Guide for Authors

JPCE , is an Iranian journal covering all fields of physical chemistry and electrochemistry.

JPCE welcomes high quality original papers in English dealing with experimental, theoretical, applied

research and review articles to all branches of physical chemistry and electrochemistry. You

are kindly invited to submit your manuscript and send your article to .All

contributions in the form of original papers or short communications will be peering reviewed and

published free of charge after acceptance.

Submission Information

All correspondence concerning submission of manuscripts and communications concerning

editorial matters should be addressed to Email: . Submission of an article

in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyrightholder.


Please submit, as part of the covering letter with the manuscript, the names, full affiliation

(department, institution, city and country) and email addresses of three potential referees.

Article Structure

Follow this order when typing manuscript: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords,

Main Text, Acknowledgements, Appendix, References, Figures and then Tables. Collate

acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article.

Text Layout:

Use Times New Roman font no. 12 with double space between each lineal.

Present tables and figures on separate page at the end of the manuscript. Number all pages



Papers should be headed by a concise and informative title. This should be followed by the

name (s) and complete address of the author(s).

Corresponding authors:

Clearly indicate who is responsible for correspondence at all stages of

refereeing and publication, including post-publication. Telephone and fax numbers (with area code)

are provided in addition to the e-mail address and complete postal address. Full postal address must

be given for all co-authors.


An abstract of 150-250 words should be included at the beginning of a paper. The abstract

should be state briefly the purpose of the research, the principle results and major conclusions. An

abstract is often presented in a single paragraph, so it must be able to stand alone for this reason and

References should be avoided.


Immediately after the abstract, provide five to ten keywords. Be sparing with

abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.


State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a

detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Material and Methods:

Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods

already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be



/Calculation: A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article

already dealt with in the Introduction. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical

development from a theoretical basis.


Results should be clear and concise.


This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A

combined Results and Discussions section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and

discussion of published literature.


The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusion section,

which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.


All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following

the text of the manuscript. In the text make references using a number in square brackets on the

line, and the full references should be given in a given in a numerical list at the end of the paper.

The Titles of journals should be abbreviated according to the standard rules. Titles for wich no

abbreviation is given should be written out in full.

Tables should be numbered consecutively and given suitable captions and each table should

begin on a new page. No vertical rules should be used. Tables should not duplicate results presented

elsewhere in the manuscript (for example, in graphs). Footnotes to tables should be typed below the
