Quide for Authors

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript only through the online manuscript submission system. Submissions by anyone other than one of authors will not be accepted.

Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, only electronic MS-Word file format can be submitted through the online submission system.

To expedite the review process, please format the manuscript in ways as follow:

1. Manuscripts should be written in good English. An one page Persian-language summary is require from the Persian language authors. If authors be non-Persian this persian summary will be prepared by the journal after acceptation.

2. Manuscripts should be typed in single spaced. This will save pages, makes it easier for reviewers to handle and helps slow down global warming by using less paper. Authors should be made sure all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references are in 12 pt Times New Roman.

3. Manuscript should be submitted as a single MS Word document without authors' name and affiliation. All revised manuscripts prepared for publication also should be sent as a single editable Word document. The file should include the complete text, references, tables and figures.

4- In the subsequent text, the following format is desirable: Title, ABSTRACT, KEYWORDS, INTRODUCTION (concise review of literature and formulation of the aim of the work), EXPERIMENTAL (reagents, instrumentation, and operating procedures), RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, ACKNOWLEDGMENT (if it is necessary) AND REFERENCES.

5- All figures and tables are given separately after text and not should be embed tables and figures in the text (tables one on each page, figure captions and then figures one on each page).

6- Tables should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Footnotes to tables should be placed below the table body and indicated with superscript lowercase letters. 

7- All references should be numbered in square brackets in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section in the order they appear in the text, as shown below:
