Hence authors need to send us a signed scan copy of copyright form in between the processing of their articles.

Copyright Form


Software and format: Manuscripts should be prepared in English using a word processor. MS Word for Windows and (.doc) files are preferred. The Times New Roman font is preferred. The font size should be 12 point. The page setup is normal A4 size. Experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly. The papers must have an abstract not exceeding 250 words and 4 to 6 Keywords. All papers should have the following sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments (if applicable) and References.

Rules To Be Follow:

1. Title of the paper: The title must concise and informative and should not exceed the 50 to 60 characters (12-15 words) including spaces (with key words appropriate for retrieval purposes) and provide peer readers with a quick overview of the paper's contents. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

2. Name of the author(s) with initials, address and affiliation of the institution where the work was done must be given. Along with the e-mail address of all author. This e-mail address also appears on the first page of the printed article.

3. Abstracts: All papers must have an abstract not more than 250 words of clear, informative and giving significant objectives, methodology, results and conclusion in the paper. Presentation of numerical results should be avoided as far as possible in the abstract.

4. Key words: Between 4 and 6 key words must be provided for the purpose of indexing and information retrieval.

5. Text: The paper must be divided into sections and subheadings starting preferably with 'Introduction' and ending with Conclusion and provide serial numbers to all headings and their sub-headings.

6. Introduction: It should be introduce the research problem that the study was designed to address and its significance. It should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should provide the information for the reader that he/she will need in order to understand and appreciate the science you will report on later in the articles.

7. Materials and Methods: The materials and methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and the relevant literature should be provided in the citation. The important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Mention the trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Subheadings may be used. Methods in general use need not be described in detail. All the data should be applied with statistics. If the manuscript reports on work conducted on vertebrate animals, the appropriate institutional approval number should be listed in this section of the text.

8. Citations: should be given in numbers cover with brackets and bold with superscript. For example: If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration [8], the authors must explain the rationale for their approach [9], and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study [10]. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed [11, 12, 13,].

9. Results and Discussion: may be separate or combined based on the author’s requirement. Tables and figures should be designed to maximize the comprehension of the experimental data. The interpreted results should be explained clearly in discussions and should relate them to the existing knowledge in the field as clearly as possible. Tables, Graphs and figures (Illustrations) should be inserted in to the main text at respective place they should appear when published and should have appropriate numbers and titles with an explanatory heading.

10. Conclusion:State the significance of the results in the conclusion in a few sentences at the end of the paper.

11. References: Cited in the manuscript should be numbered in order of appearance in the manuscript and cited in the text with superscript numbers as mentioned above. The reference number should follow the following format.
