The Advanced Journal of Chemistry-Section A ( Theoretical, Engineering and Applied Chemistry ) is published quarterly in 2018. Contributions from all fields of basic sciences may be submitted by scientists from all over the world. The papers submitted to this journal should not have been published previously, except in the form of a brief preliminary communication, nor submitted to another journal. The decision to accept a contribution rests with the Editorial Committee of the Adv. J. Chem.
