International Journal of Advanced Research in Biological Sciences (ISSN:2348-8069-online) publishes research articles, Reviews and short communications.
publishes research articles, Reviews and short communications. It is important that authors prepare their manuscripts according to established specifications. The authors are strongly encouraged to read instructions carefully before preparing a research manuscript for submission and publication in our journal. The manuscripts should be checked carefully for grammatical errors. All Research articles are subjected to peer review.
Three types of manuscripts may be submitted:
It should be describe a new and carefully confirmed findings, and experimental
procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work.
A Short Communication is suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations.
Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages in length.
Reviews articles should be concise and no longer than 4-6 printed pages.
All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified
outside reviewers. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives
to return reviewers' comments to authors within 1 weeks. The editorial board will re-review
manuscripts that are accepted pending revision.
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 E-mail information.
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.
Following the abstract, about 3 to 6 key words that will provide indexing references.
It should be provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject. It should be
understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
Materials and Methods.
It should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only
truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and
important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Subheadings should be used.
should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense.
Previously published findings should be written in the present tense.
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.
of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.
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.
legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using
Microsoft Word manuscript file. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word.
In the text, a reference identified by means of an author's name should be followed by the date
of the reference in parentheses. more than two authors, only the first author's name should be
mentioned, followed by 'et al.,
Voiry (1981), (Jones et al., 1988), (Aleem , 1980), (Kohlmeyer and Vittal, 1986), (Hyde, 1991; Swart 1987a,b; Ulken, 1993, 1995)..
References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order.

Short Communications are (1) Abstracts are limited to 100 words; (2) instead of a separate Materials and Methods
section,experimental procedures may be incorporated into Figure Legends and Table footnotes; (3) Results and
Discussion should be combined into a single section.
Review articles Should be about 18 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature
and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic.
Conflict of Interest statement
It must be declared by authors.
Proofs and Reprints
Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of
an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis) that it is not under consideration for publication
elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer
of the copyright to the publisher.
