Guideline for writing Articles

It is mandatory for the authors to write and prepare their manuscripts according to the instructions and specifications listed below. The length and effectiveness of the peer review process will largely depend upon the care used by authors in preparing their manuscripts. Therefore, contributors are strongly encouraged to read these instructions carefully before preparing a manuscript for submission and to check the manuscript for conformance before submitting it for publication.

Manuscripts which are submitted to Asian Journal of Chemistry should

  • contain original work (submit a copyright-notice form stating the article has not been communicated to any other journal for publication).
  • follows aims and scope of the journal
  • are clearly and correctly
    written in English
    (should be clear, simple and cater to chemistry research area)
  • are delivered in electronic format

4. Text

  • introduction: subject, scope of the subject, goals of your paper and finally the
    organization of your paper are to be mentioned
  • main text: all important elements of your scientific message are to be mentioned
  • conclusion: summary of the paper

Experimental Part - should be written in sufficient detail to enable others to repeat the authors’ work. Chemical compounds should be named according to the systematic rules of IUPAC or Chemical Abstracts. Common trivial names that are accepted by IUPAC can also be used. Units and dimensions should be expressed according to the metric system and SI units

Results and Discussion - may be combined or kept separate and may be further divided into subsections. This section should not contain technical details. Abbreviations and acronyms should be used sparingly and consistently. Where they first appear in the text, they should be defined; authors may also explain large numbers of abbreviations and acronyms after the conclusion part.

Computational Part - in theoretical papers, technical details such as the computational methods, and models applied or newly developed models should be presented in an appropriately named section. Sufficient detail should be provided to enable readers to reproduce the calculations.

Acknowledgements - Information concerning research grant support and the
assistance of colleagues or similar notes of appreciation should appear in an Acknowledgements

Authors should use tables only to achieve concise presentation, or where the information cannot be given satisfactorily in other ways. Tables should be numbered and referred to in the text by number. Each table should have an explanatory caption which should be as concise as possible.

Authors may use line diagrams and photographs to illustrate these from their text. The figures should be clear, easy to read and of good quality. Styles and fonts should match those in the main body of the article. Lettering and lines should be of uniform density and the lines unbroken. Axis labels should be in bold face. Units
should be placed next to variables in parentheses. All figures must be mentioned in the text in consecutive order and be numbered.

These are sequences of reactions. They should have brief titles describing their contents. Schemes should be numbered.

Authors can attach files in formats like BMP, GIF, JPEG formats.
