The Journal of Organic Chemistry is #1 in total citations in the field of Organic Chemistry with 91,163 cites in 2010.
Scope: all areas of organic chemistry including synthesis, natural products,
reaction mechanisms, bioorganic, organometallic, organic materials, theory and
supramolecular chemistry. Research should be appropriate for the readership of JOC.

Manuscript types:
Articles: full papers that describe a complete story
Notes: concise accounts describing novel observations, new methods of wide applicability
or interest, or focused studies of general interest. NOT communications. NOT preliminary.
Perspectives: personal overviews of specialized research areas by acknowledged experts –
are published only by invitation of the Editor-in-Chief.

NEW!!
Brief Communications: short accounts of preliminary results of unusual novelty and
urgency that justify immediate disclosure. Typically 2 pages of text + experimental.
Manuscripts declined as communications cannot be resubmitted as Notes to JOC or as
Letters to Organic Letters.
JOCSynopses: brief focused reviews of current topics of interest to organic chemists
written by active researchers that include work from their own laboratories. Typically by
invitation.

How to choose where to publish research?


 1. Match with the scope of the journal

 2. Which journal is likely to lead to the most readers of the paper?

 3. Is there urgency to the publication? Which journal is likely to give
    the fastest processing

 4. Issues of paper length (letters format versus regular paper)

 5. Do the coauthors of the paper agree on what should be done?
How to prepare and publish a paper
First thing to do is look at the ACS Pub Web site:http://pubs.acs.org

All the journals are listed, and each has a click button entitled:
“Submission and Review” Under this is “Information for Authors”.
For JPC, you’ll find detailed instructions in a pdf file:
http://pubs.acs.org/paragonplus/submission/jpchax/jpchax_authguide.pdf

For JOC:
http://pubs.acs.org/paragonplus/submission/joceah/joceah_authguide.pdf
                          Submission and Review
After the paper is prepared, go to the Paragon Plus site
https://acs.manuscriptcentral.com/acs and submit. Here you get to suggest possible
reviewers for your manuscript.

Shortly after submission, an editor will be assigned. Also, you might get some email
which requests additional information, or in some cases revisions to what you have
submitted so that it can be processed. Papers judged to be in the wrong field or are
too routine may be rejected at this stage.

The editor then assigns reviewers. Usually it takes about 4-6 weeks to get the reviews
back. The editor looks things over, and then makes a decision (accept, reject, revise).
Sometimes additional reviewing is done, but typically a paper doesn’t go through more
than one round of reviews.* If the paper is accepted, then shortly thereafter proofs will
appear. This is the last time that any changes can be made.

Other issues:
         Journal Publishing Agreement
         Just Accepted Manuscripts
         ACS Author Choice (relates to Open Access Publishing)

*JOC sends many manuscripts for re-review when the reviewer has requested “major revisions”.
Additional criteria for JOC (and OL):

The Compound Characterization Checklist:
Tips for Submission and Review:

• Follow the guidelines
     Your manuscript may be unsubmitted if you haven’t read and followed the
guidelines. (e.g. compound characterization, word or page limits, failure to
provide information about other manuscripts).

• Suggest good reviewers
     Experts on the subject who would find your work interesting. (Not at the
same institution, not close collaborators, not just your friends from grad school.)
Reviewing is a global process—anyone with scientific credentials and an email
address might review your manuscript.

• Don’t take it personally when you get a negative review
     Editors balance the written comments with the reviewer’s background to
arrive at a decision.
     Trying to guess who the reviewer was is unproductive.
     Use the reviews to guide you to a positive experience next time.
