A manuscript number will be forwarded within 24 hours to the respective author.
Preparation of Manuscript
Articles have to be written in English, obviously. Writers are required to add an electronic Cover Letter specifically relating to the type of document (e.g., research paper, review papers, case study, etc.) and to ensure that the paper submitted for review / publication is not considered at the same time elsewhere. If you have some external financial assistance or grants then explicitly state the same to prevent potential inconsistencies. The manuscript will contain the full descriptions of the respective author along with all the other writer’s affiliations.

These articles should contain a covering letter, title page, abstract and key words. They should be written under suitable sub-headings. For an impressive and attractive presentation the authors are encouraged to use flowcharts, boxes, cartoons, tables and figures.
These can either be a full length research paper. Research papers should be containing following parts:
- Cover letter
- Title page
- Abstract and key words
- Materials and Methods or Experimental work
- Conflict of Interest
It should contain general information (name, address, e-mail id, contact details including mobile number of the corresponding author), it also mention in brief what is already known about this topic.
2. Title Page
It will contain the title, author’s names and affiliations, running title, address for correspondence including e-mail address and also the total number of pages, figures and tables.
3. Abstract and Keywords
It will start with the following details on a new page: (a) Abstract, (b) Keywords. Excluding the title and key words, it should not exceed 300 words. The abstract has to be concise, clear, informative and not indicative. The abstract must be in a structured form (Aim & Objectives, Methods, Results and Conclusion) and briefly explain what was intended, done, observed and finalized.
Research papers must have 3-5 appropriate keywords that help readers or indexing agencies in cross-indexing the study.
It should provide sufficient background information for the reader to understand and evaluate the results of the present study without referring to previous publications on the same topic.
5. Materials and Methods
This part should treat with the materials and the methods used in research. The process adopted should be described in adequate details to allow the research to be interpreted and repeated by the readers, if desired. The number of subjects, the number of groups, the study design, sources of drugs with dosage regimen or instruments used, statistical methods and ethical aspects must be mentioned under the section. The procedure for collecting the data has to be described. If a procedure is a commonly used procedure it would be sufficient to give a previously published reference. When a procedure (though previously published) is not well known, it is best to explain it briefly. Give explicit descriptions of the changes or new methods.
Data variance should be expressed in terms of the standard mean error (SEM) or standard deviation (SD), along with the number of observations (n). This will state the particulars of the used statistical tests and the degree of significance. When using more than one test, it is important to determine which groups and parameters have been checked.
The results should be reported concisely without comments. They should be described in the text in logical order with appropriate reference to tables and/or figures. Don’t repeat the data given in the tables or figures in the article. Not to present the same data in both tabular and graphical forms.
It should include a critical review of the study results with support from relevant literature. You can put forth new hypotheses or recommendations. Avoid unqualified statements and assumptions not completely backed by the data.
This section should contain only important outcomes of the research. Make sure that the conclusion drawn should tally with the objectives stated under in introduction part.
Acknowledge only those who have contributed to or given technical support for the scientific material. Sources of Financial support sources may be mentioned into the manuscript
10. Conflict of Interest:
Reviewers should decline from reviewing a submission when they have:
- A recent publication or current submission with any author.
- Recently shared an affiliation with any author
- A close personal connection to any author
