Title Page:

The title page should contain title of the article in boldface, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the address in normal face lower case. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention the address for correspondence and provide a functional e-mail address. 

Abstract:

(12 Font), It should give a brief idea of the manuscript and should not exceed more than 250 words.

Keywords  

Provide and arrange four to five appropriate keywords alphabetically after the abstract.

Introduction

An introduction should start on a new page after the abstract & keywords. The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant recent literature on the subject, the objectives of the research study, and the proposed approach or solution.

Materials and Methods 

Materials and Methods should start as a continuation of the introduction on the same page. All important materials used along with their source shall be mentioned. The main methods used shall be briefly described with appropriate reference. New methods or substantially modified methods may be described in sufficient detail. Methods in general use need not be described in detail. The statistical method and the level of significance chosen shall be clearly stated. 

Results

The results section should start as a continuation of materials and methods on the same page. This section should focus on the execution of stated objectives as given in the introduction part of the research study. It should contain the findings represented in the form of tables, figures, and photographs. All tables and figures must have a title or caption and a legend to make them self explanatory. The data should be statistically analyzed and the level of significance stated.

Discussion 

The discussion section should follow results, deal with the interpretation of results, convey how they help to increase the current understanding of the problem, and should be logical. Unsupported hypotheses should be avoided. The Discussion should state the possibilities the results uncover, that need to be further explored. The Results and Discussion sections when appropriate can be combined as Results and Discussion.

Conclusion

A short, paragraph summarizing the most important finding of the research is required.

Acknowledgments 

Authors should obtain permission to acknowledge from all those mentioned in the Acknowledgements. Please list the source(s) of funding for the study, for each author, and for the manuscript preparation in the acknowledgments section. Also include their source(s) of funding, and acknowledge anyone who contributed materials vital for the study.

References

The references should be listed on a separate sheet and should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetical order). Cite the references in the text by the appropriate number e.g. [1], [2, 3], [4-6], [7, 8-10] and the numbers should be within square brackets. Avoid using abstracts as references. Nothing should be italicized.

REVIEW ARTICLE

Review articles should contain up-to-date information providing comprehensive coverage of relevant literature. Review articles should preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge of the topic. All format requirements are similar to those applicable to Research papers. Review Articles need not be divided into sections such as Materials and methods, and Results and discussion, but should definitely have an abstract and introduction. There is no page limit for the Review Article.

SHORT COMMUNICATIONS

The research and technical communications section of this journal (maximum 3,000 words) is open to interesting results worthy of publication without requiring extensive introduction and discussion. This section should be organized as follows: Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and discussion (combined). Not more than 10 references should be provided. Tables, figures and references are to be arranged in the same way as for research papers. Brevity of presentation is essential for this section.
