Units and Measurements
Ø SI standards for units and values should be followed.
Ø Be cautious while presenting the multiplication and/or divisions of units.
Ø For Example: ms-1 is reciprocal of milliseconds where m.s-1 is meters per second.
Ø m.kg/(s3.A) is correct where m.kg/s3/A is not correct.
Ø Zero should be used while representing decimals like 0.25 but not .25 and comma should not be used in the place of period.
Ø 20 cm × 40 cm is correct but not 20 × 40 cm.
Ø 1 MHz to 10 MHz or (1 to 10) MHz is correct but not 1 MHz-10 MHz or 1 to 10 MHz.
Ø 25 °C to 30 °C or (25 to 30) °C is correct but not 25 °C-30 °C or 25 to 30 °C.
Ø 100 g ± 5 g or (100 ± 5) g is correct but not 100 ± 5 g.
Ø 50 % ± 5 % or (50 ± 5) % is correct but not 50 ± 5 %.
Ø Space before °C and % is not mandatory but follow the consistency throughout the manuscript.
Ø Unit symbols and unit names should not be mixed and mathematical operations should not be applied to unit names.
Ø Single space should be given before any Unit symbol in combination with preceding numerical.
Ø Thin space should be given before and after mathematical symbols (keyboard and non-keyboard).
Ø Equations and Formulas should be in the Math Type format only in the final PDF. Authors are being requested to submit their formula/equation preferably in Math Type.
Ø Inline and simple equations should be provided in text format only.
Figures and Tables
Ø All legends should end with a full stop.
Ø All Figures and Tables should be cited in body text in chronical order and they should follow Title case only.
Ø In case of using any abbreviations in the legends, they must be mentioned in the abbreviations section.
Ø Figure and Table foot notes must not end with a full stop
Ø Space should not be given after representative characters such as alphabets, numbers and asterisks etc. in Figure and Table foot notes. Representation of such characters should be in superscript only.
Ø If two figures or tables are cited simultaneously in the body text, then they must be cited as “Figure 1 and 2”, “Table 1 and 2”, “Figure 1 and Table 1”, etc.
Ø If more than two figures or tables are cited simultaneously in the body text, then they must be cited as “Figure 1–5”, “Table 1–5”, etc.
Ø Language of references should be in English only.
Ø References should be cited in Square brackets “[ ]” in the manuscript.
Ø Title in references should be in sentence case only.
Ø Only scientific names should be italicized.
Ø Any additional references without citation in the body text are not allowed.
Ø Range of references should be separated by dash (–) and space should not be there before and after dash (2–11).
Ø Any sentence/paragraph should not start with the reference without author name. For example:
-Single author: “Author name  summarized the different harvesting”.
-Two authors: “Author name and Author name  reported that genetically engineered green algae”.
-More than two authors: “Author name et al.  made use of simple large unit micro strainers”.
