Advances in Chemical Research (ACR) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of chemistry. 

As well as reflecting the traditional core subjects of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, the journal also features a broad range of chemical research in areas including, but not limited to, catalysis, computational and theoretical, environmental, green , medicinal, nuclear, polymer, supramolecular and surface chemistry. Other cross-disciplinary topics, such as bioinorganic, bio-organic, organometallic and physical–organic chemistry, will also be featured. 

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Organic chemistry
Inorganic chemistry
Physical chemistry
Chemical biology
Analytical chemistry
Supramolecular chemistry
