Manuscript Type: Viewpoints

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

Viewpoints are opinion-based contributions used to give an Author?s own thoughts on important developments in a specific area and the implications for future research. Viewpoints may be controversial, and while the Author should put forward their own point of view, they should not ignore the counter arguments but rather refute them through discussion. Viewpoints should include a short Abstract (600–800 characters) that succinctly describes the context and the point of view being presented. Viewpoints should be not more than 20000 characters, including references, tables, and legends. The conservative use of schemes and figures is recommended. The final paragraph or section of a Viewpoint should summarize the motivation behind the Viewpoint and the core conclusions arising from the discussion put forward.

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).

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

1. Please rate the current interest of the topic to chemists

Naturally, the judgment of the importance of a paper is to a certain extent subjective. Please note, we are asking for an evaluation of the importance only with regard to publication in Angewandte Chemie. Thus, a paper can be considered to be very important or highly important for a broad and heterogeneous readership and is thus suitable for publication in Angewandte Chemie or it may be "only" important to a particular area and thus is more suitable for journals catering to a more specific audience.

2. Please rate the citation of previous publications

3. Please rate the length of the manuscript

Viewpoints should have not more than 20000 characters.

4. Please rate the critical selection of presented content

5. Please rate the didactic presentation of the content

6. 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.
