Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports

A scientific open acces journal in the field of Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry

Instruction for Authors

Preparation of Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be prepared in English using a word processor.

Review Articles are critically evaluated on the specific area in Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry synthesis and their applications. If you would like to contribute to the journal with a review article, the authors must initially contact to Professor Turan Ozturk , as such articles are normally invited.

Original Articles are manuscripts describing new synthesis startegies and developements in Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry. The synthesis of nano materials, polymers and their properties and application reports are also welcome to journal. These manuscripts should reflect completed investigations rather than fragmentary parts of a larger study. In order to reduce manuscript length, specific experimental details, NMR and HRMS (please check for the sample) spectra should be made available as supplementary materialfrom the corresponding author for the novel compounds, at least one representative for each molecule group.

Authors are must use template (Template file for article) for the preparation of manuscripts. Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: Title page; Abstract; Graphical abstract (in PAMS system only), Keywords; Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, Acknowledgments; Appendixes (as appropriate); References; using a decimal system for subsections.  Novelty statments of  manuscript must be provided and authors

1. Introduction
2. Experimental 
3. Results and Discussion
4. Conclusion
Acknowledgements/Supporting Informations 
References.

Communications are suitable for reporting the urgent results of the large study, synthesis of limited amount of novel compounds with known methodology and any important biological activity/application reports. Manuscripts describing routine sytnhesis of limited amount of analogs without any biological assessment or application are generally not acceptable. Communications should be kept to a maximum of eight pages, including references. In order to reduce manuscript length, specific experimental details and NMR and HRMS (please check for the sample) spectra must be made available as supplementary material from the corresponding author for new compounds.

Authors are must use template (Template file for communications ) for the preparation of manuscripts.

1. Introduction
2. Background 
3. Experimental

4. Present Study 
5. Conclusion
Acknowledgements/Supporting Informations 
References

Special Issues and Book reviews are collections of articles on the specific topics in areas related to synthetic organic chemistry. Authors for the special topics must apply to review editor Professor Turan Ozturk.

As the manuscript languages is English, any author who is not fluent enough in English is encouraged to consult a fluent colleague or a paid editing service for the preperation of the manuscripts. Manuscripts having language deficiencies, i.e. grammar, fluency, etc., create heavy problems during the review process. Such manuscripts might be returned to the authors for correcting the language deficiencies.

Authors are encouraged to attach an authenticate report during the submission to make sure that there is no plagiarism problem. Manuscripts submitted to ACG publications are routinely screened by a software to check the originality of the submitted articles. It should be noted that ACG publications are committed to deterring plagiarism and self-plagiarism

Title of the manuscript should be as brief as possible and typed to the template file with affiliation and addresses of all the authors, including corresponding author with an asterisk. ORCID  of all of authors should be added as shown in template of manuscripts. The e mail address, phone and fax numbers of the corresponding author should be provided as a foot note on the title page. Abstracts of all kind of submissions should be prepared maximum 200 words.

Authors must adhere to SI unitsWhen using a word which is or is asserted to be a proprietary term or trade mark authors must use the symbol ® or TM or alternatively a footnote can be inserted using the wording below:


References must be given as:

Plagiarism  Check and Ethics

 Any manuscript submitted, soon to be submitted or in press at any other journal will not be considered by Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports, and it is authors responsibility to inform the Editor of Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports if such event exists. If the submitted manuscript is a revised version of a previously rejected by BMCR, the authors must indicate previous submission in their cover letter and explain the reason/changes that they made in the revised one.

The   Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Journals and Reviews  issued by the   European Association of Chemical and Molecular Sciences   are applied by Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports. Authors of all the manuscripts submitted to BMCR automatically accept the guidelines given in the Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Journals and Reviews .  

Authors are encouraged to attach an authenticate report during the submission to make sure that there is no plagiarism problem. Manuscripts submitted to BMCR publications are routinely screened by a software to check the originality of the submitted articles. It should be noted that BMCR publications are committed to deterring plagiarism and self-plagiarism

ACG Publications journals use iThenticate �  software to check the originality of submitted manuscripts for plagiarism.  If a duplication detected by the editorial office and reviewers, the manuscript will directly be rejected. If the authors use the same sentences of their or another authors previous work with citation without quotation mark, it will still be considered as self-plagiarism and plagiarism,respectively. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports has the right of removing any article published in BMCR, and banning the authors submitting their studies in future if any ethical violation is identified.

Copyright

It is a condition of publication that authors vest or license copyright in their articles, including abstracts, in ACG Publications. This enables us to ensure full copyright protection and to disseminate the article, and the Journal, to the widest possible readership in electronic formats as appropriate. Authors must accept the articles published in the journal for free in all around of world. To read and download of published papers is free for the scientific purposes.  

Supplementary Material

Supplementary materials could be sent together with manuscript submission such as spectra, video, Picture etc.

Publication Fee

Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports (BMCR) is an OPEN ACCESS journal, having a primary aim of allowing�the researchers to have free access to a broader scope of scientific articles. In this context, it provides the authors with affordable open access publishing opportunities across the world. The journal do not request any publicaiton fee for publications.

Proof Corrections Fee

The proof corrections must be done carefully by authors. When proof corrections returned to Journal further corrections are not allowed. If the authors request corrections or withdraw the published paper because of their personal fault they have to pay corrections fee as 1500 USD.If the authors would like to publish theirpapers as fast track they must pay 1000 USD fee additionally and should declare it during submission .

 Peer Review Policy

All published research articles in Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Reports have undergone rigorous single blind peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by expert referees.
