Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
This Specialty section provides a single forum to highlight all aspects of catalysis and photocatalysis, presenting a balanced mix of fundamental, experimental and technology-oriented work. It publishes high quality articles focusing on heterogenous, homogenous, industrial, enzymatic, organic-synthetic, electrochemical, molecular, cluster, ordered (crystalline) surface, phase-transfer, acid-base or asymmetric catalysis/photocatalysis. Although the principles and basic mechanisms of catalysis and photocatalysis are fundamentally different, there is considerable overlap in the materials, experimental procedures, analytical methods or theories, and thus a mixed publication in this single forum provides significant inspiration and stimulation for sound progress in studies in both fields. Articles must show conceptual advances or novel insights into catalytic/photocatalytic processes or demonstrate a correlation between synthesis, structure and performance of catalytic/photocatalytic systems.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Catalysis and Photocatalysis welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Code, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Erratum, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Catalysis and Photocatalysis, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Catalysis and Photocatalysis will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Chemistry.
