      Abbreviations of Journal titles should follow those used in Index Medicus
    8. Tables
      All tables must be cited in the text. They should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Tables should be paginated and page numbers should follow consecutively from the last page of the References section. If a Table continues over a page, note at the bottom of the page, e.g., “Table 2 continued on page x”; at the top of page x, note “Table 2 continued from page 1.” Since tabular material is expensive to reproduce, it should be simple and uncomplicated, with as few vertical and horizontal rules as possible. Type double spaced. Indicate in the margin where the tables are to appear in the text. Table titles should be complete but brief. Information other than that defining the data should be presented in footnotes, not in the table heading. Please consult a current issue of our journal for table heading format.
    9. Figures/Illustrations
      All figures must be cited in the text. Figure legends are to be numbered consecutively as follows:
      Fig. 1. . . , Fig. 2... , and should follow the sequence of reference in the text. Type double spaced. Abbreviations for all figures should be listed alphabetically and placed before the first figure mentioning them: Whenever possible, figures should be integrated into the text. Reference to relevant text pages can often reduce the length of legends and avoid redundancy.
      Illustrations: Reproduction of illustrations is costly. Authors should limit the number of figures to that which adequately presents the findings. To achieve greatest fidelity and rendition of detail, it is preferable that the printer work directly from original drawings or high-quality photographic prints (but not photocopies made on an office duplicating machine). All illustrations must be submitted in complete and finished form with adequate labeling.
      To achieve optimum halftone quality, photographic prints submitted for reproduction must be of adequate contrast and if multiple prints are included in a single figure, they should be of uniform tone.
      Black-and-White Prints: Prints should be on white, nonmatte paper.
      Colour Illustrations: These can be made either from good-quality transparencies or from colour prints. Do not use silk finish or matte surface papers for colour prints. Authors are encouraged to submit colour illustrations that highlight the text and convey essential scientific information. For best reproduction, bright, clear colours should be used. Dark colours against a dark background do not reproduce well; please place your colour images against a white background wherever possible.
      For all the Black and White Photographs and Colour Figures authors are requested to pay the cost of reproducing them in print.
      Reduction to Printed Size: The author should indicate clearly on each illustration the reduction desired, bearing the following in mind:
      · Illustrations cannot be reduced to less than 20% of their submitted size.
      · Submitted line drawings cannot exceed 5 x 7½" (12x18 cm)/3½ x 6½" (8 x 16 cm).
      · Lettering and labels must be readable after reduction. When reduced the maximum height of a capital letter should not be less than 2.5 mm for photomicrograph and 1 mm for a graph or chart.
      · When printed, an individual figure or group of figures should not exceed the dimensions of 5” (12 cm) wide by 7½” (18cm) long, or 2.5” (6 cm) wide by 7½” (18 cm) long in the case of a single-column placement. Whereas for the book size (5½ x 9" - 14½ x 22 cm), it is 3½" (8 cm) wide by 6½" (16 cm) long for page size.
      As far as possible, the publisher will adhere to the author’s suggested reduction. However, discretionary adjustments may have to be made, and the scale of illustrated objects should be indicated in the figure, not in the caption.
      Line Drawings: Figures should be drawn with black ink on medium-weight white paper or lightweight artboard.
      · The reverse side of each illustration should indicate: Author’s Name; Number, Top Side of Illustration; Reduction Requested: “Review Copy” on those copies intended only for reviewers.
      · Do not fasten illustrations with paper clips, staples, etc., since they will mark the surface of the Illustrations.
      · Illustrations should be shipped flat and protected by heavy cardboard.
      Lettering and Labels: Illustrations should be lettered and numbered with printed paste-on or transfer labels.
      ·Typewriter and Dot-matrix fonts are in general not acceptable as labels.
      · Labels should be large enough to allow for suitable reduction and sturdy enough to withstand mailing and handling in the production process.
      · For protection, it is recommended that labeling be sprayed with clear adhesive to prevent it from becoming scratched or being torn off.
      · Labeling should be done directly on the drawing or photographic print, never on an overlay.
      · All labeling should be placed at least 1/8” (3 mm) from the edges of the illustrations.
      Numbering: Figures, including charts and graphs, should be numbered consecutively.
    10. Appendix (if any)
      The Appendix should be avoided if possible
    11. Metric System
      The metric system should be used for all measurements, weight, etc. Temperatures should always be expressed in degrees Celsius (centigrade). Metric abbreviations, as listed below, should be expressed in lower-case without periods.
      Length: km (kilometer); m (meter); cm (centimeter); mm (millimeter); μm (micrometer) (micron); nm (nanometer); pm (picometer); Å (Ångstrom unit) (10Å=1nm).
      Area: km2 (square kilometer); m2 (square meter), mm2 (square centimeter); nm2 (square millimeter); μm2 (square micrometer); nm2 (square nanometer); km3 (cubic kilometer); m3 (cubic meter); cm3 (cubic centimeter); mm3 (cubic millimeter); μm3 (cubic micrometer); nm3 (cubic nanometer).
      Volume: kl (kiloliter); liter (always spell out); ml (milliliter); μl (microliter); nl (nanoliter); pl (picoliter).
      Weight: kg (kilogram); gm (gram); mg (milligram); μg (microgram); ng (nanogram); pg (picogram).
    12. Symbols
      When proceeded by a digit, the following symbols are to used: % percent; º for degree.
      SIZE:
      An article should not generally exceed twelve printed pages (18 double spaced typed pages of MS Word). The authors would be charged for additional pages, even if a longer article is accepted for publication. Reporting of frequency data may be accepted in the form of small report. Such reports should generally not exceed four pages, including tables/figures.
      SCREENING OF THE PAPER:
      Each paper is screened (not reviewed) by the Member of the Editorial Board to check its suitability for favour of publication in the Peer-reviewed Scientific and Research international journal. If it is observed that it can be considered for publication than the Corresponding Author is asked to complete the initial formalities i. e., List of Referees to review the paper and payment of processing fee of the paper.
