Instructions for Authors (Author Guidelines)

Author(s) are requested to submit their manuscripts, in accordance with the following format which would help in easy review by the Editorial Board (EB) members.

Title - The title should be informative, specific and concise (as short as possible). It should be in upper case.

Author(s) with affiliations: All the author names should be included in the affiliation followed by their department, university, city and country. For corresponding author the complete affiliation and postal address is required along with contact information.

Abstract - Abstract should convey the manuscript in advance and should describe the main objective(s) of the study clearly. Results and their significance of the study should be summarized in the abstract. 300 words should not exceed in the abstract.

List of abbreviations used or Keywords - You should mention minimum 3-5 keywords not exceeding ten words along with the list of abbreviations if present.

Introduction - The introduction should provide background that puts the manuscript into context and allows readers outside the field to understand the purpose and significance of the study.

Materials and Methods – The materials section should include the detailed descriptions of all types of materials used in the experiment. Methods part should provide sufficient details of the experiment, so that all procedures can be replicable by other researchers. Authors may isolate this into subsections if several methods are described. The methodology should be precise but with sufficient detail to guide scientific replicability.

Results – The result section should describe the main findings and outcomes of an article (research, case study, review etc.). It should be short, clear and comprehensible (using figures & tables). The layout of the result section should be in the same order in which the introduction section is being organized.

Discussions – This section should point out the significance of the results and compare them with previous work using relevant references.

Conclusions - Conclusion ought to be given for the closure of an article and used to highlight the novelty and significance of the work.

Acknowledgments – Here authors and co-authors are required to disclose any potential conflict of interest when submitting their article and you can include sources of financial support, grants, details about anyone who contributed substantially towards the study etc.

References - Only the published and accepted articles need to be included in the list of references.

Annex utilizes the numbered citation (citation-sequence) strategy. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the content, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. If there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "… now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript. Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference as following (preferably PubMed). Since all references will be linked electronically however much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial.

Order of details of a reference should be maintained as below:
Authors (>5 et al.) <space>(Year)<space>Title.<space>Journal name<space>Volume number:<space>page number.<space>doi.

Cite tables in ascending numeric order upon first appearance in the manuscript file and should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. They should be referred to in the text as Table 1, etc. We strongly encourage author to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are need (needed) to be typed, double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same information ought not be displayed in both tables and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.

Note: If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to hold the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.

Figures and their legends ought to be assembled together toward the end of the paper and the preferred file formats for photographic pictures are PNG, TIFF and JPEG. On the off chance that you have made pictures with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.

All images need to be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art+Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close as to the actual image as possible.

Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and capitalized letters for their parts (i.e., Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
Figure legends ought to be written in numerical request on a different sheet.

Tables and Equations as Graphics:
On the off chance that equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Just when tables can't be encoded as XML/SGML they can be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables are reliable and legible throughout all submissions.

Supplementary information:
Discrete items of the Supplementary information (for example, figures, tables) referred to a suitable point in the main content of the paper.
Outline of diagram/figure included as part of the Supplementary data (discretionary).
All Supplementary data is supplied as a solitary PDF document, if possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).
