Communications Chemistry first year anniversary collection

Communications Chemistry published its first articles in March 2018. In this collection, our editors highlight some of their favorite papers from our first year of publishing. This collection also includes all Review and Comment articles published during our first year, including the first in a series of Q&A's that we have commissioned exploring the important relationships  between scientists that go into publishing new research.

Our selected papers celebrate the diversity of our content across the chemical sciences, ranging from articles providing fundamental new chemical insight to applied research and everything in between. Finally, we link to all the 'Behind the Paper' posts published by our authors on the Nature Research Chemistry Community site where our authors tell the stories behind their Communications Chemistry articles. 

About Communications Chemistry

Communications Chemistry is an open access journal from Nature Research publishing high-quality research, reviews and commentary in all areas of the chemical sciences. Research papers published by the journal represent significant advances bringing new insight to a specialized area of research. Read more about the journal here

About the editors

Communications Chemistry is edited by both in-house professional editors and academic Editorial Board Members. Our editors work closely together to ensure the quality of our published papers and consistency in author experience.

Many of our published articles are linked to 'Behind the Paper' blog posts written by the authors and hosted on the Nature Research Chemistry Community site. See below for a complete list of posts from our first year:
