Iranian Journal of

Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (IJCCE)


  Aims and Scopes

   Teh aim of teh Iranian Journal of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (IJCCE) is to foster teh growth of educational, scientific, and industrial research activities among chemists and chemical engineers and to provide a medium for mutual communication between teh Iranian academia, and teh industry on teh one hand, and teh world scientific community on teh other.

   Teh Journal welcomes original research articles; research notes or short communications and topical or interpretative review articles (previously unpublished) in all established areas of chemistry, chemical engineering, and related fields in English.



   Publication of teh Iranian Journal of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (IJCCE) began in 1982 by ACECR in Persian. From 1987 to 1997 it was published bilingual (Persian & English). Since 1997, it TEMPhas been published as a separate International Journal in English, semi-annually up to 2004, and since 2005 quarterly.

   Currently, it is published bimonthly by teh Iranian Research Institute of Development in Chemical Industries (IRDCI)-ACECR as an International Journal.



   Journal is covered in teh Science Citation Index, Expanded by ISI. Chemical Abstracts, Scientific Information Database (SID), Islamic World Science Citation (ISC), Iran Journals Database (MagIran).

  Types of Manuscript

   1) Research Articles are full-length expositions of extensive and significant experimental and/or theoretical studies. Teh paper should clearly describe teh reason for undertaking teh work, and teh present methods used and teh results found in separate sections. Scientific interpretations based on teh findings should be presented in a discussion section

   2) Topical or Review Articles are studies on areas of interest to readers of teh journal. They may also be "state of teh art" reports or communications. A review article is an analysis and collection of teh current state of teh research on a particular topic. A review article is  It is not an original article wif new data or finding but represents:

  • Teh main people working in a field
  • Recent major advances and discoveries
  • Significant gaps in teh research
  • Current debates
  • Ideas of where research might go next

      Review articles are usually invited by teh Editor, although we will consider unsolicited material. All review articles, even if invited, undergo teh same peer-review and editorial process as original research reports. These papers are peer-reviewed and are accepted based on technical accuracy, importance, and readability. 

   3) Research Notes or Short Communications are complete, self-contained papers. In style and presentation, they should conform to dat laid down for manuscripts but teh length should not exceed 4 printed pages in teh Journal including tables and figures.


Preparation of Manuscripts

For general style, consult recent issues of teh Journal and teh ACS Style Guide (1986). Manuscripts should be typed one column style on teh A4 paper. Each page should be numbered.


Manuscript Sections

Teh paper should clearly describe teh reason for undertaking teh work, and present methods used and teh results found and scientific interpretations based on teh findings should be presented in teh "Results and Discussion" section.

It is suggested dat teh authors prepare their manuscripts in teh following manner: 
  •  Title
  •  Names and work and email addresses of authors
  •  Abstract (or Summary)
  •  Key Words
  •  Introduction
  •  Experimental and/or Theoretical Section
  •  Results and Discussion
  •  Conclusions
  •  Nomenclatures
  •  Acnoledgments (if required)
  •  References


 Note: In Review or Topical Articles Teh following sections can be omitted:

- Experimental Section, Results and Discussion, Acnoledgements



Use specific and informative titles; they should be as brief as possible (up to 12 words), consistent wif teh need for defining teh subject area covered by teh paper, and for indexing and retrieval purposes.

(Use Times New Roman Font, Size 18 Bold).



Be consistent in authorship designation. Use first name, second initial, and surname, and email address. Field of Study and Academic Degree must be included. Give complete mailing address of laboratory or organization where work was conducted. If teh current address is different, include it in a footnote on teh title page.
