Information for Contributors
All manuscripts should be addressed to:
The Editor, The IIS University Journal of Science and Technology (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Submission of an article implies that it has not been previously published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and further, that if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere.
The IIS University Journal of Science and Technology is a multidisciplinary journal and therefore research and review papers of general significance that are written clearly and well organized will be given preference. All papers, solicited and unsolicited, will be first assessed by a Reviewing Editor. Papers found unsuitable in terms of the overall requirements of the journal will be returned to the authors. The others will be sent for detailed review. Authors of these papers will be notified of acceptance, need for revision or rejection of the paper. It may be noted that papers once rejected cannot be resubmitted in the same format. Illustrations and other materials to be reproduced from other publications must be properly credited.
The first page of the manuscript should contain the following: article title, the names and affiliations of all authors, and the name, complete mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address of the person to whom all correspondence should be sent. The manuscript should be typewritten, double-spaced, with one inch margins on all sides. The pages should be numbered consecutively throughout the paper.
Categories of Manuscripts
Research Article (not exceeding 6000 words) The paper should describe recent and confirmed findings. The paper should contain following sections (a) an abstract, (b) key words, not more than 5 (listed alphabetically) (c) introduction, precise to introduce the subject with citations of relevant literature, (d) material and methods, (e) results and discussion, (f) acknowledgements, and (g) references.
Short Communication (not exceeding 2000 words) contain important new findings that are novel and of fairly broad interest. They should include a brief abstract and an introductory paragraph. Body of the text will not have any title, like abstract, material and methods, results, and discussion except the acknowledgements and references.
Review (not exceeding 6000 words) is expected to survey and discuss current developments in a field. They should be well focused and organized, and avoid a general ‘textbook’ style.
General articles/Opinion (not exceeding 4000 words, 6 display items, tables and figures) discuss current trends in research in a field that would be of interest to readers outside the field. These include interdisciplinary topics, science policy and science administration, some aspects of the application of science and technology to human needs or the impact of science and technology on society/ecosystems/life. The articles should include an abstract, introductory paragraph, brief subheads at appropriate places, illustrations that will help a general reader, and references.
Research News Articles (not exceeding 2000 words and 3 display items) are intended to inform non-specialists about recently published advances or important findings.
Meeting reports (less than 1500 words) deal with highlights/technical contents of a conference/symposium/discussion-meeting, etc. conveying to readers the significance of important advances and should be submitted by society only. Reports must avoid merely listing brief accounts of topics discussed.
Historical commentary/notes (limited to about 3000 words) inform readers about interesting aspects of personalities or institutions of science or about watershed events in the history/development of science. Illustrations and photographs are welcome. Brief items will also be considered.
References should be cited in the text by author and year. If there are more than two authors, reference should be made to the first author followed by et al in the text. The examples of citations are as follows:
