Format of articles
In most of the cases, we do not impose strict limits on word count or page number. Yet, we strongly recommend that you write concisely and stick to the following instructions:
Title page should contain title, running title, author affiliations, and contact information by differentiating the corresponding author with an asterisk. Also should include word count, number of tables and figures, sources of support, source of funding, any disclaimers, and conflict of interest declarations.
The abstract is mandatory for original research, review article, short reviews, and case reports. It should contain the background of the study, should state the study's purpose, basic procedures, main findings, and principal conclusions. It is advised to highlight the novel and significant aspects of the study.
Three to six key words are mandatory that should explain the research.
All the abbreviations that are used in the article should be listed.
The introduction should provide the background and purpose of the study. It should state the research objectives, hypothesis of the study or the observation. The content in the introduction should be cited properly using more recent references. Avoid providing unrelated information.
Materials and Methods
This section should contain adequate and detailed information of all the procedures and steps. It can be divided into subsections if several methods are described. Standard protocols should be credited with appropriate references.
A clear presentation of experimental results obtained, highlighting any trends or points of interest. The results presented in tables and figures should be placed in close proximity to the text describing them in order to improve the accessibility of the data. The results should not be repeated in both tables and figures.
The discussion should relate to the significance of the observations. Briefly summarizing the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and for clinical practice.
It should be crisp and clear with a logical conclusion, interpretation and data generation from the experimental study.
References (limited to 60 references, though not strictly enforced)
References should follow the standards summarized in the NLM's International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations. All references cited in the text must be included in the reference list and vice versa. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Smith A, et al. ”; “as discussed elsewhere [9, 10]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed.
