Types of contributions
The journal publishes original research papers, short communications, tutorials and reviews. Tutorials and reviews are written by invitation of the Editors, who welcome suggestions for subjects. Short communications are usually complete descriptions of limited investigations, and should generally not exceed four printed pages. The journal also participates actively in software dissemination through articles on software developments, software descriptions and reviews of software.
Mathematical papers
The journal publishes papers from all areas of mathematics (including computer science, numerical methods, operations research, probability and statistics) that are clearly written and advance the fields of chemistry and chemometrics. The motivation and results of the paper must be understandable to chemists and chemometricians, but additional sections giving technical details are also welcomed. The level of the papers is expected to be comparable with that of existing professional mathematical science journals.
Software descriptions
The journal invites for publication software descriptions. Emphasis should be laid on the quality, performance and relevance of the software to chemometrics.
These descriptions should contain:
  • a short description of the mathematical or chemical background (if relevant)
  • a sample of the input (if relevant) and the output
  • a description of the configurations on which the software runs
  • key performance figures (number of variables treated, typical running times, etc.)
  • details about how to access the software and its documentation, web page and internet addresses for download
No mention of costs or other commercial details may be made.
Details of the reviewing procedure:
The journal or its editors cannot take on any responsibility for the functioning of the software. At least one review is necessary. The authors must find at least one reviewer, outside their own institute, who will independently implement the software on his/her own computer. His/her declaration that he/she has been able to implement the program and his/her comments about it must be added to the manuscript and his name will be published under the heading "independently tested by". The Editors may require that the program is submitted to a second reviewer if they feel that this is necessary.
Software reviews
The Journal regularly publishes reviews of commercially available software.
Tutorials and reviews
If tutorials and reviews are submitted without prior consultation with the editors, they will be refereed in the usual manner. However, to avoid duplication of material potential authors are advised to submit a synopsis in advance. Acceptance of the synopsis does not commit the editors to acceptance of the article. It does, however, give the author priority in the subject area and assures the author that the subject area is relevant.
Tutorials do not involve original research nor should they present scientific results that have not yet been published. However, novel mathematical ways of approaching chemical problems, putting example data through improved algorithms, and example experiments are acceptable.
