Journal of Basic and Environmental Sciences
Authors can now submit their manuscript online via the Editorial System. The
submission this way shortens the overall publication time.
Papers submitted to
Journal of Basic an Environmental Sciences should represent original research not previously
published in the field of pure and applied
Chemical science. Papers may be of a theoretical,
experimental or practical nature, provided that they make a contribution to
Correspondence Section: Authors should ensure that their
manuscripts contain nothing which may be regarded as of a personal nature, or is
capable of being perceived as such. Correspondence should discuss the science,
technical or engineering content only. Any manuscript submitted which does not
follow this standard will be rejected.
Submission to this journal proceeds totally online and you will be guided
stepwise through the creation and uploading of your files. The system
automatically converts source files to a single PDF file of the article, which
is used in the peer-review process.
Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations,
Abstract, Keywords, Main text, Acknowledgements, references, Figure Captions and
then Tables. Do not import figures into the text - see Illustrations.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a
detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Material and methods
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already
published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should
A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article
already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work.
In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a
Results should be clear and concise.
This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat
them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid
extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions
section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results
and Discussion section.
Essential title page information
• Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in
information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
• Author names and affiliations. Where the family name may be ambiguous
(e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors'
affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate
all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the
author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal
address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the
e-mail address of each author.
• Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence
at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure
that phone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the
e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up
to date by the corresponding author.
• Present/permanent address. If an author has moved since the work
described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a 'Present
address' (or 'Permanent address') may be indicated as a footnote to that
author's name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be
retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used
for such footnotes.
A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly
the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An
abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to
stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential,
then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon
abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their
first mention in the abstract itself.
Abstract must not exceed 100 words.
Immediately after the abstract provide a maximum of 6 keywords.
Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text.
Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with
superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of
tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results
described elsewhere in the article.
Text: Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets in line with
the text. The actual authors can be referred to, but the reference number(s)
must always be given.
Example: '..... as demonstrated [3,6]. Barnaby and Jones  obtained a
different result ....'
List: Number the references (numbers in square brackets) in the list in
the order in which they appear in the text.
