Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements
is a monthly publication intended to disseminate current trends and novel methods to those working in the broad and interdisciplinary field of heteroatom chemistry. The journal provides high quality services, support, and publishing standards to established researchers and new authors, alike, who submit manuscripts matched with the scope of the journal.Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements
invites original research submissions, communications, and reviews involving chemistry in which select heteroatoms play a pivotal, central role to the presentation. We therefore consider papers on:
- (Bio)organic, (bio)inorganic, heterocyclic, polymer, theoretical, structural, computational, catalytic, interdisciplinary, and spectroscopic chemistry of second row (and beyond) heteroatoms
- The chemistry of phosphorus (including heavier Group 15 elements), sulfur (including heavier Group 16 elements), and silicon (including heavier Group 14 elements).
Pertinent original articles, communications, and reviews that extend into the lighter main group elements may be considered, if sufficiently justified.Peer Review Statement
All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor-in-Chief, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to rigorous and rapid peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer-review is single anonymized.
Manuscripts will not be considered if they are deemed to show:
- Poor preparation, including a lack of attention to the language and grammar, style, format, and characterization of the compounds (see Manuscript Style and Organization);
- A lack of original and focused heteroatom chemistry.
The Editorial Board discourages classical heterocyclic and ring closure chemistry, and papers on such will not be considered unless a significantly novel aspect is clearly presented.
The Editorial Board also discourages work of a narrow scope, or work that is considered fragmented or only presents minor changes to existing methods.Publishing Ethics Statement
