Journal of Advanced Scientific Research (JASR) is an online Journal. This Journal publishes original research work that contributes significantly to further the scientific knowledge in subject areas Pharmaceutical Research, Chemistry, Chemical Technology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Medicine, Agro chemistry and applied Biosciences. The Journal publishes original research work either as a Full Research Paper or as a Short Communication. Review Articles on a current topic in the said fields are also considered for publication by the Journal.

Manuscript should be divided into Authors’ information page (should be supplied as separate file), Abstract, Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion or Results and Discussion, References, Illustrations (Tables and Figures including chemistry schemes along with titles and legends must be provided at appropriate places in the running text).

Authors publishing results from in-vivo experiments involving animals or humans should state whether due permission for conduction of these experiments was obtained, from the relevant ethics committees, in the Material and Methods section. In addition, authors wishing to publish research work involving human studies should also send a notary verified letter of approval from the Ethics Committee or the Institutional Review Board.

  • RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Can be clubbed or given as separate sections. Should clearly mention the results obtained after systemic procedure and the compilation of data. It may contain tables and figures and the number of table and figures should be clearly mentioned in appropriate place in the text. A proper discussion of significance of the results obtained must be given. In the discussion section similar studies may be given to correlate with current study. Citation of the previous studied must be properly given.
  • CONCLUSION: Must contain important findings and their correlation with the study. The conclusion must also contain significance of the findings for future studies/future scope/applications of the study.
  • REFERENCES: References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in parentheses.

Examples for citation:

  1. For Single reference [1] or as the case may be
  2. For two references [1, 2].
  3. For more than two references [1-4].
  4. For mixed references [1-3, 6] or [3, 9-12]

References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure. Avoid using abstracts as references. Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as “unpublished observations” with written permission from the source. Avoid citing a “personal communication” unless it provides essential information not available from a public source, in which case the name of the person and date of communication should be cited in parentheses in the text. For scientific articles, contributors should obtain written permission and confirmation of accuracy from the source of a personal communication. The commonly cited types of references are shown here.

Tables - All the tables and figures should be in the text at suitable place. Tables should show lines separating columns and rows except. Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals (Do not use Table 1.1, Table 3.1 etc. instead write Table 1) and bear a brief title in capital letters normal face with suitable numbering. Units of measurement should be abbreviated and placed below the column headings. Column headings or captions shall be in bold face. It is essential that all tables have legends, which explain the contents of the table. Tables should not be very large that they run more than one A4 sized page. Tables should not be prepared in the landscape format, i.e. tables that are prepared widthwise on the paper.

Figures - All the tables and figures should be in the text at suitable place. Figures should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a brief title in lower case bold face letters below the figure. All the Figs must be provided as an image (Not as editable graph). The quality of the image must be such that can be resized without causing blurredness.

Keys to symbols, abbreviations, arrows, numbers or letters used in the illustrations should not be written on the illustration itself but should be clearly explained in the legend. Avoid inserting a box with key to symbols, in the figure or below the figure. In case of photomicrographs, magnification should be mentioned either directly on them or in the legend. Symbols, arrows or letters used in photomicrographs should contrast with the background.

Tables and figures must be cited in the text in numerical order. Table 2 cannot be first cited before Table 1.

Symbols and abbreviations- Abbreviations should be those well known in scientific literature. In vitro, in vivo, in situ, ex vivo, ad libitum, et al. and so on are two words each and should be written in italics. None of the above is a hyphenated word. Names of plants, animals and bacteria should be in italics. Words such as carrageenan-induced inflammation, paracetamol-induced hepatotoxicity, isoproterenol-induced myocardial necrosis, dose-dependent manner are all hyphenated.

SHORT COMMUNICATION- The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 5 pages in length. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion - all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.

REVIEW ARTICLES- Should not be less than 6 pages, contains up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant and recent literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers. Review articles need not be divided into sections such as Material and Methods and Results and Discussion, but should definitely have an Abstract and Introduction, if necessary. 

Manuscripts prepared according to the instructions provided, will be accepted only and that fail to conform to the requirements of the Journal, as specified, will be rejected. Editor has the right to publish/not publish the accepted manuscript until it is withdrawn by the author.
