Author Guidelines

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

Preface: A4 size, one column, double spaced lines, Times New Roman (Font 12), roughly equal to 4500-5000 words. These 20 pages should also cover the graphs and tables presented.

Title and Name of authors

The Title should be a brief phrase (capitalize first letter of each word in the title). The Title Page should include the authors' full names, affiliations and locations, the name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and E-mail information.

Abstract: The abstract should be clear, descriptive

Keywords: A list of three to five keywords from the manuscript must be supplied. Keywords should include the topic investigated and special techniques used. Keywords should be informative without reference to the main text


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

This section should be brief but provide sufficient detail of the material used and equipment and the procedure followed to allow the work to be repeated by others. The sources of the laboratory procedures (Chemicals, reagents, cultures, plants and   instruments) should be cited and any changes that were made must be noted. Information on the equipment model, manufacturers name and address including the city, province/state and country should be provided. The procedures should be written in the past tense

Results and Discussion

Results 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. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined

Acknowledgements: In this section, the authors may wish to thank some research institutions, funding agencies, companies, or governmental bodies, grants or people who have contributed or financially supported the research from which the manuscript is derived.

Conflict of Interest

Financial contributions to the work being reported should be clearly acknowledged, as should any potential conflict of interest. 

Conclusion: The main conclusions of the experimental work should be presented. The contribution of the work to the scientific community and its economic implications should be emphasized.


Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets e.g., [1], [4-8]. All references should be cited within the text and listed in the same numerical order in the reference section otherwise; these references will be automatically removed.

  All references must be complete and accurate.

  Avoid using superscript in the in-text citations and reference section

  Journal abbreviations should follow the Index Medicus/MEDLINE.


There is no restriction on the number of tables and figures

  Data Tables should be submitted in Microsoft Word table format.

  Tables should be embedded in the text exactly according to their appropriate placement in the submitted manuscript

  Each table should have a brief and self-explanatory title

  Tables should be numbered according to their sequence in the text

  First mention of tables in text must be in sequential order; indicate first mention of each table in margin of manuscript.




Figures are of two kinds: line drawings and photographs. Line drawings must be drawn using intense black on white: photographs must be of good contrast and in sharp focus throughout. In addition to the usual line-drawn graphs, treat complicated formulas, flow diagrams, metabolic schemes and large or complex tables as figures. First mention of figures in text must be in sequentional order; indicate first mention of each figure in margin of text. Use [Fig-1] to indicate the number of formulas.

Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG (preferred format for photos or images) or Power Point before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file.


Headings and Subheadings

Authors should examine samples of the publication for which the manuscript is being prepared. For full-length journal papers, the main text headings, such as materials and methods, are typed in capitals in the center of the line. Secondary center headings and side headings are typed in capital and lower case letters. Run-in headings are typed in the normal paragraph position and understand for printing in italics. Use of subheadings can help divide papers for guiding readers, but excessive use is distracting. Keep subheadings short.




Sub heading: Plant Material

Units of Measurement

The SI system is adopted as standard. As for abbreviations if any non-standards are to be used they should be defined in the text

Species names should be italicized.

List of Abbreviations 

Abbreviations use should be restricted to a minimum. All non-standard abbreviations should be listed in alphabetical order, along with their expanded form, defining them upon the first use in the text.


Manuscript length

Full length Research article: The total number of words for a published in full length research article is from 3000 to 10000 words

Review Articles: The total number of words for a published comprehensive review article is from 5000 to 30000 words, and for mini-review articles from 2000 to 8000 words.

Short Communications/Letter Articles: The total number of words for a published letter/short communication article is from 1000 to 5000 words

All inconsistencies in the text and in the reference section and any typographical errors must be carefully checked and corrected before the submission of the manuscript. The article contains no such material or information that may be unlawful, defamatory, fabricated, plagiarized, or which would, if published, in any way whatsoever, violate the terms and conditions as laid down in the agreement. The authors acknowledge that the publishers have the legal right to take appropriate action against the authors for any such violation of the terms and conditions as laid down in the agreement

Peer -review process and Promptness of Publication 

All manuscripts submitted for publication will be immediately subjected to peer-reviewing, usually in consultation with the members of the Editorial Advisory Board/review board and a number of external referees. Authors may, however, provide in their Covering Letter the contact details (including e-mail addresses) of four potential peer reviewers for their paper. Any peer reviewers suggested should not have recently published with any of the authors of the submitted manuscript and should not be members of the same research institution.

All peer-reviewing will be conducted via the Internet to facilitate rapid reviewing of the submitted manuscripts. Every possible effort will be made to assess the manuscripts quickly with the decision being conveyed to the authors in due course.

Galley proofs

Proofs and Reprints: Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file and returned within 72 hours. If unable to send corrections within 72 hours due to some reason, the author(s) must at least send an acknowledgement on receiving the galley proofs or the article will be published exactly as received and the publishers will not be responsible for any error occurring in the manuscript in this regard. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no major changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Authors will have free electronic access to the full text (in both HTML and PDF) of the article. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.
