The Zeitschrift für Naturforschung B: A Journal of Chemical Sciences (often abbreviated Z. Naturforsch. B) is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal. The journal publishes "fundamental studies in all areas of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and analytical chemistry"[1] in both English and German. Articles in German are required to be accompanied by an English-language title and abstract.[2] According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2012 impact factor of 0.864;[3] It is ranked 34th out of 43 journals in the "Inorganic & Nuclear Chemistry" category and 42nd out of 55 journals in the "Organic Chemistry" category.[4] The current managing editors are Gerhard Müller (University of Konstanz) and Annette Schier (Technical University Munich).

History[edit]

The Zeitschrift für Naturforschung (English: Journal for Nature Research) was established in 1946 by the Max Planck Institute and the physical sciences (Part A) were separated from the other natural sciences (Part B) from 1947. A further separation occurred in 1973 when the biological sciences were moved to a new journal (Part C).[5] The titles used for Part B have been:

  • Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. B, Anorganische, Organische und Biologische Chemie, Botanik, Zoologie und verwandte Gebiete. (1947–1961)
  • Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. B, Chemie, Biochemie, Biophysik, Biologie und verwandte Gebiete. (ISSN 0044-3174, 1962–1971)
  • Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. Teil B, Anorganische Chemie, Organische Chemie, Biochemie, Biophysik, Biologie. (1972)
  • From 1973, the part B journal was split into Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. Teil B, Anorganische Chemie, Organische Chemie (ISSN 0340-5087, 1973–1987) and the new part C journal Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. Teil C, Biochemie, Biophysik, Biologie, Virologie, separating the chemical and biological sciences
  • Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. B, A Journal of Chemical Sciences. (ISSN 0932-0776, 1987–present)
