Aims and Scope
"Natural Products Chemistry & Research (NPCR), a broad-based journal was founded on two key tenets: To publish the most exciting researches with respect to the subjects of natural products chemistry & its applications. Secondly, to provide a rapid turn-around time possible for reviewing and publishing and to disseminate the articles freely for research, teaching and reference purposes.
Natural Products Chemistry & Research articles are intended to give an intriguing knowledge into the subject, focussing on the key improvements that have shaped a field instead of giving an extremely thorough diagram of all outcomes. Authors are urged to incorporate their own particular viewpoint on improvements, patterns and future headings.
Definition of Open Access Publication
Open Access Publication is one that meets the following two conditions:
- The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship, as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.
- A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable Open Access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).
