Online Open Access Journals

All Journals of Online Open Access accept Original quality manuscripts after rigorous Peer Review process. We accept Original research articles, Review articles, Short communications, Protocols, Case reports, Survey reports , Abstracts, Addendum’s, Announcements, Article-commentaries, Book reviews, Rapid communications, Letters to the editor, Annual meeting abstracts, Conference proceedings, Calendars, Meeting-reports, News, Obituaries, Product reviews, Hypotheses and Analyses that comes under the aim and scope of the respective Journals.

Manuscript preparation:

Submission of a manuscript implies that one of the original authors have submitted and the same should not be submitted by anyone on their behalf. The work has not been published elsewhere previously in English or other language (except in form of published abstract as a lecture or part of an academic thesis), that is not under consideration for publication elsewhere and the work should be approved by all authors associated with the specific work or manuscript.The submitting author takes responsibility for the article, data represented and opinion submitted during submission and peer review process.

Article Processing Charges:

Currently all publications are free of cost and we are not asking for any kind of payment towards article publication. We request authors to help us in joining our Editorial Board/ Reviewer panel for enabling us in provide you the best service on time with scientific ethics.

Please note that we are following the Open Access publishing model and non-funded by any agencies/ organization. So, we levy minimal article processing charges which should be covered by the author(s). In case the author is under membership of our organization the above charges will be according to the membership policy.

We are collecting the processing fee for online maintenance of Journals, Software and infrastructure charges. Moreover, we do not receive any payment for subscription and the articles are freely accessible over the internet in public domain. Authors are requested to pay a fair minimum charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their Manuscript has been accepted for publication.


Article preparation guidelines:

All the submitted manuscripts must be in English language and file format must be Microsoft word (DOC, DOCX) or Portable document format (PDF). The figures and tables, supporting materials should be in separate files.

Submitted manuscripts should be divided into: Manuscript title, Author Information, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, Endnotes, References, List of abbreviations used (if any), Competing interests, Authors’ contributions, Illustrations and figures (if any), Tables and captions and other additional files (if any).

Manuscript title:

The title should be limited to 25 words or less and should avoid abbreviations. The title should be a brief phrase describing the objective.

Author information:

Full names and affiliation of all author(s), including contact details of corresponding author, identified by an asterisk (Telephone, Fax and E-mail address).


The abstract should not exceed 350 words, must be informative, self-explanatory, briefly present the research, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant methods, and point out major findings and conclusions. It should summarize the manuscript content. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided and should not cite references in abstract. The preferable format should accommodate a description of the study background, methods, results and conclusion.


Three to ten keywords representing the main content of the article after abstract, standard abbreviations should use as it is important for indexing.


The iIntroduction part should provide clear statement of the study, emphasizes the importance of the research, presents related literature, and gives enough information to understand the authors’ objectives in a generalized way and ends with a paragraph stating the objectives of the research.

Materials and methods:

This section should provide complete overview of the design of the study, the type of materials involved, a clear description of all comparisons and the type of analysis used to enable replication of the methods. New procedure should be described in details and existing one should be cited properly and mentioned briefly. Identify the methods, apparatus (give the manufacturer’s name and address in parentheses), and capitalize the trade name.

Results and discussion:

The results and discussion may be combined into a single section or presented separately. The results and discussion sections may also be broken into subsections with short, informative headings. It should be provided with complete details of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the author’s experiments and previously published findings should be written in the present tense. It should be clear and concise, supported by tables and figures, statistical analyses without repeating table or figure values. The Discussion should clearly and precisely interpret results supported by statistical analyses.


This should state clearly the main conclusions of the research and explain their importance and relevancewithout using abbreviations, acronyms, or references.


This section should acknowledge anyone contributed or supported towards the work and does not meet the criteria of authorship. It includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc. Authors should obtain permission to acknowledge from all those mentioned in the Acknowledgements section.

Competing interests:

Declaration of competing interest should be placed here. All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Authors are required to complete a declaration of competing interests. All competing interests that are declared will be listed at the end of published articles. Where an author gives no competing interests, the listing will read ‘The author(s) declare that they have no competing interests’.

List of abbreviations:

If any abbreviations are used in the text they should be defined in the text at first use, and a list of abbreviations can be provided, which should precede the competing interests and authors’ contributions.

Authors’ contributions:

In order to give appropriate credit to each author of a paper, the individual contributions of authors to the manuscript should be specified in this section. Authors may use the following wordings for this: Author A designed the study, wrote the protocol, wrote the first draft of the manuscript. Author B and Author C managed the analyses of the study. Author C managed the literature searches etc. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.


Endnotes should be designated within the text using a superscript lowercase letter and all notes (along with their corresponding letter) should be included in the Endnotes section. Please format this section in a paragraph rather than a list.


References must be listed at the end of the manuscript and numbered in the order that they appear in the content of the manuscript. Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant authors. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Journal abbreviations follow Index Medicus/MEDLINE. Citations in the reference list should include all named authors, up to the first 30 before adding ‘et al.’ Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference as (preferably PubMed) because the references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the cited paper increase indexing in search platforms.

Please use the following style for the reference list:

Illustrations should be provided as separate files, not embedded in the text file. The preferred file formats for images are JPEG, DOCX/DOC (single page only),PNG, TIFF, in case images are with separate components on different layers, send us the Photoshop(PSD) files.

All images must be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.

The legends should be included in the main manuscript text file at the end of the document, rather than being a part of the figure file. For each figure, the following information should be provided: Figure number (in sequence, using Arabic numerals – i.e. Figure 1, 2, 3 etc); short title of figure (maximum 15 words); detailed legend, up to 300 words. Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. (Please note that it is the responsibility of the author(s) to obtain permission from the copyright holder to reproduce figures or tables that have previously been published elsewhere).


Each table should be numbered and cited in sequence using Arabic numerals (i.e. Table 1, 2, 3 etc.). Tables should also have a title (above the table) that summarizes the whole table; it should be no longer than 15 words. Detailed legends may then follow, but they should be concise. Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. Tabular data provided as additional files can be uploaded as an Excel spreadsheet (.xls ) or comma separated values (.csv). As with all files, please use the standard file extensions.

Tables and equations as graphics:

If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.

SI units should be used throughout (liter and molar are permitted, however).

Supplementary information:

Discrete items of the Supplementary Information (for example, figures, tables) referred to at an appropriate point in the main text of the paper. Summary diagram/figure included as part of the Supplementary Information (optional). We recommend CSV rather than PDF for tabular data. All Supplementary Information should supplied as a single PDF file(CSV rather than PDF for tabular data), where possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).

Proofs and reprints:

Electronic proofs will be sent as an e-mail attachment to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Authors will have free electronic access to the article and can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.
