Authors can submit their manuscripts through online manuscript submission system https://mesford.ca/pms/or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org Please submit your paper in MS Word (.doc or .docx) file format according to the detailed Manuscript Preparation Guide given below. The number of pages is at the discretion of authors; on average papers are 15-25 pages long. When preparing your paper for publication, we strongly advise that you pay particular attention to your research methods, key results and language. To ensure rapid review and publication, please adhere to these guidelines.
The submitted manuscripts or substantial parts of them should not have been previously published or submitted for publication somewhere else. The abbreviated version of the contents for presentation at a meeting is not regarded as a publication.
This journal follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. After initial screening by the editor, submissions are double-blind refereed. The editor also reserves the right to reject a manuscript upon initial screening if deemed inappropriate for the journal whether in terms of topic coverage or in terms of grammar and composition.
The manuscript file should be formatted as double-spaced, single-column text without justification. All pages should be numbered consecutively, and references, tables and legends for figures should be prepared on separate pages. The manuscript should be written in English in a clear, direct and active style.
Manuscripts should include:
Title Page: This page should include a concise and informative title, name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s), email address and telephone number(s) of the corresponding author.
Abstract: Please provide an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.
Keywords: Six to ten keywords must be provided. These keywords will be used for indexing purpose.
JEL: An appropriate number of JEL codes should be provided.
Introduction: This should provide a general context for the work, explaining its significance, and indicating why it should be of interest to chemists in other areas.
Text Organization: The main text should begin on a separate page and should be divided into title page, abstract and the main text. The text may be subdivided further according to the areas to be discussed.
Section Headings: Section headings should be numbered sequentially left aligned and has the first letter capitalized, starting with the introduction. Sub-section headings however, should be in lower-case and italicized with their initials capitalized. They should be numbered as 1.1, 1.2, etc.
Conclusion: A small paragraph summarizing all important accomplishments achieved.
Abbreviations: All but the most common abbreviations should be spelled out the first time used in a manuscript.
Acknowledgements: This section should describe sources of funding that have supported the work. Please also describe the role of the study sponsor(s) (if any) in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data writing of the paper and decision to submit it for publication. Recognition of personal assistance should be given as a separate paragraph: people who contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria for authors should be listed along with their contributions. You must ensure that anyone named in the acknowledgments agrees to being so named.
Footnotes: Footnotes should be numbered consecutively and be typed double-spaced in the same size type as the rest of the paper. It is preferable for them to be placed in a separate section at the back of the paper. Equations should be limited in footnotes because the small font used often makes them illegible.
References: References must be relevant and up-to-date.
– All references should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work.
– Include first names for all authors, rather than initials, but use first-name and middle-name initials if an author used initials in the original publication.
– Use title case for all titles.
– List all authors. It is not acceptable to use et al. in the References section unless the work was authored by a committee.

Appendices: If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
Figures/illustrations: Figures may be submitted in PDF, PNG, EPS, PowerPoint, TIFF, JPEG, Microsoft Word, or BMP and should have appropriate resolution: 1200 dpi for line art, 600 dpi for gray scale and 300 dpi for color. All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the manuscript (e.g. Figure 1, Figure 2). In multi-part figures, each part should be labeled (e.g. Figure 1(a), Figure 1(b)). Figure captions must be placed at the end of the manuscript (for supplementary images you must include the caption with the figure, uploaded as a separate file).
Tables: Tables should be submitted as MS Word.
– Tables should be self-explanatory and include a concise, yet sufficiently descriptive caption.
– Tables should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals and referred to in the text by number.
– Table legends should follow the main text, each on a separate page.
– Tables must be submitted as editable text and not as images.
– Footnotes can be used to explain abbreviations but should not include detailed descriptions of the experiment.
Supportive/Supplementary Material: Supplemental material will always remain associated with its article and is not subjected to any modifications after publication. These files may be submitted in a variety of formats, but should be publication-ready, as these files will be published exactly as supplied. Material that has been published previously is not acceptable for posting as supplemental material. Their format can be: tables, graphs, spectra, films and so on. All supporting information should be referred to in the manuscript, with titles (and, if desired, legends) for all files listed under the heading ‘Supporting Information’. Supportive/Supplementary material must be provided in a single zipped file not larger than 4 MB.
The proofs are provided for the correction of printing errors only, i.e. the proof correction should not be used for language or content improvement. Make sure to proof read and make the correction diligently. Corrected galley proofs should be returned within 72 hours or in 3 business days.
