Manuscript Structure

Follow this structure when drafting your manuscripts:

  1. Title
  2. Authors
  3. Affiliations
  4. Abstract
  5. Keywords
  6. Main Text
  7. Acknowledgements (if any)
  8. References
  9. Figure Captions
  10. 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'). 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
    References must 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),
    H.Matsumoto, S.Hara, N.Nagata and K. Ikeda, Heterocyclic, 41, 47 (1995).
    M.Bodanszky and A.Bodanszky, Yhe Practice of Peptide Synthesis, Springer-Verlag, New York, p.78,91(1984).
