INSTRUCTION FOR AUTHORS

 

The Editorial Board announces that from 01.07.2014 introduces obligatory a fee of 100 Euro per one research article in the International Journal Oxidation Communications for authors, whose Institutions, to which they belong, have no subscription to the Journal for the corresponding year. The introduction of this payment is imposed by the financial difficulties of the Editorial Board enforced by the financial crisis. The authors can publish their manuscripts as rapid publication (9 months after the receipt of positive referees comments and the revised version) after they pay additional fee of 50 Euro. The articles intended to be published as rapid publication should follow the requirements for contribution length as pointed below. Authors from Universities and Organisations, which have a subscription or sponsorship to the Journal publish their papers free of charge. The authors receive a hard copy of the Journal issue containing their published article free of charge. Some figures, according to authors decision, can be published coloured in order to make them more understandable to the reader. The additional payment is 75 Euro per printed page.The publication fees mentioned above are applicable for the historically determined volume of the Journal – 1600 pp per year. The publication fees of the papers in Special issues (over the historical volume) are a subject of additional agreements. .

 The authors are kindly requested to send a declaration on copyright transfer simultaneously with the manuscript submission to the editorial board of Oxidation Communications.All authors must agree to be so listed and must have seen and approved the manuscript, its content, and its submission to Oxidation Communications. Submission of a paper that has not been approved by all authors will not be forwarded for evaluation and publication. Any changes in authorship must be approved in writing by all the original authors. Manuscripts should present original results not previously published and not considered for publication elsewhere. Authors declare this in the notification letter. Only relevant experimental data that are discussed in the manuscript should be described. Authors are encouraged to present the experimental data in the form of tables. The duplication of experimental data in tables and figures should be avoided.

 
MANUSCRIPTS TYPE

 Short communications – up to 4 printed pages (about 14 000 characters) including text, all illustrative materials (tables, figures, etc.) and references.
Research articles – up to 8 printed pages (without figures – about 28 100 characters) and 10 printed pages
with figures ( up to 35 260 characters) including main text, tables, figures, schemes and references.
Reviews – up to 15 printed pages (52 890 characters) including main text, tables, figures, schemes and
references.
The Editorial Board will strictly follow the requirement for contribution length in view of the overaccumulation
of scientific papers, submitted for publication in the Journal and the restricted volume of each book. Contributions within the stated lengths will be published free of page charges. Depending on the exceeding length are introduced page charges (up to 100 Euro).
Receipt of a contribution for consideration
will be acknowledged immediately by the Editorial Office. The acknowledgement will indicate the paper reference number assigned to the contribution. Authors are particularly asked to quote this number on all subsequent correspondence.
 

ORGANISATION

The title page should include the title, authors and their affiliations, complete address of the author to whom correspondence should be sent and an Abstract.
Abstract – should not exceed 200 words and should give the subjects and conclusions of the article and all results of general interest. References, compound numbers and abbreviations should be avoided.. A maximum of five keywords should follow the Abstract.
Aims and Background – should include brief and clear remarks outlining the specific purpose of the work and a short summary of the background material including numbered references.
Experimental – should be sufficiently detailed (but concise) to guarantee reproducibility.
Results and Discussion – should indicate the logic used for the interpretation of data without lengthy speculations. Authors submitting material on purely theoretical problems or on a new experimental technique might unite the sections Experimental, Results and Discussion into one section under the heading Discussion. Authors should avoid doubling of results in the form of Tables and Figures.
Conclusions – short summary of the main achievements of the research.
References – should be typed at the end of the manuscript and numbered in the order as first cited in the text as superscript Arabic numerals. In the list of references the original papers should be given with their titles. Abbreviations of journal titles should follow the style used in ISI Journal Title Abbreviations. Sequence and punctuation of references should be:

1. E. SZABУ, G. L. ZЬGNER, M. FARKAS, I. SZILБGYI, S. DУBЙ: Direct Kinetic Study of the OH-radical Initiated Oxidation of Pivalaldehyde, (CH3)3CC(O)H, in the Gas Phase. Oxid Commun, 35 (3), 538 (2012).

2. M. B. NEIMAN, D. GAL: The Kinetic Isotope Method. Akademiai Kiado, Budapest, 1971.

4. C. HANSCH (Ed.): Comprehensive Drug Design. Pergamon Press, New York, 1990, p. 19.

In preparing the list of References attention must be drawn to the following points:

(a) Names of all authors of cited publications should be given. Use of ‘et al.’ in the list of references is not acceptable;

Tables – each bearing a brief title and numbered in Arabic numerals. The tables should be placed in the text as first cited.
Figures and captions – should be numbered consecutively with captions and must be placed at their first mentioning in the text.
Particular attention is drawn to the use of SI Units, IUPA C nomenclature for compounds and standard methods of literature citation.
