The manuscript should be presented in the following manner and divided into sections such: Title page, Abstract, Keywords, Details of Corresponding Author’s, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, References Tables and figures should be cited consecutively in the text.

Cover Letter: The corresponding author will be required to submit covering letter disclosing all possible conflicts of interest along with the manuscript. Full contact details with e-mail IDs of the corresponding author must be clearly mentioned.

Organization of Manuscript:
Manuscript should be type on Page size: A4, written in 12 font size in Times New Roman, double spacing must be used, with margins of at least 1 inch on all sides. Pages should be numbered consecutively, starting with the title page.

Original Research Articles:
Title Page:
Title page contains title of the manuscript in bold face, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, title case (font size 12) followed by the address of authors in normal face, lower case (font size 12). Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. Full names may be given in some instances to avoid confusion. Followed by the author names, please provide the complete postal address or addresses with pin code number of the place(s), where the research work has been carried out. If the publication originates from several institutes, the affiliation of each author should be clearly stated by using superscript Arabic numbers after the name and before the institute. The author to whom correspondence should be directed must be indicated with an asterisk. At the bottom left corner of this page, please mention “*For correspondence” and provide a functional e-mail address of the corresponding author to whom all correspondence (including galley proofs) is to be sent.

An abstract not exceeding 250 words (for Short Communications between 60 and 80 words) should be provided typed on a separate sheet. Abstract should include aims, methods, results and conclusion.

Up to 4-6 keywords must be provided in alphabetical order, preferably taken from Index Medicus. These keywords should be typed at the end of the abstract.

It should be a concise statement of the background to the work presented, including relevant earlier work, suitably referenced. It should be started in a separate page after keywords.

Materials and Methods:
It shall be started as a continuation to introduction on the same page. All important materials and equipments, the manufacturer’s name and, if possible, the location should be provided. The main methods used shall be briefly described, citing references. New methods or substantially modified methods may be described in sufficient detail. The statistical method and the level of significance chosen shall be clearly stated.

The important results of the work should be clearly stated and illustrated where necessary by tables and figures. The statistical treatment of data and significance level of the factors should be stated wherever necessary. Data that is not statistically significant need only to be mentioned in the text – no illustration is necessary.

This section should deal with the interpretation of results, making the readers to understanding of the problem taken and should be logical. The discussion should state the scope of the results, which need to be further explored. Results and discussion of the work can also be combined under one section, Results and Discussion.

Concisely summarizes the principal conclusions of the work and highlights the wider implications. This section should not merely duplicate the abstract.

It highlights the information regarding research funding agency, facilitation provided by institutional/research lab etc.

Citations of literature within the text must be presented in numerical order and should be set in square brackets, thus [1]. Only the papers and books that have been published or are in press may be cited. Please give the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) if the paper is not yet in print. Please note that website addresses must not be included as a reference, but should be inserted in the text directly after the information to which they refer. Please note the following examples.

The tables should be numbered in sequence with the body of the text. Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Tables should be headed with a short, descriptive caption. They should be formatted with horizontal lines only: vertical ruled lines are not required. Footnotes in capital letters normal face to tables should be indicated with a), b), c) etc. and typed on the same page as the table.

Should be inserted within the text where it is to be incorporated. All figures must be referred to in the text and numbered with Arabic numerals in the sequence in which they are cited. Each figure must be accompanied by a legend explaining in detail the contents of the figure and are to be typed under the figures. Graphs and bar graphs should preferably be prepared using Microsoft Excel and submitted as Excel graph pasted in Word. Alternatively photographs can be submitted as JPEG images. Keys to symbols, abbreviations, arrows, numbers or letters used in the illustrations should not be written on the illustration itself but should be clearly explained in the legend.

Review articles:
Reviews are written by researchers of considerable experience in the field concerned. The authors should review the recent trends or advances in that field in the light of their own work. The major portion of the above articles should deal with the up-to-date developments in the field in the last 3-5 years. Authors are advised to search medline and other databases on the internet, apart from collecting information using conventional methods. These articles should contain a covering letter, title page, summary (need not be structured) and key words. They should be written under appropriate sub-headings. The authors are encouraged to use flowcharts, boxes, cartoons, tables and figures for better presentation.

Article Proofs:
Page proofs are sent to the designated author through e-mail. They must be carefully checked and returned the revised manuscript within 48 hours of receipt.

Authors are asked to sign a warranty and copyright agreement upon acceptance of their manuscript, before the manuscript can be published. The Copyright Transfer Agreement can be downloaded here (in editable PDF).
