General requirements and list of necessary documents

Manuscripts of the articles should be addressed to by e-mail:

The authors provide the following materials:

  • the text of the manuscript in *.docx (*.doc) format;
  • cover letter with the information regarding the CONFLICT OF INTEREST OR LACK thereof and THREE PROPOSED REVIEWERS;
  • information about the authors.

The text of the manuscript should correspond to the journal’s scope and be written in competent English in a clear and concise manner. Articles written in incorrect English and those that do not correspond to the level and/or scope of the journal will be rejected automatically without consideration. Authors are solely responsible for the content of their published materials. The Ukrainian version of the article is desirable. Authors should make sure that the issues of publication ethics, manuscript structure, figure format, and references are properly addressed.

A cover letter in any form is attached to the submitted publication. The responsible author must provide this letter on behalf of all authors of the manuscript with a statement that the article has not been published before and is not being considered for publication in any other journals, and is not a revision of previously published articles. In addition, authors should emphasize any unexpected, novel and/or significant hazards or risks associated with the work reported. Any CONFLICTS OF INTEREST or lack thereof should also be noted. THREE POSSIBLE REVIEWERS (name, e-mail, place of work) should be proposed. Reviewers should not be co-authors of any articles of the authors and should not work with them in the same organization. The editors reserve the right to make the final selection of reviewers.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHORS should include the following: first name, last name, e-mail, Scopus Author ID (if any), h-index (if any), and keywords describing the areas of scientific interest. Please also indicate your consent to be the reviewer of the journal's articles.

After a preliminary evaluation by the Editorial Board and acceptance of the manuscript as corresponding to the journal's scope, the article is registered, and the registration number is transferred to the authors. The manuscript is considered accepted for review.


Preparation of Manuscript

Authors are strongly encouraged to use the Microsoft Word template to prepare their manuscript (template (.docx)).

Manuscripts have to be submitted in MS Word format, font – Times New Roman, size 10.5, 1.1 space interval. All pages must be numbered, starting from the title page. The manuscript length should not be less than 8 pages. Figures, schemes, equations and tables must be inserted into the main body. The following margins should be used: 18 mm on the left, 22 mm on the right, 20 mm on top, 29 mm below.

Manuscript Text Components should be assembled in the following sequence: Title, Authors, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements (if necessary), References. Abbreviations and uncommon symbols should be explained at the first mention. List of abbreviations is possible.

Title and authors:

  • Title of the article should be typed in capital letters (size 14) and be concise and informative; avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
  • Full first and family names of all coauthors; where the name may be ambiguous (e.g. a double name), please indicate this clearly.
  • Authors’ affiliation addresses; provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name
  • e-mail of the coauthor to whom the correspondence is to be sent

Abstract should be concise and factual, of not more than 50 words. It should briefly reflect main aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts. The obtained results do not need to be specified in the abstract, this should be indicated in the Conclusions.

Keywords (not more than 5-6) should represent content of the whole article and be characteristic of the terminology used within the particular field of study. Avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, “and”, “of”’). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.

Introduction should be brief and clear and needs to include relevant references. The purpose of the research is highlighted at the end of the introduction.

All materials and methods by which the results were obtained should be described in the Experimental or basic theory part. Subsections should be numbered 2.1. (then 2.1.1., 2.1.2…), 2.2. may be used.

Results and Discussion. Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results. Also here subheadings may be used. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. Please move any detailed description of equations or methods to the experimental section (theoretical part).

Conclusions should emphasize the main achievements of this work, underline their significance and give examples of their possible application.

Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be brief and placed in a separate paragraph after the text.
A list of abbreviations should be included if applicable.


The accuracy of the references is critical and is the responsibility of the authors. Authors should refrain from using Wikipedia as a source.

Reference numbers should be typed as unparenthesized superscripts in the text but should be enclosed in parentheses in the reference list. References should be typed in numerical order at the end of the text. References should be individually numbered with only one reference per citation.

Authors should follow the ACS style for reference format. The titles should be included in title case, and ending page numbers should be included. References with more than 10 authors should list the first 10 authors followed by “et al.” ISO4 abbreviated titles for journals names should be used.

No references to unpublished results are allowed, but citation of manuscripts that have been submitted or accepted for publication and have not yet appeared is acceptable. References to materials that are “in press” should include the DOI when available.

Journals’ and books’ titles in the original languages must be typed in Latin letters without translation into English.

Review Procedure

Each paper is subject to a review. By submitting a manuscript to the Editorial Board, authors agree to the review process. All submitted manuscripts are checked to determine whether they fit the scope of the journal, follow the ethical policies and are properly prepared.

Manuscripts with insufficient originality or lack of significant message, as well as if they are not prepared as per journals instructions will be rejected or returned to the authors for revision and resubmission.

After a preliminary assessment and acceptance of the subject of the paper as compliant with the profile of the journal, the paper is registered and the register number is handed over to the authors.

The manuscripts which are found suitable for publication in Chemistry & Chemical Technology are sent for single-blind review (authors’ identities are known to reviewers). The comments and suggestions received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.

Based on the comments and advice of reviewers the Editorial Board takes a decision to accept, reject or forward the manuscript to alternative reviewer.

Once accepted, the manuscript will undergo professional copy-editing, English editing, proofreading by the authors, final corrections, pagination and publication.

If plagiarism is detected during the peer review process, the manuscript may be rejected. If plagiarism is detected after publication, the journal may publish a correction or retract the paper.
  • Author list
    During the submission process, the Authors are required to obtain the consent of all their coauthors prior to submitting a manuscript. The submitting author accepts the responsibility of notifying all coauthors that the manuscript is being submitted. If any change in authorship is necessary after a manuscript has been submitted, the Corresponding Author must e-mail a signed letter to the Editor-in-Chief confirming that all of the original coauthors have been notified and have agreed to the change. If the change involves the removal of a coauthor’s name, the Corresponding Author must, in addition, arrange for the coauthor involved to e-mail a separate signed letter to the Editor-in-Chief consenting to the change. No changes in the author list will be permitted after a manuscript has been accepted.
  • Intellectual property
    Authors are responsible for ensuring that all patent activities and intellectual property issues are satisfactorily resolved prior to publication. Acceptance and publication will not be delayed for pending or unresolved issues of this nature. All articles published in the journal belong to the authors of the articles and are protected in accordance with the laws of Ukraine.

Ethical obligations of authors

  • An author’s central obligation is to accurately present their research findings and include an objective discussion of the significance of their findings. Data and methods used in the research need to be presented in sufficient detail in the paper, so that other researchers can replicate the work.
  • Authors submitting their manuscripts to the Chemistry&Chemical Technology journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.
  • The co-authors of a paper should be all those persons who have made significant scientific contributions to the work reported and who share responsibility and accountability for the results. Authors should appropriately recognize the contributions of technical staff and data professionals. Other contributions should be indicated in an “Acknowledgments” section
  • Simultaneous submission of manuscripts to more than one journal is not tolerated. Republishing content that is not novel is not tolerated (for example, an English translation of a paper that is already published in another language will not be accepted).
  • The manuscript should not contain any information that has already been published. If it includes already published figures or images, it is necessary to obtain permission from the copyright holder.
  • Authors should indicate the publications (citations), the data of which were used during the research and writing of the scientific article.
  • If errors and inaccuracies are found by the authors after publication of their paper, they need to be promptly communicated to the editors of this journal so that appropriate actions can be taken. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

Ethical obligations of reviewers

  • A reviewer (or referee) should judge objectively the quality of the manuscript, including the experimental and theoretical data, the interpretations and exposition, with due regard to the maintenance of high scientific and literary standards. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable.
  • A reviewer should respect the intellectual independence of the authors.
  • A chosen reviewer who feels inadequately qualified to judge the research reported in a manuscript should return it promptly to the editor.
  • A reviewer should not evaluate a manuscript authored or co-authored by a person with whom the reviewer has a personal or professional connection if the relationship would bias judgment of the manuscript.
  • Confidentiality and peer reviewer anonymity are expectations throughout the editorial review process in order to allow for candid discussion and evaluation regarding submitted scientific content.
  • A reviewer should treat both the submitted manuscript and data as received from the journal, and his/her referee report and related correspondence as confidential documents.
  • Reviewers may disclose publicly that they have served as an invited reviewer for Chemistry&Chemical Technology journal. However, under no circumstances should the reviewer identify himself/herself as the reviewer of a specific manuscript.
  • Unpublished information, arguments, or interpretations disclosed in a submitted manuscript should not be used in a reviewer’s own research except with the consent of the author.
  • Reviewers should explain and support their judgments adequately so that editors and authors may understand the basis of their comments.
  • A reviewer should call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity between the manuscript under consideration and any published paper or any manuscript submitted concurrently to another journal.

Ethical obligations of editors

  • An editor should consider all manuscripts offered for publication, judging each on its merits without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author(s).
  • An editor should consider manuscripts submitted for publication with all reasonable speed.
  • Manuscripts may be rejected without external review if considered by the editors to be inappropriate for the journal. Such rejections may be based on the failure of the manuscript to fit the scope of the journal, to be of current or sufficiently broad interest, to provide adequate depth of content, to be written in acceptable English, or other reasons.
  • The editor-in-chief of the journal is responsible for deciding which of the submitted articles will be accepted for publication and which will be rejected. At the same time, he is guided by the journal’s policy and adheres to the legal framework, preventing copyright infringement and plagiarism.
  • An editor should not disclose any information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than those from whom professional advice is sought.
  • An editor should respect the intellectual independence of authors.
  • Unpublished information, arguments, or interpretations disclosed in a submitted manuscript should not be used in an editor’s own research except with the consent of the author.
  • An author may request that the editor not use certain reviewers in consideration of a manuscript. However, the editor may decide to use one or more of these reviewers, if the editor feels their opinions are important in the fair consideration of a manuscript.
  • The editor, together with the publisher, should not leave unanswered claims concerning the considered manuscripts or published materials, as well as in the event of a conflict situation to take all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.
