Aims and Scope

ActaChemia is an international journal which publishes original research paper and reviews in broad chemistry including but not limited to
1-Aspects of mass spectrometry and ion processes, including instrumental developments and applications in biology, chemistry, geology and physics. 
2-Pure and applied plant chemistry, plant biochemistry and molecular biology. 
3-Primary metabolism and regulation of plant growth, through plantenzymology to natural product chemistry and the biological activity of plant products 
4-Comparative biochemistry of plants. These may range from distributional studies on low molecular weight compounds in a group of fungi, algae or higher plants to the comparative amino acid sequences of related proteins within groups of species.
 5-Chemistry of the main group elements and the d- and f-block metals, including the synthesis, characterization and reactivity of coordination, organometallic, biomimetic, supramolecular coordination compounds, including associated computational studies; 
6-Synthesis, physico-chemical properties, applications of molecule-based nano-scaled clusters and nanomaterials designed using the principles of coordination chemistry, as well as coordination polymers (CPs), metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), metal-organic polyhedra (MPOs); 
7-Reaction mechanisms and physico-chemical investigations computational studies of metalloenzymes and their models; 
8-Protein Biochemistry where in purification of proteins directly from the organism or by heterologous expression. These will preferentially include information on enzymological properties, macromolecular structure and exploration of function, by site-directed mutagenesis and/or subcellular localization. 
9-Molecular Genetics and Genomics papers on nucleic acid biochemistry, function and expression. This section will contain reports of genes andtheir analysis and expression, which demonstrate novelty and/or biological significance. Papers and communications that contain only sequence data or which duplicate studies of gene expression in other species will not generally be acceptable.
10-Ecological Biochemistry section contains papers on biochemical adaptations in plants to environmental stress; pollination biochemistry; plant toxins and their effects on animals, phytoecdysones, antifeedants; herbivory, plant defence and insect feeding preferences; utilization of plant substances by animals; and all aspects of biochemical plant pathology, including the production of phytotoxins and phytoalexin elicitation. Contributions on various symbiotic interactions are also welcomed.
11- Computational and theoretical chemistryincluding those that deal with problems of structure, properties, energetics, weak interactions, reaction mechanisms, catalysis, and reaction rates involving atoms, molecules, clusters, surfaces, and bulk matter 12-Bioactive Products section contains papers on novel plant chemistry, where the biological activities of one or more of the new plant compounds are described. Descriptions of possible pharmacological, medical or therapeutic use or of dietary significance are encouraged if known. This section may also contain analysis of genetically modified plants that have been analysed for changes in their profiles of bioactive plant products. Such bioassay data should include comparable results for a known agent, so that the reader can judge the relative importance of any new finding.
13-Growth substances, macromolecules, primary metabolites, terpenoids, polyketides, phenylpropanoids, flavonoids, alkaloids and compounds of mixed biosynthetic origin. Authors investigating the chemistry of a given plant species should aim to publish their results in a single manuscript rather than in a series of papers which describe each new compound as it is found. The structural analysis of new plant substances is now so routine that papers reporting a single novel compound of expectable structure (e.g. a new triterpene fatty acid ester) are rarely acceptable, unless other novel information on the plant is included.

Author

Author Representations 
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co- authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities — tacitly or explicitly — at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Permissions 
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors. 

Online Submission
Authors should submit their manuscripts online via the ASRE website at: http:///www.asre.res.in
Hard copy submissions are no longer accepted. Detail Guidelines can be downloaded here.

Review Policy
All papers submitted to our journals go through a rigorous review process. They are refereed by experts in said field before publication. There exist four possible outcomes for each paper submitted and reviewed: acceptance, acceptance after minor revision, major revision and re-submission, or rejection. This prevents the promulgation of pseudoscience and insures intellectual and scientific integrity of the findings published by SEP. The Editor-in-Chief is the first to see an author's work. They are to forward the paper to experts in the specific field discussed in the paper for review. After review, the Editor-in-Chief of the journal will look over the reviewer's comments. If two reviewers seem to hold opposite opinions of the same paper, the controversy will be resolved by the Editor-in-Chief. Ultimately, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision. The final decision is being one of the aforementioned possibilities: acceptance, acceptance with noted changes, or rejection of paper. We are also looking forward to offering an online journal club for each journal. This will allow a further platform for peer commendation or critique.
