Manuscript Structure

 

1. ORDER OF THE CONTENT
The order of the content must be as per following sequence;


1. Title Page with Authors details (Including emails and affiliations)

2. Abstract & Keywords

3. Introduction

4. Methods, if applicable / any

5. Results, if applicable / any

6. Conclusions

7.Acknowledgements, if applicable / any

8. References

9. Appendices (if applicable / any)

 

2. TITLE

The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the
authors' full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and e-mail information. 


3. ABSTRACT

The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The abstract should be 100 to 200 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.

 

4. Keywords 

Provide 4 to 7 keywords which can be used for indexing purposes. Keywords should not repeat the words of the manuscript title or contain abbreviations and shall be written in alphabetical order as separated by semicolon. Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter through the text.

5. Introduction 

The Introduction should state the purpose of the investigation and identify clearly the gap of knowledge that will be filled in the Literature review study. Date and location of the research carried out throughout the study must be mentioned at the end of this section. 

 

6. Methods

This  section should provide enough information to permit repetition of the experimental work. It should include clear descriptions and explanations of sampling procedures, experimental design, and essential sample characteristics and descriptive statistics, hypothesis tested, exact references to literature describing the tests used in the manuscript, number of data involved in statistical tests, etc.

 

7. Results

The Results section should describe the outcome of the study. Data should be presented as concisely as possible - if appropriate in the form of tables or figures, although very large tables should be avoided. The discussion should be an interpretation of the results and their significance with reference to work by other authors. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the author(s)'s experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.

 

8 FIGURES (Line Art Drawings) AND TABLES

 

FIGURES

Figures and tables may appear printed directly in the text and   should be black and white or grayscale. Figure should appear soon after the citation in the text or if it is too large at the end of the manuscript.

Legends/Captions for figures

Text type should be 9 point Times Roman italic (eg; Figure 1. Caption). A caption should be provided for each figure. The legend should be typed into the manuscript, directly beneath the figure. Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text. Legends are to be listed in numerical order, labeled as “Figure 1”, “Figure 2”, etc.

 

TABLES

Indent tables slightly from the left  margin, if it is necessary to use the full width of the page. Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph forms or repeated in the text.

 

Titles/Captions for tables

The table caption should be typed to the width of the table itself and typed above the table. Text type of table caption should be 9 point Times Roman italic (e.g., Table 1.Caption). Number the titles of the tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text. Be sure that each table caption is headed as “Table 1”, “Table 2”, etc. within each chapter.Both figures and tables must be cited in the text.

 

9. DISCUSSIONS

The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.

 

10. CONCLUSIONS

This section should highlight the major, firm discoveries, and state what the added value of the main finding is, without literature references.

 

11. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the reference list. The names of funding organizations should be written in full. Financial support affiliation of the study, if exists, must be mentioned in this section. Thereby, the Grant number of financial support must be included.

 

12. REFERENCES

References text type should be 10 point (Times Roman).  In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by ’et al‘. In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like ’a‘ and ’b‘ after the date to distinguish the works.

Publication in 3rd party / collaborative journals : 

  • It is the responsibility of the authors of the manuscript who are submitting the paper, to validate and verify the authenticity and indexing of the 3rd party/collaborative journals before submission.

 

  •  Indexing totally depends on content, indexing partner guidelines and their indexing procedures. This is the reason sometimes indexing happens immediately and sometimes it takes time. The whole process for including any article (s) in the Scopus database is done by Scopus team only. Journal or Publication House doesn't have any involvement in the decision whether to accept or reject a paper for the Scopus database and cannot influence the processing time of paper. Post-publication and indexing process, if for any reasons or extraneous circumstances or due to any conflicts between journal publisher and indexing agency or due to any non-adherence of ethical standards, if the indexing is removed from the server by the indexing agent (Scopus, Thomson Reuters,  etc., ) we cannot be held responsible/accountable for the same.

 

Note 1: As a publisher, we are responsible for the process of publication ONLY.

Note 2: All SCOPUS/WOS journals do not provide certificates.

Publication company does not have any control over it and the company is not liable for the delays, if any. If Publication gets cancelled due to any extraneous factors, the payment will get refunded to the concerned author.

Note 5: Once the paper gets published, it cannot be retracted from the respective journal and at any cost the amount cannot be refunded.
