As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • Main file (MS Word doc format) with the text of the article, including reaction schemes, tables, figures in their proper places.

    NOTE! This checklist is to remind you to prepare all the necessary files. Items 1, 2, and 5 are always needed.

    In order to proceed, please, check all the items below, even if your submission do not contain the respective files.

  • A separate file complete with the authors' full names, the title of the article, and the same graphic as presented in the beginning of the abstract. (Upload as a supplementary file.)

  • Figures (if any, separate jpg files, resolution at least 300 dpi) (Upload as supplementary files.)
  • Supplementary material in English, that is not included in the article's text, for example, graphics of the spectra or figures, combined into a pdf file; fid files.

    (Upload as supplementary files.)

  • Consent to Publish (Upload as a supplementary file.)

I order to submit a manuscript you must have the  Role "Author" checked in your user profile.

After the login into the system, one should go to the hyperlink ["New Submission"] on the page "USER HOME" and then follow the instructions on the site.

Graphical abstracts, figures, scanned Consent to Publish forms, and all other required items should be uploaded as supplementary files.

Original of the Consents to the Publish send to the Editorial Board address:

The author should follow the review and editing process and communicate with the Editorial Office through this website. Please follow the instructions. Additional information is available under the link "Journal Help" in the section "Author's Role".

Original Papers

Original papers of experimental or theoretical character may concern synthesis, structure, and reactions of heterocyclic compounds, as well as their biological activity, physicochemical, and other properties in the context of synthesis. Transformations of substituents in a heterocycle may be considered when their character is specific due to a special effect of the heterocyclic system. The paper must present definitive and comprehensive accounts of previously unpublished research. Research based on analogy (trivial change of substituents or conditions) will not be accepted without demonstration of its special significance. Original papers should not exceed 15 journal pages.

Review Articles

The review or mini-review should cover topics that are of sufficiently general interest for heterocyclic chemists or reflect an important aspect of practical applications of heterocyclic compounds in industry, agriculture, medicine, etc. Reviews should be comprehensive, critical, and readable accounts of the newest research in heterocyclic chemistry. The time period and the scope of the subject area should be clearly defined in the Introduction. Review manuscripts should not exceed 35 journal pages, and mini-reviews – 10 journal pages.

The topic of a review or mini-review should be submitted for preliminary approval by the Editors in the form of a detailed (1–2 pages) summary.

Short Communications

Short communication should contain substantially new results or methods of general applicability or interest, or focused studies requiring the claim of precedence. Only those experimental data and literature references necessary for confirmation of the main conclusion should be presented. The synthesis of known compounds by a new method should be illustrated with at least 5 examples. Short communications should not exceed 4 journal pages.
