The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering ( (CSChE) is the national technical association representing the field of chemical engineering and the interests of chemical engineers in industry, academia and government.

The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering is published on behalf of The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (

Aims and Scope

The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering (CJChE) publishes original research articles, new theoretical interpretation or experimental findings and critical reviews in the science or industrial practice of chemical and biochemical processes. Preference is given to papers having a clearly indicated scope and applicability in any of the following areas: Fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, multiphase flows, separations processes, thermodynamics, process systems engineering, reactors and reaction kinetics, catalysis, interfacial phenomena, electrochemical phenomena, bioengineering, minerals processing and natural products and environmental and energy engineering. Papers that merely describe or present a conventional or routine analysis (without novel elements) of existing processes will not be considered.

(a) Review article – these normally are invited. Authors wishing to submit a critical review should consult the editor, in advance.

(b) Article – a full-length paper describing new theory, or significant and substantial new results in any of the areas identified above.

(c) Note – describes the results of a short, but complete study, or describes new or significantly improved experimental methods or devices.

(d) Letters – are of two types: (1) from authors, correcting or briefly elaborating on a paper previously published in the Journal; (2) from others, commenting on material previously published in the CJChE. Normally, these will be sent to the authors of the prior publication for their response before publication.

Submission of a paper infers that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere and that it has not been published previously in any archival publication. All the co-authors should have approved the submission, in advance. Review articles, articles and notes will be reviewed by three persons knowledgeable of the topic. Reviewers will remain anonymous.
