INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

It is important that authors prepare their manuscripts according to established specifications. The authors are strongly encouraged to read instructions carefully before preparing a research manuscript for submission and publication in our journal. The manuscripts should be checked carefully for grammatical errors. All the articles are subjected to peer review.


Article Types

Four types of manuscripts may be submitted:

  1. Original Research Articles
  2. Review Articles
  3. Short Communications
  4. Case Reports


Original Research articles

The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the authors' full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author E-mail information.

The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 100 to 200 words in length.

Following the abstract, about 3 to 6 keywords that will provide indexing references.

Introduction: It should be provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and methods: It should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Subheadings should be used.

Results: should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense.

The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper.

The Acknowledgment of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.

References
In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by et al.,

References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order.

Short Communications

Short Communications are
(1) Abstracts are limited to 100 words;
(2) instead of a separate Materials and Methods section, experimental procedures may be incorporated into Figure Legends and Table footnotes;
(3) Results and Discussion should be combined into a single section.


Review Articles:

Review articles should be about 18 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic.


Case Reports:

Prescribed word limit is upto 1500 words excluding upto 15 references and abstract (150 words). Case reports should be written under the following headings: Abstract (unstructured), Key-words, Introduction, and Case report, Discussion, References, Tables and Legends in that order. Pictures/images should be submitted separately in jpg or jpeg format.
