gives the scientific community access to valuable information faster than ever before.
Excellent Authors, Strong Reviewers
Finding excellent authors and reviewers is a key to developing trusted content. ACS Publications not only publishes top authors, including more than 40 Nobel Laureates, we also provide upcoming professionals services to help them develop into the top quality authors and reviewers needed to uphold the high standards science demands.
ACS Publications is a division of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information.
A nonprofit organization chartered by the United States Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers, and related professionals around the globe.
The Society publishes numerous scientific journals and databases; convenes major research conferences; and provides educational, science policy, and career programs in chemistry. ACS also provides grants for students and gives more than $20 million every year in grants for research in the chemical sciences. ACS plays a leadership role in educating and communicating with public policy makers and the general public about the importance of chemistry in our lives. This includes identifying new solutions, improving public health, protecting the environment, and contributing to the economy.
