Note: As approved by the board of directors of theIranian Society of Crystallography and Mineralogy, the journal does not charge for submission and reviewing of the manuscripts. However, once an article is accepted, the authors are required to pay 30% of the cost of printing (500 000 Rials per page).
 
Publishing Process Steps
1.  The authors should format the manuscript according to the Article Writing Guide in the For Authors section, and upload it along with the Commitment and Agreement Letter, and Conflict of Interest Form to the journal’s website (see the Registration and Submission section).
2. Once submitted, the manuscript will be checked for completeness, adherence to the author guidelines and validity of authors data.
3. After passing the initial screening, the manuscript is checked by the editor and editorial board for the relevance to the journal scope and novelty. If suitable for the journal, it will be sent to three reviewers expert in the field. The editorial screening takes less than ten days and the review process may take a month.
4. The journal uses single-blind review where the reviewers’ identities are kept hidden from authors, while the reviewers know who the authors are.
5. After review, the editor in chief will gather the reviewers comments and make a decision with the editorial board. If the paper needs revision, the reviewers comments revert back to the corresponding author. The authors have to respond to the editor with a revised manuscript in 40 days. In case of a rejection, the author is informed of the final decision.
6. The revised manuscript returned to the journal is referred again to the original reviewers for their comments, and then the final decision on the paper is made by the editorial board. An accepted paper goes into production for final checking and reformatting to fit the journal’s conventions and styles, otherwise the corresponding author is informed about the paper rejection.
7. After copy editing and layout editing of the paper, the authors need to pay the publication charges (30% of the cost of printing) before publication. 
8. The journal will revert the final proofread of the manuscript designed for publication to the corresponding author for minor corrections. Only on the corresponding author's final confirmation, the editorial office will send the article for final publication.
