Chemistry Central journals to transfer to SpringerOpen

At the end of 2015 the Chemistry Central brand will be retired with the existing journals transferring to the SpringerOpen portfolio. Therefore the beta version of our journal websites will now display this new branding.

We see this as the natural progression for the portfolio following the integration into the Springer Chemistry family at the end of 2013 and expect this will allow the journals to go from strength to strength as part of the expanding fully open access SpringerOpen journal portfolio.

Aims and scope

Journal of Cheminformatics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research in all aspects of cheminformatics and molecular modelling.

Coverage includes, but is not limited to:

  • chemical information systems, software and databases, and molecular modelling
  • chemical structure representations and their use in structure, substructure, and similarity searching of chemical substance and chemical reaction databases
  • computer and molecular graphics, computer-aided molecular design, expert systems, QSAR, and data mining techniques

Editors' Profiles

Christoph Steinbeck 
Head of Chemoinformatics and Metabolism at the European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

The Steinbeck group research focuses on metabolism, metabolomics, natural products and cheminformatics and bioinformatics applications and algorithms.

His group develops and contributes to the development of leading open source software and open chemistry databases, including: the Chemistry Development Kit (CDK); Bioclipse; OrChem; CDK-Taverna; ChEBI; IntEnz and Rhea.

David Wild 
Associate Professor, Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, leading the Cheminformatics & Chemogenomics Research Group.

Research focus is on the development of algorithms and tools for large scale integrative data mining of drug discovery, chemical and biological data in the emerging fields of chemogenomics and systems chemical biology.

Tools and algorithms created in his labs include: Chem2Bio2RDF; ChemBioSpace Association Search; WENDI; ChemoHub; PlotViz; ChemViz; PubChemSR; ICEP; and ChemBioGrid.
