Aside from PlosOne, which other good (impact factor) open access journals would you recommend for publishing research related to medicinal chemistry? Thank you very much for any feedback. Kind regards, Atanas -- http://homepage.univie.ac.at/atanas.atanasov/

This question has no further details.

I have to admit up-front that, although a strong proponent of open access, I haven't made as strong a commitment to seeking out open access journals as I should have. So my answer will be a bit naive, and will hopefully be superseded by others.

So with those caveats, all I'm aware of are a cluster of journals in the 2-5 - 3.0 impact factor range, including OmicsGroup's "Medicinal Chemistry", MDPI's "Molecules", and the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry. The latter two address the broader field of organic chemistry, but certainly accept med chem articles.

I apologize for the repost, but on my first attempt the forum seemed to hide the second paragraph of my response, which happened to be the only place I said anything of potential substance. Anyway, what I had said was that all I'm aware of are a cluster of journals in the 2.5 - 3.0 impact factor range, including OmicsGroup's "Medicinal Chemistry", MDPI's "Molecules", and the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry.

Hi Atanas, I’d have to suggest Future Medicinal Chemistry’s sister publication Future Science OA, but I might be biased because I’m the editor! It’s a new launch, so is as-yet too young for an Impact Factor, but it’s content thus far is excellent quality, and is being very well read owing to the way we promote the content. If you’d like more info click here: http://www.future-science-group.com/journalprofile/future-science-oa/, or just contact me at f.lake@futuremedicine.com!
