REQUIREMENTS TO ARTICLES SUBMITTED TO THE "UZBEK CHEMICAL JOURNAL"
 

The headings of the journal are formulated by the editorial board in accordance with the requirements in the following fields of chemistry: physical, inorganic, organic, analytical, applied chemistry…

In connection with the preparation for the registration of the journal in the international system for the registration of scientific publications (primarily Scopus), with the assignment to the article of the D.O.I.-index, the articles sent to the journal must meet the following requirements:

1. The results of experimental research with scientific novelty are published in the "Uzbek Chemical Journal" in the following scientific fields: physical, inorganic, organic, analytical, colloidal and membrane chemistry, nanochemistry, chemistry of high-molecular compounds, chemistry of silicates, metallurgy, processes and chemical apparatuses technology, chemistry and technology of oil and gas, technology of inorganic substances, technology of organic substances, ecology and rational use of natural resources.The material can be presented in the form of experimental articles in Uzbek, Russian and English.

2. At the beginning of the article (above its title) in the upper right corner, you need to put an index on the universal decimal classification (UDC). The article begins with the initials and surnames of the authors, then the title of the article is given, under which the organization in which the work is done is indicated in parentheses, the e-mail address of the contact person: one of the authors. The manuscript of the article is signed by all authors with the date of dispatch. The number of authors is no more than 4. The positions and place of work of each author are indicated. From the Republic of Uzbekistan the article is submitted in printed and electronic form on an electronic medium (Flesh or CD), enclosed in an envelope, indicating the authors and title of the article. The recording on the medium and the printout (1 copy) must be identical. Authors from other countries send articles by e-mail. The editorial office notifies the receipt of materials and provides the registration number of the article. The article is accompanied by a letter to the editorial office of the organization where the work was done, with an examination certificate confirming the possibility of its public publication.

3. It is recommended to present the article in simple language, short sentences, at least 6 upto 16 pages in length, adhering to the Internationally recognized IMRAD structure (Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion):

• Title
• Abstract
• Introduction

• Methods and materials

• Results and discussion
• Conclusion
• Acknowledgments (optional)

The abstract in Russian, English and Uzbek contains 1800-2000 characters (1 page of text through 1.5 intervals, font Times New Roman, size 14) reflects the content of the article. The abstract in English should be made according to the requirements of technical translation by a professional or native English speakers (the editorial board will reject non-professional translations). 

The summary of the abstract is given below.
Authors
Аrticle title
Name of organization

Abstract. Background

Purpose

Methodology

Originality 

Findings 

Keywords (up to 10 words)

Highlights (features) - in several monosyllables, in one line (with the number of characters up to 84 with spaces), sentences with the results of the research: they should be at least 2-3.
Below is a sample of three such Highlights:
• We execute a kinetics study of silver leaching from tailings, using thiosulfate.
• Reaction orders are 1 (oxygen), 0.07 (thiosulfate), 0.45 (pH) and 0.26 (copper).
• The activation energy in the range of temperatures 288-328 K was 1.91 kJ • mol-1.
 

The introduction (about 20% of the volume of the article) begins with a description of the "problem" in a specific field of the research conducted, strictly in scientific, but not in literary, art, newspaper or popular science style: the problem is described specifically to this "narrow" area. Further, it is told what the predecessors in this field did, referring to the works published by them, briefly (several words or sentences) characterizing them individually: linking links, for example: [3-5], is unacceptable. Links should be logically "linked" with the topic of the study. Their total number is not less than 12 (including: no more than 3 ones for own works, at least 4 - for foreign sources no older than 5 years, at least 5 - for up-to-date literature after 2014 The introduction contains "criticism" (a description of the "white spots" of solving the problem), the formulation of the purpose and objectives of the study. 

The foregoing on Introduction applies to the Background of the abstract, with the difference that the Input material should be transferred to the Background in a concise form.

Subsequent sections of the article: "Methods and materials", "Results and discussion", "Conclusion" should disclose the content of each of them. The section "Results and discussion" should contain from 4-5 to 8-12 illustrations of the experimental material (tables, graphs, diagrams, photographs, spectra, etc.). Texts illustrated, for example, only by a couple of tables, are rejected, as unfinished, unconvincing or "superficial". Discussion of their own data is the most difficult part of the article: it is also an indicator of the scientific "maturity" of the author. The conclusion resulting from it should be correlated with the goal-objectives of the study and answer the questions: is the stated goal achieved and what are the most important results of the work?

The list of cited literature at the end of the article should be given twice: once - in the "List of literature" section, in the original language of the publication, taking into account the norms recognized by the Higher Attestation Commission of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the second time - in the "References" section - in the translation of the original source title into English, with indicating the language of the original source, in brackets, for example, (In Uzbek), (In Russian). Literature references in the text are enclosed in square brackets. In references to articles from inaccessible sources, patents and deposited manuscripts, an indication of bulletins or abstract journals is required.

 4. The article should be completed with 14 font size "Times New Roman", interval -1.5. Fields: top-2 cm, left-3 cm, bottom-2 cm, right-1.5 cm. In the title of the article and the annotation, one should not enter formulas and abbreviations, even common ones. It should avoid the use of non-conventional abbreviations. When the abbreviated term is first mentioned, its decoding in its entirety is mandatory. Handwritten inserts are not allowed. For previously identified known substances, names and references to the relevant sources are given. All the tables in the text are necessarily referenced. All the columns in the tables should be entitled. Do not put any abbreviations in the tables. Values ​​in the headings of the graph should have an indication of the units in which they are expressed. Structural formulas in the tables are not given.

5. Instead of cumbersome names for simple chemicals, it is necessary to give their formulas, for example, NaBr, CO2, CO, N2, H2SO4, NaOH, KOH, etc. The articles should use the generally accepted abbreviations, the dimension adopted in the International System of Units.

6. Separate the words inside the paragraph with one space; type text without forced hyphenation. Request: avoid overloading articles with a large number of formulas, drawings, graphs; for a set of symbols in the formulas of MS Equation (MS Word) editors use settings (Styles / Dimensions) only by default, decimal fractional numbers separated by a period.

7. The graphs are accepted in MS Excel editors, Origin, structural formulas in ChemWind.

8. Drawings and formulas for width should not exceed 8 cm, and their font must correspond to 10 MS Word font. The drawings should not have a frame and a grid. The designation of variables on the axes (only the symbols are used, separated by a comma and space-dimension) should be placed on the outside of the figure (as well as the numbers), and not in the figure field. For example: the axis should be designated t, min (and not Time, min). Experimental curves should be numbered in italic type. All explanations should be given only in the caption. No legends and comments are allowed in the chart field. Figures should be made with a line thickness of at least 0.75pt.

9. Not allowed: the use of styles in the formation of text; make changes to the template or create your own for the formation of the text; use of spaces before signs (including - inside of parentheses) punctuation, after them one space is put; Use the "Insert page end" operation; drawing a drawing using MS Word, place tables on landscape pages.
