Publications

Foundations of Chemistry (FOCH) is the official journal of the International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry (ISPC).  FOCH publishes peer-reviewed articles on a wide range of topics, including chemical models, language, metaphors, and theoretical terms; chemical evolution and artificial self-replication; the social and ethical aspects of chemistry's professionalism; modeling and instrumentation in chemistry; the nature of explanation in the chemical sciences; theoretical chemistry, molecular structure and chaos; ancient chemistry, medieval chemistry and alchemy; philosophical and historical articles; and more.

As a tradition, FOCH publishes proceedings of the ISPC meetings and ISPC members can receive the journal at a reduced rate.
