The journal of Trends in Biosciences is essentially devoted to the publication of original research papers on all aspects of biosciences. All papers and short communication submitted to Trends in Biosciences must be unpublished original works. The manuscripts in English should be in a finished form and typed on one side of A4 size paper and double spaced throughout with ample margins. Pages should be numbered consecutively beginning from the title page. Text in any format (tables and figure included or separately) on CD in MS word with two hard copies or sent through email to firstname.lastname@example.org as attached file(s) is preferred since it saves retyping.
Research Papers: Each full length of research papers should be covered within 1500 words including tables and illustrations. Short communication should be within 175 words including tables, figures and references, in case of exceeding the limit, payment has to be made for extra materials by the authors. Correct language is the responsibility of the author. No editing or materials changes at the proof stage will be permitted. While short communication will have only title, authors name, address and e-mail followed by text and references. In case of full length paper authors should have the following headings.
Title : The title to be typed in capital and small letters, author names (all capital) and affiliation (capital and small letters with italics fonts). Give e-mail address in italic fonts also. Manuscript must confirm to the journal style (see latest issue)
Abstract: The abstract should indicate the main findings of the papers and typed in bold, single space. It should be not more than 150 words. The abstract should be typed before the main text and intended ca. 2cm to the right of it.
Key words 5-6 keywords in italics should be given.
Tables and figures : Table should be descriptive without and references to the text with heading in bold letters. Each table should be typed on a separate sheet.

Introduction: This should be brief and related to aim of the study. The review of the literature should be pertinent to the theme of the paper. Extensive review and unnecessary details of earlier work should be avoided. Heading “introduction” should not be written.
Materialsand Methods: When methods are well known, citation of the standard work is sufficient. All measurement should be in metric units.
Results and Discussion: The result should be supported by brief and adequate tables, graphs and charts, wherever needed.
Literature Cited: Inthetext, references should be cited as follows: two authors(Ali, and Pervez, 2005), three or more authors (Gaugler, et al., 2001).

Journal titles should be cited in full and in italics, while for books the place of the publication should precede the name of the publisher, Example Strong, D.R. 2002.
