Guidelines for Authors

The manuscript should be typed in double spacing preferably in MS word leaving wide margins.

The manuscripts should be arranged as follows: The first page should contain (in following order) Title, Author's names and Address (one author should be identified as corresponding author with email id), Abstract, Keywords & Phrases, Classification number. Next page should start with usual headings of Introduction, Material and methods/Theoretical formulation, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgment (if any) and References. In the text the authors should delete their names and authors identification from the properties of the file.

To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to this journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other.


Figures (refer with: figure 1, figure 2, ... ) also should be presented as part of the text, leaving enough space so that the caption will not be confused with the text. The caption should be self-contained and placed below the figure. For best quality the pictures should have a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch).


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.


References should be cited in the text just by square brackets [1]. Two or more references at a time may be put in one set of brackets [3,4]. The references are to be numbered in the order in which they are cited in the text and are to be listed at the end of the manuscript under a heading References, see example below.
