The journal appears in two editions with separate volume and page
numbering: a German edition,
Angewandte Chemie (ISSN 0044-8249
(print), ISSN 1521-3757 (online)), and a fully English-language
edition, ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE INTERNATIONAL EDITION (ISSN 1433-7851
(print), ISSN 1521-3773 (online)). The editions are identical in
content with the exception of occasional reviews of German-language
books or German translations of
Angewandte Chemie is available online and in print. It is a hybrid open access journal and authors may choose to pay a fee to make articles available free of charge. Angewandte Chemie provides free access to supporting information.
In 1887, Ferdinand Fischer founded the ZEITSCHRIFT FüR DIE CHEMISCHE
INDUSTRIE (JOURNAL FOR THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY). In 1888, the title was
changed to ZEITSCHRIFT FüR ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE (Journal of Applied
Chemistry), and volume numbering started over. This title was kept
until the end of 1941 when it was changed to DIE CHEMIE. Until 1920,
the journal was published by Springer Verlag and by Verlag Chemie
starting in 1921. Due to
World War II
In 1962, the English-language edition was launched as ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE INTERNATIONAL EDITION IN ENGLISH (ISSN 0570-0833, CODEN ACIEAY, abbreviated as ANGEW. CHEM. INT. ED. ENGL.), which has a separate volume counting. With the beginning of Vol. 37 (1998) "in English" was dropped from the journal name.
Several journals have merged into Angewandte, including CHEMISCHE TECHNIK/CHEMISCHE APPARATUR in 1947 and ZEITSCHRIFT FüR CHEMIE in 1990.
While it has been suggested that Angewandte's impact factor is as high as it is in comparison to other chemistry journals because the journal contains reviews, the editors claim this effect is too small to explain the difference or affect the ranking of the journal in its subject group.
