|Publication history||2003 to present|
Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry (OBC) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original primary research and review articles. It is published every two weeks by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Like all RSC journals, OBC is widely recognised for its overall quality and its speed of publication - one of the fastest publisher in the organic chemistry field. (Its predecessor journals were Perkin Transactions I and Perkin Transactions II.)
The editor of OBC is Dr Richard Kelly and the current chair of the Editorial Board is Prof. Jeffrey Bode, from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The founding chairman was Prof. Dr. Ben L. Feringa, who is head of organic chemistry at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and is now a member of the OBC Advisory Editorial Board.
The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is a not-for-profit publisher: surplus made by its publishing business is invested to support its aim of advancing the chemical sciences.
