Note that CCR adopted the larger, two-column format similar to JACS and Dalton, from January 2003. A page contains about 950 words or equivalent. Please 'aim' for 9500 - 15000 words.

Articles should be reviews rather than 'original' papers containing previously unpublished work, i.e. they would not contain an Experimental section

Guidelines for Manuscript Preparation can be found at
Guide for CCR at Elsevier site
In addition note:
Provide an Abstract and Keywords
Create headings and sub-headings according to: 1, 1.1, 2, 2.1, 2.1.1 etc.
Provide a Table of Contents (of the aforesaid headings)
If appropriate, provide a list of Abbreviations.
Figures should be sized so as to be clearly legible when set in one column width.
Figure legends should have reference citations, where appropriate, e.g. a reference to a crystal structure.

We prefer to have individual graphics files of the final production document (rather than embedded graphics).
Take the amount of space you need to deal with the topic in hand but the article should preferably not exceed 15 printed pages.
When supplying revised post-referee versions, it is useful to include the version number and date in the header line- also remember to include page numbers !
CCR bibliography:
A. B. Smith, R. N. Other, Can. J. Chem. 45 (2006) 456. (No italic, No bold, initials first)
Thank you
If you use figures from previous publications, please be advised that you should obtain the necessary copyright permission from the senior author and publisher of the previous publication. The legend should then state that the "figure was reproduced from ref. [], with permission of the copyright holders ".

The initial submission for refereeing can be a pdf file with incorporated figures - this may speed up the referee process. In the final version the high quality original figures should be provided as separate files. Please ensure that the lettering, numbering, axis labels etc. on figures will be legible when reduced to one column width size in the new CCR format (similar to Dalton or JACS). Graphics:
General Information
Information concerning the creation of graphics can be found at:
CCR Gateway and click on Artwork
Note regarding use of Color in Figures:
Color figures will be reproduced free of charge on the Web version of your paper. Please avoid using color in the printed version unless it is essential for proper comprehension of the graphic. If so, please contact the Editor; normally a charge will be requested for printed color figures. However the Editor has a very limited budget to provide some free color where it is essential.

SUPPLEMENTARY DATA Supplementary data files will be hosted alongside the online version of an article, within ScienceDirect. The presence of these files will be signified by a footnote to the article title, and within the text of the paper.
Supplementary data files allow authors to go beyond what previously could be published (in terms either of limitations of format or space) and make available a wide variety of files, to support and enhance their papers.
Supplementary data files can include:
Application-specific formats (eg Adobe Acrobat Portable document format)
High-resolution images (eg JPEG)
Background datasets (eg Excel)
Movies and animation sequences (eg MPEG)
Sound clips (MP3)
Extensive tabulated data such has IR frequencies, crystal data etc
For full details on the formats of supplementary data files that Elsevier can support, please go to
click on Artwork instructions, then Multimedia files.

Suggestions for reviewers for your contribution, are welcome. Submission of a pdf file complete with graphics can speed up the reviewing process. However the final revised version must be in the native word processed format

Thank you
