Guidelines to Authors

Terms of References (TORs)

a. Abstract Review and Selection Process

Abstract Review

All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by reviewing committee. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.

Notification of Acceptance or Rejection to Corresponding Author

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author by 15 March 2020. Please note that only the corresponding author will receive mail concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all co-authors of the status of the abstract. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive instructions for the presentation of their abstract

Rule of One

Each presenting author may present only one oral abstract in a session. The number of submissions is however not limited. Should an author have more than one abstract accepted for oral presentation, a co- author must be named as presenting author for such abstracts. The Rule of One does not apply to poster presentations.


b. Policies for Abstract Submission

Copyright Policy

Abstracts should not include libelous or defamatory content. Material presented in abstracts should not violate any copyright laws. If figures/graphics/images have been taken from sources not copyrighted by the author, it is the author's sole responsibility to secure the rights from the copyright holder in writing to reproduce those figures/graphics/images for both worldwide print and web publication. All reproduction costs charged by the copyright holder must be borne by the author.

Resubmission Policy

An abstract which has been previously published or presented at a national, regional or international conference can only be submitted provided that there are new methods, new findings, updated information or other valid reasons for submitting that can be provided by the author. If preliminary or partial data has been published or presented, the author is required to indicate the details of the publication or presentation as well as the reasons for submitting the abstract to the 3rd International Conference on Chemistry (ICC) April 21-22, 2020. This information will be considered by the review committee when making final decisions.

If the author neglects to indicate the details of when and where the preliminary or partial data has been published or presented, and the reasons for resubmitting (new methods, new findings, substantially updated information or other valid reasons), and if evidence of previous publication or presentation is found, the abstract will be rejected.

Plagiarism

The conference organizers regard plagiarism as serious professional misconduct. All abstracts are screened for plagiarism, and when identified, the abstract and any other abstracts submitted by the same author are rejected.


c. Submission Requirements

The format of paper should be as follows:

  • Title (in sentence case)

  • Abstract of no more than 300 words / 2500 characters. Construct an abstract using the mnemonic M.M.R.C.:
    o Motivation – what problem did you study and why is it important?
    o Method – what methods did you use?
    o Results – what were your principal results?
    o Conclusions – what conclusions have you drawn from your results?

  • Images – up to 2. An image is required. Each image reduces the abstract word limit by 70 words / 560 characters.

  • List of co-authors with correct names (with middle initials, if applicable), affiliations (department, institution, city, state and country) and email addresses.

  • Body of work can be submitted only once.

  • You do not need to include references (but may do so if you have space).

  • A standard font, e.g. Times new roman, should be used when formatting the text. This helps to prevent special characters from getting lost when copying the text to the online abstract submission form. Ensure to check the final abstract with the system's preview function before submission, and edit or replace as necessary.

  • Poster presenters submit a one-page 150-word abstract with a graphic electronically to email: chemconference@lgu.edu.pk.


*The research papers must be original in accordance with the plagiarism policy.
