Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements

Martin D. Rudd Early Career Researcher Prize

The Editorial Team of Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements are pleased to introduce the Martin D. Rudd Early Career Researcher Prize to encourage and celebrate the spirit of lifelong learning.  

This new annual prize will award $1,000 to an up-and-coming principal investigator who has authored an article in Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements in the previous year’s volume. To be eligible, the author must be within twelve (12) years of receiving her/his Ph.D. and in a full-time academic or government laboratory position. 

All manuscripts are eligible for the Early Career Researcher Prize. All authors published in Volume 198 (2023) will be contacted in January 2024 by the Journal’s Portfolio Manager with more information about eligibility, requirements, and due date for nominations (including self-nominations!)

More about the journal

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

The Journal adheres to the highest standards of publishing ethics, with rigorous processes in place to ensure this is achieved. Taylor & Francis is a member of Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE) and utilizes Similarity Check via CrossRef for all journals.
