Ethics in Publishing
The authors are requested to strictly follow the author’s instructions keeping in mind that the publication of an article in our peer-reviewed journals of Panacea Research Library is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge in distinct fields. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors/scientist and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewers and the publisher of Panacea Research Library.
Language and language services
Please write your text in good English (American or British)
Authors must state in a covering letter when submitting papers for publication the novelty embodied in their work or in the approach taken in their research.
Essential title page information
• Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
• Author names and affiliations. Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors’ affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author’s name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.
• Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.
• Present/permanent address. If an author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a “Present address” (or “Permanent address”) may be indicated as a footnote to that author’s name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.
Every author is required to declare his or her individual contribution to the article: all authors must have materially participated in the research and/or article preparation, so roles for all authors should be described. The statement that all authors have approved the final article should be true and included in the disclosure. You can download the contributors form from home page.
Please submit, with the manuscript, the names, addresses and e-mail addresses of 2 potential referees. Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.
Preparation of manuscript
It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the Microsoft word processor used. The text should be in single column format, 1.5 line spacing, 12 size and Times New Roman font. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processor’s options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. Do not embed “graphically designed” equations or tables, but prepare these using the word processor’s facility. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns. Do not import the figures into the text file but, instead, indicate their approximate locations directly in the electronic text and on the manuscript. See also the section on Electronic illustrations.
Structure of research/review article
A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
The abstract must not exceed 300 words.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, “and”, “of”). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Subdivision – numbered sections
Divide your article into clearly defined sections as Introduction, Experimental, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement, Conflict of interest and References. Subsections can be added with suitable title.
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
Results should be clear and concise.
This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Do not combine Results and Discussion sections. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section. In review article you may omit the material, methods, result and discussion.
Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. List here those individuals who provided help during the research.
Conflict of interest
All authors are requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with other people or organizations within three years of beginning the submitted work that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence, their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding.
If there are any issues or conflicts of interest which might prevent the author transferring copyright, they should inform the Editor when submitting the manuscript.
The authors must reports no confliction in case of absence of confliction at the end of manuscript.
Define abbreviations that are not standard in this field in a footnote to be placed on the first page of the article. Such abbreviations that are unavoidable in the abstract must be defined at their first mention there, as well as in the footnote. Ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either “Unpublished results” or “Personal communication”. Citation of a reference as “in press” implies that the item has been accepted for publication and a copy of the title page of the relevant article must be submitted.
List of references and citations to these will be formatted according to the journal style which is described below:
Reference should be cited in square brackets as superscript after the punctuation marks in the text.
For more than three authors, names of first three authors followed by “et al” should be written.
Reference to a journal publication:

As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.
Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.
Present simple formulae in the line of normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text).
Figures should be placed at the appropriate place in the article and not at the end of the manuscript. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. Supply captions separately below the figure, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.
Tables should be placed at the appropriate place in the article and not at the end of the manuscript. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
