Internet Electronic Journal of Molecular Design is an electronic
journal that publishes original contributions regarding all aspects
of computer-assisted molecular design applications in chemistry,
biochemistry, biology, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, including:
- Computer-aided organic synthesis
- Chemical structure and reactivity investigated with molecular
mechanics, quantum chemistry, and molecular dynamics methods
- Definition, calculation and evaluation of novel structural descriptors
- Chemical database searching, clustering, similarity and diversity measure
- Prediction of physico-chemical properties with Quantitative Structure-Property
- Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (QSAR) models for biological
activity, toxicity, mutagenicity, and carcinogenicity
- Prediction of chromatographic retention parameters and design of stationary
phases for chromatography
- Modeling of bioorganic compounds, such as proteins, enzymes, and nucleic acids
- New algorithms for modeling chemical and biochemical phenomena, such as
global optimization methods, simulated annealing, neural networks, genetic
algorithms, ant colony algorithm
- Design of special materials, catalysts, high energy compounds, polymers,
Only original papers are considered for publication in the Internet
Electronic Journal of Molecular Design. Submission of an article is understood to imply
that it has not previously been published in any language, that it is not considered for
publication elsewhere, and that if accepted for publication it will not be published elsewhere.
Manuscripts are accepted on the understanding that the authors have obtained
any necessary authority for publication. Authors are solely responsible for the factual
accuracy of their contributions. All authors submitting papers for publication are
required to sign an exclusive copyright license.
The correspondence author must obtain the publication agreement from all other authors.
1 Organization of the Manuscript
The entire manuscript, including mathematical equations, chemical structures, tables,
and figures must be prepared in electronic form and submitted as Word for Windows
files. Use only fonts that come with Windows software. For the text use Times New
Roman size 12. For all special characters (e.g., Greek characters) use the font Symbol.
Use carriage returns only to end headings and paragraphs, not to break lines of text.
Automatic hyphenation should be turned off. Do not insert spaces before punctuation.
Verify the correct spelling for the final version with the Spelling and Grammar
function of Word.
Manuscripts should be written in English.
3 Submission of the Manuscript
The manuscript and supplementary material must be send by the
corresponding author to the Editor in an electronic form as Word for Windows files.
Send all files to email@example.com.
A copyright license form will be provided to the corresponding author
only when a paper is accepted for publication.
Each manuscript is evaluated by at least two referees. Authors may suggest referees as
well as name persons whom they wish to be excluded from the review process. The
anonymity of referees is assured, and a referee should never communicate directly
with an author. A referee must treat as confidential material the manuscript and any
5 Revision of the Manuscript
All comments made by referees must be addressed. A letter describing all changes
that were made should be attached with the revised version of the manuscript. A
copyright license form must accompany the final version of the manuscript.
6 Preprint Option
Any manuscript received for publication in the
Internet Electronic Journal of Molecular Design can be published on the Web as preprint.
All authors submitting a manuscript must clearly indicate that they wish to publish it as a
preprint. The referees appreciate if the manuscript meets the basic requirements for
publication and recommend its publication as preprint. A preprint not accepted for
publication by the referees will be immediately removed from the preprint collection.
A published paper which was previously available as a preprint will have clearly indicated
the date when it was first published on the Web. A work published as preprint can benefit
from comments from the readers which can eventually improve the manuscript. Revised versions
that incorporate corrections from reviewers and suggestions from readers can be also
published as preprints.
7 Publication of the Manuscript
Accepted papers are published as PDF files available at the Web site of
