Journal Information

Nature Synthesis is a new online journal, launched in January 2022. The journal is interested in all aspects of synthesis, from making discrete molecules to extended materials, as well as technological innovations leading to significant advances in synthetic methods and processes.

Aims & scope

Nature Synthesis aims to bring together researchers from all areas of chemical and materials synthesis, publishing work based on organic, inorganic, organometallic and materials chemistry, as well as interdisciplinary studies at the interfaces between these disciplines.  The journal will focus on the development of new synthetic methods and approaches, together with the preparation of molecular- or materials-based products that have practical value in research and society or extend our conceptual understanding of chemical or material systems.

We are interested in the best research in all areas of synthesis, including the work of scientists in academia and industry. Our broad scope ensures that published work reaches the widest possible audience.

Online publication

Nature Synthesis is an exclusively online publication. Articles are published using an Advanced Online Publication process, giving our authors an earlier publication date and allowing our readers to access papers several weeks before they appear in a specific issue. Note that papers published online are definitive and may be altered only through the publication of an Addendum or Correction, so authors should make every effort to ensure that the page proofs are correct.

Content types

We publish a range of content types, including research Articles, News & Views, Reviews, Perspectives, Comments, Features and Correspondence that elaborate on significant advances in the field and cover topical issues. 

Editors and contact information

Like the other Nature titles, Nature Synthesis has no external editorial board. Instead, all editorial decisions are made by a dedicated team of full-time professional editors. For information on their research backgrounds and scientific interests, see About the Editors.
