Guide to Authors

International Journal of Science, Research & Sustainability (IJSRS) publishes peer reviewed papers on all displaces of science, as reviews (solicited or submitted), research articles (full length and short communications). Contributions are considered for evaluation on the understanding that they are original and not being considered for publication elsewhere. Upon preliminary evaluation and checking for plagiarism and format by the Editorial Office, the papers are sent to referees (experts in the field) for evaluation. The decision of the Editor-in-Chief to publish a paper in concurrence with referee(s) opinion is considered final.

Scope of Journal

Although IJSRS considers broad spectrum of submitted papers for publication, it is a prerequisite that the contributions have close relevance to experimental work in engineering disciplines. For the convenience of authors, the priority areas(but not limited too) Include: Life Sciences, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Genetic Engineering, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Environmental Sciences.

Submission of Manuscripts

Contributions in English may be sent by email on 0n preliminary review of chief editor, and if found suitable is sent out for review. The manuscripts not on the format are returned to authors. Authors are discouraged to cite references from IJSRS in order to avoid self-citations. Review of a paper normally takes about one month, and decision, whatsoever, is conveyed to the corresponding author. After acceptance, correction of proofs and transfer of copyrights to IAARP publishers, a paper is published on its turn. Reviews: IJSRS encourages the submission of reviews by the authors who have considerable attainment in their fields of specialization. For any other query, the authors are encouraged to contact the Editor-in-Chief at


Except in the case of reviews, contributions should be no longer than the equivalent of six printed journal pages inclusive of tables, illustrations and references. Short communications should follow the requirements for original research papers, but the text must not exceed 1000 words. To strictly follow the style, authors should download sample paper and organize their papers strictly in line with it. A full-length paper must be organized as:

Title page containing following fields:
a. Manuscript type: Original Research Article/Review article/shot communication

b. Title: Complete title of your manuscript (species names without authority’s name)

c. Running Title: Should not be more than 60 characters with spaces)

d. Authors: Full names of the contributors along with their affiliation (please do not use abbreviations)

e. For correspondence: e-mail address of the corresponding authors MUST be given

f. Novelty statement (4-5 points): Highlighting scientific merit of the work reported in the manuscript

Abstract: (no more than 200‒250 word emphasizing objectives, important results, conclusions and practical implications)

Keywords: (four to six)

Introduction: (must highlight background of the problem in the light of recent literature, hypothesis to be tested and specific objectives)

Materials and Methods: (should be to the point and explicit)

Results: (should include statistical significance of treatment effect etc.)

Discussion: (should be logical and reflecting the originality of the contribution and findings discussed in the light of most recent literature)

Conclusion: (should be brief and reflect the essence of the work)

Acknowledgement: (should be as brief as possible)


Style of references for text quotation is: a) with date in parentheses, e.g. as demonstrated by Chirnside (1992); or (b) with names and dates in parentheses, e.g. according to recent findings (Chirnside, 1992); (c) Basra and lqbal (1999); (d) as described previously (Basra and lqbal, 1999); (e) Rikihisa et al. (1999) or (I) as described previously (Rikihisa et al., 1999). If more than two authors the first author should be given followed by et al., where lists of references are cited. In the text two or more references should be placed in chronological order, e.g., (Jones, 1967; Chirnside, 1992). If more than one reference by the same author(s) published in the same year are cited, they should be distinguished from each other by placing a, b, etc. after the year, References at the end of paper should be alphabetically arranged. Names of all authors should be included. References should be set as follows:
