The templates will give you an idea of length and layout of the article; however all articles are professionally edited and typeset to our house style, so the final article will look different to the template. For further guidance on writing your article and preparing electronic supplementary information (ESI) see our guidelines for preparing your article.
For most of our journals the use of the template is optional; however, you must use the Communication template for preparing Communications to ChemComm and Catalysis Science & Technology. For communications, use the Communication template; for all other article types (including reviews and Edge articles), use the article template. Please note that Faraday Discussions uses a single column format so it will look different to the template.
Some journals also offer double-anonymised peer review; authors who choose to opt in should ensure their manuscript and all associated files are suitably anonymised before submission.
Please consult our template user guide for help when using our Microsoft Word templates.
