About the Journal
The Journal of Molecular Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal that provides a novel forum for publication of quality original research from fundamental to applied chemistry. The journal publishes research in chemistry at molecular level to applications in biological or physical/materials field. It covers the Organic Chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, catalysis, new methodologies, natural product synthesis, new reaction pathways, peptide synthesis, small molecule synthesis, Chemistry research, chemical technology and other allied areas covering advances in chemistry and exploration of molecular applications in biology, medicine, polymer, materials and environment. The journal accepts research articles from the community of chemistry researchers.
The Journal of Molecular Chemistry is a top-tier venue for discoveries in the field of chemistry and at the interface of chemistry and biology, chemistry and materials sciences. The JMC:
- would provide all contents on online site for wide circulation and get contents indexed in different scientific content databases.
- provides free access to all of its research articles for one or more months/years for each issue,
- would deposit published research articles in different databases and would satisfy the NIH Public Access Policy guidlines.
- is an ideal home for authors seeking the broadest audience for their most important work.
The journal is led by Editors and supported by Editorial Advisory Board of peer scientists from various reputed universities, research institutes and other reputed Chemistry Research Institutes whose depth and experience ensure fair and competent peer review.
Sending your work to the JMC
The journal considers research submissions in several categories. The JMC receives submissions only through its website; submissions by mail or e-mail will be returned.
Do you have a question about a manuscript you've already submitted?
- When a manuscript is received and confirmed by the JMC, an acknowledgment is sent via e-mail to the corresponding/submitting author. For any communication with us, please reference the tracking number assigned by the JMC noted in the acknowledgment.
- In order to avoid confusion regarding correspondence, inquiries, and decisions, the JMC will typically communicate only with those who are designated as corresponding authors during the submission process, however, most of important decision emails are sent to all listed authors of an online submission.
Manuscript submitted and processed for reviewing can't be withdrawn. If authors donot respond to emails for the reviewed and accepted manuscript, then the article will be published by the journal in as such format with a note 'withdrawn by authors' by no response.
Unique IDs for Articles: The journal is currently using URN number for the published articles (however, this is currently meant for internal use by journal). The journal will process the assigning of DOI (Digital Object Indentifier) to articles (including previously published ones) once the journal is indexed in Web of Science (Clarivate) as it help in providing the correct citations records for the published articles.
Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement
The Journal ‘Journal of Molecular Chemistry’ and its Publisher ‘ScienceIn’ follows the best practices in evaluation of contents, processing of manuscripts and publishing thereof. The Journal and Publisher essentially follows the code of conduct defined by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) for Journal Editors (Code of Conduct and Best Practices Guidelines for Journal Editors listed in COPE guidelines and Publisher (the Code of Conduct Journal Publishers listed in COPE page COPE site
Further, the journal publishes medicinal chemistry/biomedical reports, so the journal adheres and follows the guidelines defined for publication in medical journals by International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) in its document ‘Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals’ provided on link http://www.icmje.org/recommendations and World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) on its webpage http://www.wame.org/
The Authors, Reviewers and Editors need to adhere and follow the code of conduct on ethical practices defined at above mentioned links in the respective roles.
The manuscript processing involves following stages
In addition, general instructions and help pages on ‘ScienceIn’ for Authors, Reviewers and Editors should be referred for brief general conduct
Each authors who submit (and willing to publish in the journal) the manuscript, should read the ethical guidelines for submission and publication of work in scientific and medical journal (listed on above links). Particularly, manuscript must be plagiarism free. Any Animal study reported should have been performed with approval of respective institutional ethical committee and statement thereof should be included in manuscript.
Author Guidelines for manuscript preparation and submission details are provided under Author Guidelines (See submission link).
The authors should refer the publishing ethics or 'Code of conduct' and 'conflict on interest' guidelines on the link: https://pubs.thesciencein.org/authors-code-of-conduct/
The journal uses ‘Open Review’ of the manuscripts, the reviewers must maintain the confidentiality during reviewing and post review of manuscript. The manuscript work should be evaluated in respective field of expertise and detailed feedback and recommendation should be provided to editors. The general code of conduct defined in links below should be referred and followed while reviewing and providing feedback.
The ethics guidelines/code of conduct details for reviewers can be referred at https://pubs.thesciencein.org/reviewers-code-of-conduct/
All the editors should handle the assigned manuscripts by observing fair processing of submissions, editorial independence, confidentiality, and rational decision making within stipulated time framework with the feedback obtained from independent reviewer/experts in the field of work covered in respective manuscript. A detailed code of conduct mentioned in COPE reference documents and ScienceIn page https://pubs.thesciencein.org/editors-code-of-conduct/ should be adhered to.
The Publisher ‘ScienceIn’ handles the unethical publishing cases. In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, the retraction of the affected work. The publisher, together with the editors, shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
Access to journal content: The publisher is committed to the permanent availability and preservation of scholarly research. The online and digital contents are preserved by the Publisher by maintaining own digital archive and would also ensure accessibility by partnering with other digital archiving organizations. Most of the journal contents are archived in the Print form as well.
