Permissions

Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.


Manuscripts should fall under one the following categories:

FULL PAPERS

Full papers report the results of original investigations and should be structured in the usual order of presentation, comprising Introduction, Results and Discussion, Experimental section (which may either precede or follow Results and Discussion), Conclusions, Acknowledgments, and References, according to the specificities of each manuscript.

REVIEWS

This category encompasses reflective articles and analyses of the literature output, outlining the progress and state-of-the-art in particular areas of Chemistry, from the specialist’s perspective.

 PAPERS ON EDUCATION

The focus of papers on Education is the teaching with dissemination of innovative experiences at all levels of schooling, from elementary to higher education (undergraduate and graduate programs). Short communications of accounts of academic or professional experience, also fall into this category.

 SHORT COMMUNICATIONS

Shorter texts (of up to four pages) on scientific investigations under way, reporting preliminary results achieved to date. Their purpose is to speed up communication regarding ongoing lines of investigation that have led to recent breakthroughs.

 TECHNICAL NOTES

Technical notes are reports on methods, techniques, equipment, or accessories developed at the authors’ laboratory.

 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

These should encourage constructive discussion between readers and authors and may concern any scientific topic relevant to the purposes of the journal, including critical discussion of recently published papers; in this case, Letters submitted by readers will be forwarded to the authors in question inviting responses to the readers’ appraisal or critique. Letters to the Editor will be published at the sole discretion of the Editorial Team and only after a response from the authors has been obtained.

 The QUARKS journal also will publish a number of special issues in addition to the regular ones.

If necessary, place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase numbers.
