Ethical Approval

Any research involved in occasional/intentional/regular usage of animals, human clinical trials should get the appropriate approvals from the concerned authorities. The corresponding information such as approval details, name of the relevant ethics committee and the reference number for their judgment should be stated in the cover letter.

Clinical Trial Information

Standardized and authorized protocols should be followed for conducting and reporting the clinical trials on humans. Renowned reporting guidelines like CONSORT, PRISMA, STROBE, COREQ, ENTREQ, SAMPL etc. provided by Equator network & NLM's Research Reporting Guidelines should be followed for enhancing the quality and transparency of health research.

Preparing the Manuscript

Title Page

The title page of the manuscript should contain short yet descriptive title of the manuscript (Should not exceed 15 words), list of authors with their highest academic degrees and affiliations (address of the University where the research was conducted), details of the corresponding authors including name and complete address with telephone, fax numbers and e-mail address, word count, number of tables and figures, sources of support, any disclaimers and conflict of interest declaration.

Abstract

The original research articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and case reports require structured abstracts. The abstract should provide the context or background for the study and should state the study's purpose, basic procedures, main findings, and principal conclusions. It should highlight novel and significant aspects of the study or observations, note important limitations. Authors need to ensure that abstract should accurately reflect the content and should not be same as introduction and others sections. Authors need to provide the clinical trials registration numbers (for clinical trials) at the end of the abstract.

Keywords

Three to six words which explain the research briefly and have direct connection with the script can be used as keywords

Abbreviations

All the abbreviations which are used in the article should be listed here.

Introduction

Introduction should provide the context or background for the study and state the purpose or research objectives, hypothesis of the study or the observation. The content in the introduction should be cited properly using the latest references. Avoid providing unrelated and unlimited information.

Methods

An elaborated description containing design, various protocols, techniques, instruments used for the experimental conduct and proof in support of proposed hypothesis or theory should be covered. This category should rationally explain why and how the specified experimental approaches are adopted. This section should exclusively cover experimental details that were listed in the protocol before starting the experiments, all information obtained during the study should be provided in the Results section. Standard protocols should be credited with appropriate citations.

Results

A logical sequence for the presentation of results (text, tables, and figures) should be followed in the order of significance. The most important findings should be prioritized. Detailed representation of primary and secondary outcomes identified in the methods section is highly suggested. The results should be presented in tables and figures at the places of demand to improve the accessibility of the data. Do not repeat all the data in the tables or figures in the text.

Discussion

A clear linking of the main findings with the purpose of the study should be explicitly discussed in this section. A logical conclusion, interpretation and data generation from the experimental study should be the aim of this section. For experimental studies, it is useful to begin the discussion by briefly summarizing the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and for clinical practice.

Acknowledgements

This contains the details of financial and moral support to the authors, grants, funding agencies, partners, collaborations, etc.
