About Oxygen


Oxygen (ISSN 2673-9801) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research in the areas of chemistry, biology and biomedicine that all relate to oxygen. The aim is to provide a platform for research and findings regarding oxygen studies and related topics, including: chemical properties of oxygen and reactions in which it is involved, the role of oxygen in biological systems, reactive oxygen species, antioxidants and redox reactions, etc.

Oxygen publishes regular research articles, reviews and short notes. We encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. For theory papers, full details of proofs must be provided so that results can be checked. For experimental papers, full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Additionally, electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations, experimental procedure, etc., can be deposited, along with the publication as 'Supplementary Material'.
