Journal of Systems Chemistry

The term "Systems Chemistry" emerged, during the Chembiogenesis 2005 Conference in Venice, within the communities researching the origin and sythesis of life, as this as been the most challenging field in Systems Chemistry. However, Systems Chemistry encompasses much more, it offers a plethora of new opportunities for revealing life-like signatures in all areas of chemistry.

The Journal of Systems Chemistry is planned to be relaunched as a quarterly Journal in print + online (+ open access) in 2018. Its scope will cover the following topics:

- complex molecular networks
- catalytic, autocatalytic, self-replicating and self-reproducing systems
- dynamic combinatorial chemistry
- emergent phenomena in molecular networks
- information processing by chemical reactions
- bifurcation and chiral symmetry breaking
- bottom up approaches to synthetic biology and chemical evlotion
- chemical self-organization inspired by the origin and synthesis of life
- xenobiology
- the conjunction of supramolecular, prebiotic and biomimetic chemistry, theoretical biology, complex systems physics, and earth, planetary and space sciences centered in chemistry.
