Chemistry and Chemical Sciences

Journal publishes research advances in chemistry, chemical sciences and all related field research advances.

In Chemistry related articles: The earlier reported chemical synthesis procedures that are reproduced by students as part of their research can also be published, however, all analytical data (1H, 13C NMR, IR, Mass, TLC images) must be submitted along all critical conditions of reaction procedures adopted. This is mainly to cover the proper procedure adopted for synthesis of any compounds in high yield (all experimental details need to included).

 

Mini-reviews of project dissertations: Student can now publish the review of their project dissertations that they do as requirement of their degree. The review should include all important results and details of the project done. Full dissertations will not be considered.

Publishers

The Publisher ‘Integrated Science’ 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.
