The Editors of Macromolecular Research and Springer provide a set of statement of ethical issue for persons engaged in the
publication in Macromolecular Research.
The manuscript should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief via online through the submission site at
Manuscript should be prepared on a white paper of 22×28 cm or A4 paper, one side only, with
adequate margins. The entire manuscript should be double-spaced. Please click the ‘Login’ button from the menu above and log
in to the system as ‘Author’. Then submit your manuscript and track its progress through the system. A wide range of submission
file formats is supported, including: Word, WordPerfect, RTF, TXT, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, EPS, LaTeX2E, TeX, Postscript, PICT, Excel, Tar,
Zip and Powerpoint. PDF is not an acceptable file format. Authors should present their work in concise and clear English. The
name of author to whom inquiries about the paper may be addressed should be marked with an asterisk. Running Heads (less
than 50 letters) should be placed between the title of the paper and the abstract. An abstract should be provided for all Articles,
Communications, Notes, Reviews, and Feature articles. Abstracts should explain briefly the reason for the work, the significant
results, and conclusions. Other subheadings, such as Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion, and References, should
be flush left and in boldface type or underlined, with initial capitalization only. All pages should be numbered consecutively,
including reference and notes, figure captions, and tables, grouped in that sequence following the text. Original copies of graphs,
drawings, structural formulas and photographs should be included at the end of the manuscript and authors should indicate in
the typeset where these are to be inserted. Figures and graphs should be carefully prepared line drawings and only the originals
and high-quality reproductions are acceptable. Symbols and lettering (typewriter labeling is unacceptable) should be compatibly
sized for optimum reproduction. References to the literature and all notes (except those in tables) should be numbered in one
consecutive series. Reference numbers in the text should be typed as superscript numbers without parentheses or spaces, but
enclosed in parentheses in the reference section following the text. References should be arranged and punctuated as

All manuscripts must be accompanied by a brief summary of the key findings of the work and a graphic that depicts the topic
addressed. These brief summary and related illustration will be published in the table of contents. The summary should be a
description of the accompanying graphic and must reflect accurately the content of the manuscript. Such summaries are limited
to 50 words in length and should not be confused with the abstract. The graphic could be in the form of a structure, reaction
scheme, graphical data, photograph etc., but not a table. The author must submit a graphic in the actual size to be used, 4.5 cm
high and 5 cm wide. Font size of labels, formulas, or numbers within the graphic must be legible. Authors are advised to use
systematic names similar to those used by Chemical Abstracts Service and the IUPAC. Chemical Abstracts nomenclature rules are
contained in Appendix IV of the current Chemical Abstracts Index Guide. The basic rule is to use SI unit for all types of units.
All reviewers must submit their reviews using the Editorial Manager system of Springer, which provides complete access to all
publishable parts of the manuscript.
Galley proofs with reprint order forms are sent to the author. Proofs should be checked against the manuscript and returned as
soon as possible, along with the filled-out reprint order form. All orders must be filled out before press time and bills are issued
subsequent to reprint shipment. In order to defray in part the cost of publication the purchase of 25 reprints is requested (usually,
ca. 100 USD or less) regardless of pages of the paper. However, payment of reprint charges is not a condition for publication of
the paper. The decision as to whether or not to publish the paper is made solely on the basis of merit.
There is no page charge to publish the paper.
