Growing Globally: Recognizing Japanese Authors

Over the past five years, ACS journals published nearly 2,000 articles from Japan. ACS Publications would like to extend its sincere gratitude to the ten editors located in Japan, who exemplify research excellence and provide leadership to ACS journals.

Though there is no way to showcase all of the important research from our distinguished Japanese authors, the articles listed here represent some highlights of the research published in ACS journals from Japan. This list is compiled based on a selection of ACS Editors’ Choice, ACS Author Choice, most cited, most downloaded, and general interest articles based on our internal data and recommendations. Finally, we thank our Japanese authors for their contributions that helped ACS journals receive more than 2.7 million total citations, and are once again ranked the most-cited and/or impactful scientific journals in 14 scientific categories, including 6 core chemistry categories.

On our Growing Globally website, we have compiled a list of recent important papers by Japanese authors from each of the 6 core chemistry categories. Visit the site to lean more about the contributions of Japanese chemists, read a profile of Journal of Proteome Research Associate Editor Setsuko Komatsu and more.
