PCCP publishes important new research in the areas of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry.
To be suitable for publication in PCCP, articles must include significant new physical insights; this is the prime criterion that referees and the Editors will judge against when evaluating submissions.
Routine work and applications of established techniques are not suitable for PCCP
The subject scope of PCCP continues to reflect a wide range of current research activities in the broad communities it serves. Papers in research areas such as spectroscopy, dynamics, kinetics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, catalysis, surface science, quantum mechanics and theoretical developments play an important part in the journal. Interdisciplinary research areas such as polymers and soft matter, materials, nanoscience, surfaces/interfaces, and biophysical chemistry are especially welcomed whenever they include a physico-chemical approach.
