Instruction for Authors

Three types of contributions are considered for publication:

  1. Review Articles

Review Articles are original reports whose conclusions represent a substantial advance in understanding of an important problem and have immediate, far-reaching implications. They do not normally have any page limit.

Review Articles have an abstract, separate from the main text, of up to 150 words, which does not have references, and does not contain numbers, abbreviations, acronyms or measurements unless essential. It is aimed at readers outside the discipline. This summary contains a paragraph (2-3 sentences) of basic-level introduction to the field; a brief account of the background and rationale of the work; a statement of the main conclusions (introduced by the phrase 'Here we show' or its equivalent); and finally, 2-3 sentences putting the main findings into general context so it is clear how the results described in the paper have moved the field forwards.

References must be typed in the following order:

Initials and surname followed by name of journal, vol. No., page no. and year of publication (or name of book, publisher, page no. and year),

e.g., T.N. Shrivastava, S.K. Tandon and N. Bhakru, J. Inorg. Nucl. Chem., 40, 1180 (1978).

N.H. Ray, Inorganic Polymers, Academic Press, London, p. 88 (1972).

  1. Articles
Articles are original reports whose conclusions represent a substantial advance in understanding of an important problem and have immediate, far-reaching implications. They do not normally exceed 5 pages of journal and have no more than 40 references. (contains not more than 4000 words.)

Manuscripts should be uploaded through the website. The text should be divided into the following sections: Abstract, Introduction, Experimental, Results and Discussion,  Acknowledgements (if any) and References. The number of tables, diagrams and photographs should not be more than what is absolutely necessary.

References must be typed in the following order:

Initials and surname followed by name of journal, vol. No., page no. and year of publication (or name of book, publisher, page no. and year),

e.g., T.N. Shrivastava, S.K. Tandon and N. Bhakru, J. Inorg. Nucl. Chem., 40, 1180 (1978). N.H. Ray, Inorganic Polymers, Academic Press, London, p. 88 (1972).

  1. Notes
Notes are short reports of original research focused on an outstanding finding whose importance means that it will be of interest to scientists in other fields.

They do not normally exceed 2 pages, and have no more than 30 references. They begin with a paragraph, ideally of about 200 words, but certainly no more than 300 words, aimed at readers in other disciplines. This paragraph starts with a 2-3 sentence basic introduction to the field; followed by a one-sentence statement of the main conclusions starting 'Here we show' or equivalent phrase; and finally, 2-3 sentences putting the main findings into general context so it is clear how the results described in the paper have moved the field forwards.

The rest of the text is typically about 1,500 words long. Any discussion at the end of the text should be as succinct as possible, not repeating previous summary/introduction material, to briefly convey the general relevance of the work.

Word counts refer to the text of the paper. References, title, author list and acknowledgements do not have to be included in total word counts.

References must be typed in the following order:

Initials and surname followed by name of journal, vol. No., page no. and year of publication (or name of book, publisher, page no. and year),

e.g., T.N. Shrivastava, S.K. Tandon and N. Bhakru, J. Inorg. Nucl. Chem., 40, 1180 (1978). N.H. Ray, Inorganic Polymers, Academic Press, London, p. 88 (1972).

Manuscript Processing Fees

Authors should understand that there are many occurring publishing expenses per journal page associated with manuscript processing, editorial, production, typesetting, printing, paper, binding, shipping, web-hosting, and archiving. However authors pay no publication fees as well as the costs of any color figure/illustration in a print edition to Asian Publication Corporation whatsoever, therefore, publisher is doing all services to authors free of costs and/or at fractional costs, hence, publisher is not obligated to provide any hard/softcopies of journal issue and/or research article to anyone whatsoever. Authors may download pdf file of their published papers from the website after paying. If authors require a hardcopy of the journal issue having their research articles then authors may also purchase hardcopies of the journal issue or subscribe to the journal by contacting the publisher. No free hard/softcopies of journal issue and/or research article are provided. On the other hand, if authors want to support the journal by paying full manuscript processing fees plus all costs of color figures/illustrations/photos in a print edition through their research grants or affiliated institutions, then publisher will provide hardcopy of journal issue or pdf file of his/her research article after receiving a full payment. Asian Publication Corporation highly appreciate for author's kind understanding and support.
