General: In the event the required information is not provided, the manuscript will be returned to the authors for correction and this may lead to significant delays in reviewing the manuscript. All files should be prepared using a word processor (.doc, or .docx format) and not as pdf files. All text should be 12-point font size (Times New Roman, Arial) with 1.5 spaced lines and 1 inch margins.

Language: Manuscript should be in English. Authors are strongly advised to ensure that the manuscript is written in clear and concise language, is intelligible to a broad readership and is of a publishable standard prior to submission. Manuscripts that are deficient in this respect may be rejected and returned to the author without peer review. To help authors avoid receiving negative comments from referees or editors about the poor use of the English language in their manuscripts, and for authors who are unsure of correct English usage, at least one of the following steps should be considered:

Have the manuscript reviewed for clarity by a colleague whose native language is English or by a colleague who has a good command of the English language.

Use of Human and / or Animal Subjects: The corresponding author must confirm that all research studies conducted using either vertebrates or higher invertebrates were performed in accordance with the relevant government's regulatory guidelines and regulations, and must include at an appropriate place in the article, a statement which includes details of the authority approving the experiments. In addition, for experiments involving human subjects, authors must state the committee approving the experiments, and include in their submission a statement confirming that informed consent was obtained from all subjects.

Proof reading: The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting or conversion errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g., new results, corrected values, title and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the Co-Editor-in-Chief.
