Chemistry World is a monthly chemistry news magazine published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The magazine addresses current events in world of chemistry including research, international business news and government policy as it affects the chemical science community, plus the best product applications. It features regular columns by Philip Ball, Derek Lowe, and Paul Docherty. The magazine is sent to all members of the Royal Society of Chemistry and is included in the cost of membership. The front part of the magazine is also available free online, although the core of the online magazine is available only with a subscription. It was first published in January 2004 to replace Chemistry in Britain, the journal with the same general brief which ran from 1965, with "a new title, to acknowledge the international nature of the subject".[1]

Chemistry World is supported by the Chemistry World Podcast, which is presented by Cambridge University scientist Dr Chris Smith, who also edits the Naked Scientists.

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2011 impact factor of 0.159, ranking it 146th out of 154 journals in the category "Chemistry, Multidisciplinary".[2]
