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.

A fee will be charged for all publications except analytical reviews and articles from Editorial Board members. The cost of publishing an article is currently 250 USA Dollars. The average publication time is 2-3 months. In addition, we offer the urgent publication service (within 2 weeks) for just 500 USA Dollars (if approved by a Reviewer).
