SOAOJ Publishing honourably accepts e-Books that are written by scholars and influence the training practice around the world. The e-Books offer many potential benefits, to access when and where you would like to read. It’s an excellent thanks to demonstrate knowledge in a creative way and is far more visually appealing than a white book. The e-book has become the present standard form to possess the research work available to the users. Juniper offers high-quality PDF formats for our scholars to possess their work available to the planet.
Lightening fast lookup of the specified information can now find through e-books as it’s the hand library available to the users upon one button. SOAOJ offers a high-quality e-print that's viewable on any screen. E-Books are those that every individual can afford, as they're freely available with SOAOJ. E-Books are embedded with a spread of multi-media elements that aren't available with traditional books. Also, audio and video are often implanted to form reading comfortably while accessing the published articles.
The manuscript should be prepared in Microsoft Word. If you want to use a different application, please contact us to discuss this first.
The text should use 2.0pt line-spacing.
Punctuation and spelling must follow standard English practice. The use of either British or American English is acceptable, but must be used consistently.
Standard IUPAC nomenclature must be used.
SI units and symbols must be used.
Abbreviations must be defined at first mention in the chapter and abbreviated thereafter. A list of abbreviations may be provided at the end of the chapter if necessary.
Numbers with five or more digits should have spaces every three digits (eg 10 000, 2 000 000 – commas, eg 10,000, should not be used).  Numbers with five or more decimal places should have spaces every three decimal places (eg 3.141 592 62).
Units should be presented in inverse style (eg m s-1 and not m/s).

Chapter abstract

Each chapter will need a chapter abstract. The abstract is very important in promoting the book content. The abstract:
should be a single paragraph of 50–200 words, briefly summarising the chapter
will be present only in the eBook version of the book, and not the print book (with the exception of the Issues in Environment Science and Technology series and some specialist periodical reports)
must not contain any reference citations, figures or footnotes


The chapter text should be divided into sections with headings, as appropriate.
All main words within a heading should be capitalised.
No full point is needed at the end of a heading.
Acknowledgement and reference sections should be at the end of the chapter, and these headings are not numbered.
Headings should be numbered as follows (where X is the chapter number)*.
X Chapter Title
X.1 Main Section Heading
X.1.1 Sub Section Heading
X.1.1.1 Lower Sub Section Heading
* Books in the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology series do not have chapter numbers. Section headings should follow the numbering: 1 Main section heading; 1.1 Subsection heading; 1.1.1 Lower subsection heading.


Figures should be supplied as TIFF or EPS files, with a resolution of 600 dpi or greater and at a final size of 20 x 12 cm.
Photographs should be provided at the best resolution available (minimum 600 dpi) as TIFF, PDF or JPEG files.
Figures should be supplied ready for printing, without further retouching or redrawing.
Figures should be adequately labelled, and this must remain legible after reduction.
Information not necessary to the discussion – for example, solvents or temperatures – should be omitted from legends.
Avoid using long, complicated schemes or large figures as these may end up some distance from the textual discussion.
Over-large schemes or blocks of structures will be reduced to fit the page so you will need to ensure that detail is not lost in reduction – for example, make sure that lines are thick enough to be visible after reduction, and only label significant atoms in ORTEP-style diagrams.
Figures must be cited in the text. The recommended location of a figure to appear should be indicated as follows:[Figure X.1 near here] Figures taken from internet sites are not usually of reproducible quality, and may also be copyright protected; the original authors should be contacted for a suitable file and permission.
Figures should all be submitted as separate files and not embedded in the typescript (with the exception of ChemDraw files).

Chemical structures & schemes

Structures should be supplied as ChemDraw files.
Structural formulae and reaction schemes should be named Scheme X.1, X.2, etc, and must be cited in the text*.
The approximate positions in the text should be clearly indicated as follows:[Scheme X.2 near here] Recommended guidelines for drawing structures as follows.
Chain bond angle = 120°
Fixed bond angle = 15°
Bond length = 0.43 cm or 12.2 pt
Bond width = 0.016 cm or 0.5 pt
Bold bond width = 0.056 cm or 1.6 pt
Double bond space = 20% of bond length
Stereo bond width = 0.056 cm or 1.6 pt
Hash spacing = 0.062 cm or 1.8 pt
Captions/atom labels = Arial, 7 pt

Colour figures

Your contract will state whether the use of colour is allowed in the printed book or not. The use of colour figures will be considered only where scientifically necessary.
In the eBook version, any figures supplied in colour will appear in colour, regardless of whether the printed book is in colour or black and white. However, the same figure captions will be used in both the print and electronic version so refrain from mentioning colour in the caption.
* Books in the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology series do not have chapter numbers, so schemes should be numbered 1, 2, 3 etc. (not X.1, X.2…).


Tables should be supplied in Word format.
Do not supply tables as image files or in Excel or PowerPoint.
Tables should be single-line spaced.
Footnotes in tables should be self-contained, labelled with superior lower-case letters, and listed as a block of text beneath the table.
The table must be cited in the text.
The approximate location of a table to appear should be indicated as follows:[Table X.5 near here]


All figures and tables should have a caption.
Items should be numbered as X.1, X.2, etc consecutively throughout the chapter*.
Items should be referred to by their number in the text. Do not use phrases such as 'in the figure above' as the final placement of items may change during typesetting.
If a figure has been previously published, the correct copyright information must be included in the caption as stipulated by the copyright holder.
When writing the caption for a figure, please bear in mind that a figure may be black and white in the print book but appear in the electronic book in colour, so the caption must make sense for both situations. Your contract will state if the use of colour is allowed in the printed book or not.
A separate list of all figure and table captions should appear at the end of the main text document.
* Books in the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology series do not have chapter numbers, so items should be numbered 1, 2, 3 etc. (not X.1, X.2…).


These should be set in Mathtype (or Word Equation Editor, where Mathtype is unavailable).
They should be displayed on a separate line in the main text.
They should be numbered consecutively throughout each chapter ((X.1), (X.2) etc) in parentheses at the right-hand side of the page*.
Symbols for variables and physical constants should be italicised.
Matrices and vectors should appear in bold.
* Books in the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology series do not have chapter numbers, so equations should be numbered 1, 2, 3 etc. (not X.1, X.2…).


References should be superscripted in the text (for example, one day.36 The next…).
CASSI Journal abbreviations should be used.
For authors using EndNote, an EndNote style file is available in Templates & sample documents.
A list of references in numerical order (following the Vancouver system) should appear at the end of the chapter. References should only appear once in the list. If the same source is cited more than once the reference number should be repeated.
Books in the Issues in Toxicology series must also include the full article title and the full page range in the reference lists.
References supplied in the Harvard (author/date) system will not be accepted. Please note that the Advances in Chemistry Education series is an exception to this rule.
