3-6 keywords are to be provided by the authors. These keywords should be typed at the end of the abstract on the same page.

The introduction should not be an extensive literature review although it should provide sufficient background information for the reader to understand and evaluate the results of the present study.

The section should include sufficient technical information to allow the experiments to be performed. Procedural detail that has been published previously should be referred to by citation.

Results should be described as concisely as possible in one of the following ways: text, table(s), or figure(s). The reproducibility and statistical significance of measurements, material or biological data, must be included where relevant. There must not be any overlap between results shown in table and results written in text. Results should appear in logical sequence i.e. most important results should be written first. Absolute value should be written with method of description like percentages, mean, median etc.

The discussion should provide an interpretation of the results and their significance with regard to previously published work.  Discussion should start with summary of main results. All results should be interpreted and compared with existing knowledge of the subject. Reasons for the findings should be discussed. Implication of results obtained should be discussed in detail. Limitations of the study should also be mentioned.

A short, paragraph summarizing the most important finding(s) of the research is Required.

The source of any financial support, gifts, technical assistance and advice received for the work being published must be indicated in the Acknowledgments section.

Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with authors. Citations of literature in the text must be presented in numerical order and a separate Reference List should be supplied. Type numbers in square brackets and do not use superscripts. References should include the list of authors (first name-abbreviated, last name), title of the article, Journal/Book title, (book publisher), year, volume number, issue number and page number.

Journal / Magazine Article
Numerical order. Author's surname Author's first name or initial. Title of article. Title of the Journal Year of publication; Volume Number: Page numbers of article.

For example:
Llabot J.M., Palma S.D., Manzo R.H., Allemandi D.A.. Design of novel antifungal mucoadhesive films Part I. Pre-formulation studies. Int. J. Pharm.2007; 330:54–60.

Numerical order. Author's surname Author's first name or initial. Title of the Book. Edition [if not first]. Place of publication: Publisher's name; Year of publication.

For example:

Rathbone, M.J. Oral mucosal drug delivery. 4th ed. Marcel Dekker, Inc.: New York, 1996.

Book chapter
Numerical order. Author's surname Author's first name or initial. Title of chapter. In: Editor's surname Editor's's first name or initial, editor. Title of the Book. Edition [if not first]. Place of publication:Publisher's name; Year of publication.
