Welcome to the Journal of Theoretical and Computational Science: Open Access (JTCO). This new open access journal is being introduced to provide a focal point for publication of articles, letters, and reviews (see Ref.  for detailed information about publication formats) reporting advances in chemical and physico-chemical theories, computational methods, and important applications to problems in chemistry, physics and biology. The Journal will also dedicate special attention to computational aspects of biomedical sciences, including pharmaceutics, bioinformatics and drug discovery. Applications of high performance computing to the scientific advancement and human therapeutics will be object of publication as well. Though the contents will evolve, some specific topics in the chemical and physical frameworks that are appropriate today for JTCO include advances in or applications of ab initio quantum mechanics, density functional theory, statistical mechanics, design and properties of new materials, surface science, Monte Carlo simulations, solvation models, QM/ MM calculations, biomolecular structure prediction, and molecular dynamics in the broadest sense including gas-phase dynamics, ab initio dynamics, biomolecular dynamics, and protein folding. No less important is the intention of attracting audience from diverse other fields which traditionally are not part of the orthodoxy of theoretical and computational sciences. These fields include software development, information science, network theory, chemical informatics, clinical informatics, medicinal chemistry, bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, synthetic biology, and toxicology (additional information about the fields of interest to JTCO can be found in Ref. ).
