The title should be followed with the name of author/ authors (in block capitals) along with their affiliation and complete address. Senior/ corresponding author should also give his/her email Id.

 

Abstract:

The abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory. It should briefly present the topic and the philosophy behind the paper, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 120 to 200 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense.

Introduction:

The introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

 

Materials and methods:

It should be complete enough, to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Subheadings should be used.

 

Results and Discussion:

The result and discussion should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors' experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the Results but should be put into the Discussion section. The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.

Acknowledgments:

The acknowledgment of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief

In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like 'a' and 'b' after the date to distinguish the works.

 

Examples:

Smith (2008: 25), Jack et al. (2007: 345), (Hanna and Smith, 2009: 21), (Sarah, 2001: 19; Nishinari, 2006 a,b: 21; Kyuto, 2001:2, 2007: 50), (Allen et al., 2004:28)

References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, etc. should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the article text. Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.
