The Universe Publishing Group (UniversePG) is published and devoted to the publications of the original research covering the fields of Biological Sciences, Medical and Health Sciences, Engineering, Arts and Humanities, and Business studies. Contributions including original research and review are published in English after reviewing by two peers. The authors should submit an article that has not been offered to any other journals for prior or simultaneous publication.
The text of the article should be clear and precise. Manuscripts should be 1.5 spaced, printed in font size 12, Times New Roman, on one side of quality. Manuscripts and illustrations should be submitted in duplicate and the author should retain one copy. The sequence should be Title, Author’s name, and affiliation, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials, and Methods, Results and Discussion, Acknowledgements and References. When necessary, subheads may be used within each major Heads, Heads and subheading should be in bold font.
The title page should contain –
A title should be concise and informative and contain the major keywords that accurately describe the content of the paper and suggested running head (30 characters or less). Do not use abbreviations in the title.
The abstract should be brief and does not contain more than 250 words. A well-prepared abstract gives a clear indication of the objective, scope, results and principal conclusion of the article which enables the reader to identify the basic content of an article quickly and more accurately, So that readers may determine whether the full text will be of particular interest to them or not.
Each paper should have three to six keywords, in addition to those already present in the title. Keywords are used by the indexing and abstracting services
The introduction should present sufficient background information and the object of the investigation to understand the purpose of the current work and its significance.
The Materials and Methods section should provide sufficient technical details to allow others to replicate and build on published results. New procedures should be described in detail while previously published procedures can be briefly described and appropriately cited. Sources of all important chemicals, equipment, or microbial strains should be indicated.
Results should provide a concise description and can be presented in the form of figures, tables, and text which should clearly and accurately describe the experimental findings of the study. It is recommended to use past indefinite verb tense in describing the results.
The Discussion section should be focused on the interpretation of the results, but not reiterate the results. The discussion should be completed with a major conclusion that answers the question specified in the introductory part of the article. The Results and Discussion sections may be combined into one section.
Tables should be provided in Word or Excel format and must be editable (not pasted in as a picture). Each table should be numbered consecutively in numerals and should include a caption and column headings that contain enough information. Units of measurement should be abbreviated and placed below the column headings. Explanatory footnotes should be related to the legend or table using superscript, lower-case letters. All abbreviations should be defined after the footnotes, beneath the table body.
Figures should be provided separately from the main text. Figures must be cited in the order that they appear. The figure number must appear well outside the boundaries of the image itself. Include a legend describing the figure and it should be below the figure. Provide each axis with a brief but informative title (including units of measurement). It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that figures are provided at a sufficiently high resolution to ensure high-quality reproduction in the final article. 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.
Acceptable file formats - TIFF, JPEG, PNG, and EPS.
Acknowledgments of any financial support and personal assistance for the work being published must be indicated in a separate paragraph, before the references.
The References section should include all relevant journal articles, books, and patents cited in the text, tables or figures. Arrange the reference list in the order of their appearance in the main text, and then number the list consecutively (not in alphabetic order) and should be cited in the text in superscripts only. The author(s) must check the accuracy of all reference numbers, as JPAM will not be responsible for incorrect reference citations.
The referencing styles shown in the examples below should be used.
