|Directions for the Preparation of
Electronic Supporting Information
Chemistry Letters is now further improving Electronic Supporting Information to facilitate readability by making maximum use of the capacity of electronic information. The service opens up new possibility of better understanding of authors' academic research with moving images of 3-D molecular architecture, sequences, voluminous experimental data, high-resolution graphical contents in color, and more.
Electronic Supporting Information is available on the Web, free of charge, with a click on the link of "Supporting Information" in the journal's Table of Contents.
For the readers of the printed version of Chemistry Letters, manuscripts with Electronic Supporting Information are marked with the "E-Supporting Info icon," and within the text-body of the mansucript, Electronic Supporting Information is indicated as cited literature. Readers are thus guided to access the site of Electronic Supporting Information on the Web.
Preparation of Electronic Supporting Information
Note that authors must supply Electronic Supporting Information at the time of the first manuscript submission.
The Electronic Supporting Information should include experimental evidences necessary for supporting the submitted Chemistry Letters manuscript data and will be used for the purpose of refereeing and deposition at the Web journal server, J-STAGE.
When the Electronic Supporting Information is supplied, the authors are requested to state whether the materials can be published on the Web or not.
The authors may submit such data for refereeing purpose only. In this case, authors MUST add a note of caution in the upper margin of the submitted manuscript file as "Review Only/CONFIDENTIAL."
How to prepare Electronic Supporting Information (outline)
Authors wishing to submit Electronic Supporting Information are asked to ensure that the supplementary data is saved in a file of the following file types, clearly separated from those of the manuscript text and figures, and that all the file names are supplied.
When an uncommon file type is supplied, it is highly recommended to provide the Editorial Office with details of the software required for viewing the files. The software should be available freely, preferably via the Web.
- JPEG/GIF (max 640x480 pixels)
- X-Ray crystallographic data
It is suggested that authors upload the data of Electronic Supporting Information to J-STAGE server upon registration for new submission on the Web. Whenever any trouble or question arises, the CSJ Editorial Office should be contacted in advance.
For more detailed instructions on preparing electronic data of Supporting Information are available here.
Copyright and Permissible Use of Electronic Supporting Information
The copyrights for all manuscripts (including Supporting Information) published in Chemistry Letters, no matter in what medium they may appear, are automatically transferred to the CSJ. For more details, please refer to the Information for Authors.
The CSJ will process all permission requests and will monitor and report on electronic reuses of CSJ-copyrighted materials.
Any files may be downloaded for personal use only; In such case, the permission to reproduce, redistribute, and use all or most of the Electronic Supporting Information in other publications, should be obtained from the CSJ, using the Copyright Permission Form and the original manuscript should be clearly cited in the publications.
