ONLINE MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION
Authors are requested to electronically submit their papers to this journal for evaluation and submission at https://bentham.manuscriptpoint.com/journals/tocmj / View Submission Instructions. The Manuscript Processing System (MPS) has been designed to ensure step-by-step online processing and tracking of manuscripts for authors, editors, and the publisher from submission to acceptance and final reproduction.
This website will guide the authors through each stage of the submission process. The text, tables, and artwork should be uploaded at (https://bentham.manuscriptpoint.com/journals/tocmj) in electronic format by the authors. However, the authors who are unable to provide an electronic version or who are facing other difficulties must contact the editorial office by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any alternatives. Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will unfortunately not be taken into consideration.
Manuscripts must be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript and should not be submitted by anyone on their behalf. The principal/corresponding author will be required to submit a copyright letter along with the manuscript on behalf of all the co-authors (if any). The author(s) will confirm that the manuscript (or any part of it) has not been published previously or is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Furthermore, any illustration, structure, or table that has been published elsewhere must be reported, and copyright permission for reproduction must be obtained.
FREE FORMAT SUBMISSION
The author's time is valuable and should not be wasted on research formatting. Free Format Submission makes it easier and faster to prepare text for submission.
When submitting to any Bentham journal, authors are not required to follow any formatting guidelines. When an article is accepted for publication, authors can submit it in the format of their choice, and Bentham will convert it into a journal-specific format for them.
If the submission is accepted for publication, Bentham will format it in accordance with the style and format of the journal.
For all online submissions, please provide soft copies of all the materials (main text in MS Word or Tex/LaTeX), figures/illustrations in TIFF, PDF or JPEG, and chemical structures drawn in ChemDraw (CDX) / ISISDraw (TGF) as separate files, while a PDF version of the entire manuscript must also be included, embedded with all the figures/illustrations/tables/chemical structures etc. It is advisable that the document files related to a manuscript submission should always have the name of the corresponding author as part of the file name, i.e., "Cilli MS text.doc", "Cilli MS Figure 1", etc.
It is imperative that before submission, authors should carefully proofread the files for special characters, mathematical symbols, Greek letters, equations, tables, references and images to ensure that they appear in a proper format.
References, figures, tables, chemical structures, etc., should be referred to in the text at the appropriate place where they have been first discussed. Figure legends/captions should also be provided.
Successful electronic submission of a manuscript will be followed by system-generated acknowledgements to the principal/corresponding author. Any queries therein should be addressed to email@example.com
