Journal of Structural Chemistry

ISSN: 0022-4766 (Print) 1573-8779 (Online)


The Journal of Structural Chemistry is a leading multidisciplinary publication dealing with all structural aspects of modern chemistry. The Journal is a premier forum for researchers exploring the principles of chemical bonding and matter organization, the impact of structural aspects on a chemical property or transformation, and the application of the newest physical methods in chemical structure research. The Journal covers studies on the structure of single molecules and radicals, molecular assemblies, gases, liquids including water and solutions, amorphous and crystalline solids, surfaces, films and nanoparticles – including inorganic, organic and organometallic compounds, molecular and polymeric materials, single crystals and minerals.

The original version of the Journal, Zhurnal Strukturnoi Khimii, published by the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, includes papers from former Soviet Union republics printed in Russian.
The English version, Journal of Structural Chemistry, contains only papers in English. Submissions are acceptable from around the world in English or Russian (those will be translated).
All articles are peer-reviewed.


Journal of Structural Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 210 reviewers, both internal and external (81%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 2 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
