XVII International Conference "Horizons in Hydrogen Bond Research" and German-Russian Graduate Student Research School on "Hydrogen Bonding and Proton Transfer"

September 1-8, 2007


Publication of the proceedings of the Conference

The invited lectures and a selection of the contributed papers will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Molecular Structure.  There are no specific length restrictions for manuscripts, although papers should be of a length appropriate to the material presented at the Conference.  Only papers containing significant new research results and/or critical review material will be considered for publication. Where an individual or research group has several related contributions, they are strongly encouraged to submit a single manuscript featuring the most original aspects of the work; multiple short papers from an individual or research group will not be accepted.

Authors wishing to submit a paper are strongly encouraged to make use of the Elsevier electronic submission website: http://ees.elsevier.com/molstruc/.  It would be helpful for papers to be submitted before the start of the Conference, but submissions made up to 1 month after the end of the Conference can still be considered for the special issue (please indicate clearly that the paper is intended for the conference proceedings).  Alternatively, authors may bring their manuscript with them to the Conference and hand the original plus two copies to the editorial representative or the organizers.  Opportunity will be afforded to authors to amend their papers, where necessary, in the light of discussion at the Conference.  All papers will be examined by referees and are expected to comply with the standards expected for a paper published by the Journal in a regular issue.  Papers will be typeset, and manuscripts should be prepared according to the instructions available at http://www.elsevier.com/locate/molstruc/.
