All other footnotes (except for table footnotes) should be avoided.

Original material  Submission of an article in the Journal implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

Detailed instructions on manuscript preparation and artwork instructions can be found below.

Manuscript Preparation

General- Editors reserve the right to adjust style to certain standards of uniformity. Original manuscripts shall be discarded two month after publication unless the Publisher is asked to return original material after use. An electronic copy of the manuscript on disk should accompany the final accepted version. Please use MS Word for the text of your manuscript.
Structure- Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Main Text, Acknowledgements (if any), Appendix (if any), References, Figure Captions, Tables and Figures. 

Text Layout - Use 1.5 spacing and wide (3 cm) margins on white paper and full justification.
Ensure that each new paragraph is clearly indicated. Present tables and figure legends on separate pages at the end of the manuscript. Number all pages consecutively and all line numbers starting afresh on each page; use 12 pt font size Times New Roman and standard fonts.

Abstract - Each paper should be provided with an Abstract of about 100-200 words, reporting concisely on the purpose of the review paper. 

Keywords- Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of seven keywords (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.

Symbols - Abbreviations for units should follow the suggestions of the British Standards publication BS 1991. The full stop should not be included in abbreviations, e.g. m (not m.), ppm (not p.p.m.), '%' and '/' should be used in preference to 'per cent' and 'per'.

Units- Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If, in certain instances, it is necessary to quote other units, these should be added in parentheses. Temperatures should be given in degrees Celsius. The unit 'billion' is ambiguous and must not be used. It is preferred that units be of the format like mg/L and not mgL-1.

Mathematical notations and equations - Authors should make clear any symbols (e.g. Greek characters, vectors, etc.) which may be confused with ordinary letters or characters. Duplicated use of symbols should be avoided where this may be misleading. Symbols should be defined as they arise in the text and separate Nomenclature should also be supplied.  All equations should be word processed using the Microsoft Equation 3.0 wizard from the ‘Insert-Object’ option.

References -  Referencesmust be typed as Superscripted in text and in the following order: Initials and surname followed by the name of journal, Vol. No., page no. and year of publication (and for the book: name of book, Publisher, page No. and year), e.g.-         
H.Matsumoto, S.Hara, N.Nagata and K. Ikeda, Heterocyclic41, 47 (1995).
M.Bodanszky and A.Bodanszky, Yhe Practice of Peptide Synthesis, Springer-Verlag, New York, p.78,91(1984).
