Angewandte Chemie (German pronunciation: [ˈʔaŋɡəˌvantə çeˈmiː], meaning "Applied Chemistry") is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that is published by Wiley-VCH on behalf of the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker). Publishing formats include feature length reviews, short highlights, research communications, minireviews, essays, book reviews, meeting reviews, correspondences, corrections, and obituaries. This journal strongly emphasises review articles covering all aspects of chemistry. Its current impact factor is 13.734 (2012), making it, arguably, the most respected journal in the field of chemistry and biochemistry (other than Cell, Science, journals from Nature-family, Accounts, and Review-journals).[1]


The journal appears in two editions with separate volume and page numbering: a German edition, Angewandte Chemie (ISSN 0044-8249 (print), ISSN 1521-3757 (online)), and a fully English-language edition, Angewandte Chemie International Edition (ISSN 1433-7851 (print), ISSN 1521-3773 (online)). The editions are identical in content with the exception of occasional reviews of German-language books or German translations of IUPAC recommendations.

Business model

Angewandte Chemie is available online and in print. It is a hybrid open access journal and authors may choose to pay a fee to make articles available free of charge. Angewandte Chemie provides open access to supporting information.

Publication history

In 1887, Ferdinand Fischer founded the Zeitschrift für die Chemische Industrie (Journal for the Chemical Industry). In 1888, the title was changed to Zeitschrift für Angewandte Chemie (Journal of Applied Chemistry), and volume numbering started over. This title was kept until the end of 1941 when it was changed to Die Chemie. Until 1920, the journal was published by Springer Verlag and by Verlag Chemie starting in 1921. Due to World War II, the journal did not publish from April 1945 to December 1946. In 1947, publication was resumed under the current title, Angewandte Chemie.[2]

In 1962, the English-language edition was launched as Angewandte Chemie International Edition in English (ISSN 0570-0833, CODEN ACIEAY, abbreviated as Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. Engl.), which has a separate volume counting. With the beginning of Vol. 37 (1998) "in English" was dropped from the journal name.

Several journals have merged into Angewandte, including Chemische Technik/Chemische Apparatur in 1947 and Zeitschrift für Chemie in 1990.


While it has been suggested that Angewandte's impact factor is as high as it is in comparison to other chemistry journals because the journal contains reviews, the editors claim this effect is too small to explain the difference or affect the ranking of the journal in its subject group.[3]
