1.1. The international journal Chemistry of Natural Compounds publishes previously unpublished results of experimental investigations on the isolation, structure elucidation, synthesis, and chemical transformations of NATURAL COMPOUNDS, and their structure–activity (biological) relationships. The results can be submitted as experimental articles and short communications in Russian or good English. Articles rejected because of poor English but with a positive review can be published only after editing of the English by the Edanz Group (http://edanzediting.com). Articles on essential oils are accepted only as short communications (no more than four pages) for plants studied for the first time regardless of their habitat. The retention index (RI, KI) should be indicated in articles using chromatography–mass-spectrometry. Also, information on published monographs, reports on conferences, advertisements for products, and competitions in chemistry is published in the journal.
1.2. Submitted articles should be clearly written and condensed as much as possible. Artificial division of articles into separate communications is not allowed.
The length of articles should be less than 15 pages; short communications, 4 pages, including figures, diagrams, tables, and references.
Short communications should contain new results without a detailed experimental section. Only names and references to the appropriate sources should be given for previously isolated compounds.
Review articles are accepted only with preliminary approval of the Editorial Board.
The Editorial Board retains the right to shorten articles regardless of their length.
1.3. The text of an article by authors from the Republic of Uzbekistan should be submitted to the Editorial Board in printed and electronic form on a flash drive. Authors from other countries should send articles only by electronic mail. The Editorial Board acknowledges receipt of submissions and conveys the registration number.
1.4. An article returned to the author for revision and correction must be submitted to the Editorial Board together with the new version (one copy) within one month.
1.5. An article should be accompanied by the corresponding documentation and Consent for Publication.
1.6. The author accepts responsibility for the accuracy of data in the article.
1.7. All articles sent to the Editorial Board are reviewed and edited.
1.8. The journal does not pay honoraria. The Editorial Board requests authors to prepare articles according to the instructions given below. Manuscripts written without observing these instructions will not be reviewed by the Editorial Board.
2. Organization of articles
2.1. Articles and short communications begin with the title followed by initials and last names of authors, full name of the institution, postal address with postal code, fax number, and e-mail address (if the authors work in different institutions, their names and addresses must be given using numbers). Next, experimental articles contain an abstract (at most 8 lines), keywords (no more than 8–10), a short introduction and the goal of the research, a discussion of the results, an experimental section, references, and figures. Articles have the following section headings: Keywords, Experimental, and References.
Short communications do not have an abstract, keywords, and experimental section.
All pages including tables and figures should be numbered and submitted in a single file.
An article must be endorsed by all authors. An asterisk (*) must indicate the corresponding author and his/her address (e-mail) and telephone number.
Latin names of plants and microorganisms (Italic) should be followed.
All newly isolated or synthesized compounds should be named according to IUPAC nomenclature. Numbers must be used to denote compounds that are repeated in the article text. Formulas of compounds are enumerated with Arabic numbers (Bold). All physical quantities should be given in SI units. Decimal quantities should have a period and not a comma between the whole number and the fraction.
3. Manuscript format requirements
3.1. All text, tables, and formulas in them (except for point 3.5) should be typed only in Times New Roman font with 1.5 spacing and size 12 in Microsoft Word for Windows word processor. Text should be typed in one column on the whole page without right justification and without hyphenation of words, using all necessary fonts, Normal, Bold, or Italic, and superscripts and subscripts.
3.2. The number of figures should be held to a minimum.
Structural formulas are included in the text.
Inclusion of identical structural formulas and those of known compounds is not allowed. If reactions are described in the text, then formulas for reagents should not be given in the schemes (over arrows). Graphics files of figures should be supplied in jpg, cdr (graphics drawn using CorelDRAW), or xls (Microsoft Excel) format. Labels of coordinate axes and all legends should be given in Latin scripts. Dimensions of quantities on coordinate axes are usually set off by a comma (C, mol L–1; cm–1). Wordy legends should be avoided. Curves in figures should be numbered using Arabic numerals that are explained in the captions to figures.
The location of the corresponding figure is noted in the text. The figure format should be clear enough to show all details. Data that can be summarized briefly in a table or the text (frequencies, absorption maxima, chemical shifts, etc.) and general spectra that do not have special significance should not be shown as figures.
