Author Guidelines

This page provides general information for authors

Submission Policy

Papers submitted to Al-Kimia must contain original material. The submitted paper, or any translation of it, must neither be published, nor be submitted for publication elsewhere. Violations of these rules will normally result in an immediate rejection of the submission without further review. Contributions should be written in English and include a 100-300 words abstract. Al-Kimia usually welcomes the following types of contributions:

• Original research articles
• Review articles, providing a comprehensive review on a scientific topic

All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted via journal system.

General Peer-Review Process

In short, all manuscripts submitted for publication in our journals are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed. The review process is double blind. If the manuscript is accepted for full review, it will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers. 

Submitted manuscripts will undergo a detailed initial check including a Plagiarism Check in the Editorial Office. An Editor – usually the Editor-in-Chief or a board member of the journal – together with the Editorial Office takes charge of the peer-review process. It starts with a Preliminary Review by the Editor (finished no more than 10 days after manuscript submission). 

After a manuscript is accepted for full review, the Editor will collect at least two review comments and prepare a decision letter based on the comments of the reviewers (finished no more than 4 weeks after preliminary review). The decision letter is sent to the Corresponding Author to request an adequate revision (peer-reviewed again whenever necessary). The author will be asked to format the manuscript according to Al-Kimia’s template before it goes into typesetting and proofreading with the publisher. The author will receive the paper in PDF produced by Al-Kimia for checking before it is published online.
