☙ General Information ❧
The study should present the results of scientific research and it should not have been published elsewhere. If an abstract has already been published you need to mention the same in the cover letter. If any other manuscripts have been published from the same project this information also needs to be included in the cover letter.
- Detailed description and high technical standards of experiments, statistics, and other analyses are required.
- Conclusions are to be presented in an appropriate fashion without any ambiguity along with the supported data.
- From the time of submission of article to the publication period the manuscript cannot be submitted elsewhere and needs an official withdrawal permission from publisher to do so. In case the author fails to do so this can be presented to COPE and further action will be taken according to the suggestions received from COPE jury. Also withdrawal after receiving the first decision is charged $150 USD.
- Authors may publish abstracts in conference proceedings, but should not distribute copies of manuscripts, or tables and figures from manuscripts, that are yet to be published i.e., still under consideration with publisher.
- Plagiarism is considered unethical and a misconduct. Plagiarism test is done using ithenticate and authors resorting to Plagiarism need to face rejection and further consequences according to COPE depending upon the severity of the result.

✍ Title of the article
It should contain no more than 30 words. No abbreviations are allowed. Relevance of title to the submitted manuscript is important.
✍ Contact information
Complete information of authors like Full name, address, phone number, Email address, Fax, Discipline of the author, Affiliations is to be mentioned. Corresponding author is to be mentioned clearly. His address will be used for correspondence during the prepublication and post publication of the manuscript. First author should be mentioned first in the order and follow the priority.
✍ Author names and affiliations
We provide our authors with a choice of double blind peer review or single blind peer review. Our standard is single blind peer review, but authors opting for double blind peer review need to skip this section and the above section of contact information but provide the details in cover letter which is not accessible by reviewers.
✍ Running title
Will be at the top of each printed page and cannot exceed 60 characters and spaces.
✍ Key words
Key words (5-12words) are to be mentioned. Choosing appropriate keywords provide you with a citation advantage since they play a major role when searching huge indexing data bases. List them in a line seperated by comas.
The abstract ( 250 words maximum, including citations) should be clearly written and readily comprehensible to the broad readership of the Journal. It should provide a concise summary of the objectives, methodology, key results, and major conclusions of the study.
The Introduction (500 words maximum, including citations) should briefly indicate the objectives of the study and provide enough background information to clarify why the study was undertaken and what hypotheses were tested
✍ Experimental procedure
Brief but sufficiently complete information to permit a qualified reader to repeat the experiments reported. Only truly new procedures should be described in detail. Cite previously published procedures in references. Modifications of previously published procedures are not to be given in detail except when necessary to repeat the work.
✍ Materials and Methods
The materials and methods section should be brief but sufficient enough to allow other investigators to repeat the research. References should be given for the published procedures wherever possible; this applies to the original description and existing published modifications. The gender of subjects should be stated. All companies from which materials were obtained should be listed. If materials were obtained from an individual, an affiliation for that individual should be listed. A manuscript that presents only a theory can omit the Materials and Methods section.
This section should present clearly but precisely the experimental findings. Only results essential to establish the actual point of the work should be included. Numerical data should be analyzed using appropriate statistical tests.
The discussion section (1500 words maximum, including citations) should be as concise as possible and should include a brief statement of the principal findings, a discussion of the validity of the observations, a discussion of the findings in light of other published work dealing with the same or closely related subjects, and a statement of the possible significance of the work. Speculations may be included.
This section gives a precise and summarizing statement of the results and, if relevant, the prospects for application of the results in the various political, social and technical arenas are assessed. The section should begin with a clear statement of the principal findings. The implications of your findings should be discussed within a realistic framework.
Acknowledgements should be used to identify all funding sources. Acknowledgements may also be used to note intellectual, technical or other assistance that does not warrant authorship. Individuals should be informed before the publication of any such acknowledgements and given the opportunity to decline the recognition. Promotional statements are not permitted.
✍ Conflict of interest
Authors should disclose in a cover letter sent to the editor any associations that represent a potential conflict of interest. These include a current or pending relationship as a consultant for the company supporting the research or manufacturing products being tested, a financial or managerial interest in such a company, or intellectual property rights that might be affected by publication of the results of the research reported in a manuscript. Upon receipt of this information, an editor may require that a footnote disclosing the potential conflict be added to the manuscript.
Authors affiliations should be their home institutions at the time when their primary contribution to the research was made. If an author's current affiliation differs, the current affiliation may be listed in the Acknowledgements.
References are to be cited in text by number and not by author and date. They are to be numbered consecutively in the order of appearance. References for journals and books should be in the following styles:
