1. Manuscript Preparation

All submitted articles must be written in good English. In your submission, please state that:

(i) The article has not been published elsewere before;

(ii) It is not being considered concurrently for publication elsewhere;

(iii)The research reported in the manuscript was conducted in accordance with general ethical guidelines. Manuscripts must comply with the following guidelines, failing which they may be returned for revision before entering the review process.

2. Manuscript Stytle

Manuscripts must be prepared using Microsoft Word (version 2003 or 2007), using Corbel as the font type with font size 11pt. All paragraphs including footnotes and notes under each Table should be justified. The manuscript should be formatted in one column with Tables and Figures at the end. Leave a blank line between each paragraph, each entry in the reference section, and between each section or part. The preferred length of a paper is 10-15 pages inclusive of everything (Tables, Figures, References and Appendices).

The organization of the manuscript includes Introduction, Methods, Results and/or Discussion, Conclusions and References.


In general a 2-paragraph introduction is preferable. The first paragraph describes clearly the rationale of the study and the second one the purpose of the study. Recent important works should be cited, but no extensive review of literature is needed. The length of the Introduction should not exceed 1 page.


Describe the design of the study clearly. The study sample should be described in detail, including sampling methods, sample size estimation, and, if any, method of randomization. Identify the procedures and equipment (manufacturer's name and address) in sufficient details especially for new or modified methods, so that other investigators can repeat the work. Use metric units throughout the text. Specify the statistical analyses to be applied, and computer program(s) used.


Present the results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations. Do not repeat in the text all the data in the tables and / or illustrations. Percentages are presented in no more than 1 decimal; do not use decimal if the number of study subjects is 100 or less. Avoid using percentages in small number of study subjects (40 subjects or less). Include numbers of observations and statistical significance when appropriate. Detailed statistical analyses, mathematical derivations, and the like may sometimes be suitabley presented in the form of one or more appendices. When presenting statistical analyses, include the tests used with their values (e.g., x2 or t), degrees of freedom, and P values. We encourage the use of confidence intervals, whenever appropriate, besides P values.

Discussion Emphasize the new and important aspects of the study and conclusions that follow from them. The discussion should be focused on the interpretation and significance of the findings. Do not repeat in detail data that have been given in the Results section. Link the conclusions with the purpose of study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not supported by data. Recommendations, when appropriate, may be included.
