Aims & Scope


Open Journal of Synthesis Theory and Applications (OJSTA) is an open access journal published quarterly. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in different areas of Synthesis.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The areas covered by Open Journal of Synthesis Theory and Applications (OJSTA) include but are not limited to the following fields:

  • · Amino Acid Synthesis
  • · ATP Synthesis
  • · Biosynthesis
  • · Catalytic Synthesis
  • · Chemical Synthesis
  • · Chemosynthesis
  • · Dehydration Synthesis
  • · DNA Synthesis
  • · Linear Synthesis
  • · Nucleosynthesis
  • · Organic Synthesis
  • · Paal–knorr Synthesis
  • · Peptide Synthesis
  • · Photosynthesis
  • · Protein Biosynthesis
  • · RNA Synthesis
  • · Total Synthesis

  • We are also interested in:

    1) Short reports—2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper;

    2) Book reviews—Comments and critiques.
