Journal of The Indian Society of Soil Science

Hints For The Preparation and Submission of Papers

Full-length articles, short communications, and book reviews, and review articles are published in the Journal. Review articles and book reviews are only by invitation. Full-length articles and short communications should report results of original investigations in Soil Science or kindred branches of science. Once it is decided to contribute an article or a short communication for publication in the Journal, the author(s) are advised to consult a latest issue of the Journal and get himself/herself/themselves acquainted with the minute details of the format and style of the Journal.

It is desirable to submit manuscript in MS Word document; double line space; Times New Roman; font size 12. Manuscripts should be prepared with page and line numbered with wide margins and double spacing throughout, i.e. also for abstracts, footnotes and references (except tables). Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc. should be numbered.

Full-Length Articles

Full-length article comprises the following sections - Short title; Title; Author/Authors Institution and Address with PIN (postal) code; Abstract (along with key words); Introduction; Materials and Methods; Results and Discussion; Conclusions; Acknowledgments (if any); References; Tables and figures (if any).

Short Title: A shortened title (approximately of 30 characters) set in capital letters should convey the main theme of the paper.

Short Communication

Conceptually short communication is a first report on new concept, ideas and methodology which the author(s) would wish to share with the scientific community and that the detailed paper would follow. In the short communications, the sections on abstract, materials and methods, results and discussion, and conclusion are omitted; but the material is put concisely in the same sequence but without formal sections. The other instructions are the same as in the case of the full-length articles.

No abbreviations of periodicals are acceptable. The list of references should be typed as follows:
