Information for Contributors

The Chinese Journal of Nonferrous Metals, founded in 1991 and sponsored by The Nonferrous Metals Society of China, is published bimonthly and mainly contains reports of original research which reflect the new progresses in the field of nonferrous metals science and technology, including mineral processing, extraction metallurgy, metallic materials and heat treatments, metal working, physical metallurgy, powder metallurgy, with the emphasis on fundamental science. It is the unique preeminent publication in Chinese for scientists, engineers, under/post-graduates on the field of nonferrous metals industry. This journal is covered by many famous abstract/index systems and databases such as Ei Compendex Plus, INSPEC, CA, METADEX, AJ, and JICST.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the Editorial Office of The Chinese Journal of Nonferrous Metals by E-mail or online. The manuscripts, including the abstract, references and text in table and figure, should be typed in English, single spaced and one-sided of A4 paper with ample margins. They should be proofread by the authors, and not longer than twenty pages.

The abstract should not be less than 100 words in length. It should be self-contained and should be adequate as a summary of the article, namely, it should contain aim and significance, experimental methods and main results and conclusions as well; newly developed conceptions, methods, apparatus, techniques, and newly discovered facts, particularly. The authors are requested to provide three to eight key words that should be typed below the abstract.

References in the text should be numbered (e.g. “LIU et al[1] reported that…”), and listed on a separate sheet in the following formats:

Equations should be neatly typed, punctured and aligned to bring out their structure, and numbered on the right. Physical quantities should be printed in italics, and vectors in bold-face italics. For mathematical expressions, the solidus (/) should be used instead of built-up fractions in running text and in display wherever clarity would not be jeopardized. Use “exp” for complicated exponentials.

Photographs should have a high resolution. They should be glossy, properly focused and exposed. Those who wish to place two or more photographs side by side are reminded that the column width of this journal is approximately 150 mm. Line drawings should be clear and well designed. The lettering and plotted points should be large enough to be legible after reduction. Graphs should have axes with proper labels such as T/K.
