CHROMATOGRAPHIA is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to the latest advances in separation sciences. Its goal is to monitor state-of-the-art research and to promote study, research and improvement within its various application areas, including archaeology, biotechnology, clinical, environmental, food, medical, petroleum, pharmaceutical, polymer and biopolymer research, as well as preparative and process-scale applications. The journal focuses on papers that show the scope and power of separation sciences when combined with spectroscopic methods, in particular with mass spectrometry. In addition to exciting new areas in chromatography, such as ultra-high pressure and high-temperature approaches, CHROMATOGRAHIA focuses on hyphenated systems that combine several unit operations with chromatography and electro-based separations, especially on the micro- and nanoscale. Integrated biological procedures (e.g., enzymatic, immunological, receptor-based assays) can also be part of the overall analytical process. Developments in separation-related sampling and sampling-preparation approaches, and in particular the combination of these techniques with the above methodologies, are also comprehensively covered.

CHROMATOGRAPHIA welcomes submissions that present significant scientific advances in any of these  fields. Originality, novelty and scientific potential impact are the key criteria of the Editorial Board for selecting publications appropriate for CHROMATOGRAPHIA. Submission of papers describing the application of simple methodologies, established methods or techniques to individual compounds, simple mixtures or matrices is discouraged.

Acceptable paper types include Original Articles, Short Communications, Reviews and Letters to the Editor.

 Author benefits:  

  • Online publication within 20 days after acceptance
  • No submission fee for full-color illustrations in accepted articles
  • Book discount for contributing authors
  • Open Choice, offers authors the option of having their journal articles made available with full open access in exchange for payment of a basic fee

    Aims and Scope

    Separation sciences, in all their various forms such as chromatography, field-flow fractionation, and electrophoresis, provide some of the most powerful techniques in analytical chemistry and are applied within a number of important application areas, including archaeology, biotechnology, clinical, environmental, food, medical, petroleum, pharmaceutical, polymer and biopolymer research. Beyond serving analytical purposes, separation techniques are also used for preparative and process-scale applications. The scope and power of separation sciences is significantly extended by combination with spectroscopic detection methods (e.g., laser-based approaches, nuclear-magnetic resonance, Raman, chemiluminescence) and particularly, mass spectrometry, to create hyphenated techniques. In addition to exciting new developments in chromatography, such as ultra high-pressure systems, multidimensional separations, and high-temperature approaches, there have also been great advances in hybrid methods combining chromatography and electro-based separations, especially on the micro- and nanoscale. Integrated biological procedures (e.g., enzymatic, immunological, receptor-based assays) can also be part of the overall analytical process.

    CHROMATOGRAPHIA will highlight new and fundamental developments in separation technologies and approaches, sorbent materials, mobile phases, sample preparation methods, and detection techniques, to improve the sensitivity, selectivity, efficiency and speed of separations. These can include hyphenated systems that integrate several unit operations within the analytical workflow (e.g., sample clean-up, separation, assay, detection). Advanced and complex applications of the separation sciences are welcome, provided they include clear novelty and have significance to the wider analytical community. It will also report advances in miniaturisation and the scaling down of systems to enable the analysis of smaller sample sizes and volumes and to allow the simultaneous screening of multiple compounds (i.e., -omics approaches). Preliminary data can be published, again provided there is sufficient novelty in the operations or their combination and the results will be beneficial for the readers of CHROMATOGRAPHIA and could inspire them to bring their own research to a higher level.

    CHROMATOGRAPHIA welcomes submissions that present significant scientific advances in any of these fields. Originality, novelty and scientific value are the key criteria of the Editors for selecting publications appropriate for CHROMATOGRAPHIA. Submission of papers describing the application of established methods or techniques to individual or small groups of compounds, or to an additional matrix/sample is discouraged.

    The language of the journal is English and it is the author’s responsibility to ensure the quality of English used in the submitted manuscript.
