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). Manuscripts on sample preparation methods/techniques and detection techniques, especially mass spectrometry are also considered, principally if they have a substantive chromatographic component. In addition, approaches dealing with the automation and miniaturization of separation techniques, and sample preparation and/or detection in combination with separation techniques are welcomed.

Journal of Chromatography A values 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 is placed on the degree of novelty and significance of the research and the extent it adds to existing knowledge in separation science. Applications should address cutting-edge research questions and present a certain degree of complexity. The journal discourages submissions limited to the analysis of only one or two compounds or those that are straightforward extensions of published methods to new sample matrices. Furthermore, plagiarism and inadvertent lack of citations will be scrutinized extensively, and are a reason for immediate rejection.

Journal of Chromatography A applies uniform acceptance criteria to all types of submissions (Full-length Research Papers; Short Communications; Technical Notes; Concept Papers; Review article; Discussions and Tutorials), irrespective of whether these are submitted to Regular Issues, Virtual Special Issues, or Virtual Symposium Special Issues.
