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.
