  3. Abstracts of manuscripts of other categories should be unstructured. Avoid symbols and abbreviations in the abstract. 
  4. Manuscript text should be submitted using Microsoft Word (in .doc or.docx only).
  5. Review articles can be submitted by any author. These are systematic critical assessments of literature and data sources. Each review article should include an unstructured abstract, 3 to 5 MeSH keywords, Introduction, relevant section headings, conclusion and up to 50 references. 
  6. The total number of words including references, table and figure captions should be not more than 7500 words and use English (UK).


State briefly the purpose, rationale for the study or observation. Avoid a review of the subject by confining to only relevant information and references. Do not include data or conclusions from the work being cited. Cite all References in using APA 6th style.  Kindly refer to the example of references in this template.


A precise description of the selection of your observational or experimental subjects (patients or laboratory animals, including controls) must be presented. State the methods, apparatus (including manufacturer’s name and address in parenthesis), and procedures in sufficient detail to allow others to reproduce the method. In the case(s) of established methods or techniques, give references.

References for methods that have been published but are not well-known must also be provided. For new or substantially adapted methods, describe and give reasons for using them and critically evaluate their limitations. All chemicals and drugs used must be identified correctly, including their generic names, the name of the manufacturer, city and country in parenthesis. The dosage should be mentioned accurately including the route of administration. The International System of Units (SI) should be used and Footnotes avoided.


Tables and Illustrations (Figures) are placed within the text at the appropriate points NOT at the end. Captions along with legends must accompany the appropriate Tables and Illustrations (Figures). Tables and Illustrations (Figures) to be submitted in either .doc, .docx, tiff or jpeg files. Figures need to be in a clear and in good quality. Label Illustrations (Figures and Tablesmentioned in the text in Arabic numerals (e.g. 1, 2, 3).

Numbers and symbols should be clear and of sufficient size that when reduced for publication each item will still be legible. Poor quality illustrations will not be accepted. 


Use only standard abbreviations. Avoid the use of abbreviations and symbols in the title and abstract. Use the full term first and subsequently the abbreviation. Use the full term if it is a standard unit of measurement. In general, symbols and abbreviations should be those used by British Chemical and Physiological Abstracts. Weights, volumes, etc. should be in metric units.


Provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn. The Results section should include all primary and secondary outcome measures analysed. The section may be divided into subsections, each with a concise subheading. Tables and figures central to the study should be included in the main paper. The Results section should be written in the past tense.


Elaborate on the new and important findings of the study. Do not repeat in detail data or other information already given in the Introduction or the Results sections. Compare and discuss with previous works (citing references). Discuss the implications of the findings and their limitations. Avoid claiming priority and alluding to work that has not been completed.

State new hypotheses when warranted. Discuss your finding about future research. Recommendations, when appropriate, must be given at the end of this section followed by a concluding paragraph.


Link the conclusions with the goals of the study.


Acknowledgements 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.
