SJPAC Instruction for Authors
Submit manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at:
email@example.com along with covering letter. A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author same day or within 48 hours. The authors may also suggest two to four reviewers for the manuscript (SJPAC may designate other reviewers). There is no page limit. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. Scholarly Journal of Physical and Applied Chemistry (ISSN 2276-8939) publishes high-quality solicited and unsolicited articles, in English, in all areas Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Interdisciplinary Areas, Chemical Biology, Environmental Chemistry, Materials Chemistry.
Terms of Submission
Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis) and are not currently under consideration by another journal. All enquiries concerning the publication of accepted papers should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scholarly Journal of Physical and Applied Chemistry (ISSN 2276-8939) will only accept manuscripts submitted as e-mail attachments.
All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within one weeks. The editorial board will re-review manuscripts that are accepted pending revision. It is the goal of the SJPAC to publish manuscripts within 4 weeks after submission
Style of Manuscripts
Manuscripts should be written in clear, concise and grammatically correct English (with 10 font size and Times New Roman font style) so that they are intelligible to the professional reader who is not a specialist in any particular field. Manuscripts that do not conform to these requirements and the following manuscript format may be returned to the author prior to review for correction. The entire manuscript, including references, should be typed single spaced on one side of the paper. All pages should be numbered consecutively in the bottom centre starting from the title page. The manuscript should be presented in the following order.
Title and Authorship Information
The title should be a brief phrase (capitalize first letter of each word in the title) describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the authors' full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and E-mail information. Present addresses of authors should appear as a footnote.
All manuscripts should not exceed 250-300 words and should describe the scope, hypothesis or rationale for the work and the main findings. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.
Key words (5-7 words) should be provided below the Abstract to assist with indexing of the article. These should not duplicate key words from the title.
This section should include sufficient background information; provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. The aims of the manuscript should be clearly stated. The introduction should not contain either findings or conclusions. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
Materials and Methods
This should be complete enough to provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be repeated by others. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Subheadings should be used. Methods in general use need not be described in detail.
Results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and figures; repetitive presentation of the same data in different forms should be avoided. The results should not contain material appropriate to the Discussion. It should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors' experiments. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature.
The discussion should consider the results in relation to any hypotheses advanced in the Introduction and place the study in the context of other work. Results and Discussion sections can be combined.
If an optional conclusion section is used, its content should not substantially duplicate the abstract.
The acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.
References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order.
Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.
In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses

Tables and Equations
Tables and equations should not be submitted in a format exceeding the A4 page size (in portrait form). All tables should be embedded within the manuscript, and must be captioned and numbered sequentially. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text.
Figures / Illustrations / Photographs
Graphics should be supplied as high resolution (at least 300-600 dp.i.) electronic files. Digital images supplied only as low-resolution print-outs cannot be used. Graphs, diagrams, chromatograms, photos, etc. should be prepared as clear, original positives, suitable for reproduction. All figures should be embedded within the manuscript, and must be captioned and numbered sequentially.
Proofs will be sent via e-mail as an Acrobat PDF file (e-mail attachment) and should be returned within 3 days of receipt. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage.
Fees and Charges
Authors are charged a $350 handling fee. Publication of an article in Scholarly Journal of Physical and Applied Chemistry (ISSN 2276-8939) is not contingent upon the author's ability to pay the charges. Neither is acceptance to pay the handling fee a guarantee that the paper will be accepted for publication. Authors may still request (in advance) that the editorial office waive some of the handling fee under special circumstances.
