The Authors need to submit
> a ‘manuscript file’ (word file). Manuscript file should contain text and figure at appropriate positions (figures/graphs/chem structures/tables should not be placed in the end of file; all these should be at appropriate positions in text). Manuscript file should preferably be in journal article template.
> The supplementary data files (if any) should be submitted as a separate file.
> A list of suggested reviewers (MS-excel file) in the format (provided below) need to be provided.
Authors may provide a cover letter indicating rational of their work. Cover letter should be provided on the first step of submission in “Comments for Editor’ box.
Authors need to submit a graphical abstract highlighting the contents of manuscript. The guidelines for graphical abstract preparation and submission are available on this link. The graphical abstract should be submitted in image format separately and also be included in the main manuscript file.
Manuscript should include Title, Author (s), Affiliation (complete name of institutions), Abstract, 5 Keywords, (other sections like Introduction, Results and discussion, conclusion, experimental procedures in the main body text of manuscript could be used for full paper article), acknowledgment and references in the listed order. Short communications need not to be arranged in different sections.
Bibliography: Authors may use the ScienceIn journals references format (given below) OR any other format for citations/references (sequential numbered) that is used in any of international Chemistry journals (ACS journals, RSC Journals, Thieme, Wiley etc.). The ScienceIn journals style have citations in sequential superscript number place after any punctuation such as for articles,1 theses,2 books,3,4 and patents,5 and references should be formatted as shown
1. R. Ping, M. Laura, P.S. Mario. Title of the journal article should be included here. Int. Lett.Org. Chem. 1996, 61, 4439–4449.
2. B.K. Sharma. Ph.D. Dissertation, Thesis Title, Cornell University, 1995.
3. R. Hussain, D. Shinkoi. Title of book like Synthesis and application of ionic liquid, John Wiley & Sons: New York, 2010.
4. R.S. Buchanod, D.K. Reddy. In Selective Organic Transformations; T.R. Thyagarajan, Ed.; Integrated science: New York, 2002; Vol. 2, pp 1–95.
5. G.L. Loyale, U.S. Patent 5 934 456, 1998; Chem. Abstr. 1998, 65, 2870.
Citation Manager style files: Authors are highly encouraged to use the citation manager programs for citing and formatting the references. Authors may use Mendelay, Zotero, Paper 2 or Endnote program. If you are using any of these citation manager program for Bibliography (References and Notes), then you can download citation style file for journal (common for all ScienceIn journals):
Mendelay, Zotero, Paper 2 style file: ScienceIn Journals CSL style file
Authors can directly add the styles to Zotero and Mendeley, follow the below steps:
Zotero: Open Zotero desktop > Edit (top menu)> Preferences > Cite (menu in new opened small window) > Get additional styles.. (click this link below the list of styles) > in new opened window – search the term ‘Integrated Science’ in search box and then click on ‘Integrated Science Publishing Journals’ link > style file will download > Open the file with Zotero desktop and use (this style is common for all ScienceIn Journals).
Mendeley: Open Mendeley desktop > View (top menu) > Citation Styles > More styles.. > go to tab ‘Get more styles’ (in new opened window) > search for the term ‘Integrated Science’ in search box and then click on ‘install’ adjacent to ‘Integrated Science Publishing Journals’ list > style file will be installed > then click on ‘Use this style’ from the installed styles tab and use (this style is common for all ScienceIn Journals).
Endnote style file: ScienceIn Journals Endnote style file
(click and download the endnote style file from google drive … and either copy the file to Endnote style folder (go to C:>Program files>Endnote > Style folder > paste the file in this folder (it will listed in style when you open the Endnote program) or you can directly Open the downloaded style file in EndNote program and use).
Also the user can check the respective program user guide (online link on Zotero, Mendeley or Endnote) regarding information on how to use the style file.

For review purpose, author can submit the manuscript as outlined above. However, Authors are advised to prepare their manuscript according to journal article template (provided below) as it progress towards acceptance. On acceptance of manuscript, authors must need to supply their manuscript in Article template (if they have not already submitted in template). If you face difficulty in preparing manuscript according to template, then you can check the video instructions provided on https://pubs.thesciencein.org/manuscript-conversion-in-journal-article-template-instructions/
On acceptance of manuscript, Authors are required to submit revised manuscript in journal articles template (If authors wish, they are free to submit their manuscript in journal article template while submitting first time).
Authors can use any one of these above templates for preparation of their manuscript. Download the template, double click the file to open and then prepare your article and save it with your own name.
Instructions for conversion of manuscript in journal article template is provided on https://pubs.thesciencein.org/manuscript-conversion-in-journal-article-template-instructions/ please check the video on the link for correctly formatting your manuscript.
Login and submit the manuscript online (submission by email are not accepted). Only online submissions are accepted now.
Authors are advised to contact Support, JMC (email: pubs @ thesciencein.org ) if there is any problem in registration or submission.
Declaration of Conflict of Interest
Authors should mention any conflict of interest in the work submitted to Journal of Molecular Chemistry. The statement about conflict of interest may be mentioned in the ‘Letter to editor’ or placed in the manuscript after acknowledgement section.
Ethical Uses Declaration:
If the manuscript report the experimentation on animals (including clinical trials on human beings), then declaration about ethical way handling of animals and about keeping the complete privacy of human identity (in case of clinical trials) must be mentioned in the manuscript.
Helsinki Declaration (contents from NIH-NLM): When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.
