Body Text

Respective Manuscript types must be written with the above-mentioned structure format. Any of the mentioned structure missing will be sent back to the author for further modifications.


The introduction should set the atmosphere of the paper by providing a clear report of the study, the relevant documentation on the study subject and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should be general enough to attract a reader’s attention from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and Methods

This section should provide a complete overview of the design of the study. Detailed descriptions of materials, participants, comparisons, interventions and types of analysis should be mentioned. However, only new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address.


The results section should provide complete details of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The results should be written in the past tense wherein describing findings in the experiments. Earlier published findings should be written in the present tense. Results and discussion may be combined or may be presented as a separate section. Theory and detailed explanation of data should not be included in the results but must be included in discussion section.


This section includes if author wants to acknowledge any people, grant details, funds, etc.


Figures are to be submitted at the end of the manuscript (after references). Please ensure that all the figures submitted comply with our Image requirements. Figures submitted should be at least 300 dpi, and submitted in Tiff, Gif or JPEG formats only. Figures must be intelligible for the readers in all disciplines. Excessive colour and unnecessary details must be avoided. Acceptable pixel size for the Figures is 800 pixels (Standard) and 1200 pixels (high resolution). All the figures submitted must be in standard or high-resolution quality. Figure legends must be short and mentioned below each figure. The respective Figure numbers must be mentioned in the body of the manuscript sequentially within parenthesis.


Tables are to be presented in rows and columns format rather than submitting them in image format after the Figures. Pie diagrams, Charts etc. are considered as "Figures". Tables presented in figure formats are not acceptable. Table legends must be mentioned above the Table. Tables must be provided at the end of the manuscript below figures. Symbols and Abbreviations used in the tables must be clearly represented after the Table legend. The respective Table numbers must be mentioned in the body of the manuscript sequentially within parenthesis.

Equations and Formulas:

Normal text is to be used for mathematical symbols, Greek letters and any other special characters. Math-Type is used only for formulae that cannot be produced using normal text.


SI/IU Units must be represented. A space must be given between number and unit.

Supplementary Information:

Supporting material that cannot be included, and which is not essential for inclusion, in the full text of the manuscript, but would nevertheless benefit the reader. It should not be essential in understanding the conclusions of the paper but should contain data that are additional or complementary and directly relevant to the article content. Authors are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to submit Supplementary data whenever appropriate.

Clinical Images

Clinical images are the pictures that show the clinical findings of a particular case of the patient. The clinical pictures should include questions and answers that should educate or remind readers about an important clinical situation or event. The image should not just describe the picture; however, should be informative enough from a clinical teaching view.

Formatting guidelines:

The title should be less than five to eight words. The text describing a clinical question should be within 150 words. The images can be uploaded in .tiff, .jpg or .jpeg format. We recommend using high-quality images. Text should be in one double-spaced electronic document.

Patient Consent Form

Patient consent form is required if the images/figures of the patient are identifiable. If, the eyes are masked then the form is not mandatory.
