Manuscript should be typed in single spaced on one side of A4 size paper with Times New Roman (12 font size) are wide margin on both sides. All pages should be numbered. Manuscript may be submitted through online submission or through E-mail Id ( or Papers should generally be arranged in the following sequence- Title, Author name and address with mail Id, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Material and methods, Result and discussion, Acknowledgements, References, Tables, Figure legends and Figures.

Title: Should be brief, specific and amenable to indexing.

Abstract: should be clear, concise, place and duration of work and summaries only the significant findings of the paper (about 250 words).

Keywords: Should be maximum 4-6 words.

Introduction: Should be brief and limited with the aims of the study. Exhaustive reviewing of literature should be avoided. The introduction should mention the objectives of the study.
Materials and Methods: Should be sufficiently detailed to enable the experiments to be reproduced. The techniques and methodology adopted should be supported with standard references. The statistical methods used should be clearly stated. Date/period of the study should be mentioned.

Results and Discussion: Should preferably be combined. The results should be supported by brief but adequate tables/illustrations. Only necessary tables and figures should be given. Data emerging out from the study should be included, arranged in a unified and coherent sequence and statistically analyzed with significance. The same data should not be presented both in Tabular and Graphic forms. Lengthy, confusing and irrelevant discussion should be scrupulously avoided. It should deal with interpretations and the conclusions drawn, based on results and supported by relevant latest references. Repetitions should be curtailed.

Conclusions: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

Acknowledgements: should be brief and specific. It should also include the sponsor or the funding agency of the project.

References: all publications cited in the text should be presented in the references. For text citations, use surname of the author(s) and the year of the publication. In case of more than two authors, surname of the first author followed by et al. and the year of the publication should be used.
