Broad Global Exposure
Global Readers & Global Authors
With readers and authors at more than 6,000 institutions in more than 75 countries, ACS Publications delivers the global perspective needed to perform research and guide organizations in today's dynamic environment.
Research spending around the world increases yearly, and it’s crucial to have access to the latest discoveries regardless of where they’re made. As the scientific community becomes increasingly global, international reading and collaboration accelerates discovery by bringing together scientists whose work is complementary.
At ACS Publications, we empower readers around the world to access articles. In fact, more than 77% of article requests originated outside of North America in 2021.
Editorial Offices Worldwide
Regional differences in research and publication requirements require an on-the-ground approach to support our customers, authors, and readers.
In addition to our headquarters in Washington, D.C., ACS Publications staff are based all over the world, with hubs in Beijing, Delhi and Oxford delivering resources, programs, and initiatives specific to local scientific communities.
ACS Publications authors are based all over the world. Journal of the American Chemical Society Editor-in-Chief Erick M. Carreira says the growing geographic diversity of chemistry journals is one of the most dramatic changes that has taken place in scientific publishing over the past 20 years. “It is a testimony to the vibrancy of the discipline that continues to grow and evolve in exciting new directions.”
