Natural Product Reports is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
It publishes reviews commissioned by the editorial board on all areas of natural products research. The Executive Editor is Richard Kelly.
Natural Product Reports (NPR) is a critical review journal that stimulates progress in all areas of natural products research, including isolation, structural and stereochemical determination, biosynthesis, biological activity, and synthesis.
The scope of the journal is very broad, and many reviews discuss the role of natural products in the wider bioinorganic, bioorganic and chemical biology communities. Areas covered include the following:
Primary and secondary metabolism
NPR articles are designed to give an interesting insight into the topic, focussing on the key developments that have shaped a field rather than giving a very comprehensive overview of all results.
Authors are encouraged to include their own perspective on developments, trends and future directions.
Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited in a given period of time.

Natural product reports journal
The journal was established in 1938 as Lloydia and published by the Lloyd Library and Museum and obtained its present title in 1979.
It has been the official journal of the American Society of Pharmacognosy since 1961. Originally a quarterly publication, it became a bimonthly journal in 1975 and has appeared monthly since 1992.
The American Society of Pharmacognosy began to co-publish the journal with the American Chemical Society in 1996. In 2008, the journal was hijacked by a low-quality open access journal using the same title. As of January 2016, this counterfeit journal was still active.
