PROGRESS TO DATE

Since the initial publication of Arkivoc in 2000, the journal has expanded from a total of 90 papers in two issues to over 100 papers per year. The Journal Impact Factor (JIF) has risen from 0.4 in 2003 and is currently is in the range 1.05 to 1.25 over the last few years. Arkivoc was ranked 37th among the 56 organic chemistry journals covered by Journal Citation Reports in 2014. Arkivoc was again ranked 28th by Eigenfactor score, a score, which is calculated by eliminating same journal citations and giving greater weightings to citations in higher ranking journals. The journal appears with three types of format: Commemorative Issues dedicated to honoring the achievements of an individual chemist or particular region of the world; Reviews and Accounts Issues highlighting areas of current interest; General Issues open to any author.

The Commemorative Issues, under guidance of two members of the Control Board, are each organized by a Facilitator who monitors the submission of manuscripts, writes a tribute to the Honoree or a background to the Region, and helps to meet the completion date set by the Control Board. It should be emphasized that the fundamental policy of the journal and ARKAT-USA is the publication of sound scientific information with strict peer review (over 85% of General Papers submissions are rejected) completely free of charge to authors and readers. The latter aspect was designed specifically to benefit chemists in developing countries and hence promote the basic human rights of opportunity and education.

An automatic online submission system is employed by Arkivoc whereby authors under the guidance of "Instructions for Authors" (posted on the website) submit papers in a specified format to an electronic monitoring system that directs each paper through technical editing, referee assignment, scientific editing, and finally publishing without the intermediacy of labor-intensive e-mails.
