Author Guidelines

  1. Electronic copies of manuscripts should be uploaded to the Author’s Pages at or emailed directly to
    • Please visit the Journal’s website for downloading a Word or Latex template and follow closely the suggested layout for the text, figures, tables, and references. Manuscripts without the recommended structure and formatting for publication will be returned without a review.
    • The use of template is highly desired in order to avoid imposing any article processing charges (APCs), page
      fees, or article submission charges.
  2. In a brief letter attached to each manuscripts, authors must declare that their work is original and has not previously been published elsewhere. The editorial board requests an originality evaluation score to be below 10% according to CrossCheck/Ithenticate excluding quotes, references, and three-word expressions. If originality of a given manuscript is between 10-20% the authors are kindly requested to rewrite the overlapping sections. Nothing above 20% similarity will be accepted for publication and will not be sent out for review.
  3. For the purposes of correspondence, the authors are asked to give their current address, telephone, professional website (if applicable), and regularly accessed E-mail address.
  4. Authors are requested to adhere to the rules given below and follow the examples:
    • The layout of manuscripts should be A4 page size (21 cm × 29.7 cm) with double columns, single-spaced (approximately 45 characters per line, 55 lines per page), and numbered pages. The text of the papers should be concise, and not exceed twelve pages; even with Tables and Figures the manuscript should not exceed a total of twelve pages. These limits may be lifted for reviews and invited articles for themed issues.
    • The first page should give the title, the full name (no abbreviations please) of the author(s) in the sequence to be published, the name and address of the institution where the work was completed, and a brief summary of the article (maximum 15 lines). The title of the paper should not exceed 15 words. At least three keywords must be specified, but not more than seven.
    • The corresponding author or authors should be clearly marked.
    • The article should include the following sections: Introduction, Experimental or Theoretical Methods, Results and Analysis, Discussion, and Conclusion. A Conclusion section is mandatory with at least a paragraph presenting the main outcome(s) of the given study, not just repeating the abstract or summarizing the study.
    • Tables and Figures must be inserted into the text at their closest position to the first mention, flushed with the top margin as much as possible. Drawings must be of high contrast and have continuous curves. Please attach the source of the figure/scheme graphics if available in at least 300 dpi resolution. Characters and labels should be sufficiently large to allow for reproduction. All figures must contain decimal points and not commas.
    • Note that the electronic deposition of the published version of the manuscript will contain colored graphics; however, the printed version will only be reproduced in black and white unless otherwise requested for a fee.
    • The Tables and Figures should not exceed one A/4 size page, (maximum width of Figures: portrait 8 cm; landscape 16.5 cm). If diagrams are presented, only the explanation and dimensions of the abscissa, ordinate and marking numbers are required, further explanatory texts can be given in the caption. Please remove any excess white space around the figures.
    • Equations should always be stand-alone, i.e. occupy an extra line and marked with Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right-hand margin. Efforts avoiding equations in two columns are appreciated.
    • The summary of the symbols used must be included at the end of the manuscripts after the Conclusion section under the heading: “SYMBOLS”. Symbols and abbreviations that represent variables, constants, quantities, properties etc., must be defined in the text at their first occurrence.
    • Only SI (System International d'Unites) units are to be used. If data with non-SI units are reported, they should be in parentheses following the corresponding data in SI units.
  5. References should be numbered throughout the text and written in square brackets and not in superscript position. The references are also to be listed at the end of the paper. Abbreviations of journal titles should conform to international standards, as accepted by Chemical Abstracts. The style and punctuation of the references should conform to the ACS Style Guide. For a quick reference please consult the following examples:

    d) Patents: U.S. Pat. 3,425,442 (1984)

    e) Published lectures, conference proceedings: Hih, S.; Hhu, C.; Leech, W.J.: A Discrete Method to Heat Conduction Problems, Proc. 5th Int. Heat Transfer Conf., Tokyo, Japan, pp. 2.4, 1975

    f) Papers that are unpublished, but have been submitted to a journal may be cited with the journal’s name, followed by “submitted for publication” or “in press”. This will only be accepted if the author uploads the submitted manuscript as ‘editorial’ material. No reference to “unpublished work” or “personal communication” will be accepted.
