Russian Journal of Coordination Chemistry

ISSN: 1070-3284 (Print) 1608-3318 (Online)


Russian Journal of Coordination Chemistry (Koordinatsionnaya Khimiya) was founded in 1975 and is now one of the most prominent chemical journals in Russia. It presents reviews, original papers, and communications on all aspects of theoretical and experimental coordination chemistry. Modern coordination chemistry occupies a special interdisciplinary position in the chemical sciences, being at the junction of various fields and serving as a bridge between the inorganic, organic, physical, analytical, and biological branches of chemistry. The Russian school of coordination chemistry, which began as a creative friendship between A. Werner and L. Chugaev, has developed strong ties with leading western chemical schools. Russian chemists have contributed a great deal to the formation and growth of this field of chemistry and still play a leading role in the world chemical science. The materials published in the Russian Journal of Coordination Chemistry are meant not only for specialists in various fields of pure chemistry, but also for those working in related disciplines, such as chemical engineering, chemical analysis, molecular catalysis, ecology, biology, medicine, agriculture, materials science, hydrometallurgy, and energetics.


Russian Journal of Coordination Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 20 reviewers, both internal and external (50%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 14 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 20 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
