Aims and Scope

SynOpen is an international, single-anonymized peer-reviewed, open access journal reporting current research results in chemical sciences in full paper, letter and review format.

Target readership

SynOpen caters to a wide-range of chemists throughout industry and academia. We publish articles from across the chemistry portfolio, as long as synthesis or synthetic methods are one of the research focal points. People citing the work published in SynOpen come from all over the world and from a range of scientific disciplines.

Our principles

SynOpen follows the principle: FAST, FAIR, FLEXIBLE.

  • FAST: SynOpen uses a new peer review method called Select Crowd Review. This method ensures a fast as well as high-quality reviewing process. The review period ends after max. 72 hours and the editor makes a decision on the paper.
    Please contact if you want to learn more about Select Crowd Review or send your CV if you are interested in joining - we are constantly looking for new highly motivated crowd members!
  • FAIR: Articles published in SynOpen are open access which means that they are accessible free of charge and reach a broad, international readership. The editors and the editorial office support the community with a personal touch and high-quality editing services.
  • FLEXIBLE: SynOpen covers all fields of scientific endeavor that involve organic synthesis, including catalysis, organometallic, medicinal, biological and related disciplines and offers a variety of formats for publication.

Impact Factor 2022: 2.5
