Chemistry Journal Trends
This is a repository of resources about trends in chemistry journals, including publishing and use trends, and was created for ease of reference. Listing here is not an endorsement of the content, nor does it suggest that the resource has been reviewed at the time of posting the link. Nor of course is the list exhaustive. You may email suggestions for additional items to include to Brian Simboli .
