Peer-reviewed research

IChemE, in partnership with publisher Elsevier, produces eight journals:

A ninth journal, Molecular Systems Design & Engineering, is jointly published by IChemE and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).

Each of our journals contains original, peer-reviewed chemical, process and related engineering research.

IChemE's annual medals and awards programme recognises excellence in chemical engineering practice and outstanding contributions to the Institution or the wider community.

The medals awarded in the publications area are:

  • Senior Moulton Medal for the best paper published by IChemE
  • Junior Moulton Medal for the best paper published by IChemE by an author, or co-author, who has graduated within the last 10 years (excluding career breaks) at the time of submission of the paper
  • Hanson Medal for the best article published in The Chemical Engineer magazine
  • Hutchison Medal for the most catalytic or thought-provoking paper published by IChemE. 

Medal winners are recommended by the Publications Medals Board.
