Journal of Cheminformatics

The Journal of Cheminformatics is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal that covers cheminformatics and molecular modelling.[1] It was established in 2009 with David Wild (Indiana University) and Christoph Steinbeck (then at EMBL-EBI) as founding editors-in-chief, and was originally published by Chemistry Central.[2] At the end of 2015, the Chemistry Central brand was retired and its titles, including Journal of Cheminformatics, were merged with the SpringerOpen portfolio of open access journals.[3]
