See more information about these article types Communications Urgent accounts of highly-important new research. No strict page limit but generally up to five journal pages in length. Research findings should be presented in a succinct and informative way, emphasising the importance and potential impact of the research.
Authors are particularly encouraged to prepare a title and abstract which concisely summarise the key findings of their research and their importance, avoiding the use of non-standard abbreviations, acronyms and symbols, as this will enable potential readers to quickly understand the significance of the research.
The table of contents graphic should give the reader a clear indication of the topic of the study, eg by showing key compounds.
Full papers Full accounts of important original research. Full papers may be an expansion of work previously published in a Communication; however, the new work reported must represent a significant extension on what was previously published.
The importance and potential impact of the research should be emphasised. Reviews Concise and critical reviews of important or emerging topics in organic chemistry.
Easy to read and covering current areas of interest, rather than comprehensive reviews of the literature.
Journal specific guidelines The following guidelines are journal specific. Data and supporting information Characterisation of compounds OBC has minimum characterisation data requirements for i new compounds, and ii known compounds that have been synthesised by a new method.
These requirements are described below. There is no requirement to provide characterisation data for the synthesis of a known compound by a literature method; in these cases authors should provide a literature reference to previously-published characterisation data for that compound.
However, authors are welcome to provide details of improved experimental protocols, more detailed characterisation data, or selected data from known compounds. Organic compounds Data required for both new compounds and known compounds synthesised by a new method Copies of 1H NMR spectra which contain no more than trace peaks that are not assigned to the structure in question should be supplied as supplementary material.
Spectra should be of high resolution and displayed in landscape, ideally with one spectrum per page. Data required for new compounds only in addition to the data specified above It is the responsibility of authors to provide fully convincing evidence for the homogeneity, purity and identity of all compounds they claim as new.
This evidence is required to establish that the properties and constants reported are those of the compound with the new structure claimed. Referees will assess, as a whole, the evidence presented in support of the claims made by the authors.
The following are required in all cases: Complete numerical listings of 1H,13C NMR peaks in support of the assigned structure Copies of 13C NMR spectra containing no more than trace peaks that are not assigned to the structure in question as supplementary material.
Spectra should be of high resolution and displayed in landscape, ideally with one spectrum per page High resolution mass spectroscopy The following are required in specific cases: In cases where this is not available, a statement as to why this cannot be supplied should be included in the manuscript.
For closely related structures assignment by analogy is acceptable if the configuration of one compound in the series is unambiguously assigned In a small number of cases some of the characterisation techniques which are normally required for new organic compounds may not be applicable or possible to obtain for example, for some supramolecular systems.
In these circumstances the evidence for identity and purity will be judged on a case-by-case basis by the editor and referees. In all cases LC-MS or equivalent data for example, HPLC data plus MS data on collected peaks should be supplied for key synthetic intermediates, and as evidence of purity and identity of the final compound.
Additional data, such as high field 1H,13C NMR, X-ray crystallography or sequencing data for proteins and oligonucleotides may be provided if available. In some cases authors may be required to provide some of this additional data if it is thought necessary by the referees. For new derivatives comprising modified monomers, the usual organic chemistry analytical requirements for the novel monomer must be provided see Organic compounds.
It is not however necessary to provide this level of characterisation for the oligomer into which the novel monomer is incorporated. Computational work Papers which report QM work should include, as a minimum atomic coordinates as. Where computational work is included as part of a synthetic study, theoretical characterization for example, computational NMR, VCD of products and important synthetic intermediates is appropriate for inclusion on its own.
Title The title should be short and straightforward to appeal to a general reader, but detailed enough to properly reflect the contents of the article.
