Completed manuscript as per the journal format along with signed declaration form may be submitted via e-mail to [email protected] and [email protected] (Please send to both e-mail addresses)

Title page

The first page should include (1) title of the paper (All capital, Font size 14, Bold), (2) names of each author (Font size 12, Bold), (3) names of department and institutions with which each author is affiliated (Font size 12, Regular), and (4) name, address, e-mail and phone number of corresponding author.

Running title, not exceeding 50 character space.


Each article should be summarized in an abstract not exceeding 250 words, italicised. The recommended format of a structured abstract with the following headings for an original article: Background, Objective, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion and conclusion. For a review article, it should be structured as follows: Background, Objective, Methods (including data sources, study selection and data extraction), Discussion and Conclusion. 3-5 keywords are required that are not in the title. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams and reference in the abstract.

Main text
The main text should have appropriate headings and subheadings. The text for Research articles should be set out as (1) Introduction, (2) Materials and Methods, (3) Results and Discussion and (4) Conclusion. Footnote to the text should not be used.

Introduction: This section should state the relevance and background to the study, and its rationale and purpose.

Methods: The section should include the detail information on apparatus, experimental procedures and statistical methods. Studies involving humans, both volunteers and patients, or animals require approval by an Institutional Ethical Committee prior to actually performing the research and publishing the data. 

Results: Present your results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations.

Discussion: This should include the research findings and their limitations, with reference to all other relevant studies.


This must summarize the main paper with major findings and possibilities for future research.
The body of a review article should be a comprehensive, evidence-based review of the literature, accompanied by critical analysis and leading to reasonable conclusions. Wherever appropriate details of the literature search methodology should be provided.

The Acknowledgments section details special thanks, personal assistance, dedications and financial support at the end of the manuscript before the references section.
