Editor-in-Chief: Kunal Roy (Jadavpur University, India)
Published: Quarterly |Established: 2016
ISSN: 2379-7487|EISSN: 2379-7479|DOI: 10.4018/IJQSPR


The International Journal of Quantitative Structure-Property Relationships (IJQSPR) is a new journal that will explore the latest research surrounding the topic of Quantitative Structure-Property Relationship (QSPR) models and the applications of these models across the fields of materials science, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics, toxicology (including ecotoxicology), and agricultural sciences, among others. The cross-disciplinary applications of QSPR models featured within IJQSPR make this journal an ideal reference source for chemists, researchers, professionals, engineers, and graduate-level students across industries.

Topics Covered

  • Biological applications
  • Chemical applications
  • Chemical Properties
  • Chemometric modeling
  • Development of new descriptors and/or validation metrics
  • Drug design applications
  • Environmental fate modeling
  • Material property modeling
  • Molecular Modeling
  • New software development of QSAR/QSPR applications
  • Physicochemical properties
  • Predictive toxicology
  • Property modeling
  • Risk management applications

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Quantitative Structure-Property Relationships (IJQSPR) is to present double-blind peer-reviewed research articles on all facets of Quantitative Structure-Property Relationship (QSPR) models and applications. In presenting key research in the field of chemical research, IJQSPR aims to advance the current literature available across various chemistry disciplines and serve as a foundation upon which future research on QSPR can evolve.
