An international peer-reviewed journal Published by International Scientific Organization
Scope of the journal
Chemistry International (CI), is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes full-length original research articles, short communications, review articles, and mini-reviews on all aspects of chemistry. This journal aims to address a wide audience and provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of present and future perspectives in the field of chemistry. The outstanding studies in other disciplines where any chemical process is involved will also be considered for publication. The authors intending to submit their manuscripts should address scientific issues using a range of techniques, e.g. case studies, observational and theoretical analyses, discussion on emerging issues, and applications of established technologies to the questions of scientific concern with the aim of informing a broad range of the scientific community.
Instructions to author(s)
Cover letter/submission declaration
Submission of an article implies that the work submitted has neither been published nor submitted for publication to any other journal, except in the form of an abstract in conference or academic thesis or as an electronic reprint that it is not under consideration for publication in English or any other language, and will not be submitted elsewhere until decision is made by the editorial board of the chemistry international. All authors approve submission and the contents of the manuscript are original.
We accept submissions at email@example.com, all correspondences, including acknowledgment of manuscript number, notification of the Editor's decision (rejection/acceptance/requests for revision) will take place through e-mail. The authors are requested to send emails inquiring about the status of their manuscripts.
Submitted articles are initially evaluated by the editorial board members, if articles are within the scope of the journal and of interest to the scientific community then these are sent for review. This journal uses a single-blind review and based on comments, the editor is responsible for the final decision (rejection/revision/acceptance).
The manuscript must be divided into the following sections.
Title, Author(s), Abstract, Keywords, Capsule summary (1-2 lines), Introduction, Material and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments including funding statement (if any) and Conflict of Interest (if any).
