Today, ACS publishes 50 peer-reviewed journals with cutting-edge articles across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. The breadth and scope of ACS Publications journals is unparalleled, stretching across chemistry, physics, and biology. Every year over 100,000 authors and their research teams from the community of scientists worldwide submit their work for consideration in these journals.

ACS journals are available at more than 5,000 academic, business, and corporate institutions worldwide. In addition, over 158,000 ACS members have access to articles from ACS journals as a benefit of membership. ACS editors are all independent active scientific researchers, highly published in their respective fields of inquiry.
