By membership to these organizations, our members can join their actions as preferred and privileged ones, in the working groups, they can collaborate with their colleagues.

The Society owns three scholarly peer-reviewed e-journals, namely Journal of the Turkish Chemical Society, Section A: Chemistry (JOTCSA), Journal of the Turkish Chemical Society, Section B: Chemical Engineering (JOTCSB), and Journal of the Turkish Chemical Society, Section C: Chemical Education (JOTCSC).
