Preparing electronic supplementary information ESI How to write your article On this page you'll find guidance and tips for first-time and experienced authors on writing style and how to structure an article.
These guidelines are relevant to all of our journals. Article types Articles commonly fall into one of three main categories: Full papers, Communications and Reviews. Full papers are original, unpublished primary research. Some journals have page limits for Communications.
Reviews are usually invited by the editor, but a topic may be proposed by an author via the editorial office. All submissions must be in English.
We permit standard English and American spelling in our journals, but please use one or the other consistently within the article itself. You are welcome to use common or standard abbreviations; if your abbreviations are non-standard, please include a definition the first time you use them.
All articles accepted for publication in our journals are edited and typeset to our house style by professional editors: If you would like professional guidance on improving the standard and style of your writing, before submitting your article, we offer a specialist language editing service. This section describes the content to be included in your article.
Note that headings and subheadings are not permitted in articles submitted to ChemComm, although they are permitted in Communications submitted to other journals.
Avoid the use of non-standard abbreviations and symbols; examples follow. Authorship Full names and affiliations for all the authors should be included. Everyone who made a significant contribution to the conception, design or implementation of the work should be listed as co-authors. The corresponding author has the responsibility to include all and only co-authors.
The corresponding author also signs a copyright licence on behalf of all the authors. If there are more than 10 co-authors on the manuscript, the corresponding author should provide a statement to specify the contribution of each co-author.
It is possible to have two corresponding authors.
Abstract The abstract should be a single paragraph 50— words that summarises the content of the article. It will help readers to decide whether your article is of interest to them.
It should set out briefly and clearly the main objectives and results of the work; it should give the reader a clear idea of what has been achieved.
Like your title, make sure you use recognisable, searchable terms and keywords. Introduction An introduction should 'set the scene' of the work. It should clearly explain both the nature of the problem under investigation and its background.
It should start off general and then focus in to the specific research question you are investigating. Ensure you include all relevant references. Experimental You should provide descriptions of the experiments in enough detail so that a skilled researcher is able to repeat them.BEGINNING KOREAN: A GRAMMAR GUIDE DAVID J.

Writers think they know their business when they sit down to compose a new work, and I suppose they do, right up to the moment when the last piece of punctuation gets planted on the final sentence.
