Author Guidelines

Manuscript Text Components 

Title Page

The title must reflect the purposes and findings of the work in a manner that assists in classification and indexing. Abbreviations and trade names should not be included in the titles. Succinct titles are encouraged. Titles should be followed by the names of the authors and by the addresses of all contributing laboratories. The name of the author to whom inquiries should be directed should be marked with an asterisk (*). The institution address together with the e-mail address of the corresponding author should be given, using an asterisk.


Abstracts should accompany all manuscripts and should explain concisely the objective, methods, and most important results and conclusions in the report. Any references should be cited in full, and footnotes and abbreviations should be avoided to prevent ambiguity in cases where only the abstract is published (e.g., Chemical Abstracts). Initial acceptance of manuscripts for consideration will be based primarily on review of the abstract. Abbreviations should be defined in the abstract and again in the manuscript body.


Authors must have 5-6 significant keywords (separated by semicolon) that aid the reader in literature retrieval included after the abstract.


Standard abbreviations should be used throughout the manuscript.


The purpose of the study and its relation to and extension of previous work in the field should be included. Detailed or lengthy descriptions of routine experimental or theoretical procedures should be avoided. Extensive literature reviews should also be excluded. The Introduction should state the rationale and hypothesis/objectives of the study. Authors must ensure that adequate citation are given to relevant work, making sure that prior contributions are acknowledged.

Experimental Section

Experimental descriptions should be as concise as possible. This section should provide a clear, unambiguous description of materials, methods, and equipment in sufficient detail to permit independent repetition of the work. Novel experimental procedures should be described in detail, while published procedures should be cited by reference number only. General reaction conditions should be given only once. 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. The journal will not publish work using unknown compounds (e.g., compound X). For animal and human studies, appropriate committee permissions must be listed, including the study number.


Text, tables, and figures can be used to describe the results as necessary. However, data should appear in only one format. Only the most significant and representative data should be included in the body of the manuscript. Extended or supplemental results that support the main findings of the paper should appear as Supporting Information, which is published on the Web.


Authors should use this section for their interpretation of the results and examination of their relation to and extension of the existing body of literature. Information given elsewhere, e.g., in the Results or Introduction, should not be repeated. Highly speculative suggestions should also be excluded.


This section is a single paragraph that summarizes the importance of findings to the field and future directions of the work. This section should be clearly different from the abstract.


Mention of technical assistance, advice from colleagues, gifts, etc. should be made. Financial support should also be described in detail in this section. Funding should be reported as: “Funding: This work was supported, in part, by Grant Name (No. 123456).


Article titles should be included in the reference list. They should be cited in the text. The accuracy of the references is the responsibility of the author. Because, in the Web edition, references are linked to various electronic sources, the accuracy of the references is critical. Reference formats are as follows.
