Manuscript Preparation


Journal Template

The manuscript should be written in clear, concise and grammatically correct English. It is recommended that you ask colleagues to read over your paper prior to submission to ensure it is of a high standard and conforms to a high level of scientific writing.


Though it is not necessary to format your paper in this way or to use this file, using these word templates for journal articles may help to speed the publication of accepted articles.



Format and style of main manuscript

For the main manuscript, AnaPub Publications prefers to receive a single complete file that includes all figures and tables in Word’s .docx format (Word 2007, 2010, or 2008 or 2011 for a Mac). The Supplementary Material should be submitted as a single separate file in .docx or PDF format To aid in the organization of Supplementary Materials.

LaTeX users should use our LaTeX template and either convert files to Microsoft Word .docx or submit a PDF file.

Use single spacing throughout the text, tables, figure legends, and References and Notes. Technical terms should be defined. Symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms should be defined the first time they are used. All tables and figures should be cited in numerical order.

Manuscripts should be assembled in the following order:


Title

The title of the article should be precise and brief and must not be more than 120 characters. Authors should avoid the use of non-standard abbreviations and question marks in titles. The first letter of each word should be in capital letters except for articles, conjunctions and prepositions.


Title page

Title page should include paper title, author(s) full name and affiliation, corresponding author(s) names complete affiliation/address, along with phone, fax and email.


Abstract

Abstracts of Research Articles and Reports should explain to the general reader why the research was done, what was found and why the results are important. They should start with some brief BACKGROUND information: a sentence giving a broad introduction to the field comprehensible to the general reader, and then a sentence of more detailed background specific to your study. This should be followed by an explanation of the OBJECTIVES/METHODS and then the RESULTS. The final sentence should outline the main CONCLUSIONS of the study, in terms that will be comprehensible to all our readers. The Abstract is distinct from the main body of the text, and thus should not be the only source of background information critical to understanding the manuscript. Please do not include citations or abbreviations in the Abstract. The abstract should be 200 words or less.


Keywords

Key words (6-10) should be provided below the Abstract to assist with indexing of the article.


Introduction

Original Investigations and Brief Report contain the section of Introduction, Material, Methods (or Materials and Methods), Results, Discussion (or Results and Discussion). The manuscript style must be uniform throughout the text and 10 pt Times New Roman font should be used. The full term for an abbreviation should precede its first appearance in the text unless it is a standard unit of measurement. The reference numbers should be given in square brackets in the text. Italics should be used for Binomial names of organisms (Genus and Species), for emphasis and for unfamiliar words or phrases. Non-assimilated words from Latin or other languages should also be italicized.


Text Organization

Section headings should be numbered sequentially, left aligned and have the first letter capitalized, starting with the introduction. Sub-section headings however, should be in lower-case and italicized with their initials capitalized. They should be numbered as 1.1, 1.2, etc.


Results

Results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables, and figures. Repetitive presentation of the same data in tables and figures should be avoided. The results should not contain material appropriate to the Discussion. All tables, graphs, statistical analyses, and sample calculations should be presented in this section.


Discussion

The results should be discussed in relation to any hypotheses advanced in the Introduction. Comment on results and indicate possible sources of error. Place the study in the context of other work reported in the literature.


Conclusion

The main conclusions of the experimental work should be presented. The contribution of the work to the scientific community and its economic implications should be emphasized.


Acknowledgment

The source of financial support must be acknowledged. Authors must declare any financial support or relationships that may pose conflict of interest in the covering letter submitted with the manuscript.


List of Abbreviations (if any)

If abbreviations are used in the text either they should be defined in the text where first used, or a list of abbreviations can be provided.


Availability of Data and Materials

The source of data and materials should be mentioned in the manuscript, in support of the findings. Sharing research data is integral to its transparency and reproducibility. Data sharing involves the citation and availability of data that support the findings of the research.


Conflict of interest

All potential conflicts of interest (competing interests) that could have a direct or indirect influence on the work must be disclosed by the authors. Even if an author does not have a conflict, disclosing affiliations and interests allows for a more comprehensive and open approach, which leads to a more accurate and objective evaluation of the work. Conflicts of interest, whether genuine or imagined, are a perspective to which the readers are entitled.


The following are some examples of potential conflicts of interest that are directly or indirectly related to the research:

  • Financial competing interests include (but are not limited to):
  • Type of support/grant number
  • Institutional Conflicts of Interest
  • Funds received by the author
  • Funds received by the institution
  • Travel allowances for the research
  • Funds received for article preparation and reviewing
  • Funds for conducting review activities
  • Support provided for article writing assistance, for drugs, equipment, etc
  • Paid lectures
  • Pending fund or grant
  • Undisclosed conflict of interest in a submitted article (View COPE guidelines)
  • Undisclosed conflict of interest in a published article (View COPE guidelines)

Funding Information

The authors should acknowledge the funders of this manuscript and provide all necessary funding information. The authors need to declare the funding sources of their manuscripts clearly by providing the name of the funding agency or financial support along with allotted grant/award number in round brackets (if applied), for instance, “This work was financially supported by [Name of the funding agency] (Grant number XXX).


Similarly, if a paper does not have any specific funding source, and is part of the employment of the authors, then the name of the employer will be required. Authors will have to clearly state that the funder was involved in writing, editing, approval, or decision to publish the article.


Author Contributions

Authors are required to include a statement of responsibility in the manuscript that specifies the contribution of every author.


All kinds of measurements should be reported only in International System of Units (SI).


All conflict of interest disclosure forms are collected by the corresponding author. It is sufficient for the corresponding author to sign the disclosure form on behalf of all authors in author collaborations when legal agreements for representation allow it. The templates of the form can be found here.


Before the reference list, the corresponding author will include a summary statement in the text of the article that reflects what is reported in the potential conflict of interest disclosure form (s). Author(s) may declare(s) names of reviewers who they think might have a potential conflict of interest; therefore, Editorial Office could avoid inviting such reviewers for an unbiased opinion.


Reference

It is the Authors responsibility to ensure that the information in each reference is complete and accurate.


References must be listed in the below Style only. All references should be numbered sequentially [in square brackets] in the text and listed in the same numerical order in the reference section. The reference numbers must be finalized and the bibliography must be fully formatted before submission.


The references should be relevant to the study and should refer to the original research sources. Self-citation and self-interest should be avoided by the authors, editors and peer-reviewers.
