The Angewandte Chemie and the Angewandte Chemie International Edition , usually with Angew. Chem. Or Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. abbreviated, is a weekly peer review - journal . The first edition came out in 1887. Angewandte Chemie is a publication by the Society of German Chemists and is published by Wiley-VCH Verlag .

The impact factor in 2019 was 12,959. According to the statistics of the ISI Web of Knowledge , the journal with this impact factor ranks 15th out of 177 journals in the category of multidisciplinary chemistry . The cost of an annual subscription for libraries in Europe is 6508 euros for the printed or electronic edition. A combined subscription to both editions costs 7,485 euros (as of 2013).


After German reunification, the journal of the GDR chemists' association Zeitschrift für Chemie was integrated into today's Angewandte Chemie . The articles published in the journal cover the entire field of chemistry . In addition to the scientific articles ( letters ), the journal also contains news , highlights , essays , articles and book reviews .

The editor-in-chief of Angewandte has been Neville Compton since October 1, 2017 . He succeeds Peter Gölitz , who worked as an editor for 35 years. In 2007, the editorial team was awarded the German Language Institutional Prize for the further development of German as a scientific language .

In 2020, a publication by Tomáš Hudlický caused a sensation. In this, he criticized diversity efforts in chemistry as harmful and the Chinese scientific community was defamed. As a result, both the editorial staff of Angewandte and Wiley-VCH-Verlag distanced themselves from the content and withdrew the article. The GDCh as publisher also apologized. Some scientists on the expert advisory board also left the same in protest. As a result, the responsible editors were suspended and the referees removed from the selection of the applied. In addition, an interim editor-in-chief made up of Nathalie Weickgenannt, Frank Maaß, Theresa Kueckmann and Xin Su was set up.
