Types of Contributions:
Original papers: Are full-length
expositions of extensive and significant experimental or theoretical
Short communications: Must
be complete, self-contained papers, and not preliminary reports. In
style and presentation they should conform to that laid down for
manuscripts but length should not exceed three (two) printed pages in
Reviews: Will usually be
written at the invitation of Editors. Unsolicited reviews will be
welcome but authors wishing to submit a review are requested to consult
Editors prior to commencement.
Papers will be published in English. Three copies of the manuscript
should be submitted, in double spaced typing on pages of uniform size
with a wide margin on the left. The authors are urged to arrange the
subject matter clearly under headline such as Introduction,
Experimental, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements,
References, Tables and Figure Captions.
Title: Papers should be headed by a concise and
informative title. This should be followed by the name(s) and complete
address of the author(s). The author(s) to whom correspondence should be
addressed may be indicated with an asterisk.
Abstract: An abstract of 150-250 words should be included
at the beginning of a paper. The abstract should comprise a brief and
factual account of the contents and conclusions of the paper as well as
an indication of any new information presented and its relevance.
Keywords: A maximum of four to six keywords should be
indicated below the abstract to describe the content of the manuscript.
Introduction: A full-length paper should have a short
introduction to state the reasons for the work, with enough reference to
previous works on the subject.
Experimental: This should be presented as a clear and
detailed description of experimental procedures and analytical
conditions to enable readers to carry out similar work. Supply sample
preparation procedures, name, model and configuration details of
equipment used, and data handing methods.
Results and Discussion: The original and important
findings should be stated.
References: References should be numbered consecutively
(numerals in square brackets) throughout the text and collected together
in a reference list at the end of the paper. In the reference list,
journals , books  and edited multi-author books  should be
cited in accordance with the following styles:
 H. Keypour, S.
Salehzadeh, R.G. Pritchard, R.V. Parish, Inorg. Chem. 39 (2000)
 J. Wang, Analytical Electrochemistry, VCH, New York, 1994.
 K. Kimura, T. Shono, in: Y. Inoue, G.W. Gokel (Eds.), Cation
Binding by Macrocycles, Marcel Dekker, New York, 1990.
Tables should be typed in double spacing on separate sheets and provided
a suitable heading. Tables should be clearly referred in the text by
using Arabic numerals. Each table should have a title that makes the
general meaning understandable without reference to the text.
Figures: Figures should be submitted either as original
art work or as high-quality reproductions. Figures should be numbered
consecutively, the captions should be typed on a separate sheet and
grouped with the Figures at the end of manuscript.
Crystallographic structure determinations should include the following
items: crystal data, positional parameters (partial), selected bond
lengths and bond angles, and a drawing of the crystal or molecular
structure with numbering.
Nomenclature, units and symbols: Should conform to the IUPAC convention.
Chemical nomenclature should follow the IUPAC rules. All abbreviations
should be preceded the first time they appear by the full name except
for the SI symbols for units that are to be used without explanation.
Text Preparation: The final text should be submitted by
e-mail as a WORD processor (*.doc file). Figures should be given in JPG
format in high resolution (at least 300 dpi) or Excel files.
Authors will receive proof, which they are requested to correct and
return as soon as possible.
Authors receive two issues free of charge. Additional issues are
available at a nominal fee and should be ordered at the time of
submission of the final version of the accepted manuscript. PDF files of
published papers are available for downloading free of charge from the
home page of journal.
