Author Guidelines


NEW INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING A MANUSCRIPT (as of December 15, 2015)

The manuscript should be submitted online via the online submission service Editorial Manager (https://www.editorialmanager.com/chembiodiv/default.aspx). Each submission step is outlined in ‘How to submit a manuscript’ on the left hand side of the Editorial Manager Login page.

Before submitting a manuscript to Editorial Manager of Chemistry & Biodiversity, it is highly recommended to consult the current Instructions for Authors and published articles of a recent issue of the journal.

The author must inform the editor of other manuscripts accepted, submitted, or soon to be submitted that have a bearing on the manuscript being submitted. If the submitted manuscript is, in fact, a revised/extended version of a manuscript previously rejected by Chemistry & Biodiversity, the author must inform the editor about the previous submission in the cover letter and explain in detail the essential changes that have been made. The Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Journals and Reviews issued by the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) are followed and applied by Angewandte Chemie; these guidelines are similar to the Ethical Guidelines to Publication of Chemical Research of the American Chemical Society. A further source for information are the Best Practice Guidelines on Publishing Ethics: A Publisher´s Perspective. Please note that all submitted manuscripts are subject to plagiarism checks.

Effective with the 2017 volume, Chemistry & Biodiversity will be published in an online-only format.
