CALL FOR PAPERS
of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IJPAC) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed
chemistry journal published by Global Research Publications. IJPAC
publishes the results of original scientific research in all fields of
chemistry science and focuses on new achievements in the pure and applied
chemistry. Only new, previously unpublished results given in concise form
will be accepted.
IJPAC is published as four issues
The journal is of
interest to researchers at both scientific and research institutes, as
well as the academic and research staff of universities.
categories of papers are open to submission: “Original papers”
present original work in full detail. "Communications”
are reports, which describe preliminary or complete results of
experimental or theoretical studies of exceptional significance and
“Reviews” present a
general survey of an outstanding subject in pure and applied chemistry.
Book reviews are prepared at the invitation of the Book Review
In all submission to
the journal, authors must address the question of how their proposed study
compares with previously reported studies. Reviews are normally written by
prior agreement of the editors. Potential authors are encouraged to
discuss the subject of a proposed review by the editorial members. Reviews
should provide the reader with expert opinion regarding the relative
merits of the various published approaches to the topic under review.
following topics have received special topics coverage in IJPAC:
Production of chemical compounds and their interaction with the life and
health sciences, material, environmental and earth sciences, and others.
detail, IJPAC covers: Nanomaterials and nanosystems, Theoretical chemistry
(quantum chemistry), Electrochemistry and biosensors, Relationships
between chemistry and environment, and chemicals and medicine, Soil and
plant chemistry, Organometallic compounds and complexes, Chemical
synthesis and properties, Chemicals and biological matters, Supramolecular
and Macromolecular chemistry, Polymer synthesis and properties, Chemistry
and industry, Chemistry and biomaterials, Advances in chemical analysis,
Instrumentation, Speciation, Bioavailability.
Chemists (all disciplines interested in chemistry) in academic
institutions, industry, independent laboratories and consulting firms.
accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been
published (except as an abstract, or as part of lecture, or academic
thesis), that is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and
that its submission for publication has been approved by all of the
authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. With their
submission, authors may preferably suggest three potential reviewers
together with their e-mail addresses.

Manuscripts by post mail are also accepted. Two
hard copies of manuscript together with electronic file in floppy disk
(word format) should be sent the following address:

encouraged to submit their articles online. Please log directly onto the
site (using the link below the chapter), and upload your manuscripts
following the instructions given on the screen.
Manuscripts must be
typewritten in English on white A4 standard paper, double-spaced
throughout, on one side of the page only in a legible font. Manuscripts
should be prepared carefully in accordance with the following points to
allow speedy publication.
Manuscripts must be in clear and grammatical English language.
Manuscripts must be accompanied by the Copyright Transfer Statement (the
form is regularly published in this journal). The copyright covers the
exclusive and unlimited rights to reproduce and distribute the article in
any form of reproduction (printing, electronic media or any other form);
it also covers translation rights for all languages and countries.
In the manuscript
preparation, the order below should be followed.
All manuscripts should be headed by a concise but informative title
followed by the names of the authors and the address of the laboratory
where the work was carried out. The author to whom correspondence should
be addressed must be indicated by an asterisk.
manuscript begin with an Abstract (100-250 words) which should
comprise a factual account of the contents of the paper, with emphasis on
new information. The abstract should be followed by 4-6
manuscript should be continued with introduction which should include the
aims of the study and results from previous notable studies.
experimental methods should be given after the introduction section.
Detailed experimental descriptions should be restricted. However,
sufficient detail should be given to allow any experienced worker to
implement the procedures described.
These may be treated together or separately. Unnecessary repetition should
These should be kept as short as possible.
Citations in the text should be by numbers in square brackets.
References should be given at the end of the paper, numbered in the order
of their appearance in the text. References
should be typed on a separate page. At least, titles of first four authors
should be written. Every reference listed must be cited in the text.
Reference numbers in the text are set in parenthesis on the line. The
following reference forms should be adopted.
1- Yaman M, Atici D,
Bakirdere S and Akdeniz I, Comparison of trace metal concentrations in
malign and benign human prostate, J. Med. Chem, 48(2), 2005, 630-634.

IUPAC rules must be used for designating chemical compounds.
Quantities and units must be designated using SI units whenever possible.
The metric system is to be used. Concentrations should be given
exclusively as mass or amount-of-substance concentrations (for example: ng
mL-1, ng g-1). The use of ppm, ppb, ppt, volume and
weight percentages etc. is to be avoided.
All figures (photographs, graphs or diagrams) and tables should be
numbered with Arabic numerals and have brief descriptive headings; they
should be typed on separate pages after references. Figure parts and
footnotes to tables should be identified by lower-case roman letters. The
same data should not be given in both tables and graphs.
Authors should make their proof corrections on a printout of the pdf file
supplied, checking that the text is complete and that all figures and
tables are included. Corrected proofs should be returned to the editor
without delay. The corresponding author of each article will receive 25
reprints after publication. Orders for offprints can be placed by
returning the order form with the corrected proofs.
errors of consequence are found in the published paper, the corrections
should be sent by the author to the Editor for publication in the
“Additions and Corrections” section.
