Editor will consider for publication original papers, short communications,
reviews and special features (e.g. industry, training) related with
the scientific field of corrosion and protection of materials.
Manuscripts can be written in Portuguese, in English or in Spanish,
and submitted by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or by post, in duplicate, to the Editor (Doctor Teresa C. Diamantino,
INETI/LTR, Estrada do Paço do Lumiar, 1649-038 Lisboa, Portugal)
with a diskette or CD-ROM. The file format must be “Word” for Windows
98, 2000NT or XP. Manuscripts must not exceed 25 pages A4, including
tables and figures, with double spacing between lines and font type
and size “Arial 12”. All text margins must have a width of 2.0 cm. Pages
must be numbered sequentially, including the first page and in the centre.
Papers must include the following headings in sequential order:
- Title, short and explanatory, in bold type, capital letters and font
- Authors (text alignment left) with an asterisk indicating the author
to whom correspondence should be addressed. Professional addresses,
including telephone number, fax and e-mail, must be listed sequentially
and numbered ((1), (2),...) in a footnote.
- Abstract may not exceed 125 words with single spacing between lines.
Key words (maximum 6) in bold, italic type, with text alignment left.
If the paper is written in English or Spanish, the Editor will add the
title, abstract and key words in Portuguese. If it is written in Portuguese,
the authors should include the title, abstract and key words in English
and French, the former being obligatory.
- In the introduction the authors must adequately justify the reasons
for their paper in a scientific or technological context. For instance,
they must briefly indicate, with references, the literature existing
in the corresponding area, thus evidencing the opportuneness of the
- In the methodology, results and discussion sections, all units must
be specified according to the SI system. Figures and tables must be
centred in the text, with a clear presentation, and wherever possible
comprehensible without the need to consult other information. Table
headings, in bold type, must be centred and adimensional, e.g. D/(10-9
m2 s-1) not D(10-9 m2 s-1), as must all the symbols and units used.
All graphs, sketches, photos and special symbology must be presented
in good quality (300 dpi) and must be send separately in jpeg or cdr
format. Figures must be listed as “Fig.”.
- Papers must end with clear conclusions, except in those cases where
this is not appropriate (e.g. review articles).
References must numbered sequentially in the text, in brackets [ ],
and the respective information must be indicated at the end of the paper,
always including the authors, the title of the referenced work (or book),
and the journal name in italics, using the abbreviations given in “Chemical
Abstracts”, followed by the volume number, number (if applicable), page,
and year of publication in brackets, or, in the case of books, the publisher,
city and year.
