High Energy Chemistry publishes original articles, reviews, and short communications on molecular and supramolecular photochemistry, photobiology, radiation chemistry, plasma chemistry, chemistry of nanosized systems, chemistry of new atoms, processes and materials for optical information systems and other areas of high energy chemistry. It publishes theoretical and experimental studies in all areas of high energy chemistry, such as the interaction of high-energy particles with matter, the nature and reactivity of short-lived species induced by the action of particle and electromagnetic radiation or hot atoms on substances in their gaseous and condensed states, and chemical processes initiated in organic and inorganic systems by high-energy radiation.

PEER REVIEW

High Energy Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 10%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
