Manuscript Preparation

Types of Contributions:

Original Papers: Are full-length expositions of extensive and significant experimental or theoretical studies.

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 the journal.

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.

Research Article:  Research article will be published in English, 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 a headline such as Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References, Tables and Figure Captions.

 

Manuscript Format: Manuscripts submitted to the journal should be prepared in the Ms Word documents format and contain the following sections

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.

Graphical Abstract:You should see the file by the name "Graphical Abstract for Nanochemistry Res"

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 Vancouver style. In the reference list, journals [1], books [2] and edited multi-author books [3] should be cited in accordance with the following styles:

[2] Wang J. Analytical Electrochemistry, VCH, Publishers. Inc, New York. 1994.

[3] Kimura. K, Shono T, Cation binding by macrocycles. Inoue Y, Gokel GW., editor. New York: M. Dekker; 1990.

Tables: 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 in clear colored. Figures should be submitted either as original artwork 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 the manuscript.

Crystallographic structure: 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 at Online submission system:  http://nanochemres.org/contacts?_action=loginForm

Proofs: Authors will receive a proof, which they are requested to correct and return it as soon as possible.

Conflict of Interest

Objectivity and impartiality of the individuals involved in scholarly publication should not be harmed by professional, financial, commercial or personal rivalries; otherwise, a potential conflict of interest may arise. A conflict of interest often, but not exclusively, arises for an individual between two competing interests such as interests of public duty and private interests. Nanochemistry Research requires disclosure of all known or hidden sources of funding used by the authors in a direct relation to their research. A submitted manuscript cannot be published without a conflict of interest statement. If there are no conflicts of interest known to the authors, the authors should state “The authors declare that there are no conflicts of interest.”

It’s highly recommended to use the ICMJE Conflict of Interest form which authors can download it from http://www.icmje.org/conflicts-of-interest/ and send the completed form to us during submissions process.

Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements of contributions, but not direct involvement in the research, should be stated in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. Do not include them on the first page as a footnote or otherwise.
