Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences (MJAS) is a peer-reviewed research journal that is devoted to the dissemination of new and original knowledge in all branches of analytical chemistry. Manuscripts submitted may be experimentally based or may be entirely theoretical and should contribute to any phase of analytical measurements and concepts including electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, environmental analysis, separation techniques, spectroscopy, instrumentation, surface analysis, bioanalysis, structures, chemometrics and data processing. Manuscripts dealing with conventional analytical methods should offer a significant, original application of the method, a noteworthy improvement or results on an important analyte.

Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences is indexed in MyAIS (Malaysian Abstracting and Indexing System), International Nuclear Information System (INIS Database) and SCOPUS (Yearly SJR 2019 0.19, SiteScore 1.0, Impact per Publication (0.389), Quartile Q4 (Analytical Chemistry) and H-index of 11). MJAS is also cited in MyCite, an indexing system owned by Malaysian Citation Centre (MCC), the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) Malaysia: SJR 2018 0.152, 5-year Impact Factor of 0.028 (2018), Cited half-life of 2.9, Q3 (Sciences), Q4 (Analytical Sciences) and H-index of 3.

This Journal is published by the Malaysian Analytical Sciences Society (ANALIS) as the sole scientific publication of the Society since 1995. From 2015, the Journal is published in six issues per volume (per year) i.e. in February, April, June, August, October and December.

Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making published articles freely access and downloadable to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Researchers from any countries are invited to publish their research articles in this journal.

Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences is published every two months i.e. in February, April, June, August, October and December of the year. We accept manuscripts both in English and Bahasa Malaysia. However, the articles should have abstracts in both English and Bahasa Malaysia. For non-Malay speaking author, the Bahasa Malaysia abstract will be prepared by the editorial board.

The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other co-authors. It is also the authors’ responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the necessary institution. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability. All enquiries concerning the publication of accepted papers should be addressed to the Editor-in-chief.
