Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: title page; abstract; introduction; results and discussion, Conclusion; Methodology or Experiment; acknowledgements; Declaration of Interest statement; references; appendices (as appropriate).

Innovational Journal of Chemistry (IJChem) publishes the following manuscript types:

  • Normal articles (original articles)
  • Short communications
  • Reviews

Title Page:

A title page should be provided comprising the manuscript title plus the full names and affiliations of all authors involved in the preparation of the manuscript. One author should be clearly designated as the corresponding author and full contact information, including phone number and email address, provided for this person. Three to six key terms that are not in the title should also be included on the title page. The keywords will assist indexers in cross indexing your article.

Abstract:

All original articles and reviews should start with an abstract of 250 or fewer words, summarizing the central core of knowledge that is the focus of the paper. The abstract contain the main objective, finding, method and conclusion. For a review article, it should contain as follows: context, objective, methods (including data sources, study selection and data extraction), results and conclusion. It should be written in an informative style permitting its use, without revision, by abstracting services, give essential details of research findings without further reference to the text, and avoid generalizations and nonessential information.

Main Text :

Original articles

The body of the article should include the following sections: introduction; methods; results; discussion; conclusions.

Introduction:

This section should state the relevance and background to the study, and its rationale and purpose and objective of the research.

Methods:

This section should include only information that was available at the time the plan or protocol for the study was being written. You should describe your selection of the observational or experimental participants, identify the methods, apparatus and procedures in sufficient detail to allow others reseracher to reproduce the results, and describe essential statistical methods with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the reported results. Innovational Journal of Chemistry (IJChem) requires that studies involving humans, both volunteers and patients, or animals be approved by an institutional Ethical committee, in accordance with approved published guidelines by author country, prior to actually performing the research and publishing the data. Details including clinical trial registration number must be provided in the methods section if research includes studies conducted on human volunteers.

Result:

Present your results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and figures.

Discussion:

This should include implications of the findings and their limitations, with reference to all other relevant studies and the possibilities these suggest for future research.

Conclusion:

This must summarise the main paper. Ensure that extrapolations are reasonable and that conclusions are justified by the data presented, and indicate if the study design can be generalised to a broader study population.

Reviews:

The body of a review article should be a comprehensive, scholarly evidence-based review of the literature, accompanied by critical analysis and leading to reasonable conclusions. Wherever possible, use primary resources, avoiding “Data on File”, “Poster” or other unpublished references.

Acknowledgement:

Any acknowledgement authors wish to make should be included in a separate headed section at the end of the manuscript preceding any appendices, and before the references section. Please do not incorporate acknowledgement into notes or biographical notes. The Acknowledgement section details special thanks, personal assistance, and dedications. Contributions from individuals who do not qualify for authorship should also be acknowledged here.

Declaration of Interest:

Declarations of interest, however, refer to statements of financial support and/or statements of potential conflict of interest. Within this section also belongs disclosure of scientific writing assistance (use of an agency or agency/ freelance writer), grant support and numbers, and statements of employment, if applicable. All declarations of interest must be outlined under the subheading ‘Declaration of interest’. If authors have no declarations of interest to report, this must be explicitly stated. The suggested, but not mandatory, wording in such an instance is: The authors report no declarations of interest.

References:

References should be given in the Vancouver style. Citation in the text is by Arabic numbers in brackets in superscript after text: Example; During the past two decades, the frequency of invasive and systemic fungal infections has increased dramatically in the population with altered immunity (1), (2,3) etc. References should be arranged in a numbered list at the end of the manuscript following the style below:

Tables:

Tables should be used only when they can present information more efficiently than running text. Care should be taken to avoid any arrangement that unduly increases the depth of a table, and the column heads should be made as brief as possible, using abbreviations liberally. Lines of data should not be numbered nor run numbers given unless those numbers are needed for reference in the text. Columns should not contain only one or two entries, nor should the same entry be repeated numerous times consecutively.

Figures:
