Instruction for Author
  • Organization of manuscripts


Manuscripts not exceeding 15 pages and send electronically with copyright form,also the manuscripts should be typed double-spaced on one side of high quality white A4 sheets with 2.50 cm margins, using Microsoft Word 2003 or a later version thereof. The sections should be arranged in the following order: Title Page, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgments, Abbreviations (if any), References. Only the first letters of words in the Title, Headings and Subheadings are capitalized. Headings should be in bold while Subheadings should be otherwise 
  • Title page


Includes the title of the article, authors’ names with full first names and middle initials, and affiliations. The affiliation should comprise the department, institution (university or company), city and state and should be typed as a footnote tothe author’s name. The name and complete mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address of the author responsible for correspondence (who is designated with an asterisk) should also be included for office purposes


  • Abstract:
A one paragraph abstract not exceeding 150 words is required, which should be arranged to highlight the purpose, methods used, results and major findings.
  • Keywords:


A list of 2-6 keywords, which express the precise content of the manuscript for indexing purposes.


  • Introduction:
Should present the purpose of the studies to be reported and their relationship to earlier work in the field, but it should not be an extensive review of the literature.
  • Materials and methods:


Should be sufficiently informative to allow competent reproduction of the experimental procedures presented, yet concise enough not to be repetitive of earlier published procedures. Note that all unusual hazards in the chemicals, equipment or procedures used in the study must be clearly identified.
  • Results:
Should present results in Tables and Figures plus some complimentary data in the main Text without extensive discussion of results.
  • Discussion:
Should be concise focusing on the interpreting of the results without its repeating.
  • Conclusion:
Should be a brief account of the major findings of the study not exceeding one typed page at the most.
  • Nomenclature :
Registered trade names should be capitalized whenever they are used, while trade or trivial names should not be capitalized. The chemical name or composition should be given in parentheses at the first occurrence of that name. Nomenclature should be systematic conforming to those used by the Chemical Abstracts Service and recommended by IUPAC and IUBMB.
  • Abbreviations:
Abbreviations are to be used sparingly, otherwise provide a notation section indicating all nonstandard abbreviations on a separate page prior to the references section. The metric system should be used for all measurements, which must be indicated in lower case letters (e.g., g, kg, m, ml, s), while Standard International (SI) units are to be used conforming to IUPAC. Define all symbols used  in equations and formulas. Include a list of all symbols in the notation section when extensively used.
  • Acknowledge:
Acknowledgments, including those for grant and financial support, should be typed and placed directly preceding the References section.
  • References:
References should be typed double-spaced and numbered sequentially in the order in which they are cited in the text. References should be cited in the text by the appropriate Arabic numerals and enclosed in square brackets. Titles of journals are abbreviated according to the Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index (American Chemical Society). Authors are responsible for the accuracy of the references. The style and punctuation should conform to the following examples.
  • Journal article:
 For journals that are not paginated continuously throughout the year (e.g., page numbering does not continue from issue to the next), the volume number should be followed by the issue number in regular parentheses. In contrast, only the volume number is required for journals that are paginated continuously throughout the year. Examples
