Title: Title must be informative and specific. It should be easily understandable by the reader and should reflect the motive of the research paper.
Author Name, Affiliation, and Corresponding author email ID: Author last name and First name only. Please don’t include salutations like Dr/ Mr/ Prof etc.
Abstract: Please provide an abstract of 250 to 300 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references. The abstract should follow the style of structured abstracts, with headings: 1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; 2) Materials and Methods: Describe briefly the main methods or treatments applied. Include any relevant preregistration numbers, and species and strains of any animals used. 3) Findings: Summarize the article's main findings; and 4) Conclusion: Indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article: it must not contain results that are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions.
Keywords: Six most important terms that describe your research domain and specific problem area investigated.
Introduction: The introduction should briefly place the study in a broad context and highlight why it is important. It should define the purpose of the work and its significance, including specific hypotheses being tested. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully and key publications cited. Please highlight controversial and diverging hypotheses when necessary. Finally, briefly mention the main aim of the work. Keep the introduction comprehensible to scientists working outside the topic of the paper.
Materials and Methods: This section should describe how you are supposed to rectify the problem, and what approach or methods you are supposed to use in your paper. New methods and protocols should be described in detail while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited. Give the name and version of any software used and make clear whether the computer code used is available. Include any pre-registration codes.
Results: Provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.
Discussion: Authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from the perspective of previous studies and of the working hypotheses. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest context possible and the limitations of the work highlighted. Future research directions may also be mentioned. This section may be combined with Results.
Conclusion: This section is mandatory, with one or two paragraphs to end the main text.
Acknowledgment: Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section on the Manuscript. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.
Conflicts of Interest: Authors must identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as influencing the representation or interpretation of reported research results. If there is no conflict of interest, please state "The authors declare no conflict of interest."
Reference citations in the text should be identified by APA 6th edition. Some examples:
- This effect has been widely studied (Rahmani et al., 2022).
- Our study suggests that SeZnP supplementation serves as possible and best nutritive as ZnP or SeP for Wistar rats raised under high ambient temperature (Ali, 2020).
- The knowledge of the mechanisms through which the metabolites produced by the gut microbiota(postbiotics) prevent diseases (Ahmad & Rahim, 2021).
The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication.
If available, please always include DOIs as full DOI links in your reference list (e.g. “https://doi.org/10.1016/j.lfs.2020.117464”).
