Manuscript Type: Minireviews Revised Version

Please only use the form below if you have been explicitly asked by the editorial office not to use Editorial Manager (for example, because a decision was already made) or if Editorial Manager is unavailable.

Reviewer Instructions

A Minireview (up to 40000 characters) should present topics of high current interest in any area of chemistry in a concise review style. Minireviews offer the flexibility to treat topics at a time, and in a suitable manner, when a Review would still be premature or inappropriate. Rather than an assembly of detailed information with a complete literature survey, a critically selected treatment of the material is desired; unsolved problems and possible developments should also be discussed. Minreviews should be divided into numbered sections. Cross-references in the text should also use these section numbers. The Minireview should include a lead-in (1000 characters, no references), which should stimulate the readers? interest. The Introduction should primarily introduce the nonspecialist to the subject in as clear a way as possible. A Minireview should conclude with a section entitled Summary and Outlook, in which the achievements of and new challenges for the subject are presented succinctly.

Referee Recommendation

Referees should give an overall recommendation as to whether a manuscript should be published without, with minor, or with major alterations, or should be rejected.

Please formulate the comments for the authors in a polite form, even when heavy criticism is being delivered.

Minor alterations include:

Major alterations include:

Manuscripts that require major alterations will usually be re-evaluated by the referee(s).

Manuscripts that cannot be accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie could perhaps be acceptable after minor or major improvements—either without further refereeing at all or after further refereeing by the same referees—for publication in one of Angewandte Chemie's sister journals.

To help us assess the paper we request that you answer the following questions:

1. Please rate the importance of the revised manuscript

2. Please rate the length of the revised manuscript

Overall a Minireview should not be of more than 40000 characters, including footnotes, literature citations, tables, and legends.

3. Are further changes/additions required

Please include any comments for the further improvements in the "Comments to Author" box.

4. Please indicate whether you have included attachments

If you have information that is relevant to the comments and recommendation you have made, this can be sent either as an attachment for the Handling Editor or for the Author. Where the attachment is for the author, please ensure that any formulations or file information will not give away your identity.

Manuscript number

1. Please rate the importance of the revised manuscript [help]

Question 1

  • Very important, wide interest for both specialists and nonspecialists
  • Highly important
  • Important, for the wider field of chemistry, but not suitable for Angewandte Chemie
  • Too specialized, should be published in a sister journal
  • Not important, should be submitted elsewhere

2. Please rate the length of the revised manuscript [help]

Question 2

Overall a Review should not be of more than 40000 characters, including footnotes, literature citations, tables, and legends.

  • Concise and correct length
  • Too long; contains unnecessary information
  • Too short; requires additional information

3. Are further changes/additions required [help]

Question 3

  • No
  • Yes, see Comments to Author. Please include any comments for the further improvement of the paper in the "Comments to Author" box.
