Submissions for the Journal of Cosmetic Science

Journal of Cosmetic Science


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 Editorial Advisory Board is responsible for establishing policy and maintaining the Journal’s high standards. 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 Papers presented before the SOCIETY OF COSMETIC CHEMISTS are the property of the SOCIETY and may not be published in or submitted to other journals.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.
