Author Guidelines

1. Title of the article should be short, specific, phrased to identify the content and indicate the nature of study.

2. 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.

3. The full length paper should have the titles ABSTRACT, MATERIAL AND METHODS, RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, REFERENCES-all typed in capitals and bold font - 12. The Research Note will have only one title REFERENCES.

4. ABSTRACT: The content should include the year, purpose, methodology and salient findings of the experiment in brief not exceeding 200 words. It should be so organised that the reader need not refer to the article except for details.

5. INTRODUCTION : Should be without title and indicate the reasons which prompted the research, objectives and the likely implication. The review of recent literature should be pertinent to the problem. The content must be brief and precise.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
