Applied Catalysis A: General publishes original papers on all aspects of catalysis of basic and practical interest to chemical scientists in both industrial and academic fields, with an emphasis onnew understanding of catalysts and catalytic reactions, new catalytic materials, new techniques, and new processes, especially those that have potential practical implications.

Papers that report results of a thorough study or optimization of systems or processes that are well understood, widely studied, or minor variations of known ones are discouraged. Authors should include statements in a separate section "Justification for Publication" of how the manuscript fits the scope of the journal in the cover letter to the editors. Submissions without such justification will be rejected without review.

The journal accepts original Research Papers, Reviews, invited Perspective and Feature articles and Letters to the Editor.

Submitted manuscripts should contain sufficient details of the description of methods and characterization results of catalysts, reactants, and products that meet the prevalent standards in the catalysis field, such that it is possible for others in the field to reproduce observations and data. Reproducibility of data and/or error analysis should be included. Relevant experimental conditions and/or model parameters should be included in figure captions or table footnotes. Submissions not meeting these requirements will be rejected without review.
