Dalton Transactions

Publication history

The journal was established as the Journal of the Chemical Society A: Inorganic, Physical, Theoretical in 1966. In 1972, the journal was divided into three separate journals: Journal of the Chemical Society, Dalton Transactions (covering inorganic and organometallic chemistry), Journal of the Chemical Society, Faraday Transactions 1: Physical Chemistry in Condensed Phases , and Journal of the Chemical Society, Faraday Transactions 2: Molecular and Chemical Physics . The Journal of the Chemical Society, Dalton Transactions was renamed in 2003 to Dalton Transactions. In January 2000, Acta Chemica Scandinavica was absorbed. [4]

While the Journal of the Chemical Society, Dalton Transactions was published as 12 issues a year from 1972, as submissions increased, the journal switched to 24 issues a year in 1992 [5] and then to 48 issues a year in 2006. [6]

In 2010, the journal introduced a sequential volume numbering scheme, with one volume per year. While volume numbers were not assigned retro-actively, the first issue of 2010 was assigned volume 39 (2010 being the 39th year since the establishment of the Journal of the Chemical Society, Dalton Transactions. [7]

Subject coverage

Dalton Transactions publishes articles on all aspects of the chemistry of inorganic and organometallic compounds, including bioinorganic, biological inorganic, and solid-state inorganic chemistry; the application of physicochemical techniques to the study of their structures, properties, and reactions, including kinetics and mechanisms; synthesis and characterisation of new inorganic materials; homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; new or improved experimental techniques and syntheses.

Abstracting and indexing

The journal is abstracted and indexed in: [8]

According to the Journal Citation Reports , the journal has a 2018 impact factor of 4.052, ranking it 5th out of 44 journals in the category "Chemistry, Inorganic & Nuclear". [9]

Dalton Discussions

Dalton Discussions are scientific meetings that provide a forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in focused areas of inorganic chemistry. The papers, which are associated with the oral presentations at the meeting, are published in a special issue of Dalton Transactions, which constitutes a permanent record of the meeting. The meetings are usually held annually. [11]
