These manuscripts will be subjected to review at the discretion of the Editorial Office and the decisions regarding acceptability will be made on the basis of the quality and suitability of the work for the journal.

  Ethical Guildlines
  • Authors should have no conflict of interest with their submitted work
  • Studies involving animals or humans must include details of permission for conducting of these experiments or a notary verified letter of approval from the Ethics Committee or the Institutional Review Board in the Materials and Methods section.  The study in humans should omit the identifying details of patients or study participants unless is essential that must provide the written informed consent from the studied volunteers for publication.

  Full Research Papers
As a general rule should not exceed 4000 words.

  Invited Articles
Invitation articles from the editors.

  Reviews
Discussion articles of current and important topics with maximum of 6000 words.

  Short Communications
Maximum of 2000 words with not more than four figures and/or tables that describe particularly pertinent findings may be submitted as a rapid communication. This section is not for short studies per se but for exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper.

The letter size should be 9 except the manuscript Title is suggested to be 16. All headlines including Title should be in bold type. The title page includes full names of authors, academic or professional affiliations with cities and countries, and the complete postal address for the corresponding author (include e-mail address).

The paper should contain the Abstract section of not more than 150 words, followed by 3-5 Key words. The citation of references in the text including Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion is by the author’s last name and year (example: Leu et al, 2008). Avoid online citation.
