Welcome to BMC

We are delighted to announce that Journal of Cheminformatics is now part of the BMC family of journals. The BMC website already receives over 100 million views per year and has expanded beyond biomedicine into the physical sciences, mathematics and engineering disciplines to offer a wider portfolio of subject fields on a single platform for authors considering open access publishing. Bookmark our new URL and make sure to sign up to our article alerts (https://jcheminf.biomedcentral.com/) so you can keep up with all of the latest research and articles and read more about BMC’s pioneering spirit.

Featured article: International chemical identifier for reactions (RInChI)

The Reaction InChI (RInChI) extends the idea of the InChI, which provides a unique descriptor of molecular structures, towards reactions. Prototype versions of the RInChI have been available since 2011. The first official release (RInChI-V1.00), funded by the InChI Trust, is now available for download (http://www.inchi-trust.org/downloads/). This release defines the format and generates hashed representations (RInChIKeys) suitable for database and web operations. The RInChI provides a concise description of the key data in chemical processes, and facilitates the manipulation and analysis of reaction data.
