The manuscript should be typed, double-spaced on standard-sized-paper (8.5″ x 11″) with 1″ margins on all sides. Times New Roman font 12 pt should be used. The fonts used in the text as well as graphics should be restricted to Times New Roman, Symbol and jpg.
The title page should contain a clear, concise and informative title of the article followed by the names and affiliations of the authors. The affiliation should comprise the department, institution, city, and state (or nation) and should be typed as a footnote to the author’s name. The Corresponding Author must indicate his or her complete mailing address, office/cellular phone number, fax number, and email address at the lower left of the Title Page.
The abstract should not more than 200 words and should contain objectives, material and methods, Results and Conclusions. Reviews and mini reviews also require an abstract. Abstract should not be structured. Abstract must be followed by four-six keywords.
This should be brief and indicates aim of the study and the essential back ground information. Introduction should clearly state the hypothesis or purpose statement, how and why the purpose or hypothesis was developed and why the author deems it important.
Material and methods
Please provide concise but complete information about the material and the analytical, statistical and experimental procedures used. This part should be as clear as possible to enable other scientists to repeat the research presented. The use of subheadings to divide the text is encouraged. Primary headings should be in BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS. Secondary or subheadings should be in Bold sentence case. Third level subheadings should be in Italicized sentence Case. In case of animal/human experiments or clinical trials authors must give the details of ethical approval.
Result and Discussion
Data acquired from the research with appropriate statistical analysis described in the methods section should be included in this section. In this part, the same data/ information given in a table must not be repeated in a figure, or vice versa. Tables and Figures should be self-explanatory and it is not acceptable to repeat extensively the numerals from tables into text and give lengthy and unnecessary explanations of the Tables and Figures. Discussion should relate the results to current understanding of the scientific problems being investigated in the field.
This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance.
Reference should be cited in the text by author’s last name & year.
Single author: The author’s name (without initials) and the year of publication eg. (James, 2015).
Two authors: The last name of both the authors and year of publication should be used i.e. (Robert and Evans, 2015).
Three or more authors: The first author’s Last name followed by et al. and year of publication i.e. (Mohammed et al., 2014).
References should be arranged in alphabetical order and in chronological manner.
