Instructions to Authors


          The Egyptian Journal of Analytical Chemistry publishes papers in all aspects of the theory and practice of analytical chemistry, fundamental and applied, including chemical, physical and biological methods. The following types of papers will be considered:

          Full papers, describing original work

          Short papers, describing original work, but short and limited breadth of subject matter, there will be no difference in the quality of the work described in full and short papers.

          Review, which must be a critical evaluation of the existing state of knowledge on a particular facet of analytical chemistry.

          Every paper will be submitted to at least two referees, by whose advice the editorial board of the journal will be guided as to its acceptance or rejection. Papers that are accepted must not be published elsewhere except by permission.

Submission of a manuscript will be regarded as an undertaking that the same material is not being considered for publication by another journal.

Copyright. The whole of the literary matter (including tables, figures, diagrams and photographs) in the Egyptian Journal of Analytical Chemistry is copyright and must not be reproduced without permission.

          Manuscripts. Papers should be typewritten in double spacing on one side only of the paper. Three copies of text and illustration should be sent to the Chief-Editor.

          Proofs. The address to which proofs are to be sent to should accompany the paper. Proofs should be carefully checked and returned immediately.

          Fees of publication 150 L.E per paper for post and handling, cost be paid with the submitted manuscript. For non-Egyptian, the equivalent amount of any exchangeable currency is accepted.

          Reprints. twenty reprints of each paper can be purchased if ordered at the time of publication. Details are sent to authors with the proofs.


Notes on the writing of papers the Egypt.J.Anal.Chem.


Manuscripts should be in accordance with the style of the journal Conciseness of expression should be aimed at: adopting a logical order of presentation, with suitable paragraph or section headings ,

          Descriptions of new methods should be supported by experimental results showing accuracy, precision and selectivity.

The recommended order of presentation is as indicated below:

(a)           Title. This should be as brief and is consistent with an adequate indication of the original features of the work. The analytical method used in the work should be mentioned in the title.

(b)           Summary. A synopsis of about 100 words, giving the salient features and drawing attention to the novel aspects, should be provided.

(c)           Aim of investigation. An introductory statement of the aim of the investigation, with any essential historical background, followed, if necessary, by a brief account of preliminary experimental work.

(d)          Description of the experimental procedures. Working details must be given concisely. Analytical procedures should preferably be given in the form of instructions, well known operations should not be described in detail.

(e)           Results. These are best presented in tabular form, followed by any statistical evaluation, which should be in accordance with accepted practice.

(f)            Discussion of results. This section will comment on the scope of the method and its validity, followed by a statement of any conclusion drawn from the work.

Nomenclature. Current internationally recognized (IUPAC) chemical nomenclature should be used. Common trivial names may be used, but should first be defined in terms of IUPAC nomenclature.

     SI units. The SI system of units should be used.

Tables and Diagrams. The number of tables should be kept to a minimum. Column headings should be brief. Tables consisting of only two columns can often be arranged horizontally. Tables must be supplied with titles and be so set out as to be understandable without reference to the text.

     Either tables or graphs may be used but not both for the same set of results, unless important additional data is given by so doing. The information given by a straight-line calibration graph can usually be conveyed adequately as an equation
