- The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and footnote. The Editors reserve the right to adjust the style to specific standards for uniformity.

Article Length: The total number of pages of the article relies on the authors’ will, on an average, articles may be 10-25 pages long including the references. The Editors generally encourage brevity, yet providing the sufficient details, for all articles. Short Communications and case reports must not exceed 6 printed pages; these will be given priority for rapid publication.

TEXT of the submission file:The text should be single-spaced; please use a 12-point font; employ italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses) if needed;

Framework of articles:


Title: Full title of the article should be mentioned. However, it should be concise and informative. Avoid using abbreviations and formulae in titles where possible.

Authors names: All co-authors and their current affiliations must be present after the title.The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and footnote.

Abstracts: A concise abstract briefly stating the general scope, methods used, main results and major conclusion of the article, with a word limit of 250 is required. It should be free from any subheading and references or unexplained abbreviations. If essential, abbreviations must be defined at their first mention in the abstract. The abstract should be a standalone piece accurately reflecting the contents of the article as many readers read only this portion of the article. As many electronic databases scan only the title and abstract of the articles, it will be beneficial if as many likely key words of the articles are used in the text of the abstract as possible.

Keywords: A minimum of 6 keywords must be provided in alphabetical order after the Abstract. Avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts (for example, 'and', 'of').  In case of abbreviations, only those firmly established in the field may be eligible.

Framework of Research Articles:


This section should provide adequate background knowledge on the article’s subject matter already known in the field along with the reasons to conduct the present study. The length of the introduction section must be appropriately match the discussion section, neither too short nor too long. Reference number should be included in the text in consecutive order.

Materials and Methods:

This section should provide sufficient details of the methods employed in the study to enable the work to be repeated by other researchers. If the research study involves human or animal subjects (patients/lab animals) the number of study subjects and their demographic characteristics should be mentioned. Satisfactory reasoning for selection of specific groups must be clearly mentioned. The place and time period of the study is mandatory to be described in the article. If a previously published method has been used with modifications all such modifications should be described. In case of data collection, the methods for its collection, all sources of information gathering; and the tools/equipments used in the study should be fully mentioned (including their model’s and manufacturer’s details). Medications/chemicals used in the study should be precisely explained. If a new/ unfamiliar method has been used in the study, it must be described in more detail with the reasons to use this specific method. Statistical methods, software and type of statistical methods must be satisfactorily stated.


State the clear and concise results and draw attention in the text of results section to important details shown in tables and figures. In case of few/simple findings of the study, the results may be mentioned only in text form; whileif multiple informational findings are to be presented these should be in the form of tables/figures/graphs, as seems appropriate, with their explanation in the result section. Reiteration of findings must be avoided in the text of the Result.


In this section the results of the study should be interpreted and the significance of results should be pointed out in the light of previously published literature on the subject matter. However, avoid extensive discussions of published literature. Proper reference of the previous studies must be provided. Important/ new findings of the study should be specially emphasized.

Authors’ Contribution:

If more than one author authors the article, the individual contribution of each co-author must be mentioned under this heading.


An expression of appreciation may be paid to supporters who do not meet the criteria for authorship but have helped the researchers in any other form (technical help, writing or proof reading of manuscript etc.) at the end of the article before the references.

Funding Statement:

Authors should specify any sources of funding (institutional, private and corporate financial support) if received for the work reported in their paper at the time of submitting the paper. This information should contain the name of the funding organization/s and the grant number, mentioned at the end of the article under the heading ‘FUNDING’, directly after the Acknowledgements (if applicable) and Declaration of Conflicting Interests, and prior to the References. The funding agency should be written out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets, e.g.

This work was supported by the Medical Research Council [grant number xxx].

If there was no funding, the following wording should be used:

“This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.”

Any suppliers of materials should be named and their location (town, state/county, country) included in the section of MATERIAL and METHODS.

Multiple grant numbers should be separated by comma and space. If the research was supported by more than one agency, the different agencies should be separated by semi-colon, with “and” before the final funder, e.g.:

This work was supported by the Foundation [grant numbers aaaa, bbbb]; the Environmental Research Council [grant number cccc]; and the Economic Development Research Council [grant number zzzz].

Indirect funding, if received, must also be declared in the funding statement. Indirect funding includes third-party entities receiving funding from any industry, where the funder could be seen to have a vested interest in the results of a study.

Appendices/Supplementary Materials:

If the article has more than one appendix, name theses as Appendix-A, Appendix-B, etc. with separate numbering of relevant equations, formulae, tables and figures: e.g., Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), Table A.1; Fig. A.1 etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) Table B.1; Fig. B.1and so on.


All references must be complete and accurate.

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa).

References must be listed in the numerical system (Vancouver style). All references should be numbered sequentially (in square brackets, […]) as they appear for the first time in the text and listed in the same numerical order in the reference section. Bibliographies cited in tables and figures should be numbered according to the site where the corresponding table or figure is first referenced.

The reference numbers must be finalized and the bibliography must be fully formatted before submission.

Online citations should include the date of access.

Take special care of the punctuation as described in the examples mentioned below.

Avoid using superscript in the in-text citations and reference section.

Abstracts, unpublished data, and personal communications (which can only be included if prior permission has been obtained) should not be given in the reference section, but they may be mentioned in the text and details should be provided as footnotes.

The authors are encouraged to use a recent version of EndNote (version 5 and above) or Reference Manager (version 10) when formatting their reference list, as this allows references to be automatically extracted.
