The journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC) emerged from the merger of Fresenius' Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Analusis, Química Analítica and Chemical Analysis / Chemia Analityczna. It is one of the world's leading journals in the field of analytical and bioanalytical chemistry.
The members of the Division of Analytical Chemistry have access to the full versions of all articles via MyGDCh.
There is a special relationship between the Division of Analytical Chemistry and the journal ABC, not only because this journal emerged from the Fresenius Journal for analytical chemistry , but also because the GDCh, like other European specialist societies, holds shares in the journal alongside Springer. Therefore, members of the Division can read the magazine for free and the Division finances its extensive scholarship program through the lease payments.
These annual lease payments depend on ABC's success. After all, almost 50% of the accepted manuscripts come from Europe and only German scientists can be proud of an impressive 14% of accepted works. This percentage is leading in Europe and has been almost stable over the years. In addition to "Full Papers" on significant advances in research, "Communications" can also be published, which, as proof of principle, provide analysts with new, important contributions. Experience shows that the impact factor is primarily influenced by ?critical reviews? and ?trends?. In addition, feature articles should present current problems of high general importance and of interest to society from the perspective of the analyst. "Spotlights" make it clear that in the case of current developments in analytics in ABC, the first stages of these developments have often been shown over the years.
ABC is known for the rapid publication of excellent and research-advancing articles on fundamental and application-related areas of analytics and bioanalysis. The publication of well-cited articles means an increasing impact factor and thus increasing contributions from ABC to the Division (both of which are of course influenced by the submission of excellent contributions from Germany). The publication time averages almost 90 days for the online publication. This short time, the high visibility of the journal not only in Europe and the easy access, especially for members of the specialist group, make publishing in ABC attractive and support the activities of the Division.
