Author Guidelines

1. AIM AND SCOPE

European Journal of Chemistry is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research and review articles as well as letters in all areas of chemistry (Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Theoretical and Applied Physical Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Applied and Materials Chemistry, Chemical Technology, Agro Chemical Technology, Pharmaceutical Technology, Colloid Chemistry, Interfacial Chemistry, Surface Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Green Chemistry, etc.).

European Journal of Chemistry is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Full length of the articles and abstracts will be available online at www.eurjchem.com. Articles will be published in the online and print versions.

2. ARTICLE TYPES

Review articles: Review articles are welcome in any area of chemistry and may cover a wider or a more specialized area, if a high impact is expected.

Scientific articles: Scientific articles report on significant and innovative achievements and should exhibit a high level of originality.

Short communications: Short communications generally follow the same order of sections, but should be short (max. 2500 words) and report on a significant aspect of research work meriting a separate publication.

3. DECLARATION

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously, it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere including electronically in the same form, in English or in any other language.

All manuscripts must be accompanied by the Copyright Release Form, which can be found in

http://www.eurjchem.com/index.php/eurjchem/about/submissions#copyrightNotice

or

http://www.eurjchem.com/TempFiles/EurJChemCopyrightReleaseForm.doc

http://www.eurjchem.com/TempFiles/EurJChemCopyrightReleaseForm.pdf

This form must be accepted by all the authors before processing of the manuscript. A scanned copy is acceptable for e-mail submissions.

The use of someone else's ideas or words in their original form or slightly changed without a proper citation is considered plagiarism and will not be tolerated. Even if a citation is given, if quotation Marks ("") are not placed around words taken directly from another author's work, the author is still guilty of plagiarism.

4. ARTICLE STRUCTURE

Manuscript must be written in MS Word format. Manuscript prepared in MS Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in MS Word, European Journal of Chemistry Microsoft Word template file

http://www.eurjchem.com/TempFiles/EurJChemWordTemplate.dot

must be used. Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to "the text". Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line. The format of the manuscript should be as follows:

First page (Cover Page):

4.1. TITLE PAGE: The title page should be a separate file containing the following information, full title of the manuscript, and full names and addresses of all authors. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the official e-mail address of each author. The corresponding author should be clearly indicated with his/her name, full postal address; telephone, mobile phone (if applicable) and fax numbers; and e-mail address.

The cover letter of each paper submitted for publication should clearly present: (a) Scientific motivation (Why this study is of interest); (b) General significance of the obtained results (How this study contributes to the advancement of knowledge in the general area of the study).

Authors should suggest at least 5 potential referees with the appropriate technical expertise, although the Editor will not necessarily approach them. Their addresses, homepage addresses, phone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses should be provided as fully as possible. At least three of the suggested referees must be from a different country than the author's one. At least two of the suggested referees must be from a western country (USA, Canada, Japan, Australia or western European country).

Second Page (Manuscript):

4.2. TITLE: Title should be short and informative and written in sentence case.

4.3. ABSTRACT: A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Abstract should not exceed 300 words.

4.4. KEYWORDS: Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts. Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

4.5. INTRODUCTION: State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

4.6. EXPERIMENTAL: Experimental methods should be described clearly and briefly. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

4.7. THEORY/CALCULATION: A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

4.8. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: This section may be separated into two parts. Unnecessary repetition should be avoided.

4.9. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Collate  acknowledgements  in  a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.). Acknowledgements should be as short as possible.

4.10. REFERENCES: References should be numbered sequentially in the order they are cited in the text. The numbers should be set in brackets, thus [2] or [3,4] or [3,4,5-9]. References are to be collected in numerical order at the end of the main text. Titles of journals must be abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts (Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index (CASSI) (http://cassi.cas.org/search.jsp) or (http://www.efm.leeds.ac.uk/~mark/ISIabbr/A_abrvjt.html).

4.11. GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT: Please provide, when submitting your article, a graphical abstract. This comprises the title, authors and affiliations, identical to the article itself, a summary of about 25 words, and a pictogram: one figure representative of the work described. Maximum final dimensions of the pictogram are 5 x 5 cm: bear in mind readability after reduction, especially if using one of the figures from the article itself. Graphical abstracts will be collated to provide a contents list for rapid scanning.

NOTES:

Appendices
If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on.

Nomenclature and units: Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). All nomenclature and notation should conform as closely as possible to the rules established by IUPAC. The only exception is the use of min, h, d and a as units for elapsed time, though never when combined algebraically with other units. If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalent in SI.

Artwork: Make sure you use uniform lettering and sizing of your original artwork. Save text in illustrations as "graphics" or enclose the font.  Only use the following fonts in your illustrations: Arial, Courier, Times, Symbol. Number the illustrations according to their sequence in the text. Use a logical naming convention for your artwork files. Provide captions to illustrations separately.  Produce images near to the desired size of the printed version. Submit each figure as a separate file.

Color artwork: Please make sure that artwork files are in an acceptable format (TIFF, JPG, EPS or MS Office files) and with the correct resolution. These figures will appear in color on the Web regardless of whether or not these illustrations are reproduced in color in the printed version.

Chemical structures and reaction: Chemical structures and reaction schemes should be drawn using an appropriate software package designed for this purpose. As a guideline, these should be drawn to a scale such that all the details and text are clearly legible when placed in the manuscript (text should be no smaller that 10 pt.). To facilitate editing we recommend the use of any of the software packages widely available for this purpose: MDL® Isis/Draw, ACD/ChemSketch®, CS ChemDraw®, ChemWindow®, etc. Free versions of some of these products are available for personal or academic use from the respective publishers. If another less common structure drawing software is used, authors should ensure the figures are saved in a file format compatible with of one of these products.

Tables: Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to below of the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.

References

Citation in text: Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list. Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either "Unpublished results" or "Personal communication" Citation of a reference as "in press" implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Reference style:

Reference to a journal publication: (Endnote - ACS style - no title).

Crystallographic Data: Prior to submitting your manuscript to the journal you must deposit the data of X-ray structure analyses in a crystallographic database so that referees can access the information electronically. The two databases, the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) and the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe (FIZ), have the same procedure for the deposition of data and both will be pleased to provide help.

You should send your data (preferably electronically) to the appropriate address below. In general, you will receive a depository number from the database two working days after electronic deposition. You should then quote the standard text, including the depository number, in your manuscript when it is submitted to the journal. This text will be included as a footnote in the final version of the paper. Before you return your revised manuscript to the journal Editor, please update your database entry if necessary.

CCDC Notes: the deposited data will not be archived to the CCDC until the paper has been published. If, after 18 months, the paper has not been published the CCDC will contact the depositor to determine what should be done with the data.

The preferred mode of deposition is by e-mail as a plain text ASCII file. Wherever possible the CIF format should be used but other formats will be accepted. Guidance for data deposition can be obtained from the CCDC website:

Article Processing Charges: European Journal of Chemistry is an Open Access journal. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. With Open Access system, it is guaranteed that an author´s work is distributed worldwide increasing the impact of their work, and consequently their work will be more cited and more exposed.

The scientific community and the general public can unlimitedly and immediately access all content published in European Journal of Chemistry for free as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that European Journal of Chemistry does not have any income from selling subscriptions to print or online versions of European Journal of Chemistry or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, European Journal of Chemistry needs to defray its Editorial and Processing costs by collecting article processing charges.

The article processing charges are paid by the author(s), the author(s)'s research budget, or their supporting institution upon acceptance of the paper for publication.

European Journal of Chemistry believes that science has to be available for all. Therefore, we have decided to apply low publication charges to support the author(s) and to help them spread their latest findings with the minimum cost.
