The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has announced the closing of the journal ACS Combinatorial Science at the end of 2020.
Founded in 1999 as the Journal of Combinatorial Chemistry, ACS Combinatorial Science is the only journal in the ACS portfolio focused on a way of doing research, which applies in various forms to an ever-growing range of fields. Because it weaves into the fabric of modern molecular, biological and materials science, the development of combinatorial methods has become less prominent as a stand-alone endeavour. ACS, therefore, encourages authors to submit future applications-focused research to discipline-specific journals in the ACS Publications portfolio.
Research from ACS Combinatorial Science will remain in ACS’ archives and will continue to be fully searchable and available through institutional subscriptions.
ACS Combinatorial Science will stop accepting submissions on August 13, and its last issue will be published in December.
