The Asian Journal of Green Chemistry (Asian J. Green Chem.) is published quarterly in 2017. Contributions from all fields of basic sciences may be submitted by scientists from all over the world (Based on 12 Principles of Green Chemistry). 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 Asian J. Green Chem. Manuscripts will be considered for publication in the form of articles, preliminary communications, notes and review articles. The work should be original or a through review by an authoritative person in a pertinent field.
Screening and initial selection of articles (Research Policy)
Screening and initial selection of articles is done in 2 to 3 days by the Editor-Chief of the journal. Then, the article sent to a specialized editor and he/she can select the appoints a reviewers. The reviewers must review the article within 24 days and send their comments to the specialized editor. The editor reviews the Reviewer's comments and sends them to the Editor-in-Chief.

It is important to have a reasonable and defensible copyright and permissions policies in order to protect the rights of the authors and societies whom we serve. It is a condition of publication that, on acceptance of the article by the journal editor, copyright must be assigned to the publisher. An Assignment of Copyright Form will be issued with author proofs or can be downloaded from an individual journal’s instructions for authors.

The template is only intended to be used in assisting with the preparation and submission of manuscripts. It should be noted that the use of the journal template is not a requirement and its adoption will neither speed nor delay publication.
Manuscripts for Original Research Papers submitted to the Asian Journal of Green Chemistry should be divided into the following sections:
- Authors' Names and Affiliations
- Graphical abstract
- Results and Discussion
The title should be concise and accurately reflect the content. The title should capture important keywords.
Author names and affiliations
Please clearly indicate the given first name(s) and surname(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled.
The names and addresses of the institution(s) where the work was performed should be listed immediately below the author names.
The name of the corresponding author(s) should be marked with an asterisk (*) and provide his or her e-mail address on this page 1.
Author affiliations should include complete information, including institution, department, city and country.
The abstract should be a clear, concise, one-paragraph synopsis (100–300 words) and placed directly after the title and author information. It should indicate the subject and scope of the review, listing the major topics covered, as well as the overall objectives. The abstract should be self-contained for direct use in Chemical Abstracts or other secondary services.
The keyword should be a maximum of 3-6 keywords.
The graphical abstract is mandatory for this journal. It should summarize the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership online. Authors must provide images that clearly represent the work described in the article. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the online submission system. Image size: please provide an image with a minimum of 531 × 1328 pixels (h × w) or proportionally more. The image should be readable at a size of 5 × 13 cm.
The Introduction, usually one or two manuscript pages, should state precisely the purpose and goals of the review and its scope and limitations, as well as the years of literature covered. Historical material and references to earlier pertinent reviews, as well as a limited amount of material of personal or anecdotal nature, may be included. Date and location of the research carried out throughout the study must be mentioned at the end of this section.
The experimental section should provide enough information to permit repetition of the experimental work. It should include clear descriptions and explanations of sampling procedures, experimental design, and essential sample characteristics and descriptive statistics, hypothesis tested, exact references to literature describing the tests used in the manuscript, number of data involved in statistical tests, etc. Authors must emphasize any unexpected, new, and/ or significant hazards or risks associated with the reported work. This information should be in the experimental details section of the full article or communication.
Results and Discussion
The Results section should describe the outcome of the study. Data should be presented as concisely as possible - if appropriate in the form of tables or figures, although very large tables should be avoided. The Discussion should be an interpretation of the results and their significance with reference to work by other authors. Please note that the policy of the Journal with respect to units and symbols is that of SI symbols.
Do not submit tables and graphs as photograph. Tables should be set within the text. Do not use internal horizontal and vertical rules. Tables should be set within the text and should have a clear and rational structure along with consecutive numerical order. All tables should be numbered (1, 2, 3, etc.). Give enough information in subtitles so that each table is understandable without reference to the text. For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table. Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption. Tables should be with the captions placed above in limited numbers.
Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.
Figures/ illustrations should be in high quality art work, within 200-300 dpi and provided in the text. Ensure that figures are clear, labeled, and of a size that can be reproduced legibly in the journal. Figures should be set within the text. Following remarks should be applied to the figures:
- Each Figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file.
- Figure captions begin with the term Fig. Figures should be with the captions placed below in limited numbers.
- No punctuation is to be placed at the end of the caption.
- Identify all elements found in the figure in the figure caption; and use boxes, circles, etc., as coordinate points in graphs.
- Identify previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.
This section should highlight the major, firm discoveries, and state what the added value of the main finding is, without literature references.
- References are mentioned consecutively in order of appearance in the text.
- All references referred to in the text are included in the list of references.
- The references cited are current and up-to-date.
- All references are formatted according to the style of the journal (Harvard style).
- Personal communications or unpublished observations, if really needed, are not included as references.
- The number of references in the review paper preferred to be not contain less than 120; for original research paper or case report not less than 40 and for short communication 20 references are required.
- The majority of manuscript references must not be extracted from a single journal. The acceptable average can be indicated at most 5 references from each journal.
-References should be included using the format described in below:
