- Title of the article should be short, specific, phrased to identify the content and indicate the nature of study.
- Names should be in capitals prefixed with initials and separated by commas. For more than two authors the names should be followed by ‘and’ in small letters before the end of last name. Full address of the place of research in small letters should be typed below the names. Present address and E-mail ID of the author may be given as foot note.
- Manuscript should be written in English; spelling and grammar must be checked well. Author may get help using Microsoft Office Tools. Author must ensure that manuscript has not been submitted in any journal. Manuscripts should be type written in 12 size Times New Roman font with normal margins (1’’ at top, bottom, left and right) and line spacing of 1.5 throughout.
- The full length paper should have the titles ABSTRACT, KEYWORDS, MATERIAL AND METHODS, RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, CONCLUSION, REFERENCES - all typed in capitals and bold font - 12. The Research Note will have only one title REFERENCES.
- E-mail ID will be followed by Abstract which will be followed by Keywords (indexing terms) maximum up to a 8 words in lower case only
- e.g. Keywords : Genetic variability, disease resistance, high yielding variety (without a full stop at the end)
- ABSTRACT: The content should include the year, purpose, methodology and salient findings of the study not exceeding 250 words and not below the 200 words (within 200-220). It should be so organised that the reader need not refer to the article except for details.
- INTRODUCTION : Should be without title and indicate the reasons which prompted the research, objectives and the likely implications. The review of recent literature should be pertinent to the problem. The content must be brief and precise.
- MATERIAL AND METHODS : Should include very clearly the experimental techniques and the statistical methods adopted. Citation of standard work is sufficient for the well known methods.
- RESULTS AND DISCUSSION : Great care should be taken to highlight the important findings with support of the data well distinguished by statistical measures like CD, r, Z test etc. Too descriptive explanation for the whole data is not desirable. The treatments should be briefly expressed instead of abbreviations like T1, T 2 etc. The discussion should be crisp and relate to the limitations or advantages of the findings in comparison with the work of others.
The data in tables should not be duplicated in graphs and vice versa. Mean data for main treatment effects should be presented with appropriate SE± and CD values wherever necessary. The 2 or 3 way tables should be furnished only if the results are consistent over years and are distinguished to have consideration of significant practical value. SE± and CD values however, should be furnished in the tables for all interactions and should be explained in the results and discussion. The treatments should be mentioned at least in short forms if they are lengthy, but not abbreviated as T1, T2 and T3 etc. The weights and measures should be given in the metric system following the latest units eg. kg ha–1, kg ha–1 cm, mg g–1, ds m–1, g m-3, C mol kg–1 etc.
- Figure/bar diagram/artwork with caption. Tables must be numbered in the run of the text. Text should include references to all tables
- Figures / values in the column of the table should be uniform regarding the number of digits after decimal point. One can show either one or two digits after decimal point depending on the types of data or values, e.g. (100.0), (0.0), (3.1) or (100.00) (0.00) (3.19)
- Graph/bar diagram/artwork/figure
- All graphs or diagrams should have clarity to represent the values and should be well explained
- Avoid shading for better quality printing. Lines or bars of black and white only be preferred
- All Graphs/Bar Diagrams/Art Works/Figures should be presented in the run of the text
- In case of lack of knowledge or inability to follow the instructions as above, one may request Editor for further help after sending original excel data sheet
- CONCLUSION: Should be precise, focused to the objective not exceeding 100 words.
- REFERENCES : Literature cited should be latest. References dating back to more than 10 years are not desirable. Names of authors, their spelling and year of publication should coincide both in the text and references. The following examples should be followed while listing the references from different sources. List of references should be arranged alphabetically by authors’ names, and chronologically per author.
