Reviewer Instructions

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.

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 ChemNanoMat 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 ChemNanoMat's sister journals.
In the event of rejection, referees can recommend a different journal under "5. Please indicate which other journal you consider more appropriate". This procedure should have benefits for both Authors and Reviewers by facilitating the publication process.

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

1. Please rate the importance of the reported results

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 ChemNanoMat. Thus, a paper can be considered to be very important or important for a broad and heterogeneous readership and is thus suitable for publication in ChemNanoMat. A highly specialized paper might not be important for ChemNanoMat but only for a specific area of materials chemistry.
Based on our experience, we anticipate that:

The top 10% of the submitted manuscripts are very important:

Another 20% of the submitted manuscripts are important:

Question 1

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 ChemNanoMat. Thus, a paper can be considered to be very important or important for a broad and heterogeneous readership and is thus suitable for publication in ChemNanoMat. A highly specialized paper might not be important for ChemNanoMat but only for a specific area of materials chemistry.

  • Very important (top 10% of Full Papers)
  • Important (next 20% of Full Papers)
  • Important but too specialized for the wider field of materials chemistry
  • Less important, should be submitted elsewhere
  • Minor, is not publishable in this form

2. Please rate the citation of previous publications [help]

Question 2

  • Appropriate; relevant prior work is cited and discussed
  • Insufficient; relevant prior work has been overlooked or is not discussed appropriately
  • Superfluous; many papers with low relevance to the current study have been cited

3. Please rate the length of the manuscript [help]

Question 3

Full Papers have no length restrictions. However, the space should be used thoughtfully and economically (e.g., additional experimental data should be placed in the Supporting Information).

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

4. Please rate the verification of hypotheses and conclusions by the presented data [help]

Question 4

Assumptions and hypotheses brought forward in a manuscript must be in accord with the experimental and/or theoretical results. All new compounds and materials must be fully characterized by appropriate analytical methods. These data should be given in the Supporting Information in the event that they exceed the scope of the Experimental Section.

  • Fully consistent and accurate
  • Minor inconsistencies or inaccuracies
  • Major inconsistencies or inaccuracies

5. Please indicate which other journal(s) you consider more appropriate (optional) [help]
