Article Submission  

All articles must be formatted correctly and include research-based original data to allow for a thorough review. The best way to send your contributions is email, as an attached file. Our preferred word-processing format is Microsoft Word. Manuscripts must be single-spaced, in 12-point font (including the references and legends of tables and figures) on sheets of uniform size (preferably ISO A4 or 8 1/4 x 11") with wide margins.

Articles must contain the following:

  • Title (up to ten words)

  • Author(s) 

  • Primary institution/Laboratory name, city, state and country

  • The body of article

If there is more than one establishment involved in the work, authors' names should be linked to the appropriate establishment by numbers or the symbols *, †, ‡, §, and ¶ in that order. A summary giving a bulleted outline of content should appear for the introduction.

If there are any abbreviations in your article, they should be placed in brackets after the full title on the first occasion they are used.

The body of article should contein the fallowing sections:

  • Key Words,
  • Background,
  • Methods,
  • Results and Discussion,
  • Conclusions, and
  • References

References should not normally exceed 50, and 20–30 references are frequently adequate.

REFERENCES: References in the paper must be numbered in the order that they appear in the text. The list of references at the end of the paper should give all the authors' names and initials unless there are more than 6 uthors, in which case 'et al' is used for subsequent names. This is followed by the title, abbreviated according to the "List of Journals Indexed" in Index Medicus, the year of publication, the volume number, and the first and last page numbers. References to books should give the names of any editors, place of publication, publisher and year, in place of the journal information.
