Chemical and Process Engineering publishes papers on original and significant experiments and/or mathematical modelling for momentum, heat and mass transfer, which may also be accompanied by chemical/biochemical reactions. The experiments and modelling cover different scales and processes ranging from the molecular phenomena up to production systems. The Journal is a peer-reviewed, quarterly magazine with over 50-year tradition, now aiming at applications in chemical, biochemical and various process industries.

Instructions for Authors
All manuscripts submitted for publication in Chemical and Process Engineering must comprise a description of original research that has neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.
The content, aim and scope of the proposals should comply with the main subject of the journal, i.e. they should deal with mathematical modelling and/or experimental investigations on momentum, heat and mass transfer, unit processes and operations, integrated processes, biochemical engineering, statics and kinetics of chemical reactions. The experiments and modelling may cover different scales and processes ranging from the molecular phenomena up to production systems. The journal language is grammatically correct British English.
Chemical and Process Engineering publishes: i) full text research articles, ii) invited reviews, iii) letters to the editor and iv) short communications, aiming at important new results and/or applications. Each of the publication form is peer-reviewed by at least two independent referees.
Submission of materials for publication
The manuscripts are submitted for publication via email address A.Bin@ichip.pw.edu.pl. When writing the manuscript, authors should preferably use the template for articles, which is available on the www.degruyter.com/view/j/cpe.
Proposals of a paper should be uploaded using the Internet site of the journal and should contain:
- a manuscript file in Word format (*.doc, *.docx),
- the manuscript mirror in PDF format,
- all graphical figures in separate graphics files.
In the following paragraph the general guidelines for the manuscript preparation are presented.
1. Header details
a. Title of paper
b. Names (first name and further initials) and surnames of authors
c. Institution(s) (affiliation)
d. Address(es) of authors
e. Information about the corresponding author; academic title, name and surname, email address, address for correspondence
2. Abstract - should contain a short summary of the proposed paper. In the maximum of 200 words the authors should present the main assumptions, results and conclusions drawn from the presented study.
3. Keywords - Up to 5 characteristic keyword items should be provided.
a. Introduction. In this part, description of motivation for the study and formulation of the scientific problem should be included and supported by a concise review of recent literature.
b. Main text. It should contain all important elements of the scientific investigations, such as presentation of experimental rigs, mathematical models, results and their discussion. This part may be divided into subchapters.
c. Conclusions. The major conclusions can be put forward in concise style in a separate chapter. Presentation of conclusions from the reported research work accompanied by a short commentary is also acceptable.
Figures: drawings, diagrams and photographs should be located in appropriate places in the manuscript text according to the template. Their graphical form should be of vector or raster type with the minimum resolution of 900 dpi. In addition, separate files containing each of the drawings, graphs and photos should be uploaded onto the journal Web site in one of the following formats: bmp, gif, tiff, jpg, eps. Due to rigid editorial reasons, graphical elements created within MS Word and Excel are not acceptable. The final length of figures should be intended typically for 8 cm (single column) or 16 cm in special cases of rich-detail figures. The basic font size of letters in figures should be at least 10 pts after adjusting graphs to the final length.
Figures: drawings, diagrams and photographs should be in gray scale. In case of colored graphs or photo an additional payment of 300 PLN (60 €) per 1 page containing colored figures on both sides, or 160 PLN (32 €) per page containing colored figures on one side will be required.
Tables should be made according to the format shown in the template.
All figures and tables should be numbered and provided with appropriate title and legend, if necessary. They have to be properly referenced to and commented in the text of the manuscript.
5. List of symbols should be accompanied by their units
6. Acknowledgements may be included before the list of literature references
7. Literature citations
The method of quoting literature source in the manuscript depends on the number of its authors:
- single author - their surname and year of publication should be given, e.g. Marquardt (1996) or (Marquardt, 1996),
- two authors - the two surnames separated by the conjunction "and" with the publication year should be given, e.g. Charpentier and McKenna (2004) or (Charpentier and McKenna, 2004),
- three and more authors - the surname of the first author followed by the abbreviation "et al." and year of publication should be given, e.g. Bird et al. (1960) or (Bird et al., 1960).
In the case of citing more sources in one bracket, they should be listed in alphabetical order using semicolon for separation, e.g. (Bird et al., 1960; Charpentier and McKenna, 2004; Marquardt, 1996). Should more citations of the same author(s) and year appear in the manuscript then letters "a, b, c, ..." should be successively applied after the publication year.
Bibliographic data of the quoted literature should be arranged at the end of the manuscript text in alphabetic order of surnames of the first author. It is obligatory to indicate the DOI number of those literature items, which have the numbers already assigned. Journal titles should be specified by typing their right abbreviations or, in case of doubts, according to the List of Title Word Abbreviations available at http://www.issn.org/2-22661-LTWA-online.php.
