Aim and Scope


The Journal of Physical Chemistry A/B/C is devoted to reporting new and original experimental
and theoretical basic research of interest to physical chemists, biophysical chemists, and
chemical physicists. Review and Feature Articles, which include extensive discussions on
previously published literature, are by invitation only (please refer to the next section on
Manuscript Types).
An essential criterion for acceptance of research articles in the journal is that they provide new
physical insight. Manuscripts that are essentially reporting data or applications of data are, in
general, not suitable for publication in JPC A/B/C.
