Guidelines for authors

The journal Combustion and Plasma Chemistry publishes original scientific articles based on experimental and theoretical research on combustion and plasma chemistry, technology of explosives and pyrotechnic materials, chemical physics, and materials science.

The journal topics include the following areas:

the mechanism of chemical reactions in the gas and condensed phases and at the interface;

unconventional chemical technologies, including nanotechnology, using combustion or plasma processes;

detonation of condensed explosives, gases and heterogeneous systems;

new physical methods for studying combustion processes;

chain and thermal processes of ignition, combustion and detonation in gases, shock waves;

nanomaterials and nanotechnology.

The journal also publishes materials of scientific conferences according to the thematic direction of the publication.

Manuscripts are accepted for publication upon receipt of at least two positive reviews (reviewing - one-sided "blind"). All articles that go to the editorial office of the journal are checked for borrowing (Crossref: Similarity Check - Powered by iThenticate).

The manuscript can be uploaded via the electronic platform by the author for correspondence, indicating all the metadata of the article and its authors, or by e-mail:



Manuscripts sent to the editorial office of the journal must be drawn up in compliance with the following rules:

In a cover letter addressed to the editor-in-chief, the author (s) provides a justification for the novelty and relevance of the article, guarantees that the article has not been previously published and is not under consideration for publication in other editions, does not violate the ethics of scientific publications, and is also approved by the co-authors to submit the article to the journal.

Authors should exclude: data falsification; unlawful use of other people's works without appropriate indication of sources; publications, a significant amount of which was previously published in other editions, revised (modified) by translating the article into English or making small changes (additions) to the article.

The manuscript must be carefully edited (the volume should not exceed 30 thousand characters). If the manuscript is submitted in English, then the English language must correspond to the professional level. The text of the article is drawn up in one column, you should not split the text into two columns (text editor: Microsoft Word, font: Times New Roman; spacing: single; font size: 12 pt.). The title of the article, the surnames and initials of the authors, the name and address of the organization, abstract, keywords must also be submitted in English.

Figures and diagrams must be submitted in their original format (JPG, TIF or other graphic formats). Each drawing should be presented in a separate file (for example, 1a, 1b, 1c, etc.). Drawings should have good image quality and provide clarity in all details (300-600 dpi). Drawings that do not meet the requirements of the journal are not accepted. All figures previously published by international publishers must obtain permission to be reproduced.

It is recommended to use the ChemDraw program for typing chemical formulas.

Tables should be named and numbered, and have if necessary, explanatory texts and notes.



The title of the article (the title should be informative and not more than 10-15 words).

Surnames and initials of the authors, indicating the corresponding author. Information on the authors with indication of their positions, academic degrees and email addresses should be provided additionally.

The full name of the scientific organization and the address where the work was done.

Abstract (150-200 words). The annotation must provide information on the specific results of the work and the conclusions made on their basis. The abstract should not contain equations, symbols, abbreviations, references to literature.

Key words (5-7 words).

Introduction. It is recommended that the introduction clearly describe the object of research and provide a brief overview of the works published on this topic.

Experimental part.

Results and discussion.


Funding information (if available).

Bibliography. In the list of references, it is necessary to reflect current publications on this topic of work over the past 5-10 years, taking into account the work of foreign scientists.

Executon of the list of references

The list of references should fully correspond to the main text of the article, i.e. contain all the works mentioned in it and contain references to available sources. It is not allowed to combine several sources in one reference. Each article must contain 2 (two) references: 1 - in the language of the article, drawn up in accordance with GOST; 2 - in an international format in English. Articles prepared with gross violations of the rules for formatting the list of references will be returned for revision without reviewing.
