how to prepare your manuscripts to CCS Chemistry?

  • Share:

A detailed description of your research work should include sufficient information on methods and materials which could be repliacted by the fellow researchers. As a guideline, the text should be structured in sections (abstract, introduction, results and discussion, conclusions, methods). A manuscript of CCS Chemistry commonly includes: 

   •      Title 

   •      Authorship 

   •      Abstract 

   •      Main text (abstract, introduction, results and discussion, conclusions, methods)

   •      Figures/Charts/Tables

   •      Declaration of Conflicts of interest

   •      Acknowledgement

   •      References 

(1) Title 

The Title should accurately, clearly, and concisely reflect the emphasis and content of the paper.

(2) Authorship 

All authors who have contributed to the work should be listed in the manuscript, including full names (including chinese characters of Chinese authors), affiliations, mailing addresses and a valid e-mail address for each. At least one corresponding author must be designated with an asterisk as the main contacts of the manuscript. All editorial correspondence messages will be sent only to the corresponding author(s) during the evaluation period. The corresponding author is responsible for communicating the manuscript status to all co-authors of the paper and for obtaining the co-authors assent to any substantial changes of content or interpretation made during revision. The affiliation for each author should be the institution where the majority of their work was done. All authors are strongly encouraged to register for an ORCID ID, a unique researcher identifier ( 

(3) Abstract 

An abstract is needed for all types of manuscripts, which summarizes the key points of the works. The abstract in each type should not exceed 200 words. 

(4) Main text 

For communication and Full Article, a brief but general introduction about the background of the research development and how important and necessary of the work should be presented in the first paragraph(s). The specifications about the great progresses in your work should succinctly demonstrate the key point and the important discovery as the core part of the paper. Additional experimental procedures and characterization data should be placed in the Supporting Information. And conclusion section should briefly summarizes the principal conclusions of the work, always at the end the main text. 

Sections in Min-Review should classify according to the content  independently. The scope of the Mini-Review should be board enough that including significant progresses in the field as much as possible. The texts also should be undemanding read by non-specialist readers.Thoughtful use of schemes and figures (with well-composed captions) is recommended, so that even casual browsers can discern the nature of the work. Well-known procedures should be designated by name, or literature references to them should be given. For Articles and Mini-Reviews, section headings of each section are needed. If desired for clarification, section headings may be given Arabic numbers and subsections numbered in decimals. But section headings should not be used in a Communication. 

(5)  Figures/Charts/Tables

Figures should be provided at the best resolution available (minimum 600 dpi).

Line drawings (including lines, text, anchors and fillers) should be editable in AI or CDR drawing software. Enlargement or reduction dose not reduce the clarity of the drawings. Commonly used formats are excel, eps, emf, wmf, ai, cdr, origin, chemdraw, etc. Please ensure that the text and lines on the picture are editable.

All the pictures in origin, chemdraw, excel or other formats can be inserted into the manuscript, and be sent to the editorial office as files. 

(6) Conflicts of interest 

A competing interests statement should be provided after the main text. And it is necessary for all contents of the journal. The statement should describe all potential sources of bias, including affiliations, funding sources, and financial or management relationships, that may constitute conflicts of interest. 

(7) Acknowledgement 

People or institutions that dedicate to the financial (such as Grants. etc.) or professional assistance to the work should be brief and placed in the Acknowledgment section. 

(8) References 

Authors must list all previous publications in which portions of the present work have appeared and make sure the accuracy of all reference citations. Commonly, published papers & conference abstracts & books, numbered patents and research datasets could be included in the reference list. References that are only available online should be cited by the Digital Object Identifier (DOI). Unpublished materials that are not generally available to the scientific public should not be used. 

References should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in the order of their first mention in the text. The corresponding numbers should be placed at the appropriate locations in the text as superscripted numerals. Note that each reference should contain only one citation. In the Reference List, journal articles should include the following components: all the author names, article titles, journal abbreviations, year, volume, and full page ranges. All author names must be listed and in the last name, first initial order. The article titles should in the headline capitalization style. See the recommended format and example below.

Author 1; Author 2; Author 3; etc. Title of Article. Journal Abbreviation Year, Volume, Full page ranges.

Barsoum, M.W.; Zhen, T. ; Kalidindi, S.R.; Radovic, M.; Murugaiah, A. Fully Reversible, Dislocation-based Compressive Deformation of Ti3SiC2 to 1GPa. Nat. Mater. 2003, 2, 107-111.

Book references should contain author names, title (Title Case), publisher, city, and year, e.g.

Kholevo, A. S. Probabilistic and Statistical Aspects of Quantum Theory; Springer Link: Pisa, Italy, 2011.

 (9) Cover and other artwork 

Authors of accepted papers are encouraged to submit images for consideration as a cover. Cover images are normally linked to a specific paper in that issue, but we may also be able to use other images elsewhere in the journal, such as on the table of contents. Please also include a clear and concise legend explaining the image.
