The manuscript should be starting with the title page and the text should be arranged in the following order:
- Title Page
- Authors & Co-Authors Details & Their Affiliations
- Materials and Methods
- Results and Discussions
- Tables & figures
- Ethical matter
- Short Communications
- Review Articles
- Submission of Manuscript
- Copyright & Permissions
Title Page: The title should be as short as possible on the first page and provide precise information about the contents. The title should be followed by full names of author (s), affiliations of author (s) and institutional addresses.
Authors & Co-Authors Details & Their Affiliations: Each author must provide their full name including their forenames and surname. The Corresponding Author of the manuscript must be marked with an asterisk*, and should be listed first. In addition the corresponding author must include Telephone and E-mail address at the bottom left corner of the title page. If any of the co-authors are from different organizations, their addresses too should be mentioned and indicated using numbers after their names. Maximum 5 authors should be allowed.
Abstract: Provide on a separate page an abstract of not more than 150-250 words. A concise and factual abstract is required. The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations and references should be avoided.
Keywords: Provide three to six appropriate keywords after the abstract.
Introduction: Shall start immediately after the Abstract, as the next paragraph, but should be typed in double-space. The Introduction should lead the reader to the importance of the study; tie-up published literature with the aims of the study and clearly states the rationale behind the investigation.
Materials and Methods: It should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. All the procedures should be described in detail, previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer’s name and address. Subheadings should be used. Methods in general use need not be described in detail.
Results and Discussions: Results and their significance should be presented clearly and concisely, preferably in the form of graphs and tables which should be self explanatory. It should contain a critical review of the results in the light of relevant literature. Results and Discussion may be combined.
Conclusion: This should state clearly the main conclusions of the research and give a clear explanation of their importance and relevance. Summary illustrations may be included.
Acknowledgement: Acknowledgements should be placed in a separate section after the conclusion. If external funding has been obtained for the study, then that should be mentioned under a separate header “Funding” , after the acknowledgements.
References: The authors are responsible for the accuracy of the bibliographic information. It must be numbered consecutively in the order that they are cited in the text and designated by superscript with square brackets after the punctuation marks ([X]). A list should be included on separate 1 spaced pages at the end of the text. For the proper abbreviations of the journal Titles, refer to “ Chemical Abstracts ”. The style and punctuation of the references should Confirm to the following examples:
- Journal Articles: Hingorani NG and Gyugyi L, Understanding FACTS, concepts and technology of Flexible AC Transmission systems, piscatway, NJ: IEEE press, 2000.
- A Book: Edwards SA. The Nanotech Pioneers, Wiley-VCH Verlag, Weinheim, 2006, pp. 1-14.
- Patent: Aviv H, Friedman D, Bar-Ilan A and Vered M. Submicron emulsions as ocular drug delivery vehicles, U.S. Patent US 5496811, 1996.

Tables & figures:
- Tables: Each table must be given on a separate page with a brief but complete and self explanatory caption so that the reader can easily understand the results presented in the table. Please do not duplicate material that is already presented in the figures.
- Figures: Photos or drawings must have a good contrast of dark and light. Legends of figures should be brief, but complete and self- explanatory so that the reader can easily understand the results presented in the figure. Please do not duplicate material that is already presented in the tables.
Ethical Matter: Authors using experimental animals and human subjects in their investigation must seek approval from the appropriate Ethical Committee. The method section must include a statement to prove that the investigation was approved and that informed consent was obtained. Authors have to submit scan copy of their Approval Certificate as an attachment via editor’s email id and in cover note they have to mention their protocol number.
Short Communications: The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 10 pages in length in total. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion- all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.
Review Articles: Should be about 10-15 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers. Review articles need not be divided into sections such as materials and Methods and Results and Discussion, but should definitely have an Abstract, Keywords and Introduction, if necessary.
Submission of Manuscript: All manuscripts (must be in English and in MS Word format) and should be submitted via our online system or through email firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment for quick evaluation.
