Check the following criteria for submission before sending manuscripts to the Journal.
The names and affiliation of all contributors, including the corresponding author’s contact details (Telephone, Fax and E-mail address).
The abstract should be concise and fully self-explanatory, the subject should be outlined briefly, the context of the experiments should be mentioned, important data should be indicated and significant findings and conclusions should be noted. Within 300 words or less, the abstract will summarize the substance of the section. It is necessary to use standard nomenclature and avoid abbreviations. A description of the background, methods, results and conclusion of the study should be included in the preferred format. The abstract should be followed by a list of keywords (3-10) and abbreviations.
Introduction: The introduction should set the paper’s tone by providing a clear overview of the study, the literature on the subject of the analysis, and the approach or solution suggested. The description should be sufficiently general to draw the attention of a reader from a wide range of scientific disciplines.
Materials and Methods: This section should give a comprehensive overview of the study design. Detailed material or participant descriptions, comparisons, interventions and analytical types should be included. Even new procedures should be described in detail, however; previously published procedures should be referenced and important changes to existing procedures should be briefly mentioned. Capitalize the name of the trade and include the name and address of the manufacturer.
Results: The results paragraph should provide full details of the experiment needed to support the study’s conclusion. The results should be written in the past when describing the findings in the experiments of the authors. Previously published observations in the present tense should be written down. Findings can be combined or discussed in a separate section. The findings should not include speculation and thorough interpretation of data, but should be included in the discussion section.
Acknowledgement: This section includes recognition of individuals, details of grants, funds, etc.
Note: If an author fails to submit his / her work in accordance with the above instructions, they are pleased to keep clear headings, namely subheadings.
References: Only chapters/papers published or accepted should be included in the list of references. Abstract meetings, conference discussions or papers submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. A letter from the relevant authors should support all personal communications.
The US Publication House Journals uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. In the order they appear in the text, references are mentioned and numbered. The reference number in brackets should indicate citations in the text. Multiple quotations should be separated by commas within a single set of brackets. They should be given as a range when there are three or more sequential citations. Example:”… now enable biologists to track thousands of gene expression simultaneously in a single experiment [ 1,5-7,28].” Before ordering the quotations, make sure that the chapter parts are in the correct order for the relevant e-book. At the end of the chapter should be the figure captions and tables.
Authors were requested to provide as follows (preferably PubMed) at least one online link for each article. Because all references will be linked as much as possible electronically to the papers they quote, it is crucial to properly format the references. For the list of references, please use the following style.
Note: If there are additional authors, please list the first six authors and then add “et al.”
These should be used to a minimum and built as straightforward as possible. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit tables as the .doc format. Double-spaced tables should be typed, with headings and footnotes. Each table should be numbered in Arabic numerals on a separate page and supplied with a heading and a legend. In reference to the text, tables should be self-explanatory. Within the legend, rather than within the text, the specifics of the methods used in the experiments should be described. The same data should not be presented or repeated in the text in both table and graph form. Cells can be copied and pasted into a word document from an Excel spreadsheet, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.
Note: Unless the submission is in PDF format, the writer will be required to keep the same in .doc format to help effectively complete the process.
For photographic images, the preferred file formats are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images on different layers with separate components, please send us the Photoshop files.
All images must be of the intended display size or higher with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. For details, see the Image Quality Chart. Image files must also be cropped as close as possible to the actual image.
Use Arabic numerals to identify their parts with figures and upper case letters (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include a description sufficient to make the figure understandable without reading the chapter’s text. You should not repeat the information given in the legends in the text.
These should be typed in a separate sheet in numerical order.
Tables and Equations as Graphics
If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, send them as separate files in TIFF or EPS format (i.e. a file that contains only one equation’s data). They can only be submitted as graphics if tables cannot be encoded as XML / SGML. When using this method, it is important that the font size is consistent and legible throughout all submissions in all formulas and tables.
Suggested Equation Extraction Method
Discrete elements of the additional information (e.g. statistics, tables) referred to in the chapter’s main text at an appropriate point.
Included in the Supplementary Information (optional) summary diagram / figure.
Wherever possible, all Supplementary Information is provided as a single PDF file. File size within the supplementary information limits permitted. The maximum size of the images should be 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).
Proofs and Reprints
Electronic proofs will be sent to the relevant writer as a PDF file as an e-mail attachment. Page proofs are known as the chapter’s final version. No changes will be made in the chapter at the proof stage, except for typographical or minor clerical errors. Authors will be provided with free electronic access to the chapter’s full text (HTML and PDF). Authors can download the PDF file free of charge from which to print unlimited copies of their chapters.
Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check compliance with all of the following items from their submission, and submissions may be returned to authors who do not comply with these guidelines.
The application has not been published before, nor is it for review before another paper (or a clarification has been provided in the Editor’s Comments).
The application folder is in the format of a paper file in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF or WordPerfect.
Where available, reference URLs were provided.
The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; uses italics instead of emphasizing (with the exception of URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures and tables are placed in the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
The text adheres to the requirements of style and bibliography outlined in the Author Guidelines found in About the Journal.

What are Article Processing Charges?
The U.S. Publication House, like other Open Access publishers, charges an article processing charge once an article has been accepted for publication. These fees cover the cost of transforming a manuscript into a finished article. The United States Publication House is committed to making publication costs as clear as possible. The charges are clearly shown on the home page of the journal for each journal.
It passes through the many different departments at The US Publication House when a manuscript is submitted:
