Author Guidelines

Manuscript Preparation


Authors must follow guide for authors strictly, failing which the manuscripts would be rejected without review. Editors reserve the right to adjust the style to certain standards of uniformity.


Follow this order when preparing the manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion (or separate Results and Discussion), Conclusion, Acknowledgements, References, Tables and Figures. The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk. All other footnotes (except for table footnotes) should be avoided. Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article.

Italicize all scientific names. Use British spellings.

Text Layout

Use single spacing with full justified. Ensure that each new paragraph is clearly indicated. Present tables and figure legends on separate pages at the end of the manuscript. Number all pages consecutively, use 11 or 12 points font size and Arial/Times Roman font. Line numbers on each page of text are also helpful for reviewers.


Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.

Article Structure

 Title and Sub-Sections

Avoid abbreviations and formulae (where possible). Divide your article into clearly defined title and sub-sections. Any sub-sections may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line. Use bold face, lower case letter type for title and sub-sections.
