Manuscripts and the data therein must not be published elsewhere, nor been submitted to another journal.
Manuscripts must be written by MS Word software. A4 paper size and double-spaced format must be used at the main text. All pages and lines should be numbered continuously.

Introduction: It is essential to present adequate background of the field of research. The main reasons and objectives of the research paper must be explained in this section.
Materials and Methods: An overview of the research layout should be clearly reported. The previous published procedures would be cited and methods used in the manuscript should be described in detail. Types of analysis should be also mentioned in this section.
Results and discussion: A logical sequence should be considered to present results (tables and figures). Authors have to avoid use and describe the same data in different forms repeatedly. In discussion part, the importance and significance of the results should be explored in detail. The results would be considered in relation to hypotheses mentioned in the introduction section. There is no problem to combine results and discussion by authors. All concluding remarks and important findings should be integrated in this section.
Acknowledgment: Information related to research grant, assistance of colleagues and notes of appreciation should be written in acknowledgement section.
In-text Citation: In the text, mention the author’s name followed by the year in parentheses: Smith (2000). If there are two authors use ‘and’: Ahmadvand and Koocheki (1998); When in-text reference is made to a work by four or more authors, the first name followed by et al., should be used: MacDonald et al., (2002).
