List of scientific journals in chemistry

Many scientific journals in chemistry contain original research, reviews of other publications, or both, but it can be difficult to rank them by prestige or rigor in accepting articles. All journal articles reference other journal articles, and one can measure how many times articles in one journal, over a period of time, are referenced by all others. One ranking system, therefore, measures how many total references a journal has in a given time. However, journals with many articles are likely to out-rank journals with few articles. Therefore, one can also look at the impact factor of a journal. The impact factor is the average number of references to each article in a particular journal, and therefore measures the worth of each article to the journal.

There are only two or three journals in common between the 'impact factor' list and either of the lists based on total counts of citations. The 'impact factor' list contains very many more review journals. Review journals tend to have high impact factors because they publish relatively few articles, but they are referenced many times. For example, Chemical Reviews was cited 45129 times and published 183 articles. Journal of the American Chemical Society has 231890 citations, but ends up with a lower impact factor because it published many more articles: 3167.
