Molecular Diversity
Aims & Scope

Aims & Scope
Molecular Diversity is a new publication forum for the rapid publication of refereed papers dedicated to describing the development, application and theory of molecular diversity and combinatorial chemistry in basic and applied research and drug discovery. The journal publishes both short and full papers, perspectives, news and reviews dealing with all aspects of the generation of molecular diversity, application of diversity for screening against alternative targets of all types (biological, biophysical, technological), analysis of results obtained and their application in various scientific disciplines/approaches including:

  • combinatorial chemistry and parallel synthesis
  • small molecule libraries
  • peptides
  • proteins
  • oligonucleotides
  • carbohydrates
  • structure/function/SAR
  • computational chemistry/molecular design
  • screening techniques and screening interfaces
  • analytical methods
  • robotics/automation/miniaturization
  • new approaches/methods of library formulation and deconvolution
  • directed evolution/origin of life/recombination
  • theory (search techniques, landscapes, random chemistry).

The journal will accept two types of manuscripts: (i) Full length papers giving a comprehensive description of original work. (ii) Short communications for rapid publication of novel observations. In addition, Perspectives, Reviews and Conference Reports are published occasionally.
