- The study should present the results of primary scientific research and it should not have been published elsewhere.
- Detailed description and high technical standards of experiments, statistics, and other analyses are required.
- Conclusions are to be presented in an appropriate fashion without any ambiguity along with the supported data.
- From the time of submission of article to the publication period is called Embargo period(it is limited). Authors may publish abstracts in conference proceedings, but should not distribute copies of manuscripts, or tables and figures from manuscripts, that are under embargo.

» Title of the article
» Contact information
» Running title
Will be at the top of each printed page and cannot exceed 60 characters and spaces.
» Key words
Key words (5-12words) are to be mentioned. Choosing appropriate keywords provide you with a citation advantage since they play a major role when searching huge indexing data bases.
The abstract ( 250 words maximum, including citations) should be clearly written and readily comprehensible to the broad readership of the Journal. It should provide a concise summary of the objectives, methodology, key results, and major conclusions of the study. It should be written in complete sentences, without subheadings.
The Introduction (500 words maximum, including citations) should briefly indicate the objectives of the study and provide enough background information to clarify why the study was undertaken and what hypotheses were tested
» Experimental procedure
Brief but sufficiently complete information to permit a qualified reader to repeat the experiments reported. Only truly new procedures should be described in detail. Cite previously published procedures in references. Modifications of previously published procedures are not to be given in detail except when necessary to repeat the work.
» Materials and Methods
The materials and methods section should be brief but sufficient enough to allow other investigators to repeat the research. References should be given for the published procedures wherever possible; this applies to the original description and existing published modifications. The gender of subjects should be stated. All companies from which materials were obtained should be listed. If materials were obtained from an individual, an affiliation for that individual should be listed. A manuscript that presents only a theory can omit the Materials and Methods section.
The discussion section (1500 words maximum, including citations) should be as concise as possible and should include a brief statement of the principal findings, a discussion of the validity of the observations, a discussion of the findings in light of other published work dealing with the same or closely related subjects, and a statement of the possible significance of the work. Speculations may be included.
Acknowledgements should be used to identify all funding sources. Acknowledgements may also be used to note intellectual, technical or other assistance that does not warrant authorship. Individuals should be informed before the publication of any such acknowledgements and given the opportunity to decline the recognition. Promotional statements are not permitted.
» Conflict of interest
The number of tables used to present data essential to illustrate or prove a point should be kept to a minimum. Very complex or large tables should be submitted as figures. A legend and title are to be provided for each table. Tables are to be placed at the end of the manuscript and each in a seperate page. Legends should be at the end of the table.
Figures are to be placed at the end of the manuscript and each in a seperate page. Figures should have titles and legends containing sufficient detail to make the figure easily understood. Legends should be right below the figure. Authors are responsible for providing digital art that has been properly sized and cropped. Appropriately sized numbers, letters, and symbols used should be no smaller than 2 mm even after reduction. All figures should be created with applications that are capable of preparing high-resolution files acceptable for publication. Although you will initially submit figures with the text in a single word file, we will require submission of figures as separate files at publication-quality resolution for online publication if your paper is accepted.
Human subjects: Obtain the consent from all involved in study only after disclosing the possible outcome or any other situations, regarding the result of the failure of the experiment also. Privacy and strict confidentiality is to be maintained whenever necessary. Do not influence population or individuals by greatly rewarding them for the manipulation purpose. Animal subjects: Laboratory animals are to be treated according to the rules and are to be handled with care. Precautionary measures undertaken while performing the experiment are to be mentioned. Otherwise it will be treated as violation of law. No scientific fraud and falsely research will be entertained. Serious action will be taken regarding the (fraudulent) scientific misconduct. Copyright violations are also considered unethical.
» Supplemental data
Manuscripts must be complete, stand-alone and NOT dependent on supplemental data. Supplemental data will be reviewed as a part of the normal manuscript review process and will be judged by the same rigorous criteria to be important but not essential to the stand-alone manuscript. Only data that are deemed appropriate for the online journal and substantially contribute to the manuscript will be accepted. Supplemental data submitted after the paper has been accepted will not be published.

Open Access pub charges for the authors
Even though we are dependent on the payments from the author publication charges to provide subscription free journals, we tend to charge only the appropriate amount.
Please note that the charges will be levied only for the accepted manuscripts. There are no submission charges.
