List the affiliations as cited in the authors section.
Complete information of each author like Full name, Discipline of the author, address, phone number, Email address, Fax, etc., Corresponding author is to be mentioned clearly. The same email address will be used for correspondence during the prepublication and post publication of the manuscript.
Each author contribution toward the manuscript has to be mentioned clearly in a table
Count of words in abstract, words in manuscript, no. of tables, no. of figures, no. of references and the information of any other supplementary material should be provided.
You can suggest few reviewers if you can.
Title of the article
It should be precise, clear and relevant.
Title for listing in every page.
Relevant key words (5-10) provide better indexing.
The abstract (500 words maximum) should be clearly written and readily comprehensible to the broad readership of the Journal. It should provide a concise summary of the objectives, methodology, key results, and major conclusions of the study. Graphical Abstracts are also encouraged, in fact expected.
The Introduction should briefly indicate the objectives of the study and provide enough background information to clarify why the study was undertaken and what hypotheses were tested
Materials and Methods
The materials and methods section should be brief but sufficient enough to allow other investigators to repeat the research. References should be given for the published procedures wherever possible; this applies to the original description and existing published modifications. The gender of subjects should be stated. All companies from which materials were obtained should be listed. If materials were obtained from an individual, an affiliation for that individual should be listed. A manuscript that presents only a theory can omit the Materials and Methods section.
This section should present clearly but precisely the experimental findings. Only results essential to establish the actual point of the work should be included. Numerical data should be analyzed using appropriate statistical tests.
The discussion section should be as concise as possible and should include a brief statement of the principal findings, a discussion of the validity of the observations, a discussion of the findings in light of other published work dealing with the same or closely related subjects, and a statement of the possible significance of the work. Speculations may be included.
This section gives a precise and summarizing statement of the results and, if relevant, the prospects for application of the results in the various political, social and technical arenas are assessed. The section should begin with a clear statement of the principal findings. The implications of your findings should be discussed within a realistic framework.
Human subjects: Obtain the consent from all involved in study only after disclosing the possible outcome or any other situations, regarding the result of the failure of the experiment also. Privacy and strict confidentiality is to be maintained whenever necessary. Do not influence population or individuals by greatly rewarding them for the manipulation purpose.
Animal subjects: Laboratory animals are to be treated according to the rules and are to be handled with care. Precautionary measures undertaken while performing the experiment are to be mentioned. Otherwise it will be treated as violation of law. No scientific fraud and falsely research will be entertained. Serious action will be taken regarding the (fraudulent) scientific misconduct. Copyright violations are also considered unethical.
Acknowledgements should be used to identify all funding sources. Acknowledgements may also be used to note intellectual, technical or other assistance that does not warrant authorship. Individuals should be informed before the publication of any such acknowledgements and given the opportunity to decline the recognition. Promotional statements are not permitted.
