Journal of Chemical Metrology

A scientific open access journal in the field of analytical chemistry and accreditation

Instruction for Authors

Manuscripts should be prepared in English using a word processor.

Review Articles are critically evaluated on the specific area in chemical metroloy, analytical chemistry and accreditaion. If you would like to contribute to the journal with a review article, the authors must initially contact to editorial office, as such articles are normally invited

Original Articles and Discussion Articles are manuscripts describing new in chemical measurements and also discussions on the modern analytical techniques, results, new applications to other areas, such as bioanalytical and pharmaceutical studies . In determining the suitability of submitted articles for publication, particular scrutiny will be placed on the degree of novelty and significance of the research and the extent to which it adds to existing knowledge in analytical chemistry. Discussion papers on the fundemantals of analytical chemistry and Metrology in Chemistry and Biology including educational facilites are welcome. These manuscripts should reflect completed investigations rather than fragmentary parts of a larger study. In order to reduce manuscript length, specific experimental details, and some spectra and/or figures should be made available as supplementary material from the corresponding author.

Authors are must use template (Template file for original article) for the preparation of manuscripts. The section order and topics should be determined by the authors for the discussion articles if it has no experimental data. Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: Title page; Abstract; Graphical abstract (in PAMS only), Keywords; Introduction, Materials and Methods, 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.

Short Report Articles are suitable for reporting the urgent results of the large study, or new application of known analytical methods. Small modifications and validation data of known methods should be prepared as short report. Brief discussion on the chemical metrology are welcome in short report form. In order to reduce manuscript length, specific experimental details, and some spectra and/or figures should be made available as supplementary material from the corresponding author.

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

2. Previous Studies 
4. Present Study

Special Issues, Letter to Editor and Book Reviews are collections of articles on the specific topics in areas related to aims and scope of journal publishes in the journal. Offers for the special topics must be applied to the editorial office.

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:

Plagiarism  Check and Ethics

 Any manuscript submitted, soon to be submitted or in press at any other journal will not be considered by Journal of Chemical Metrology (JCM), and it is authors responsibility to inform the Editor of Journal of Chemical Metrology if such event exists. If the submitted manuscript is a revised version of a previously rejected by JCM, 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 Journal of Chemical Metrology. Authors of all the manuscripts submitted to JCM automatically accept the guidelines given in the Ethical Guidelines for Publication 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 JCM publications are routinely screened by a software to check the originality of the submitted articles. It should be noted that JCM 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. Journal of Chemical Metrology has the right of removing any article published in Journal of Chemical Metrology, 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

Journal of Chemical Metrology is OPEN ACCESS journal. There isn't publication fee in the Journal for regular process.

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 Euro. If the authors would like to publish their accepted papers as fast track  they must pay 1000 Euro fee.

 Peer Review Policy

All published research articles in Journal of Chemical Metrology have undergone rigorous single blind peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by expert referees.
