RSC Advances is an online-only peer-reviewed scientific journal covering research on all aspects of the chemical sciences. It was established in 2011 and is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The editor-in-chief is Mike D. Ward (University of Sheffield).

In 2014, RSC Advances moved to a very high publication frequency,[1] initially about 100 issues per year ( similar to that of ChemComm), but later in the year (and in 2015) turned to even higher frequency—however it is not a continuous journal. In terms of the number of pages published annually, this has increased dramatically from about 26,500 in 2013 to over 65,000 in 2014.[2]

In late 2016, it was announced that with effect from January 2017, RSC Advances, the world’s largest chemistry journal would convert from a subscription based journal to an open access journal. Article Processing Charges will be £500 for 2017/2018 and £750 thereafter[3][4]


Abstracting and indexing[edit]

The journal is abstracted and indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded,[5] Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences,[5] and Scopus.[6]
