Author Guidelines

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts for Original Research Papers submitted to the EJAC should be divided into the following sections:

1) Title

~ The title should be succinct and no longer than ten words. The title should capture important keywords.

2) Author's Names and Affiliations

~ Please clearly indicate the given first name(s) and surname(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled.

~ The names and addresses of the institution(s) where the work was performed should be listed immediately below the author names.

~ The name of the corresponding author(s) should be marked with an asterisk (*) and provide his or her e-mail address on this page 

~ Author affiliations should include complete information, including institution, department, city and country.

3) Abstract

~The abstract should be a clear, concise, one-paragraph synopsis (100–300 words) and placed directly after the title and author information. It should indicate the subject and scope of the review, listing the major topics covered, as well as the overall objectives. References should not be cited in the abstract.

4) Keywords

~ 3 to 6 keywords describing the main topics of the paper should provide below the abstract for indexing purpose.

5) Graphical abstract

~ The graphical abstract is mandatory for this journal. It should summarize the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership online. Authors must provide images that clearly represent the work described in the article. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the online submission system. Image size: please provide an image with a minimum of 531 × 1328 pixels (h × w) or proportionally more. The image should be readable at a size of 5 × 13 cm.

~ Preferred file types: TIFF, JPEG, PDF or MS Office files.

6) Introduction

~ The Introduction, usually one or two manuscript pages, should state precisely the purpose and goals of the review and its scope and limitations, as well as the years of literature covered. Historical material and references to earlier pertinent reviews, as well as a limited amount of material of personal or anecdotal nature, may be included. Date and location of the research carried out throughout the study must be mentioned at the end of this section.

 7) Materials and methods

~ The Materials and Methods section should provide enough information to permit repetition of the experimental work. It should include clear descriptions and explanations of sampling procedures, experimental design, and essential sample characteristics and descriptive statistics, hypothesis tested, exact references to literature describing the tests used in the manuscript, number of data involved in statistical tests, etc. Authors must emphasize any unexpected, new, and/ or significant hazards or risks associated with the reported work. This information should be in the experimental details section of the full article or communication.

~ This section should describe the experimental methods used in the work in sufficient detail. Reported methods or known compounds should be indicated by a reference, but new and modified protocols or compounds should be described in detail.

 8) Results and Discussion

~ The results and discussion section should contain a description of the experimental results that substantiates the conclusions of the work. A comprehensible discussion which links the results to related investigations and to existing knowledge in the relevant field should follow.

* Tables

Do not submit tables and graphs as photograph. Tables should be set within the text. Do not use internal horizontal and vertical rules. Tables should be set within the text and should have a clear and rational structure along with consecutive numerical order. All tables should be numbered (1, 2, 3, etc.). Give enough information in subtitles so that each table is understandable without reference to the text. For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table. Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption. Tables should be with the captions placed above in limited numbers.

Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.

* Figures

Figures/ illustrations should be in high quality art work, within 200-300 dpi and provided in the text. Ensure that figures are clear, labeled, and of a size that can be reproduced legibly in the journal. Figures should be set within the text. Following remarks should be applied to the figures:

- Each Figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file.

- Figure captions begin with the term Fig. Figures should be with the captions placed below in limited numbers.

- No punctuation is to be placed at the end of the caption.

- Identify all elements found in the figure in the figure caption; and use boxes, circles, etc., as coordinate points in graphs.

- Identify previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.

9) Conclusion

~ For articles and reviews, a conclusion that briefly summarizes the principal conclusions of the work is necessary. It is also different from the abstract. This section should highlight the major, firm discoveries, and state what the added value of the main finding is, without literature references.

10) Funding

~ Authors should mention the company, institution or organization that paid for the research.

11) Authors' contributions

~ All authors should write their part in designing the idea, doing, analyzing and writing the article.

12) Conflict of interest

~ All authors have to declare their conflict of interest.

13) Acknowledgments

~ The Acknowledgments should be placed in a separate paragraph after the Experimental section. Technical assistance, material support, and other help or advice may be acknowledged briefly in this section.

14) Supporting Information (Optional: if any)

~ Supporting information is an optional section. Supporting information is not essential in the printed paper but may be useful to reviewers and readers, may be submitted with the manuscript (see for example Compound characterization, Crystallographic data, and Computational results). Supporting Information should be included at the end of the paper (before the Acknowledgements section).

15) References

~ References contain article titles.
~ References are mentioned consecutively in order of appearance in the text.
~ All references referred to in the text are included in the list of references.
~ The references cited are current and up-to-date.
~ All references are formatted according to the style of the journal (Harvard style).
