Focus and Scope

Indonesian Journal of Fundamental and Applied Chemistry (IJFAC) is an an international research journal and invites contributions of original research articles as well as review articles in several areas of chemistry.  The journal aims to publish refereed, high-quality research papers with significant novelty and short communications in all branches of chemistry. Papers which describe novel theory and its application to practice are welcome, as are those which illustrate the transfer of techniques from other disciplines.

IJFAC calls for papers that cover the following fields:

Inorganic Chemistry field received articles in the area of fundamental studies in all phases of inorganic chemistry. Coverage includes experimental and theoretical reports on quantitative studies of structure and thermodynamics, kinetics, mechanisms of inorganic reactions, bioinorganic chemistry, and relevant aspects of organometallic chemistry, solid-state phenomena, and chemical bonding theory.

Organic chemistry field received articles from the entire spectrum of synthetic organic, bioorganic, physical-organic chemistry, and natural products.

Biochemistry field received articles in a range of scientific disciplines, including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine which was studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles.

Physical chemistry received articles in a broad scope which includes spectroscopy, dynamics, kinetics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, catalysis, surface science, quantum mechanics and theoretical developments. Interdisciplinary research areas related with physical chemistry are welcomed.

Analytical chemistry received articles new and original knowledge in all branches of analytical chemistry. Articles may be entirely theoretical with regard to analysis, or they may report experimental results. They may contribute to any phase of analytical operations, including sampling, bioanalysis, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, microscale and nanoscale systems and structures, environmental analysis, separations, spectroscopy, chemical reactions and selectivity, instrumentation, imaging, surface analysis, and data processing. In this term, environmental chemistry is included.

Applied chemistry area received articles inter-disciplinary chemistry and related field with the application of scientific discoveries and advancements in chemical and biological technology that aim towards economically and environmentally sustainable industrial processes.

Peer Review Process

All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. If approved by the editor, submissions will be considered by double-blind peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors. If your article is based on a conference article which may have been published elsewhere, it is important that you observe the following:

The submitted article must have been substantially revised, expanded and rewritten so that it is significantly different from the conference paper or presentation on which it is based. The article must be sufficiently different to make it a new, original work. As a guide, you should aim to have more than 50% new material. This is a matter of judgment and will be based on a comparison of the submitted article with the original conference paper.

The original conference article should be supplied by the author of the expanded article for the purpose of comparison. All such articles will be subject to the same review process as any other submitted article. Please include the statement 'This article is a revised and expanded version of an article entitled [title] presented at [name location and date of conference]' in the online system when you submit your article, using the "Notes for the Editor" field.

If the original conference article on which the extended article is based has been published elsewhere, or the copyright has been assigned to the conference organizers or another party, authors should ensure that they have cleared any necessary permissions with the copyright owners. Articles will not be accepted, post-review, for publication unless such written permissions have been provided along with author copyright forms.
