Royal Society Open Science is now published in collaboration with the Royal Society of Chemistry.
As part of this collaboration the Royal Society of Chemistry manages the editorial aspects up to acceptance, including editorial content development and peer-review, for articles published in the chemistry section of Royal Society Open Science.
For instructions on submitting research, please visit our information for authors page, and submit your article via the Royal Society Open Science manuscript submission site.

Our chemistry subject editor is Professor Anthony Stace FRS who is based at the University of Nottingham in the Department of Physical Chemistry. He studies the properties of gas-phase micro-clusters and how collections of atoms and molecules evolve into bulk behaviour. He was awarded the Tilden medal and lectureship from the Royal Society of Chemistry in 1995; elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2002; and received the Aston medal from the British Mass Spectrometry Society in 2013.
Dr Hazel Cox is based at the University of Sussex. Her research focuses on using quantum theory to determine the chemical and physical properties of metal-ligand complexes and to explore fundamental interactions in three- particle systems.
Dr Patricia Hunt's research group at Imperial College London focuses on solvents and solvation (particularly ionic liquids and aqueous solutions), catalytic mechanisms, chemical reactivity, hydrogen-bonding and molecular orbital theory.
|NANO-SCIENCE AND MATERIALS
Professor Hisanori Shinohara is based at Nagoya University, Japan. His research focuses on elucidating structures, properties and applications of fullerenes, endohedral metallofullerenes, carbon nanotubes, nano-peapods and graphene from various points of view.
Professory John Moses is based at the University of Nottingham. Research in the Moses group at the University of Nottingham is focussed on the use of synthetic chemistry to help solve biological problems. They use a number of scientific techniques and are active in several complementary areas, including anticancer drug discovery, biomimetic synthesis, biomimetic diversity oriented synthesis, click chemistry, DNA based asymmetric catalysis, target guided synthesis and in situ drug discovery and structural biology.
