Clearly identify the corresponding author and provide that author’s mailing address (including phone number, fax number, and email address). Use uppercaser for title except the name of species, only the first letter using uppercase.

  • MATERIAL AND METHOD. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: Only relevant modifications should be described.
  • RESULT AND DISCUSSION. Results should be clear and concise Results presented in the tables and figures should not be repeated unnecessarily in the text. The result should be presented without interpretation and followed by the discussion section which should provide an interpretation of the results in relation to findings of other investigators. The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
  • CONFLICT OF INTEREST. All potential conflicts of interest must be stated within the text of the manuscript, under a separate heading titled Disclosures, which should follow the Acknowledgments. This pertains to relationships with any corporation whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the article.
  • CONCLUSION. Conclusions should be stated clearly.The main conclusions/summary of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of Results and Discussion section. Conclusion section is for Research Report /Original Article and Summary is for Literature Review/ Review Article.
  • ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. All acknowledgements including financial support should be mentioned under this heading. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).
  • REFERENCES. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Minimum 20 references for research report/ original article and 30 references for review. References wrote on Vancouver (superscript) Style. In the Vancouver Style, citations within the text of the essay/ paper are identified by Arabic numbers in superscript. This applies to references in text, tables, and figures. The writing process of the article is suggested to use reference manager program (Mendeley, etc.). The Vancouver (Superscript) System assigns a number to each reference as it is cited. A number must be used even if the author(s) is named in the sentence/text. e.g. "Smith10 has argued that...". The original number assigned to the reference is reused each time the reference is cited in the text, regardless of its previous position in the text. When multiple references are cited at a given place in the text, use a hyphen to join the first and last numbers that are inclusive. Use commas (without spaces) to separate non-inclusive numbers in multiple citations e.g. "2,3,4,5,7, it is abbreviated to..". The placement of citation numbers within the text should be carefully considered e.g. a particular reference may be relevant to only part of a sentence. As a general rule, reference numbers should be placed outside full stops and commas and inside colons and semicolons, however, this may vary according to the requirements of a particular journal. Examples - "There have been efforts to replace mouse inoculation testing with in vitro tests, such as enzyme-linked Immunosorbent assays57, 60 or polymerase chain reaction20-22 but these remain experimental." Moir and Jessel maintain “that the sexes are interchangeable”.1

Submit image files (e.g.,electromicrograph) without text content as high- resolution (300 dpi/ppi minimum) TIFF or JPG files. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.
EQUATIONS. Equations (refer with: Eq. 1, Eq. 2,..) should be indented 5 mm (0.2”). There should be one line of space above the equation and one line of space below it before the text continues. The equations have to be numbered sequentially, and the number put in parentheses at the right-hand edge of the text. Equations should be punctuated as if they were an ordinary part of the text.

  • RESEARCH REPORT/ ORIGINAL ARTICLE REVIEW. Articles should be under 3000 to 4000 words and should include references. Use of subheadings in the main body of the text is recommended. Photographs and illustrations are encouraged. Provide a short abstract (250 - 300 words). These are detailed studies reporting original research and are classified as primary literature. The Original Research format is suitable for many different types of studies. It includes full Introduction (background), Methods, Results, and interpretation of findings in Discussion sections.
  • CASE REPORT/ CASE STUDIES. These articles report specific instances of interesting phenomena. A goal of Case Studies is to make other researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might occur. Case reports/ studies present the details of real patient cases from medical or clinical practice. The cases presented are usually those that contribute significantly to the existing knowledge on the field. The study is expected to discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of a disease. These are considered as primary literature and usually, have a word count similar to that of an original article. Clinical case studies require a lot of practical experience.
  • LITERATURE REVIEWS / REVIEW ARTICLES. Review articles give an overview of existing literature in a field, often identifying specific problems or issues and analyzing information from available published work on the topic with a balanced perspective. Review articles are usually long, with the maximum word limit being 3000-6000 or even more, depending on the topic.
