Call for Papers & Instructions for the Authors

The International Journal of Corrosion and Scale Inhibition (Int. J. Corros. Scale Inhib.) publishes original papers and reviews dealing with the theory and practice of metal protection by inhibitors.

Manuscripts shall be submitted to the editorial board in English via e-mail ( All manuscripts will be subject to reviewing.

Except for the manuscripts authored by Editorial Board members, manuscripts will be published on a paid basis. The publication cost is $400. The payment will be requested after a manuscript has been reviewed and approved.

New papers are added to the journal as they are received. The manuscript approved by reviewers will be published within two weeks since the payment has been made. The Journal is published in issues (4 issues per year).

A manuscript shall be provided in MS Word. It shall include: the title, authors (with their respective institutions and e-mail addresses), abstract (at least 250 words), key words, text (recommended structure: Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, Conclusions), References (references to papers published in IJCSI are appreciated), Figures, Figure captions, Tables). Figures and Tables should be inserted at their preferred positions in the text. Figures shall be preferably in in conventional graphic formats with the best quality available.

References shall be provided according to the examples shown below (for more examples, please see the published papers on this site). The initials of all contributors should precede the last names (example: N.N. Andreev). Where possible, the journal title abbreviations must be as provided in the CAS Source Index (CASSI).
