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 from corrosion and scaling by inhibitors.

Manuscripts shall be provided in English by e-mail ( All manuscripts will be subject to reviewing (each article will be estimated by two reviewers).

A publication fee is charged for all articles. The cost of publishing an article is currently 400 USA Dollars. The average time to publication is 2-3 months. Moreover, we offer an urgent publication service within 2-3 weeks, not including the time of waiting for the payments and for responses from authors (subject to approval by Reviewers) for just 800 USA Dollars.

Please use good English language in your articles. Publications can be rejected or delayed due to poor language quality. If possible, have your articles edited by native speakers or a language proofing service. Alternatively, the language in your article can be edited by our experts. The cost of this service is currently 150 USA Dollars.

All manuscripts are to be provided in Microsoft Word, if possible version 2016 or later. A manuscript shall include: the title, authors (with their ORCIDs, if available, and respective institutions, including the street addresses, postal codes, and country), the e-mail of the corresponding author, the Abstract (200-250 words), key words, the article text (recommended structure: Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, Conclusions), References (references to articles published in IJCSI are appreciated). Figures and Tables should be inserted in the text at their preferred positions. Figures shall be provided in good (printing) quality.

IMPORTANT! Using the MS Word built-in equation editor should be avoided unless it is absolutely necessary (complex equations). Please use ordinary text formatting tools (sub/superscripts, etc.) even if some characters seem to be shifted against each other (e.g., sulfate ion).

References in the text should be given like [1], [3-5] etc. and the list or references should be provided in the format as shown in the examples below (for more examples, please see the recently published articles on this site). The initials of all contributors should precede the last names (example: S.S. White). Where possible, the journal titles should be abbreviated as provided in the CAS Source Index (CASSI). Please add any available Internet links (DOI, etc.) to the cited sources. Please also provide the paper titles, especially in reviews.
