All manuscripts submitted for publication in Chemical and Process
Engineering must comprise a description of original research that has
neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.
The content, aim and scope of the proposals should comply with the main
subject of the journal, i.e. they should deal with mathematical
modelling and/or experimental investigations on momentum, heat and mass
transfer, unit processes and operations, integrated processes,
biochemical engineering, statics and kinetics of chemical reactions. The
experiments and modelling may cover different scales and processes
ranging from the molecular phenomena up to production systems. The
journal language is grammatically correct British English.
Chemical and Process Engineering publishes: i) full text research
articles, ii) invited reviews, iii) letters to the editor and iv) short
communications, aiming at important new results and/or applications.
Each of the publication form is peer-reviewed by at least two
Submission of materials for publication
The manuscripts are submitted for publication via e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
When writing the manuscript, authors should preferably use the template
Proposals of a paper should be uploaded using the Internet site of the
journal and should contain:
a manuscript file in Word format (*.doc, *.docx),
the manuscript mirror in PDF format,
all graphical figuresin separate graphics files.
In the following paragraphthe general guidelines for the manuscript
preparation are presented.
Title of paper
Names (first name and further initials) and surnames of
Address(es) of authors
Information about the corresponding author; academic title,
name and surname, email address, address for correspondence
Abstract – should contain a short summary of
the proposed paper. In the maximum of 200 words the authors
should present the main assumptions, results and conclusions
drawn from the presented study.
Keywords– Up to 5 characteristic keyword items
should be provided.
Introduction. In this part, description of motivation for
the study and formulation of the scientific problem should
be included and supported by a concise review of recent
Main text. It should contain all important elements of the
scientific investigations, such as presentation of
experimental rigs, mathematical models, results and their
discussion. This part may be divided into subchapters.
Conclusions. The major conclusions can be put forward in
concise style in a separate chapter. Presentation of
conclusions from the reported research work accompanied by a
short commentary is also acceptable.
Figures: drawings, diagrams and photographs can be in colour
and should be located in appropriate places in the manuscript
text. Their graphical form should be of vector or raster type
with the minimum resolution of 900 dpi. In addition, separate
files containing each of the drawings, graphs and photos
should be uploaded onto the journal Web site in one of the
following formats: bmp, gif, tiff, jpg, eps. Due to rigid
editorial reasons, graphical elements created within MS Word
and Excel are not acceptable. The final length of figures
should be intended typically for 8 cm (single column) or 16 cm
in special cases of rich-detail figures. The basic font size
of letters in figures should be at least 10 pts after
adjusting graphs to the final length.
Figures: drawings, diagrams and photographs should be in gray
scale. In case of coloured graphs or photo an additional
payment of 300 PLN (72 €) per 1 page containing coloured
figures on both sides, or 150 PLN (36 €) per page containing
coloured figures on one side will be required.
Tables should be made according to the format shown in the
All figures and tables should be numbered and provided with
appropriate title and legend, if necessary. They have to be
properly referenced to and commented in the text of the manuscript.
List of symbols should be accompanied by their
Acknowledgements may be included before the
list of literature references
The method of quoting literature source in the manuscript depends on the
number of its authors:
single author – their surname and year of publication should be given,
e.g. Marquardt (1996) or (Marquardt, 1996),
two authors – the two surnames separated by the conjunction “and” with
the publication year should be given, e.g. Charpentier and McKenna
(2004) or (Charpentier and McKenna, 2004),
three and more authors – the surname of the first author followed by
the abbreviation “et al.” and year of publication should be given,
e.g. Bird et al. (1960) or (Bird et al., 1960).
In the case of citing more sources in one bracket, they should be listed
in alphabetical order using semicolon for separation, e.g. (Bird et al.,
1960; Charpentier and McKenna, 2004; Marquardt, 1996). Should more
citations of the same author(s) and year appear in the manuscript then
letters “a, b, c, ...” should be successively applied after the
Bibliographic data of the quoted literature should be arranged at the
end of the manuscript text in alphabetic order of surnames of the first
author. It is obligatory to indicate the DOI number of those literature
items, which have the numbers already assigned. Journal titles should be
specified by typingtheir right abbreviationsor, in case of doubts,
according to the List of Title Word Abbreviations available at http://www.issn.org/2-22661-LTWA-online.php.

Starting from 2014 a principle of publishing articles against payment is
introduced, assuming non-profit making editorial office. According to
the principle authors or institutions employing them, will have to cover
the expenses amounting to 40 PLN (or 10 €) per printed page. The above
amount will be used to supplement the limited financial means received
from the Polish Academy of Sciences for the editorial and publishing;
and in particular to increase the capacity of the next CPE volumes and
to proofread the linguistic correctness of the articles. The method of
payment will be indicated in an invoice sent to the authors or
institutions after acceptance of their manuscripts to be published. In
justifiable cases presented in writing, the editorial staff may decide
to relieve authors from basic payment, either partially or fully. All
correspondence should be sent to Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Andrzej K. Biń,
email address: email@example.com.
