Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- Authors of accepted manuscripts will have to pay an article processing charge of EUR 400.00 (50% discount for corresponding authors of WB Lower-middle-income countries and 100% for those of WB Low-income countries).
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
- Acta Chromatographica applies a single-blind review process, in which the reviewers’ identities are hidden to the authors while the reviewers are aware of the authors’ identity. Therefore, please submit your manuscript in ONE FILE ONLY, preferably in DOC/DOCX. The order should be as follows: title, list of the authors with their affiliations and addresses, abstract and keywords, text, appendix, acknowledgements, notes, references, tables, figures. Please do not submit a separate title page!
