Author Guidelines

Before your submission, please check that your manuscript has been prepared in accordance to the step-by-step instructions for submitting a manuscript to our online submission system.

Manuscript Format

Your manuscript should be in MS Word. You are advised to download the document, EnPress Manuscript Submission Template , as a template or for more details on preparing your submissions to Applied Chemical Engineering for consideration.

All manuscripts must be written in clear, comprehensible English. Both British and American English are accepted. Usage of non-English words should be kept to a minimum. If you have concerns about the level of English in your submission, please ensure that it is proofread before submission by a native English speaker or a scientific editing service.


Types of Submissions Accepted

Applied Chemical Engineering accepts original research articles, review articles, editorials, case reports, letters, brief commentaries, perspectives, methods, etc. Please read further for the definition of each type and select the appropriate option in the submission system. Submissions exceeding the suggested requirements such as ‘entire manuscript length’ will still be processed for consideration and peer review. However, article processing charges will differ in exceptional cases. The article processing charge will then be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Original Research Article: scientific articles on original basic and applied research and/or analysis.

Review Article: a summary highlighting recent developments and current/future trends of the field.

Letter: containing new ideas, supporting data or data criticizing the article may be subjected to peer-review (determined on a case-by-case basis by the journal’s editorial team) and published in the online publication but not in the printed version.

Editorials will be published in both online and printed versions of the journal. This manuscript type typically has 3500 words.

Case Report: it summarizes the execution of a collaborative research program that is directly related to the advancement of applied chemical engineering

Brief Commentary: unsolicited commentaries or analysis from reader(s) targeting specific published articles in the journal. Commentaries will be subjected to peer-review and may be published in both online and printed versions of the journal. This manuscript type typically has 3500 words.

Perspective: these are authors' personal opinions on a subject/topic. Unlike Review articles, Perspective articles may cover a more specific, narrow part of the field.

Cover Letter

All submissions should include a cover letter as a separate file. A cover letter should contain a brief explanation of what was previously known, the conceptual advancement with the findings and its significance to broad readership, as well as Informed Consent Statement or ethics approval ID (if available).
