STRUCTURE / FORMAT OF ARTICLE
TITLE PAGE INFORMATION
AUTHORS NAMES AND AFFILIATIONS
DIVISION OF ARTICLE
Research paper should be classified into clearly defined sections i.e. Abstract, Keywords Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion (combined), Conclusion, Acknowledgement and References as given below:-
A concise and factual abstract is required including place of study/experiment, study year, objective and brief methodology. The abstract should state briefly principal results with data and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be and stand alone. References and unnecessary details should be avoided. Acronyms and abbreviations should not form part of the abstract. Too lengthy abstracts are not encouraged. If any abbreviation is essential it must be defined at its first mention in the abstract.
Immediately after the abstract, provide minimum six keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of ‘). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be used. These keywords are used for indexing purposes and should be beyond the main title and abstract.
Introduction should give immediate importance to research being reported. Verbose language and things remotely related to research study should be avoided. Latest literature must be reviewed in this section. While reviewing the findings of earlier research workers, name of worker(s) be given with year following JAR style. Objective of study must be given at the end of introduction section.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
This section includes place of study, year of study and detailed methodology. If an already described/published method is employed, reference to that method should be given. The statistical methods used for data analysis be carefully and essentially stated with reference.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Results and Discussion are to be given under one heading instead separately. Clear and concise results need to be quoted with data values of different parameters studied. The results of study must be compared with findings of earlier scientists according to JAR style. Discussion should explore the significance of results. While discussing the results extensive citations and introductory sentences be avoided. The tables should be given brief title, Lettering a, b, c etc. or roman letter 1, 2, 3. should be employed to mark statistical significance instead of asterisk (*). At the base of tables, level of statistical significance and method applied should be clearly mentioned with reference. While reporting results only units related to metric system and symbols prescribed by International System of Units be employed.
The main conclusion of study may be presented in Conclusion Section comprising one or two paragraphs. However, in case of survey type studies, it may be extended including recommendations.
Collate acknowledgement in a separate section at the end of article may be given before References Section. In this section technical and financial help by any functionary/organization/institution may be acknowledged.
