Scope Journal of Chromatography A publishes research papers and critical reviews on all aspects of fundamental and applied separation science. The scope includes chromatography and related techniques (e.g. field-flow fractionation), electromigration techniques, hyphenated and other multi-dimensional techniques, sample preparation, and detection methods such as mass spectrometry. Journal of Chromatography A accepts manuscripts describing fundamental research on all aspects of separation science theory and methodology, instrumental developments and analytical and preparative applications of general interest. In determining the suitability of submitted articles for publication, particular scrutiny will be placed on the degree of novelty and significance of the research and the extent to which it adds to existing knowledge in separation science. Papers reporting routine separation methods or straightforward extensions of these methods to new sample matrices will normally not be published. Review articles are invited by the editors. Potential authors may also propose a review article in writing to the editors or the editorial office by providing a brief outline of the subject matter and the proposed content. Review articles should be sufficiently broad in scope, but should be specific enough to permit discussion at an appropriate depth. Above all, reviews should be critical rather than enumerative and should provide the reader with expert opinion regarding the relative merits of the various published approaches to the topic under review.The same criteria are applied for acceptance of manuscripts, irrespective of whether these are submitted for regular issues, special issues, or symposium issues.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
