Call for Papers: Launch of two new Orbital sections
The Editors of Orbital: The Electronic Journal of Chemistry are pleased to announce the launch of two new sections:
- Tutorial Reviews
- Orbital Bios
Tutorial Reviews: Destinated especially to graduate and undergraduate students, tutorial reviews explore important topics in chemistry, physics, both or any pertinent area. It should serve as a first reference for anyone who is new to a specific research field. It is destinated to offer the first instruction about this field. Tutorial reviews are normally published after invitation, but Orbital editorial board will study tutorial reviews proposals.
Tutorial reviews should contain the seminal papers or at least those at the origins of the theme, its most important references as well as a short description of changes, improvements and consequences for chemistry. It should contain no more than 100 references and preferably no more than 15000 words. Specialist terms or what one would call “jargon” should be avoided or at least explained very clearly. It should contain a short abstract presenting the main interest of the topic for all the audiences.
Orbital Bios: Orbital bios is a space dedicated to honor our great chemists, alive or not, Brazilian or not, for their accomplishments and their contribution to the development of Chemistry in Brazil. Bios should be no longer than 4000 words and contain pictures preferably. They should present the main achievements of the biographed scientist and how these contributions reverberated in the academy and in society. His/her scientific lineage should be presented too. Orbital will welcome names suggestions and will contact close people of the nominees to write these biographies.
Both sections are now welcoming submissions. Submit your manuscript here
