Angewandte Chemie

Angewandte Chemie is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers all aspects of chemistry. Its impact factor was 12.730 in 2010, the highest value for a chemistry-specific journal that publishes original research. It is a journal of the German Chemical Society and is published by Wiley-VCH. Besides original research in the form of short communications, the journal contains review-type articles (reviews, minireviews, essays, highlights), and a magazine section (news, obituaries, book reviews, conference reports). Colloquially, the journal is simply called "Angewandte". "Angewandte Chemie" is German for "applied chemistry", although this translation no longer accurately describes the scope of the journal. 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)), with the magazine and review sections as well as some original research in German, and a fully English-language edition, Angewandte Chemie International Edition (ISSN 1433-7851 (print), ISSN 1521-3773 (online)).
