Author Guidelines

How to Submit to ECC
  1. Have a look at the Sample Articles and Guidelines .
  2. Write your manuscript in the ECC style. Use MS Word or Latex for the text and ChemDraw for the chemical structures. Apply the ChemDraw Settings to "ACS Document". Illustrations should be submitted in .tif format. Integrate the structures and illustrations into the body of your Word document, but keep all ChemDraw and illustration source files in separate folders.
  3. Send your manuscript plus the source files as an e-mail attachment to the Coordinator:


  4. Peter Schreiner will make initial checks and then pass the manuscript on to the appropriate Section Editor.
  5. If the Coordinator and Editor ask you for corrections, then, please, make the corrections in the text, illustrations and chemical structures and resubmit all material to the same Editor.

For a Sample Manuscript, Article Structure and Guidelines go to Downloads .

Please note: Moving from ECC print to ECC electronic brings some new features. The major changes for the ECC electronic articles are:

  • All articles will have an Abstract and allow the contributors to make Acknowledgments.
  • New format for ChemDraw files: Now contributors should use "ACS Document".
  • New standard citation format for references. This will enable the linking to CrossRef.
