Pharma Science Monitor-An International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences is a Quarterly published online Journal, which publishes innovative research papers, reviews, mini-reviews and short communications dealing with Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmaceutical/Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmacy Practice, Clinical and Hospital Pharmacy and Biotechnology of Pharmaceutical Interest). All manuscripts are subject to rapid peer review. Those of high quality (not previously published and not under consideration for publication in another journal) will be published without delay.
Manuscript Format

The preferred format of all manuscript is MS Word. Illustrations (figures) and images must be inserted in the manuscript at the position they should appear when published.

Preparation of Manuscript


Mode of Presenting Paper is English. Each manuscript should be typed double-spaced on A4 (8.5" × 11") paper size with 1 inch margins. It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement and References.

Title Page

Title page should contain title of the paper in bold face, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the address in normal face lower case. The author to whom all correspondence be addressed should be denoted by an asterisk mark. The title should be as short as possible and precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention "*Address For correspondence" and provide a functional e-mail address. Address of the corresponding author to whom all correspondence may be sent should be given only if it is different from the address already given under authors' names.

Abstract
Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.

Keywords
Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract

Introduction
A short introduction of the research problem followed by a brief review of literature and objective of the research.

Materials and Methods

 
Describe the materials used in the experiment, year of experimentation, site etc. Describe the methods implied for collection of data in short.

Results and Discussion


This segment should focus on the fulfillment of stated objectives as given in the introduction. It should contain the findings presented in the form of tables, figures and photographs.

References
Should be numbered numerically consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables and legends by Arabic numerals in superscript in square brackets. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure.

Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a brief title in capital letters normal face. Tables should not be very large that they run more than one A4 sized page.

Abbreviations, Units, etc

 The journal strictly follows the rules defined in the IUPAC Manual of symbols and terminology for physicochemical quantities and units.

Short Communication

The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 6 pages in length in total. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion- all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.

Review Article

Should be about 15-30 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers.
