Guidelines for Authors

The International Journal of Life Sciences (IJLS) publishes research in all disciplines of Life Sciences, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) for life sciences; EcoSystem Management; Remote Sensing and Environmental Engineering; Forestry; Agriculture; Botany, Zoology, Biotechnology; Genetics; Photosynthesis; Green Energy; Microbiology; Environmental Biology; Taxonomy; and Applied Biology. Submission of papers in both basic and applied sciences, including current topics in environment, genomics, biotechnology, and medicinal ethnobiology are encouraged.

Types of papers

The Journal publishes original articles; reviews; letters to the editor; educational perspectives in STEM for life sciences, science history, biographies; and case reports. In all publications, the abstract is limited to 250 words and key words are limited to 8 search entries that are not in the title and abstract.

Original article

The maximum number of words (excluding the title, the abstract, the tables and figure legends) must be less than 3,000. The total number of tables and figures must not exceed 8. The total number of references are recommended not to exceed 50.


The length is less than 6,000 words including tables and figures. Abstract should be less than 250 words.

Case report

Case reports will be welcome; however, a report with not a single but several cases will be recommended.

Letter to the Editor

Educational perspective, including those on History & Biography

This is a new section in this journal that is meant to encourage STEM education in the life sciences; thus, the sole purpose of this section is to advance life sciences through education. Submission of an educational article is by invitation from the editors of this journal. The maximum number of words (excluding the title) must be less than 2,000 including those in the tables and figure legends.


All references must be cited in the APA in-text citation style in Journal of Plant Science Research.

Cite references in the text with author name/s and year of publication in parentheses:

One author: (Asada 1984) or Asada (1984)

  • Two authors: (Badger and Price 1994) or Badger and Price (1994)
  • Three authors or more: (Brand et al. 1975) or Brand et al. (1995)
