KIMIKA: 34th PCC Special Issue

For the 34th Philippine Chemistry Congress, a special issue of the KIMIKA: The Journal of the Kapisanang Kimika ng Pilipinas (KKP), will be created to contain the paper presentations. The 34th PCC is offering all participants to publish their contributions as communication to the KIMIKA journal. All submitted papers will be subjected to the standard peer-review process of the journal. All the peer-reviewed and accepted manuscripts will be published officially in the KIMIKA Special Issue. Each paper will also be available in the KIMIKA open-access online journal and will be assigned a permanent DOI. Paper publications in KIMIKA will merit CPD units.

KIMIKA Special Issue manuscripts are communication papers and are limited to 3-4 pages to prevent similarity with the future publication of full-size papers. Peer-reviewed and accepted papers will undergo revision considering the comments of the reviewers and to conform to the standards of the journal. Authors whose contributions are published in the KIMIKA Special Issue can still publish their papers as full-size papers to other journals provided the title is different, its content is significantly improved, its scope is wider and the wordings are rephrased.

Authors who are only intending to present a paper in the 34th PCC but NOT intending to publish their contributions to the KIMIKA Special Issue journal will still submit the paper template for the review process. Once accepted, only the title and the presenting author will be listed in the 34th PCC Program. Authors who do not meet the revision deadline for inclusion in the KIMIKA Special Issue will belong to this category during the congress. However, the paper can still be published in KIMIKA at a later issue after complying with the revision requirement. Authors whose contributions are not published in the KIMIKA Special Issue are free to publish their papers at will after the congress. Abstracts of contributed papers that will not be included in the KIMIKA Special Edition, will be made available during the congress.
