Author Guidelines

Manuscript Preparation

Research papers

Original papers should present unpublished new scientific findings and should not exceed 10 printed pages except where it is needed otherwise. These papers present original research and address a clearly stated specific hypothesis or question. They should provide novel approaches and new insights into the problem addressed and should be arranged under the following headings: Title of paper, author(s) and their affiliation, abstract, brief introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, acknowledgements, references, figures, tables.

Short communications

These are for a concise, but independent report representing a significant contribution in the field. Short reports of new results of special interest or article having new future dimension are welcomed within 4-5 printed pages only and could include two figures or tables. It should have at least 8 references. Short communications will also send for peer review.

Reviews Articles

Reviews should be critically analyzed with continuous flow of literatures in terms of events NOT years and should not exceed 15 printed pages However; editor may take decision in case of exceeding pages provided the review is proved worthy and readers to be more benefited in wider views. These can be an attempt by one or more authors to sum up the current state of the research on a particular topic. Ideally, the author collects the information relevant to the topic, and then sorts it all out into a coherent view of the “state of the art” as it now stands.

Review Articles focus on : • the main research contributors in the field : recent major advances and discoveries made ; significant gaps in the research ; current debates and views and the future strategies or directions .Only review articles from experts in the field will be considered for publication. The potential authors are advised to contact the editorial office for this purpose.

General Instruction

  • All manuscript should include Title, authors/authors name (unaccompanied by degree/degrees) and present address (marking corresponding author with along with fax number and email address), Abstract (concisely stating the scope of the work and give the principal findings in single spaced preferably with in 150 words), keywords (maximum 6 words), Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and discussion, conclusion and references should be the components of a research paper.

  • The review paper should have headings and sub-headings. The review should be illustrated with data in tabular form, bullets form etc . If needed, line drawing could be included. As far possible ,the figures should be original and while taking figures from other sources it should be done after getting permission from the copy right holders. Such letters should be attached with the paper. Same is applicable to photographs.

Instructions regarding formatting

  • Papers should be submitted to the editor, typed in double spaced on one side of the page only. Clarity, brevity and conciseness are essential in form, style, punctuation, spelling and use of italics manuscripts should conform to the best usage in the leading journals. Numerical data and calculations should be carefully checked.

  • Each table should have a heading stating its content clearly and concisely. Places at which the table is inserted should be indicated in the text. Research article must conclude with a summary drawing attention to the main facts and conclusions.

  • All illustrations must be referred to in the text specifically. Roman numerals are to be used in numbering the plate and also in the text. Individual illustrations within a plate should be designated by Arabic numerals. Line drawing will be preferred because of both the lower cost of production and presentation.

The title page must provide the title in English, a short title of not more than 45 characters (including spaces) to be used as running head, up to five topical key words in English for subject indexing, the full postal address of the corresponding author to whom proofs will be sent. The title should be brief and should indicate the species studied. Subtitles are not encouraged.

  • The abstract should not exceed 150 words, should be one paragraph and be free of references and abbreviations. It should indicate clearly the scope and main conclusions of the paper.

  • The introduction should give the pertinent background to the study and should explain why the rearch was done.

  • The materials and methods (or methodology) should give essential details, including experimental design and statistical analysis.

  • The results should present the findings of the research. They should be free from discussion. Results should be written in the past tense.

  • The discussion should cover, but not simply repeat the new findings and should present the author's results in broader context of other work on the subject interpreting them with a minimum of speculation.

  • The acknowledgements should be as brief as possible
