Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

Articles submitted should conform to the guidelines indicated below. Before you submit, please study the author checklist provided at the end of this document. Following is the chronological order of topics to be included in the article:

  1. Title
  2. Abstract
  3. Keywords
  4. Introduction
  5. Concept headings (include statistical methodology, if any)
  6. Discussion
  7. Conclusion
  8. Acknowledgements (If any)
  9. References

Article Title

The title should be concise and specific to the topic of the article Avoid using abbreviations in the title. Titles should be presented in title case, meaning that all words except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions should be capitalized. All botanical names should be in italics. E.g. An Experimental Study of Classification Algorithms for Crime Prediction

Author names & Affiliations

Provide first names or initials (if used), middle names or initials (if used), and surnames for all authors. Affiliation details should include—department, university or organization, city, state and country for all authors. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author with asterisk (*) against his/her name. Only the corresponding author’s email address should be provided in the article. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to ensure that the author list and the summary of the author contributions to the study are accurate and complete. 

Abstract & Keywords

The abstract introduces the article and should not exceed 300 words. It should mention the techniques used without going into methodological detail and should summarize the most important results. Please do not include any citations in the abstract and avoid using abbreviations if possible.

Authors should provide 4-6 keywords for indexing purposes. Keywords should be written in title case and separated by comma. Avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of').

Headings

For a better understanding of the content in the article, we encourage authors to number the article headings in Arabic style format. Headings should follow title case, meaning that all words except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions should be capitalized. All botanical names should be in italics. 

Abbreviations

All abbreviations should be defined on first use in the text along with the abbreviation in parenthesis. E.g. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Units and Symbols

Symbols should be used while referring to alpha, beta, mu, etc (Ex: α, β, µ, etc).

Figures: General guidelines

Figures Format & Resolution: Authors are requested to supply high-resolution versions of the figures in TIFF, JPEG or EPS format. We require that figures be created at a minimum resolution of 300 ppi.

File size: The file sizes should not exceed 20 MB.

File naming: Naming of figure files should be simple indicating the serial number and last name of author. E.g. if author’s name is Bob Marley, Figure 1 should be named as “Fig 1_Marley”.

Figure submission: Figures should be submitted after uploading the article (in step 4 of the submission process in supplementary files). In case of multiple files, upload the figures in order. E.g. Figure 1 should be uploaded first followed by Figure 2, 3 and so on.

Citation: All figures must be cited in the text and authors should indicate where they are to be inserted in the text. E.g. <insert figure 1 here>.

Figure captions: These have to be included in the text and provided sequentially at the end of the article. The captions should be short having 10-15 words in sentence case style. E.g. Figure 1. Percentage of detection rate vs. number of nodes.

Permissions: Authors should obtain permission from authors for copyright figures and tables before submitting to the Journal

All figures will be published under a Creative Commons Attribution License, which allows them to be freely used, distributed, and built upon as long as proper attribution is given. Please do not submit any figures that have been previously copyrighted unless you have express written permission from the copyright holder to publish under the CC license.

Tables: General guidelines

Tables should be included in the text file at the end of the article.

All tables should have a concise title and written as Table 1 with a period (.). 
E.g. Table 1. Stimulation settings

Footnotes can be used to explain abbreviations. Tables extending beyond 1 page should be avoided.

Acknowledgments

People who contributed to the work but do not fit the criteria for authors should be listed in the Acknowledgments, along with their contributions. Authors are requested to ensure that anyone named in the Acknowledgments agrees to being so named.
