Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling

In conjunction with Elsevier, the Society publishes the Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling (JMGM) The journal is published 8 times a year and is devoted to high quality practical and theoretical papers on the use of computers for the investigation of molecular structure, function and interaction.

In 1998, the Computers in Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society (COMP) partnered with Elsevier Science and affiliated with the Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling. Don Boyd served as the COMP-appointed Editor from 1998 until 2001, when Andy Holder took over as an editor and served until 2009. Jeffry D. Madura was the editor representing the COMP division until his untimely passing in March 2017. Emilio Xavier Esposito is currenlty the JMGM editor associated with the COMP Division.

COMP members are encouraged to use JMGM as a forum for their publications. Articles describing research of substantial merit are invited. All articles are subject to standard refereeing in the interest of constructively improving the papers.

Web submission to JMGM offers enhanced convenience and speed of processing for papers. The same formatting and standards of authorship as defined in the instructions to authors (pdf version) are still required.

Jeffry D. Madura Memorial Graphics Prize (formerly the JMGM/MGMS Graphics Prize)

While not a COMP award, the JMGM Graphics Prize was named after long time COMP member, Chair, Programming Chair, and Executive Board member Jeffry D. Madura in the Fall of 2018. The Jeffry D. Madura Memorial Graphics Prize is co-sponsored by Elsevier and the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society (MGMS), for the best piece of artwork in the annual volume. The primary criteria for the prize are the visual impact of the image and the scientific information that it conveys. The prize is judged by the two editors of JMGM.
