Instructions to the Authors

The Journal of Crystallization Physics and Chemistry (J. Cryst. Phys. Chem., JCPC) is a multidisciplinary peer- reviewed journal consolidating crystallization research activities in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine into a single, and unique reference source.

JCPC provides the means for scientists, engineers, medical experts and technocrats to publish the results of original scientific research in all fields of science and technology and focuses on new achievements in the field of crystallization science and technology. Only new, previously unpublished results given in concise form will be accepted.

Authors interested in submitting a paper, short communications or review articles are requested to send their manuscript for review to the Editor-in-Chief. The submission of a paper implies the author’s assurance that the paper has not been published and that ‘it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

Manuscript submission: Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been published or it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The paper submitted for publication should have been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. All manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief. The length of the full paper including the references should not exceed TEN pages. Only relevant figures and graphs may be included in the text.

When submitting a manuscript, authors should make a statement to the Editor that the research work contained in their manuscript is completely original and unpublished. Submission of any manuscript that contains redundant or duplicate publication of the same or very similar research work violates the policies of this journal. Authors should submit a list of FIVE (5) potential referees accompanied with their complete mailing address, telephone, fax and email address, who may be contacted for reviewing.

Manuscripts should be sent preferably in electronic form by e-mail: to

Professor Dr. Dongfeng Xue

Manuscript Preparation: Language: Manuscripts must be in clear and grammatical English language. The journal’s language is English. British English or American English spelling and terminology may be used, but that should be followed consistently throughout the article.

The paper should be reasonably subdivided into sections and, if necessary, subsections. In the manuscript preparation, the order below should be followed.

Title: All manuscripts should be headed by a concise but informative title followed by the names of the authors and the address of the laboratory where the work was carried out. The author to whom correspondence should be addressed must be indicated by an asterisk. Main words in the title should be capitalized, but not underlined. No abbreviations are allowed in the title and abstract and should be defined the first time they are used within the text.

Abstract and Keywords: All manuscript begins with an Abstract which should comprise a factual account of the contents of the paper, with emphasis on new information. An Abstract not exceeding 200 or 300 words should be provided for full papers. Authors should supply up to five (5) keywords or phrases, which best characterize the manuscript.

Introduction: The manuscript should be continued with introduction which should include the aims of the study and results from previous notable studies. Give the justification for the work in the introduction. Throughout the paper, use chemical abstract names for the compounds prepared. Please provide a context for the report with respect to previous work done in the field. Clear objectives for the research work should be outlined and relevant literature should be cited.

Experimental: The experimental methods should be given after the introduction section. Detailed experimental descriptions should be restricted. However, sufficient detail should be given to allow any experienced worker to implement the procedures described. Describe the methodology clearly.

Results and Discussion: They may be treated together or separately. Unnecessary repetition should be avoided.

Acknowledgments: These should be kept as short as possible.

Citations: Citations in the text should be by numbers in square brackets.
