ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering seeks to provide authors rapid editorial decisions by quickly identifying manuscripts that are not likely to be of broad interest to the readers of the journal. These manuscripts are returned to authors after careful review by our editorial team, prior to external peer review. Such rapid decision making allows authors to expeditiously find alternative routes for publishing their work. The criteria used by ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering in making these editorial decisions include those used commonly by all scientific journals, such as lack of explanations, mechanisms, or testable hypotheses for observed data; inadequate error and uncertainty analyses; inadequate validation or sensitivity analyses of computational work; failure to summarize how the contribution advances the current state of the field; and a sufficiently inadequate use of language or organization such that the scientific advances of the work can not be adequately assessed. Such criteria have been previously described in editorials by other ACS journals.(1) In making decisions on each manuscript prior to sending for peer review, our editorial team applies three additional criteria, including some that are unique to the field of sustainable chemistry and engineering.
