Web pages and Web links

We strongly discourage any mentioning or citing web links/URLs in your paper, since web addresses are changed frequently by their owners. This often results in broken links (dead links) in your paper in the future. It is annoying if readers cannot find the web pages when clicking on the links.

Please use the following link to check the complete information for Samples of Formatted References for Authors of Journal Articles


Chemical Terminology

The chemical nomenclature used must be in accordance with that used in the Chemical Abstracts.

Biological Nomenclature

(Examples: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Streptococcus mutans).

Enzyme Nomenclature

The trivial names recommended by the IUPAC-IUB Commission should be used. When the enzyme is the main subject of a paper, its code number and systematic name should be stated in its first citation in the paper.

Ethical Matters

For Animal and Clinical Experiments

There must be a clear statement while submitting that, investigations using experimental animals were conducted in accordance with the internationally accepted principles for laboratory animal use and care as found in for example the European Community guidelines (EEC Directive of 1986; 86/609/EEC) or the US guidelines (NIH publication #85-23, revised in 1985). Investigations with human subjects must state that the research followed guidelines of the Declaration of Helsinki and Tokyo for humans, and was approved by the institutional human experimentation committee or equivalent, and that informed consent was obtained. For reports of randomized, controlled trials, authors should refer to the CONSORT statement. This guideline provides a set of recommendations comprising a list of items to report and a patient flow diagram.

Evidence for approval by a local Ethics Committee (for both human as well as animal studies) must be supplied by the authors on demand. Animal experimental procedures should be as humane as possible and the details of anesthetics and analgesics used should be clearly stated. The ethical standards of experiments must be in accordance with the guidelines provided by the CPCSEA (animal) and ICMR (human). The journal will not consider any paper which is ethically unacceptable. A statement on ethics committee permission and ethical practices must be included in all research articles under the ‘Materials and Methods’ section.

Abbreviations and Units

Generally, units must be abbreviated according to the International System of Units (SI units).

Below you find the examples of abbreviations of the most commonly used SI units:

Units forLength (m, cm, m, mm, nm, Å)

Units forMass (kg, g, mg, mg, ng, pg, mol, mmol)

Units forVolume (l, ml, ml), time (s, min, h, d)

Units forTemperature (°C, K)

Units forRadiation (Bq, Ci, dpm, Gy, rad) and

Units forConcentration (M, mM, mol/l, mmol/l, mg/ml, mg/ml, %, % (v/v), % (w/v), ppm, ppb.
