Types of Articles:
Original Research Articles: These should describe new and carefully analysed and confirmed findings, backed with experimental procedures. Articles should be given in sufficient details for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be concise, required to describe and interpret the work clearly. Please include in the main paper a set of key words ; an abstract- summarizing background of the work; research results and its implications. Followed by INTRODUCTION, MATERIALS and METHODS, RESULTS, DISCUSSION, ACKNOWLEDGMENTS and REFERENCES. All these must be in capital letters but not underlined.
Short Research Communication: These should presents a concise study, or sometimes preliminary but innovative. A research finding that might be less substantial than a full research paper. Short Research Communication is limited to 3000 words (excluding references and abstract). The main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. It should have a set of key wordsand an abstract summarizing background of the work, the results and their implications. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Section should be combined and followed by CONCLUSION. MATERIALS AND METHODS will remain as a separate section.
Review or mini-review: A review article typically presents a summary and critical evaluation of information that has already been published, and considers the progress of current research toward clarifying a stated problem or topic.
