Those of high quality (not previously published and not under consideration for publication in another journal) will be published without delay.

Manuscript Format
The preferred format of all manuscript is MS Word. Illustrations (figures) and images must be inserted in the manuscript at the position they should appear when published.

Preparation of Manuscript
Mode of Presenting Paper is English. Each manuscript should be typed single-spaced on A4 (8.5" ×11") paper size with 1 inch margins. The manuscript shall be prepared in Times New Roman font using a font size of 12. Title shall be in a font size 14. All section titles in the manuscript shall be in font size 12, bold face capitals. Subtitles in each section shall be in font size 12, bold face lower case. The pages shall be numbered consecutively with a numbers, beginning with title page, ending with the last page. It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, 1. Introduction, 2. Materials and Methods, 3. Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement and References.

Title Page
Title page should contain title of the paper in bold face, 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. The author to whom all correspondence be addressed should be denoted by an asterisk mark. The title should be as short as possible and precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention “* Address for correspondence” and provide a functional e-mail address. Address of the corresponding author to whom all correspondence may be sent should be given only if it is different from the address already given under authors' names.

Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.

Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract

Introduction A short introduction of the research problem followed by a brief review of literature and objective of the research.

Materials and Methods
Describe the materials used in the experiment, year of experimentation, site etc. Describe the methods implied for collection of data in short.

Results and Discussion
This segment should focus on the fulfillment of stated objectives as given in the introduction. It should contain the findings presented in the form of tables, figures and photographs.

Acknowledgments If necessary, a brief acknowledgements section may be included.

References should be in alphabetic order. The References in the text should be cited by name and year. The references should be cited at the end of the manuscript in the order of their appearance in the text. For citation of references with more than three authors, only the first author’s name followed by et al. should be used. In case of more than one reference of the same author in the same year, add suffix a, b, c. to the year. Examples: Thomas 1969, Moss 1973a, 1973b, Madony et al. 1990, Abbasi and Soni 1991.

All the tables and figures should be in the text at suitable place. Only MS word table format should be used for preparing tables. Tables should show lines separating rows but not those separating columns. Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a brief title in capital letters normal face. Tables should not be very large that they run more than one A4 sized page. Table format should be as follow:

Table I Shows the content of MDA in Control and experimental rats
Parameters Group I Group II Group III Group VI

Abbreviations, Units Etc.
The journal strictly follows the rules defined in the IUPAC Manual of symbols and terminology for physicochemical quantities and units.

Short Communication
The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 10 pages in length in total. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion- all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.

Review Article
Should be about 15-30 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers.

Copyright and Permission
Submission is a representation that the manuscript has not been published previously and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors would be required to sign a form (to be supplied by the Editor) transferring copyright before the manuscript can be published.

Ethical matter
Authors publishing results from in vivo experiments involving animals or humans should state whether due permission for conduction of these experiments was obtained, from the relevant ethics committees, in the Materials and Methods section. In addition, authors wishing to publish research work involving human studies should also send a notary verified letter of approval from the Ethics Committee or the Institutional Review Board.

Authors are requested to send their research articles strictly according to the given format mentioned in the guidelines to the authors
