Author Guidelines

al Kimiya: Jurnal Ilmu Kimia dan Terapan is published by the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science and Technology, UIN Sunan Gunung Djati Bandung. The main objective of this periodical publication is to publish original and scientific contributions to pure and applied chemistry. What is meant by pure chemistry here is traditionally concerning the study of special fields of Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Analytical Chemistry, while in applied chemistry we focus on the publication of the results of the application of chemistry in the fields of food, energy, and environment. al-Kimiya Journal publishes short communication and research articles in English.

In our perspective, chemistry must also be able to support the needs of Muslims in carrying out their worship, so that we also receive and publish the results of their chemical and applied research which are classified as contributing to the problem of Islamic religious values. We also support the publication of scientific findings in the field of chemistry.

al Kimiya: Jurnal Ilmu Kimia dan Terapan publishes scientifically valuable manuscripts that can help to understand and affirm the concepts of chemistry, both related to fundamental issues and in their applied perspective. Publish twice a year, June and December.

1.    The scope of the journal

The scope of al Kimiya: Jurnal Ilmu Kimia dan Terapan's publication included general studies and special studies. The general studies are pure chemistry in general and in specific fields as follows:

  • Study of inorganic, organic, and biochemical substances / materials that have traditionally been successively entered into studies of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Some examples of specific topics from the study of these substances are bioanorganic, bioorganic, organometallic, heterogeneous catalysts, transition metal chemistry and coordination chemistry (complex), metabolism, enzymology, natural material chemistry, and solids.
  • Study of the physical and chemical properties of matter and their changes that have traditionally entered into the study of physical chemistry. Some examples of specific topics from this study are reaction kinetics and mechanisms, surface chemistry, polymers, dyes, thermo (dynamics) chemistry, theoretical chemistry and computation, membrane, catalysis, radiochemistry, electrochemistry, photochemistry and spectroscopy.
  • Experimental studies and chemical instrumentation that have traditionally entered into analytic chemistry studies. Some examples of specific topics from this study are spectroscopy, microscopy, and chromatography.


Specific studies that can be raised in the publication of al Kimiya: Jurnal Ilmu Kimia dan Terapan in general are as follows:

  • Study of applied chemistry in the field of food. Some examples of specific topics from this study are proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, additives, food coloring agents, and food chemical technologies related to these topics.
  • Study of applied chemistry in the energy field. Some examples of specific topics from this study are photochemistry, cell chemistry fuel, biomass, petroleum and natural gas fuels, renewable chemical energy sources, and chemical energy conversion;
  • Study of applied chemistry in the field of environment. Some examples of specific topics from this study are soil chemistry, aquatic chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, green chemistry, toxicology, and water treatment.
  • Pure chemistry studies as well as applied in the problem of local wisdom. This study was inspired by the lack of habits (traditions) in local tribe customs or culture related to the use of substances from nature. "Back to Nature" can be the ultimate term to describe the contribution of culture to modern traditions that are more prudent in managing nature.
  • Pure and applied chemistry studies to understand the universality values of Islam rahmatan lil alamin.

Introduction (special title) must state the purpose of the work and provide sufficient background from the study, its relation to work / previous studies in the same field, questions / problems that must be answered, and the methods used, so that the reader can understand and evaluate the results of your work. The previous relevant work carried out by the same author must be stated by reference. Avoid detailed literature or a summary of these results.

Experiment. Provide enough detail to make it easier for others to repeat the experiment. Previously published methods must be stated by reference, but new procedures or modifications must be written in detail. Give the chemical composition clearly. In addition, if research is in the field of computation / theory, the experimental part is adjusted.

Results and Discussion. The results of the study must be presented clearly and concisely, and the discussion must reveal the meaning of the results of the research work. Present the results of observations in text, tables, and images in a logical presentation sequence. Do not repeat data in tables or images in the text.

Pictures and tables. All images and tables must be linked in the text and placed in text close to before the image or table is placed. Image and table numbering must be sequential using Arabic numerals. Information on images and tables must be easily understood without having to read the text that links the information. The same data cannot be displayed in more than one image or table. Tables must be created using the format of MS Word software, and the author must ensure that the data entry actually resides in the table cell. Schemes and illustrations of chemical structures and reactions must be numbered sequentially with Arabic numerals. In texts that have been received for publication, the images and tables must be of sufficient quality for review by expert editors. It is strongly recommended that all images and illustrations be made with suitable software tools, then the image needs to be converted into a .jpg format with good quality. If the text is accepted, all images and tables, and the title and description will be reproduced or edited referring to the journal editorial standard before publication. The author may be asked to provide pictures that meet eligibility (including experimental data) by editorial staff. Writing formulas must use MS Equation, Times New Roman, 10 pts, regular. If there are many mathematical equations and will be mentioned repeatedly, the formula must use numbering. In the text, press is written. 1, 2, 3, etc.

Measuring units, symbols, and abbreviations. All measurements must be expressed in international system units (SI). Other quantities must be converted into SI units. The unit of temperature must be written in °C or K. Make a space between the numbers and units. Each abbreviation must be set first when used in the abstract, the body of the text, and conclusions, by first mentioning the intention or its length, and afterwards only the abbreviations are used consistently. Abbreviations used must not be more than five characters (letters, numbers, or punctuation).

Conclusion. For texts that include Articles and Reviews, a conclusion must be written as a summary of the fundamental conclusions of the research work or review. Conclusions must be expressed as a connection between the results and discussion, but it is not a repetition, nor is it the same as abstract. Written no more than one paragraph.

Glossary of terms. If many field-specific terms are used in the text, make a list of definitions in this section.

Acknowledgement notes. Thank you can be conveyed to one or several parties (individuals or institutions) who have provided research funding, technical assistance, materials, and discussions.
