Keywords: Author(s) must give about 4-6 key words which can identify the most important subjects covered by the paper. They must be placed at the end of the abstract.


The manuscript should include a brief introduction stating the purpose of the investigation and relating the manuscript to similar previous research. Only information essential to the arguments should be presented.

Materials and Methods

This section must contain specific details about the materials studied, instruments used, specialized chemicals source and related experimental details which allows other research worker to reproduce the results. Obtain permission for all fully borrowed, adapted, and modified tables and provide a credit line in the footnote.

If any animal study was carried out, then the necessary institutional animal ethical committee approval should be taken and should be mentioned in the manuscript. If any human study was carried out, then necessary human ethical committee or appropriate approval should be taken and should be mentioned in the manuscript. A written consent should be taken from the human subjects or patients involved in the study ensuring their acceptance in the study and publication of relevant datas/photos/images in the journal and should be mentioned in the manuscript. The journal will not be responsible if any of the above if not followed and the editor’s decision would be final if any litigation arises during processing or after publishing.

Results and Discussion

The results should be concisely presented. Results part should be clearly mention about the results obtained from the experiment. The discussion part should discuss the results with clear description.

(i) Tables:

Tables should be used wherever necessary and should have rows and columns to correlate the variables .It should be cell- based type (Microsoft word tables or Excel tables). Do not use tabs or hard returns during preparation of tables. Do not send us tables as graphics. Tables should be as compact as possible. Unnecessary rows and columns can be avoided. The table should be double spaced and separated from the text. The font can be of same size used in the text of the manuscript.

Avoid “Ditto” marks. The units used should be in SI nomenclature or the nomenclature common to a particular field. Unusual units or abbreviations can be defined in the legend.

(ii) Figures:

Figures should be used wherever necessary. The figures can be of GIF/TIFF/JPEG/PDF. The figures should be comprehensible for the readers and should help them in understanding the paper. Unnecessary figures should be avoided. Avoid unnecessary colouring and excessive details. The title should be one-line title in bold text with font size 12. Abbreviations can be used if needed and abbreviations that are used only in the figures should be defined in the footnotes to that figure. The title should describe the contents so each illustration can be understood on considering apart from the text. All figures should be numbered in roman numerals and should be cited in the text accordingly. The image/photograph should be cropped to show essential details. Magnification can be indicated by inserting the scale bar. The image/photograph should be clear and of high quality. Poor blurred or out of focus letters/symbols are not acceptable.
