 Preparation of Manuscripts


Contributed articles should contain new research findings which represent advances in chemical engineering research. Manuscripts are subject to peer-review by a board of referees. The average length of an article is 20 A4 pages double-spaced, including figures and tables. Contributed articles should be arranged in the following order:

Title and Authors: The title, which should be kept brief, should emphasize the principal objective. Authors' names follow the title in the next line. On a separate line, mention authors’ affiliations (with addresses) where the research was done. Use an asterisk (*) to distinguish the corresponding author with a footnote containing an e-mail address of the person.

Abstract: The abstract should state the objective and conclusions of the research concisely in no more than 200 words. An additional abstract, in Persian, should accompany the manuscript. For those authors who are not familiar with Persian, the abstract are prepared by the editorial staff.


Keywords: Select a maximum of five keywords from your article that best describe the topic. These words will be used for search and retrieval, as well as indexing.


Text: Text shall start with a concise ‘Introduction,’ which should be free from unnecessary or non-essential details. Plain and standard English should be used for preparation of the text. It should be divided into sections with clear titles for easier reference. Authors have to either use the spell-checking facility of their word processor or proof-read the manuscript themselves before submission of the paper.

Nomenclatures: Symbols should be either defined in the text or entirely placed at the end of the text and immediately before the ‘References’ section. Symbols cited should be listed alphabetically in the order of Roman symbols, letters, subscripts and superscripts.


References: Should be listed in numerical order in the order in which they are cited in the text. Use Arabic numerals followed by a period (1., 2., etc.). The numbers must correspond to the ones used for reference within the main text (in brackets: [ ]). Give complete information, including names of all authors, titles of the article and periodicals or books, numbers of pages and volumes, and publication years. Authors should use the following style to format their references:

Journal Articles: 1. Abasaeed, A. F. and Lee, Y. Y., “Inulin hydrolysis to fructose by a novel catalyst”, Chem. Eng. Technol., 18 (6), 440 (1995) [Volume (issue number), number of the first page (year of publication)].

Books: 2. Flinn, R. A. and Trojan, P. K., Engineering materials and their applications, 3rd ed., Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, USA, p. 144 (1986).

Proceedings: 3. Tuzunoglu, E. and Bagci, S., “Immiscible CO2 flooding through horizontal wells for oil recovery,” proceedings of The 2nd Int. Cong. on Non-Renewable Energy Sources, Tehran, Iran, 1, pp. 152-161 (1998).

Patents: 4. Miller, B. O., US Pat. 2542356, Dow Chemical Co., (1952).

Note: There is publication fee for the accepted papers (5,000,000 Rials) before final publication. A request to waive this fee can be sent to the Journal Editor in chief for the papers from outside of Iran.

In order to authenticate the sources of information and avoid any similarities in the literature with other papers, all manuscripts are checked from the Plagiarism point of view before starting the reviewing process using iThenticate via Hamsana company, Iran.
