Journal of Structural Chemistry is an interdisciplinary publication covering all aspects of structural chemistry, including the theory of molecular structure and chemical bond; the use of physical methods to study the electronic and spatial structure of chemical species; structural features of liquids, solutions, surfaces, supramolecular systems, nano- and solid materials; and the crystal structure of solids.

PEER REVIEW

Journal of Structural Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 90 experts, both internal and external (86%), from 7 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2019 was 32 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 85 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2019 was 41%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
