INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

The International Journal of Pharmaceutical Research and Bio-Science is a Bi-monthly published online Journal, which publishes innovative research papers, reviews, mini-reviews, short communications and notes dealing with Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmaceutics, Novel drug delivery system, Nanotechnology, Pharmacology, Analytical chemistry, Pharmacognosy, Pharmacy practice, Polymer sciences, Pharmacogenomics, Biomaterial sciences, Natural chemistry, Medicinal chemistry, Pharmacoinformatics, Biopharmaceutics, Biotechnology) And Biological Sciences (Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Cell biology, Molecular biology, Microbiology, Neurobiology, Cytology, Pathology, Immunobiology, Allied Sciences). All manuscripts are subject to rapid peer review. Those of high quality (not previously published and not under consideration for publication in another journal) will be published without delay.

The preferred format of all manuscript is MS Word. Figures and images must be inserted in the manuscript at the position they should appear when published.

It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, References.
Title page should contain title of the paper in bold face, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the address in normal face lower case. The author to whom all correspondence be addressed should be denoted by an asterisk mark. The title should be as short as possible and precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention “*Address For correspondence” and provide a functional e-mail address.
Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.
Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract.

Shall start as a continuation to introduction on the same page. All important materials used along with their source shall be mentioned. The main methods used shall be briefly described, citing references. Trivial details may be avoided. New methods or substantially modified methods may be described in sufficient detail.
All findings presented in tabular or graphical form shall be described in this section. The data should be statistically analyzed and the level of significance stated. Data that is not statistically significant need only to be mentioned in the text - no illustration is necessary. All Tables and figures must have a title or caption and a legend to make them self-explanatory. Discussion must be written with reference to the tables and figures and by considering information from the literature and should contain a short review of the results. Any Statements made in the any above sections should not be repeated here. There is no restriction for result and discussion to be written separately.
It 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 superscript in square brackets. 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.

Each table must be given on a separate page with a brief but complete and self explanatory caption so that the reader can easily understand the results presented in the table. Please do not duplicate material that is already presented in the figures.
Photos or drawings must have a good contrast of dark and light. Legends of figures should be brief, but complete and self- explanatory so that the reader can easily understand the results presented in the figure. Please do not duplicate material that is already presented in the tables.
Authors using experimental animals and human subjects in their investigation must seek approval from the appropriate Ethical Committee. The method section must include a statement to prove that the investigation was approved and that informed consent was obtained. Authors have to submit scan copy of their Approval Certificate as an attachment via editor’s email id and in cover note they have to mention their protocol number.
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 10 pages in length in total. 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.
Should be about 15-25 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant 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 materials and Methods and Results and Discussion, but should definitely have an Abstract, Keywords and Introduction, if necessary.
All manuscripts (must be in English and in MS Word format) and should be submitted via our online system or through email editorijprbs@gmail.com,onlineijprbs@gmail.com,editorijprbs@rediffmail.com or onlineijprbs@redifmail.com as an attachment for quick evaluation
