10th Anniversary

The year 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of Inorganics, a peer-reviewed open-access journal of inorganic chemistry. Inorganics has published more than 1000 papers in the form of research papers, reviews, and communications. More than 219 of these papers have received over 10 citations. We value the contributions made by all the authors, reviewers and Academic Editors. We hope you can join us in celebrating this milestone for our journal and enjoy the collection below.

Best Wishes from the Editors of Inorganics

Journal History

View the 10-year timeline infographic here. Trace the development of Inorganics from its origins with remarkable events.

The inaugural issue was released. Inorganics was published as a quarterly journal.

Founding Editor-in-Chief:

Prof. Gregory obtained a BSc (Chemistry w/Physics) and PhD (Solid State Chemistry; Prof. M. Weller) from the University of Southampton. Following a Post-Doc at the University of Nottingham (Dr. M. Barker & Prof. P. P. Edwards FRS, University of Birmingham), he won an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 1997. He remained at Nottingham as a Lecturer (2002) and Reader (2005). Prof. Gregory took the WestCHEM Chair in Inorganic Materials at the University of Glasgow in 2006 and was Head of Inorganic Chemistry (2008-2014). He received the RSC Sustainable Energy Award in 2009 and the IOM3 Kroll Medal in 2019.
