Screening and initial selection of articles (Research Policy)

Screening and initial selection of articles is done in 2 to 3 days by the Editor-Chief of the journal. Then, the article sent to a specialized editor and he/she can select the appoints a reviewers. The reviewers must review the article within 24 days and send their comments to the specialized editor. The editor reviews the Reviewer's comments and sends them to the Editor-in-Chief.

General Information

Chemical Methodologies (Chem. Methodol.) was launched in 2017 by Sami Publishing Company with cooperation "Iranian Chemical Science and Technologies Association". This double peer-reviewed and indexed journal aim to provide a platform for researchers around the world to share their latest findings in all field of Chemistry. Experimental, theoretical, and applied original research studies in all fields of chemistry are welcomed for submission. The journal is Open Access with article processing charges (250 $ per article) and all articles published in this journal are freely available for readers online at http://chemmethod.com/ without a subscription and authors retain the copyright of their work.
