Uncovering the Artwork on ACS Inorganic & Organic Journal Covers

To celebrate an exciting 2018 for Inorganic Chemistry, Organometallics, and The Journal of Organic Chemistry, ACS Publications has created posters featuring the vibrant cover art from the 24 issues published in each of these journals last year.

Cover artwork says a lot about chemists: Scientists do more than just research, they like to express their creativity and take pride in attractively presenting their results.

Download a high-resolution pdf of your favorite journal cover poster below—use as a screensaver, share on social media, share with colleagues and members of your research group, and print your own (designed for  18 x 24 inches/457 mm x 610 mm) to hang in your office, lab, or prominent location in your department.

You can also access high-resolution versions of each cover featured on the posters in the Cover Art Gallery on each journal’s website—check out 2018 and prior years:

Cover Art Criteria

At Inorganic Chemistry, the Editor-in-Chief’s office contacts authors of submitted papers to invite Front Cover artwork, however, volunteer front cover suggestions are considered. The journal is looking for aesthetically pleasing covers that exhibit simplicity, clarity, and eye-catching graphics. Some sheets may include supporting text if the artwork is not self-explanatory.

At Organometallics, the Editor-in-Chief’s office contacts authors of submitted papers to invite Front Cover artwork, however, volunteer front cover suggestions are considered. The journal is looking for visually captivating and scientifically interesting covers that exhibit simplicity and clarity. Please see the Author Guidelines for more details on graphics requirements.

At The Journal of Organic Chemistry, the Editor-in-Chief’s office contacts authors of submitted papers to invite Front Cover artwork, however, volunteer front cover suggestions are considered. The journal is looking for cover art that is visually captivating as well as scientifically interesting. No text can be included on the cover, as it should reflect the science using the graphical elements. The cover should not have pictures of persons alive or dead or places/names that are connected to the place where the research was conducted.

ACS journals also offer all authors to promote their work through Supplementary Covers, up to three of which are published each issue, with voluntary submissions subject to a selection process and processing fee.

Submit Your Next Paper

While you are at it, consider submitting your next paper to Inorganic Chemistry, Organometallics, or The Journal of Organic Chemistry.

  • Inorganic Chemistry is the premier journal in its field, publishing fundamental studies focused on structure, bonding, spectroscopy, and reactivity of molecular and extended solid-state compounds and materials from across the periodic table.
  • Organometallics is the flagship publication of organometallic chemistry, publishing research on synthesis, structure, bonding, chemical reactivity, and reaction mechanisms for a variety of applications, including catalyst design and catalytic processes, transition-metal and main-group inorganic chemistry, synthetic aspects of polymer and materials science, and bioorganometallic chemistry.
  • The Journal of Organic Chemistry is the premier forum for publishing inquisitive and thorough studies on all aspects of organic chemistry, from new reactions, structures, and functions through to their scope, mechanisms, and applications.

The Editorial Teams at these journals look forward to you submitting your group’s future work in 2019 and beyond. ACS salutes and thanks to all editors, reviewers, and authors for the many roles you play that contribute to the global chemistry community.
