Dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic science INFORMATION FOR JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE AUTHORS The JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE publishes papers concerned with cosmetics or the sciences underlying cosmetics, as well as other papers of interest to SCC members. In particular, the JOURNAL welcomes papers concerned with cosmetics, cosmetic products, fragrances, their formulation and their effects in skin care or in overall consumer well-being, as well as papers relating to the sciences underlying cosmetics, such as human skin physiology, color physics, physical chemistry of colloids and emulsions, or psychological effects of olfaction in humans. Papers of interest to the cosmetic industry and to the understanding of the cosmetic markets are also welcome for publication. The Editor relies on the advice of reviewers who are experts in the field in deciding whether a submission has sufficient scientific merit to warrant publication. All papers presented before a meeting or seminar of the SOCIETY OF COSMETIC CHEMISTS, or those papers submitted directly to the Editor will be considered for publication in the JOURNAL. Papers presented before the SOCIETY OF COSMETIC CHEMISTS are the property of the SOCIETY and may not be published in or submitted to other journals. Only if the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE is unable to publish a presented paper, may it be published in another journal of the author's choice. Results concerning animal (not human) physiology are outside of the scope of the JOURNAL, therefore manuscripts reporting results related to it will not be taken into consideration for publication in the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE. Papers reporting on the anti-oxidant properties of botanical extracts should show that the anti-oxidant activity is due to a scavenging activity, and not to the artifactual protection of the experimental target of the pro-oxidant because of the addition of excess target for that pro-oxidant. Papers should also describe an effect of the botanical extract on some clinical endpoints (whitening, roughness, redness, etc) with human volunteers. Papers that do not meet these two criteria will not be taken into consideration for publication in the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE. All published papers are eligible for the following awards: ALLAN B. BLACK AWARD The Allan B. Black Award is presented in December to the author(s) of the Best Paper on Make-Up Technology published in the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE or presented at the preceding Annual Meeting. The award consists of a scroll and honorarium to be shared among all authors if applicable. There are no Honorable Mentions for this award. The Committee can recommend that no award be given in any year. This shall in no way affect future selections or the size of the award in future years.
JOSEPH P. CIAUDELLI AWARD The Joseph P. Ciaudelli Award is presented to the Best Article appearing in the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE on the subject of hair care technology. The Award, however, should only be granted when, in the opinion of the Committee, there is a paper that merits the Award. The award consists of a scroll and honorarium to be shared among all authors if applicable. There are no Honorable Mentions for this award. The Committee can recommend that no award be given in any year. This shall in no way affect future selections or the size of the award in future years. DES GODDARD AWARD The Des Goddard Award is presented to the author(s) of the Most Innovative Paper or Student Technical Poster on the topic of Polymer Science related to Cosmetics or Personal Care presented at the preceding Annual Meeting or published in the JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE. The award consists of a scroll and honorarium to be shared among all authors if applicable. There are no Honorable Mentions for this award. The Committee can recommend that no award be given in any year. This shall in no way affect future selections or the size of the award in future years. SUBJECT MATTER The JOURNAL will consider papers for publication in the following categories, provided they are prepared in proper scientific style and adequately referenced: 1. Original Articles: Descriptions of original research work in cosmetics or related areas. 2. General Articles: Articles of a general character may be considered for publication providing they are of a scientific and technical nature. These articles may be concerned with newer analytical techniques, developments in dermatology, toxicology, etc. 3. Review Articles: Intended to present an overview of recent advances in a specific area related to cosmetics. The author of such a review is expected to be actively engaged in the area and capable of presenting a critical evaluation of published reports of a scientific and technical nature. �����������������������������������������������������������������������;�������������������������� the Editorial Committee. 4. Technical Notes: Relatively short manuscript containing new information obtained by laboratory ��������������;����se do not contain the depth or extent of research involved in an Original Article. 5. Letters to the Editor: Comments on JOURNAL articles are invited, as well as brief contributions on any aspect of cosmetic or related science that does not warrant publication of a full-length paper in one of our other categories. May include figures and/or references, but brevity is necessary.
