Instructions to authors
Journal of Multifunctional Materials and Photoscience (JMMP), published 2 issues each year, contains reports of original research on all aspects of multifunctional and photo-based scientific materials. All manuscripts submitted are considered for publication, with the understanding that they have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere
1. Research fields
(1) Materials: preparation, basic principle and characterization;
(2) Catalytic materials and mechanism;
(3) Environmental friendly materials and applications;
(4) Advanced composites and applications;
(5) Advanced building functional materials;
(6) Nano-materials, sensors and applications;
(7) Materials related to biology, medical and human health;
(8) Photo-induced materials and applications;
(9) Spectroscopy and their theory
(10) Others
2. Types of Contributions

There are three categories of papers published in the Journal: articles, rapid communications, and reviews.
(1) Articles report original research relevant to the field of photo-based scientific materials with complete, detailed, self-contained descriptions of research efforts. Each article is reviewed by qualified review panels. Manuscripts should normally be no longer than 10,000 words.

(2) Rapid Communications are brief scientific or technical reports on new experimental or theoretical concepts relevant to photo-based scientific materials. Each communication is reviewed by one qualified reviewer. Communication is limited to 3000 words including an abstract.

(3) Reviews are occasionally published on topics of current interest or critical issues in the specified subjects. Section headings and an abstract are required. Journal reviews are always the lead paper in the Journal. Authors planning to submit a review should consult the Editors-in-Chief.
3. Submission of Paperss
Authors are asked to submit manuscript electronically through the Homepage (www.ijpcs.org) and e-mail to Editor-in-chief or Editors. In case typed manuscript has to be submitted, consult with the publication coordinator (or manager). Contact information for the corresponding author, including an E-mail address, fax number, and telephone number, must be provided with all submissions.
4. Manuscript Preparation
All manuscripts must be typewritten, double-spaced including the abstract, references and figure captions in a format to print out in A4 size papers. Left and right margins should be at least 2.5 cm each. The following specific items should be noted.

(1) Title: The title should be concise but informative enough to facilitate information retrieval. Acronyms are not allowed in the title. Introductory words such as "On," "Observations on," and "Study of" are to be avoided. Chemical name rather than chemical symbol are to be used in the title.

(2) Author′s names and Affiliations: Author′s full name should be provided in the order of given name, middle name and family name. The affiliations of the authors at the time the work was performed should be presented, with the institution and department names presented in full, along with the city, state, postal code and country. Do not include local address information, such as street name.

(3) Abstract: An abstract of about 150 words or less must be accompanied with each manuscript. The abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, new or unusual methods used in the experimental procedure, significant results, and the conclusions of the articles. The abstract should avoid the use of jargon and other terminology that would render its content inaccessible to the nonspecialist. No footnotes for references may appear in an abstract. At least 5 key words should be followed after the Author′s abstract, beginning with the headline key words.

(4) Text Sections: The text of each paper should be divided into three or more sections. Typical section titles are as follows: 1. Introduction 2. Experimental Procedure
3. Results and Discussion 4. Conclusions (or Summary)

(5) Acknowledgment: A brief acknowledgment section may be presented immediately proceeding the reference section to acknowledge the financial or nonfinancial support.

(6) References: References are to be listed at the end of the paper in the order they are cited in the text, using each Author′s first initials and last name. Do not use et al. in the references.
Chemical abstracts abbreviations must be used. Citations of other than the generally available literature should be avoided if possible. Formats of typical references are as follows:

1. W. C. Cooper, W. D. Kingery, "Dissolution in Ceramic System: I," J. Am. Ceram. Soc., 47 [1] 37-9 (1964).
2. W. C. Oh, "Fabrication of CNT/TiO2 Photocatalysts and Their Photocatalytic Properties for Methlene Blue Degradation," J. Photocatal. Sci., 1 [1] 17-21 (2009).
3. W. Eitel, Silicate Science; Vol. 1, pp. 149-55, Academic Press, New York, 1964.
4. W. C. Bowman and C. W. Krikorian, "Interstitial Phases," pp. 253-92 in Treatise on Solid State Chemistry, Vol. 3, Crystalline and Noncrystalline Solids. Ed.
by N. B. Hannay, Academic Press, London, 1983.
5. W. C. Kong, Martensitic Transformation in Titania, pp. 100-10, in Ph.D. Thesis, Hankook University, Seoul, 1990.

(7) Tables: Tables should be presented on separate sheets at the end of the manuscripts. The title should be as concise as possible. Tables should be numbered in Arabic
numerals and given a clear descriptive title at the top.

(8) Figures: Each figure must be clearly identified with a figure number and caption. Micrography should be glossy, black and white prints and must have a labeled unit length within the body of the picture. Captions of all figures should be grouped in a single listing after the reference seciton.

(9) Equations: Equations should be neatly typed, punctured and aligned to bring out their structure, and numbered on the right.

(10) Notations: The SI system of units should preferably be used for any numerical information. Nomenclature should appear at the end of each paper. Symbols should be listed in alphabetical order with their definitions in SI units.
5. Publication Charge and Reprints
Upon the submittance of manuscripts, authors will be no charged of review process. And, the authors and their institutions (or companies) are required to pay a publication charge, which entitles them with 25 reprints. Additional reprints will be furnished when ordered with the return of galley proofs.
6. Copyright
Accepted papers including their electronic versions shall become the exclusive right of the ijpcs.org and may not be reproduced elsewhere without the ijpcs.org ′s permission.
